4dr SUV 268-horsepower 3.5L V6 7-speed shiftable automatic AWD

Why the 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK?


despite being a very smooth, soft ride, the GLK corners sharply, and has a solid feel, without feeling like it wants to roll.

Ride smoothness

terrible roads in Minnesota. Good ground clearance and shocks take up most of the bumps you cannot avoid. It feels like a magic carpet.


very nice on the freeway--noise levels markedly quieter than my minivan.

Front seat room

I have a problem with headroom. So many cars give me less than a half inch from my scalp to the frame on the sunroof. That hurts over bumps, not to mention what my hair looks like when I get out. GLK has over an inch of space for me.

Powertrain performance

Okay, it is not a Corvette. But when it comes to merging into traffic, or dodging they guy who does not know what a turn signal is for, the GLK has everything it needs. I never found myself wishing I had just a bit more power.
