New For 2014

After a fairly big update for 2013 and the addition of the GLK250 BlueTec diesel model midway through the 2013 model year, 2014 is pretty much status quo for the GLK.

Vehicle Summary

The Mercedes-Benz GLK is the brand's smallest SUV. Although its boxy profile and upright styling is supposed to suggest a connection to the militaristic G-wagen, the GLK is in fact based on the C-Class sedan. The GLK had a fairly comprehensive update for 2013, when it was treated to a significantly upgraded interior and a mildly tweaked exterior. The GLK is offered with Mercedes' widely available 3.5-liter V-6 or a four-cylinder turbodiesel, with rear- or four-wheel drive.


The GLK's compact footprint makes it easy to park and maneuver, and yet this crossover still offers very good accommodations for four adults (a fifth is a squeeze). The upright body and large windows also make for good outward visibility. Although those practical virtues are nice, the GLK suffers something of a style deficit, particularly for a Mercedes-Benz. Last year's minor makeover and the addition of standard nineteen-inch wheels didn't do much to address that situation. Nor is the GLK as fun to drive as rivals such as the BMW X3 and the Range Rover Evoque.

The GLK is available in two models, the GLK350 and the GLK250 BlueTec. The GLK350 is the volume offering and can be had with rear-wheel drive or 4Matic all-wheel drive. Its 3.5-liter V-6 makes 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is 19/25 mpg with RWD and 18/25 mpg with 4WD. Buyers looking for better fuel economy should consider the GLK250 BlueTec, which is rated at 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway -- some of the best figures in the compact SUV class. The 2.1-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel makes 200 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque and comes standard with 4Matic. Although many manufacturers charge a premium for a diesel engine, Mercedes prices the GLK250 4Matic between the rear-wheel-drive GLK350 and the GLK350 4Matic.

With its recent update, the GLK adopted the full suite of Mercedes-Benz driver aids. Lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, blind-spot warning and blind-spot assist, and automated parking assist are among the available features.

Mercedes Glk Spied Front Three Quarters 2
We recently spied the next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class crossover testing and, although the prototype appears to be in the early stages of development, the new GLK appears slightly larger than the current generation. The upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class will be based on the redesigned C-Class, which will most likely make its debut at the Detroit auto show this January.
