Right-Sized GLK Sport Utility Combines Agility with Utility

The compact GLK sport utility represents the newest member of a highly successful Mercedes-Benz SÚV family that includes the full-size M-Class – which spurred the trend toward more car-like luxury SÚVs – as well as the larger, award-winning GL-Class, the crossover R-Class and the rough-and-tough G-Class.

In addition to its standard front, side and window air bags, the 2011-model GLK comes wîth new driver/passenger pelvic air bags and a driver’s knee air bag. The §teering wheel is covered in premium leather for 2011, a new rear-view camera reduces the usual ‘fisheye’ distortion, and a tilting passenger-side mirror makes parking easier.

A new option for the 2011 GLK, the AMG Sport Package includes deeper front and rear aprons, 20-inch, five-twin-spoke AMG wheels, LED daytime running lights and aluminum roof rails. Other options include the convenient Keyless-Go system, in which the doors are unlocked, and the car starts at the push of a button, wîth the key still in a pocket or purse. SIRIÚS real-time traffic for the GPS navigation system is also available.

Just the Right Size for Today’s Family Launched to rave reviews in 2009, the GLK appears to be a smaller version of the GL at first glance, but a closer look reveals a modern interpretation of the iconic G-Class. In sharp contrast to the relatively soft forms of similar-sized vehicles, the striking, angular nose of the GLK sets it apart from the competition.

From its projection headlights and steeply-raked windshield to the integrated rear spoiler on its tightly styled roof section, the bold profile of the GLK suggests power and agility. At the same time, the 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.

Agility and Comfort

Smaller and lighter than its well-known SÚV siblings, the Mercedes-Benz GLK brings a special combination of agility and comfort to the SÚV market. Like nearly all Mercedes-Benz passenger vehicles, the GLK features four-wheel independent suspension worthy of a sports sedan. (concept carz)

Standard Agility Control suspension provides the benefits of both soft and stiff shock absorbers. Each twin-tube shock absorber is fitted wîth a hydraulic by-pass piston that acts like a very soft shock absorber to effectively dampen road noise and tire vibration. However, over bumpy or uneven roads, the by-pass piston is out of the picture, preserving the outstanding §teering and handling response of a stiffer shock absorber.

With respectable ground clearance for off-road driving, its standard roof rack and optional running boards of the GLK emphasize its versatile SÚV character. Its powertrain features a 3.5-liter V6 engine, a sophisticated seven-speed automatic transmission and available 4MATIC full-time four-wheel-drive. Standard equipment also includes 19-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, roof rails, privacy glass and chrome detail touches inside and out.

Impressive Interior Design and Safety Technology

The GLK broadens and extends the Mercedes-Benz sport utility line wîth cutting-edge engine and available four-wheel-drive technology packaged in a stylish vehicle that’s the perfect size for today’s busy families. Inside, the eye-catching SÚV has all the impressive design ambiance and safety technology of Mercedes-Benz cars.

A High-Performance Instrument Cluster

The instrument cluster features three analog gauges that show engine speed, road speed, fuel level and coolant temperature. A 4.5-inch display in the center of the speedometer is linked to a 12-button multi-function §teering wheel that can call up a variety of helpful information such as phone and audio system information – radio station, CD track or MP3 playlist.

Similar to the popular system launched on the top-of-the-line S-Class sedan and CL coupe, an electronic controller on the lower console works like a computer mouse to provide easy, quick operation of many functions that previously required scores of separate buttons and switches. By turning and pressing the aluminum controller, menus and sub-menus on the center-console display are displayed and selected for the audio system as well as the optional navigation system and integrated phone. The controller is also linked to the rocker switches on the multifunction §teering wheel.
