All New Mercedes-Benz GLK 350

There are some vehicle that tell us in one look that they are ordinary and not the greatest vehicle that we would desire to be seen driving in. Yet, there are other cars that exude an atmosphere of grandeur and the instant you look at it you understand it is the car that you have always dreamed of. One of these cars is the brand Mercedes-Benz GLK 350.

This is the first premium compact crossover SUV that Mercedes has ever created. Though the GLK 350 might be a bit boxy it does not disappoint at all. The platform for this model was developed on the standard C-class sedan.

Why did Mercedes-Benz choose to construct an SUV? "We needed a car like the GLK 350," sales representative Mark Leonard said. "It's designed to go head-to-head with the BMW X3 and it is doing a fantastic job."

The SUV was shown to the public earlier in the year and is projected to be a 2010 model version. It has already gathered much media attention because of its peculiar design and the starting price that Mercedes-Benz has set for it. Some individuals were expecting to see a high number - but were astonished when the company set it at a low $33,900. This will most definitely be in the running for the inexpensive SUV on the market and might very well overpass the X3 in price alone.

The GLK is outfitted with a 3.5 liter V6 engine and merged with a seven speed automatic transmission. Together the two work in harmony and achieve a smooth but powerful drive. It is simpler then ever to accelerate the car and it has the ability to reach 60 MPH in only 6.9 seconds.

If you want to pick out the premium package you will be given a panorama sunroof, power liftgate, media upgrade packet, heated seats in the front, and memory settings for mirrors, steering wheel, and the driver’s seat. You will also receive some of the more favorite features that include power assist, dual zone automatic climate control, eight CD sound system, and a trip computer. Mercedes-Benz also supplied the standard safety features to every model.
