2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK Seat Room and Comfort: Pros

2011 4dr SUV 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic AWD
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. see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review

If you are 6' plus like me, you will have to adjust the front seat forward if you want passengers to ride with you unless they are quite small. But this is a perfect city hauler for a single or couple. see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review

We've only had the GLK-350 for a week. The backseat seems a little on the small side. see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review

Wife and I are 5.9 and 5.5 respectively. kids can easily kick the seat (whcih in the Benz you want there feet off things). Not bad in sense it feels roomy when in it, but if you are looking for LOTS of space, look elsewhere. see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review

When the front seats are positioned comfortably aft for a six footer, the second row passengers have way too little leg room. see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review

2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr SUV 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
excellent choice: solid, serene, safe, reliable tho a tad small in rear seats (same as c class on which glk is based, so no surprise). excellent highway cruiser, 6-11 hour non stop drives on highways leaves one feeling fine. found ex loaner as cpo, 19k miles for $30k, prem 1, real bargain. update jun 2014: traded for cpo 2013 vw passat s 2.5 automatic in jun 2014, cut my operating costs in half but still get roomy, serene, engaged german driving experience. the glk needed $1500 to pass inspection, mainly new tires. the glk was a fine car but i was tired of the ongoing high costs and im thinking of a move to an area w/o a nearby mb dealer. the cpo vw 3 free 10k interval services, two more warranty years with a cpo for $16600 before tradein, $9100 otd after trade, glk payoff, ttl. for $4k more i could have gotten a cpo 2014 passat wolfsburg 1.8. after several test drives over several days i chose the cheaper 2.5. why? i prefer cloth seats (s), steel wheels for snowy/potholed nothern roads, i have standalone plug/play sirius radio, 2.5 is fine in passat, saved $4k. passat is cavern-like roomy, quiet. my engineer pilot son who also has an mb c class agreed that the passat is almost 90% of mb at 50% of the cost. i get 26mpg suburban, 36mpg highway in the 2.5 s. the new 1.8 is totally (!) transforms the jetta but not so much the passat, at least not $4k worth for me now. the 2.5 gets an undeserved bad rap from the car media. see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review

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. see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review

The 3.5 Liter V6 makes excellent power and has a very flat torque curve. The 7 speed transmission is excellent. The AWD system is quiet at interstate speeds. Overall, the car performs like a reasonably quick sports sedan. see full Mercedes-Benz GLK review
