Overview

The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is a compact luxury crossover that sits to below the ML-Class and the larger GL-Class in the Mercedes lineup. The GLK-Class was introduced in 2009 as an all-new model, sharing platform components with the C-Class sedan. Changes are minor for 2011, with the automaker adding a driver's knee airbag and lower front seat airbags. There is also a new AMG Sport package on the options list.The GLK-Class is available in only one trim level, called the GLK350, but features a long list of available accessories and two drivelines. In base trim, the GLK350 is fitted with vinyl upholstery (MB Tex, as Mercedes brands it), full power accessories, cruise control, automatic headlamps, eight-way power front seats, dual-zone climate control, 19-inch alloy wheels, and more.

Popular equipment packages include full leather upholstery, bi-xenon headlamps, COMAND infotainment system, panoramic sunroof, power tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, and auto-dimming mirrors. An AMG Sport Package adds 20-inch wheels, roof rails, and unique bumper fascias.

Under the hood is a standard 3.5-liter, six-cylinder, rated at 268 horsepower. A seven-speed automatic transmission is the only gearbox offered, but customers are offered a choice between rear-wheel drive and optional permanent all-wheel drive-which the automaker calls 4MATIC. The EPA rates the fuel economy of the 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class between 16 mpg city, and 23 mpg highway, depending on driveline.

The 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 starts with a base price of about $36,000. The 4MATIC model is based at $38,000. Note that popular options or option groups will likely add to those base prices.
