With its smooth ride, peppy 3.5 liter, 268-horsepower V6, and a low base price, the GLK is welcomed bargain in the Mercedes family.

    the X3 is so ugly looking and the q5 i notice the leather seats after about 10,000 miles are just completely bagged looking, and not to mention the new q5′s are built in mexico now which is just a no for me. GLK for me, i’m purchasing one this winter as a 2013 certified used.

    For those looking for fuel economy get the diesel later this year.

    nope see you are comparing the wrong models. The Q5 has a 2.0T that gets higher MPG and the X3 has a new engine that gets better MPG as well. The Merc is above and beyond the worst. Its not too much to ask for decent MPG for that much money.

    GLKs competitors barely get any better real world MPG. C & D did a road test and they got: 20mpg combined for the GLK, 21mpg for the V6 Q5, and 22mpg combined for the X3 3.0si. Motorweek got 20mpg for the GLK as well. You can look those up on the web. Anyhow, if you’re seeking fuel economy, affordability and great handling, why look into the premium SUV market to begin with? End of debate for me.

    No, see it has about the same offroad ability as its German competitors (Audi and BMW) and the Evoque has better offroad capabilities. And all those cars get MUCH better MPG. and the Merc is not better than any of the competition yet so being much more expensive cannot be forgiven by the fact that “It’s a Benz”.

    Well the GLK is a 4100+lb suv with 3.5L V6 & awd, and it’s designed to go at least a little bit off road. So you can’t expect camry fuel economy and lotus handling with that package. Gotta be realistic here. That’s why I don’t agree with many mainstream car medias; it’s always a comparison for them, they never see any car for what it is. And it’s a Benz, so of course it isn’t going to be cheap!

    or perhaps you just cannot accept the car’s shortcomings. I mean there is also the fact that it is more expensive than the competition because there is no base engine and the MPG is terrible.

    No I know, I was just marveling at how butt hurt Mercedes fans get over the criticism he gave. I think it looks great, but MPG and handling are both atrocious.
