For 2010, Mercedes-Benz introduces its new sport utility vehicle, the 2010 GLK Class. The GLK comes with a fuel-sipping 3.5L V6, 7-speed automatic transmission and available 4MATIC full-time four-wheel drive. The GLK has an estimated highway mileage of 23 mpg, but can still get going quickly, with a 0-60 time of just 6.4 seconds. 2010 GLK interior features include two-zone automatic climate control system, 5-inch color display and an available rear-seat entertainment system featuring two eight-inch screens with wireless headphones and dual-source DVD player. Mercedes also added a sophisticated Agility Control suspension to provide agile on-road comfort with off-road capability.Read more Read less
The GLK-Class is an entirely new model for 2010. The compact, V6-powered sport-utility vehicle echoes some of the design cues of the larger G-Class and GL-Class but is an all-new design.
The look of a larger SUV; manageable size and maneuverability; interior space; strong acceleration
The GLK-Class borrows the appearance of Mercedes-Benz' larger sport-utility vehicles but is actually very manageable size for city-dwellers. The combination of boxy exterior style and best-in-class aerodynamics should please most shoppers, too. Inside, the GLK-Class feels more car-like, which most buyers will appreciate, along with the brisk acceleration from the V6. The GLK-Class is very competitively priced as well; with its base level of equipment, it's no more expensive than some of its luxury rivals.
