We already told you how the Traverse and Flex will vie in the marketplace this autumn as Chevrolet's and Ford's first full-size, three-row crossover sport/utes. Next year, Mercedes-Benz and Audi will launch their GLK350 and Q5, two compact luxury crossovers to take on the BMW X3, Infiniti EX35, Acura RDX, and upcoming Volvo XC60 and future competitors from Cadillac and Saab. This size crossover is most popular in Europe, and while Mercedes builds the M- and GL-Class in Alabama, the GLK will be built in Europe and go on sale in January as a 2010 model. The Q5 hits the market sometime in the first quarter of 2009 as a 2009 model.
