For 2013, the Mercedes-Benz GLK line expands to include a new BlueTEC diesel-powered GLK250 (arriving mid-2013). The GLK350 gets a new 3.5-liter V6 with better power, response and efficiency. There's new front- and rear-end styling, a redesigned interior, improvements to the power steering and some new equipment offerings.
While it may be the smallest and least expensive SUV in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the 2014 GLK is also the most noticeable, with aggressive styling, loads of great features and a safety record worthy of praise. Built from the highly regarded C-Class platform, the GLK delivers the same smooth ride and admirable safety features of the C-Class sedan, but in a vehicle that is ultimately more versatile, not to mention uniquely styled. Overall space inside the 2014 GLK crossover SUV is not as generous as the Audi Q5 or BMW X3, but there's still adequate room for four passengers and their belongings. The addition of the BlueTEC turbodiesel in the GLK250 offers another reason to seek out this baby Benz: class-leading fuel economy.
