Vehicle Overview
More luxury brands are entering the small-crossover segment, including Mercedes-Benz, which expanded its lineup of luxury crossovers for 2010 by adding the five-seat GLK-Class. Offered in GLK350 form with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and either rear-wheel drive or 4Matic all-wheel drive, it features recognizable Mercedes styling cues as well as available high-tech features.

The GLK350 competes with luxury crossovers like the Acura RDX, BMW X3 and Land Rover LR2.


New for 2011
A knee airbag is new for the GLK350's second season. A telematics system called "mbrace" is a new option that does tricks such as locating the vehicle in a parking lot or remotely locking and unlocking doors using a smartphone. A new AMG Sport Package includes AMG bumpers and 20-inch twin five-spoke wheels, LED daytime running lights and aluminum roof rails.

Exterior
With its angular exterior styling, the GLK350 bears a strong resemblance to its big brother, the GL-Class. The GLK350's large front grille is divided by two horizontal bars, and in the middle is a large Mercedes three-point star. Upright roof pillars make for tall side windows, and the back of the crossover is finished with a liftgate spoiler and twin exhaust outlets.
  • Standard 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Optional 20-inch rims
  • Optional panoramic moonroof and power liftgate
  • Optional adaptive bi-xenon headlights, cornering lights and LED taillights


Interior
The GLK350's cabin takes elements from Mercedes-Benz's entry-level C-Class sedan, as it features a similar steering wheel, center control panel and gauge styling. Models equipped with Mercedes' optional Comand system have a knob controller on the center console that's used to navigate menus on the 7.5-inch dash screen. Among knob-based control systems, Comand's interface is one of the more intuitive ones available. The system's screen can show things like radio station information and map data from the navigation system.
  • Standard simulated leather upholstery
  • Optional real leather
  • Front bucket seats and three-seat rear bench
  • Optional "mbrace" telematics system
  • Real wood and aluminum trim
  • Standard dual-zone automatic air conditioning


Under the Hood
The GLK350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 268 horsepower and 258 pounds-feet of torque.
  • Seven-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear- or all-wheel drive
  • 3,500-pound maximum towing capacity


Safety
Standard safety equipment includes:
  • Antilock brakes
  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Knee airbag
  • Electronic stability system
  • Active head restraints for the front seats
