2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK — Flash Drive

View Pictures:  2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK

I wasn't a big fan of the GLK when I first saw the pictures, but I have to say it looks much better in person. Carrying over styling from the tough G-Class, the GLK has the appearance of a large vehicle until you get close to it and realize it is actually quite small — at least on the outside. Use of available space inside is good, with plenty of room for cargo and enough room for three passengers in the back seat. Folded seats provide a continuous flat surface for easy loading of big cargo. With more than adequate power available and surprising agility, the GLK is actually quite fun to drive, handling corners more like a sport wagon than an SUV. Unfortunately, that power comes at the cost of fuel economy, which stayed in the low teens. And while the GLK has a base price around $35K, adding leather, navigation, nice wheels and other luxury amenities easily drives the price towards $50,000 — a lot of money for a small crossover, even if it does have a big three-pointed star in the grille. – Perry Stern

I think the Mercedes-Benz GLK looks great, but underneath it's just a typical mini-sport ute. It's a little less spacious than I'd like, but it does have a quality feel to each interior surface. The GLK has a smooth ride, but isn't very "sporty." – Paul Hagger

The new GLK is Mercedes-Benz's latest entry into the subcompact SUV market. Coupled with angular sheet metal, 20-inch rims and a bold grille, the GLK appears to be the baby brother of the G-Class Gelandewagon. The GLK is a pleasure to drive, thanks to the venerable V6 engine, which is smooth and strong off the line. It delivered 21 mpg in mixed driving due to the efficiency of the 7-speed automatic transmission. The interior is super attractive when equipped with the optional aluminum accents or the burled walnut trim. However, Mercedes-Benz provides so many desirable options that the GLK can easily top $50K on a loaded model. There is decent room inside the GLK for four passengers, and the trunk will fit enough gear for a long weekend outing. The only thing missing from the GLK is the availability of the BlueTec diesel powerplant, which would provide great torque and a strong increase in fuel efficiency. – Joe Chulick
