Everything you like about Mercedes-Benz, in an efficient, fun-to-drive compact size.
Slotted in just below the M-Class in Mercedes' SUV lineup, the chiseled GLK has the driving feel of the C-Class sedan on which it's based. It carries five people and their gear in all-season luxury, plus it has an option that few in its class can boast: a diesel engine.
From our full review of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK: "At freeway speeds, the GLK glides calmly over expansion joints and uneven road surfaces, never losing its composure. When the road changes to twists and turns, the GLK's precise steering and big wheel/tire combo help it round curves with confidence."
The GLK-Class hasn't been given the high-performance AMG touch, but buyers can get the torque of a high-performance model with the available BlueTEC twin-turbo diesel. Not only does it provide 369 lb-ft of torque, but fuel economy is an impressive 28 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

Ed has tried out his GLK in town and on a long road trip and had this to say about his experience: "Drove from SC to North Dakota and back over three weeks--personal road trip for pleasure. Excellent handling in all situations. Great around town car, my primary use." Read more consumer reviews of the Mercedes-Benz GLK
