It's no surprise that the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class offers the best resale value in its class. After all, it combines the luxury, performance, and panache expected of the Mercedes-Benz brand into a tidy package that's priced low enough to be more widely accessible than you might think.
You can choose between two different powerplants for the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. The GLK350 offers a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 302 horsepower; 4Matic models send it to all four wheels, while a rear-wheel-drive model sends it just to the rear wheels and shaves a bit off the GLK's price. The GLK250 BlueTEC 4Matic offers a 2.1-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine that comes only in all-wheel drive. All GLK-Class models come standard with a 7-speed automatic transmission.
But that's just the mechanical bits. Outside, the GLK-Class is all Benz, its sharply angled lines giving this compact luxury SUV a ruggedly handsome look. Inside, the GLK-Class comes lavishly equipped, with dual-zone climate control, a 14-way power driver's seat, Bluetooth with audio streaming, and advanced safety systems like Attention assist, which monitors the driver for signs of drowsiness.
Prices for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class start at a little more than $40,000 for the GLK250 or GLK350 with 4Matic; you can shave a couple thousand off the GLK350 if you opt for rear-wheel drive. Prices climb quickly, and can easily push past $60,000. However, it's also possible to keep the price under $50,000, and the GLK-Class will stay closer to that price than any of its competitors.
Slightly smaller than the GLK-Class, the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class offers the styling and features you want, but at a starting price that's less than $35,000.
The aggressively styled Lexus NX 200t costs less than the larger RX, but doesn't skimp when it comes to luxury and performance features.
