I have banged on about MB's seeming reluctance to develop RHD 4matic version for its C and E class saloons and estates for years now and the argument has always been that its not economically viable to develop a RHD version for the world market. While this may be true for the 4matic saloons/estates what this decision meant was that Mercedes hasn't marketed the GLK in the UK. When first released the story in 2008 was the RHD version was "in development" followed later by talk of a 2WD version-- we are still waiting? While accepting there may still be economic reasons for this, have you seen the numbers of Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage, Hyundai i35, Skoda Yeti, VW Tiguan, Land Rover Freelander, Honda CRV, Audi Q5, BMW X3' s knocking about? The Mercedes bean-counters may have saved a little on development costs of a RHD 4x4 system but without a mid size 4X4 such as the GLK they have lost a huge number of sales in the UK to rival manufacturers.
