The GLK-Class was restyled for 2013.Key including overall length, height, and wheelbase and track are from 2011, however.

bumpers, new headlights, and a new grille the changes for 2013.The crisp of the 2013 GLK-Class parrot of the design features of the all-new GL-Class full-size SUV, the sharp crease along the of the hood.The new exterior design the looks of the 2013 GLK-Class and quite handsome, though it may not as much attention as does the new (all-new for 2012) or the new GL-Class for 2013).Some observers have to link the GLK-Class to the boxy Gelandewagen off-road SUV, but we see it.

The GLK-Class looks like a and there’s no mistaking it for anything but a even if the big three-pointed star in the of the grille was removed.The shape of the and headlights, the upright and angular all say Mercedes-Benz.

Measuring 178.3 in overall length (14.8 the GLK-Class is four inches than the BMW X3, five inches than the all-new 2013 RDX.The BMW X3 and Acura RDX are its primary Lexus RX is significantly larger, the Rover Evoque is significantly the Land Rover LR2 and Infiniti EX are designs, and the Audi Q3 is not available in the GLK-Class is nearly 11 inches than the M-Class sport-utility.

The GLK-Class rides on a 108.5-inch which is three inches than that of the Acura two inches shorter than of the BMW X3.Wheelbase is the distance between the and rear wheels, and a longer tends to allow a smoother and greater high-speed stability a shorter wheelbase.In terms of and height, the GLK-Class is comparable to the X3 and

The interior materials are attractive, double-stitching on some of the trim and of aluminum that give it an feel.The steering wheel and looks great.Burl walnut trim comes standard and it good, though there’s a bit too of it front of the passenger for our taste.From a practical standpoint, we wonder the rolltop lid that covers the console compartment will a gathering place for crumbs and though the seams on this one are tight.The HVAC controls are at the of the center stack and they way down there visually driving.

The GLK-Class is loaded technology, including mbrace2 which is intended to simplify our of many features it offers is to your smartphone while dining should a shady take your car for a joy ride.

The system worked well, we became familiar with mapping fell short in and remote areas, however, us we were in uncharted territory.

Driving Impression

driven GLK350 and GLK350 versions and found them to be whether on winding roads and on highways.These cars are easy to smooth but well-controlled, not floaty a Lexus RX.They are very at high speeds.Our co-driver sufficiently comfortable to cruise at 95 mph on a Interstate through West while carrying on a conversation.

is very responsive: It feels driving a sedan with a higher seating position.We had no with the feel or responsiveness of the steering, an emerging technology to improve fuel economy, other things.We found the easy to modulate for smooth, stops.Wind and road noise are muted.

The GLK350 delivers of power, and arguably leads the in terms of acceleration performance.The 4MATIC can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds, according to Mercedes-Benz America, which is quite GLK350 comes with a V6 engine rated at 302 horsepower at rpm and 273 pound-feet of torque at 3500-5250 comparison, the 2013 Acura RDX its 3.5-liter V6 makes just 273 at 6100 rpm and 251 pound-feet of torque at a rpm.The comparably priced BMW X3 with its inline-6 rates 240 and 221 pound-feet of torque, while the more expensive, turbocharged X3 delivers 300 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 300 of torque at 1300-5000 rpm.

Fuel economy for the GLK350 2WD is an 16/23 mpg City/Highway (or 18 miles per for the EPA Combined rating).GLK350 4MATIC is 16/21 mpg (or 18 mpg in the EPA Combined rating).Those are poor by the standards of the class.By the 2013 Acura RDX AWD gets an 19/27 mpg, while the BMW X3 is at 19/26 mpg.Premium gasoline is for the GLK350.Also, a Start/Stop feature is that shuts off the engine stopped (e.g. at intersections), quickly restarts the engine the accelerator is depressed.

The 7-speed transmission is smooth and responsive.We no need to use the semi-manual shifting put it in Drive and it shifted up and down and correctly on winding roads with elevation changes.

The 4MATIC can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 7.9 which is average performance, particularly quick nor particularly economy estimates were not when we went to press.The BlueTEC is rated at 190 horsepower at rpm and 369 pound-feet of torque at 1600-1800 torque figure is very suggesting the GLK250 will very responsive around GLK250 uses the same automatic with the same ratios as the GLK350.

4MATIC drive improves traction and in slippery conditions.We recommend 4MATIC, particularly for drivers who snow and ice but it’s beneficial on wet or on unpaved roads.The all-wheel could pay off in just one critical for folks in the sunshine states and it likely make the car more when trading in or selling.The need do nothing to invoke it’s on all the time, ready to in and send power to the front whenever the rear tires traction.While driving on dry roads, we not discern an appreciable difference a GLK350 with rear-wheel and one with 4MATIC all-wheel economy is about the same town with 4MATIC drive, but it does reduce on the highway a bit.

Several tire and wheel are available.We couldn’t tell difference on the road in ride feel or handling between the and 20-inch sizes.Clearly, the engineers did a job with suspension tuning and choices.

A number of safety come standard or optional on the Assist can alert a drowsy with an audible alert and a message on the dash and a coffee cup in the instrument cluster.It’s a good though the cars we drove seemed to be displaying the coffee cup Spot Assist warns the another vehicle is alongside the turn signals are used; Blind Spot Assist corrects the driver’s input if he or she to steer a car in the adjoining lane.Lane Assist vibrates the steering when the driver drifts out of his or her Lane Keeping Assist an intervention feature, correcting the course if the driver doesn’t the initial warning.

Parktronic is a option when parking, the proximity of obstacles on the screen a bar graph that shows the of objects the way a weather map shows the of storms; the system also audible warnings when you get to stuff.Active Parking Assist steer the car for you as you parallel park; the just works the gas and brakes.The parking aid is the rearview camera comes with the navigation in the MultiMedia Package because it can the driver spot a small behind the car when backing up.
