Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Overview

The GLK is competitive among compact luxury SUVs, and overall it is a much more appealing vehicle than the less-expensive GLA. Its 3.5-liter V6 is smooth and punchy, and returned 21-mpg overall. The GLK rides well, except for some side-to-side rocking on rough pavement. Handling is fairly nimble. The high seating position gives a good view out and the front seats are firm and well-shaped. Rear leg room is stingy, and the wide doorsills impede access. The controls take some time to master, but are more logical than those in some newer Mercedes-Benzes. The interior is plus and luxurious. Reliability has been above average for both V6 and diesel versions. A redesigned 2016 model called the GLC will go on sale in November.
