Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Overview

Based on the C-Class, the GLK offers the same 3.5-liter V6 found in other Mercedes sedans and SUVs. Fuel economy is a competitive 21 mpg overall. This small SUV 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. The excellent front seats are firm and well shaped. Leg room in the rear is stingy, and the wide doorsills impede access. Despite a freshening that brought new controls that were an improvement over the old design, they remain somewhat convoluted. Fortunately the interior was improved at the same time, with more luxurious materials. A four-cylinder diesel is also available. Reliability has been above average.
