Kim Cattrall introduced us to the Mercedes-Benz Vision GLK Freeside Concept last month when the paparazzi spotted her filming with one for the upcoming Sex and the City movie. What we didn't know then was that Mercedes had double Vision and was planning two GLK concepts for Detroit. Today in Detroit, Ms. Cattrall introduced them both.

The Freeside (above) is the soft-roader able to tackle terrain a bit more rough the Rodeo Drive, while the Vision GLK Townside Concept (below) is more an urban warrior made for sporty sailing on smooth pavement. And though the Freeside looks like a baby GL-Class, the Townside looks a Subaru Forester with a three-pointed star stapled to its grille. Both are technically concepts still, though a production version of the Freeside is a lock. Expect a new four-cylinder BLUETEC diesel to power the GLK that Mercedes promises will over better-than-V6 performance with big fuel economy. Coupled to an efficient 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic, the GLK appears to have a lot to offer. Mercedes was mum on whether a version of the GLK Townside would be offered to the public, though. We prefer the Townside ourselves, though the three-bar grille is so Ford circa 2007.
