2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4Matic

Joe makes a good point about the GLK350's aggressive competitive base price, but the fact that you can pile $13,000 in options on it almost makes the base price a moot point. For comparison, the Volvo XC60 (which is only available in the U.S. with all-wheel drive) has a similar base price, but when well-equipped will be much closer to $40,000 than the $50,000 of the GLK350.

I find the styling of this vehicle to be uninspiring, at best. With its long, nearly horizontal snout, it reminds me of a Subaru Forester. Not that the Forester is a bad vehicle, but if I'm buying a premium German SUV, I don't want anyone to mistake it for a Japanese brand. I find nearly all the GLK's competitors to be more attractive.
