The 2010 Mercedes GLK350
Just the Right Size for Today's Family
At first glance, the new GLK appears to be a smaller version of the GL, but a closer look reveals a modern interpretation of the iconic G-Class. In sharp contrast to the relatively soft forms of other similar-sized vehicles, the striking, angular nose of the GLK sets it apart from the competition.
From its projection lights and steeply-raked windshield to the integrated rear spoiler on its tightly styled roof section, the bullish shape of the new GLK suggests power and agility. At the same time, the new GLK is just the right size for today's family, whether it's parking in town while running errands or making a cross-country trip.
One of the Most Fuel-Efficient Mercedes-Benz SUVs Ever
The new sport utility is destined to be one of the most fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz vehicles ever produced. Smaller and lighter than its well-known SUV siblings, the GLK features a fuel-sipping 3.5-liter V6 engine, a sophisticated seven-speed automatic transmission and available 4MATIC full-time four-wheel-drive.
Compared to other Mercedes-Benz SUVs, the GLK could prove to be the most agile member of the family. Like nearly all Mercedes passenger vehicles, the new GLK features four-wheel independent suspension worthy of a sports car. With respectable ground clearance for off-road driving, its integrated running boards, roof rack and skid plates emphasize the versatile SUV character of the new GLK.
Impressive Interior Design and Safety Technology
Inside, the new SUV has all the impressive design ambiance and safety technology of Mercedes-Benz cars. Standard equipment includes front and side air bags as well as window and knee air bags.
Much as the latest C-Class sedan has brought a new level of sporty driving and ride comfort to the sedan world, the new combination of agility and comfort to the SUV market. The GLK also broadens and extends the Mercedes-Benz sport utility line with cutting-edge engine and four-wheel-drive technology packaged in a stylish vehicle that's the perfect size for today's busy families.
