4dr SUV turbocharged 168hp 2.1L I4 Diesel 7-speed shiftable automatic AWD

Why the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK?

Exterior styling

Not the run of the mill rolling Jelly bean. One of the reasons I chose this car.

Fuel economy

The diesel option was the #1 reason I looked at the vehicule and the deciding point to go with it. At over 200 miles per day to communte, I needed the mileage numbers and in Quebec, diesel is less expensive than regular gas and way less than premium.

Driving position & visibility

Even coming from a 4x4 (Explorer Sportrac) I like the driving position and don't feel like I'm sitting on the road.

Why Not the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK?

Feature availability

Like all MB products, if you want options, you will have to pay. Some other companies have freebies (rear view camera etc), but the standard build is not as good so it's a consumer choice. Free bells and whistles or superiour build. I did like getting the Premium Package without the sunroof. Didn't want it ... didn't have to pay for it :)

Rear seat room & comfort

We are a couple with no kids and we rarely have visitors so the cramped rear seating is not a problem. Someone with teenage kids will want to seriously reconsider before getting a GLK. I know my Mom would not appreciate the ingress/egress ease as she has some limited mobility.

Other Features of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK

Cargo capacity

You get what you choose. Small SUV ... small cargo (with the rear seats up)
