Benefits of Driving a 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Sport Utility Crossover

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class borrows the appearance of the automaker's larger sport-utility vehicles but is actually a very manageable size for city-dwellers. The GLK-Class has a powerful 302-horsepower V6, car-like independent suspension and upright 8-way power-adjustable seating, featuring a decidedly car-like experience. 23 cubic-feet of cargo space in back means the GLK-Class is practical as well. Fold the rear seat down and that space more than doubles, to 54 cubic feet. Available 4MATIC 4-wheel drive provides all-weather sure-footedness. Starting price on the GLK-Class is under $38,000.

What's new for 2013?

For 2013, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class sees a few changes. For starters, the small SUV receives an updated headlight treatment, now with LED running lights. The taillights are now LED-based and the 19-inch alloy wheels have been redesigned. Under the hood, the 3.5L V6 has been updated, with direct-injected output now rated at 302 hp and 273 ft-lb of torque, up from the previous 268 hp and 258 ft-lb. Steering is now electromechanically assisted rather than hydraulically assisted. Inside, the shifter has moved from the console to the steering column, the air vents have been restyled, and burled wood now spans the dashboard. New exterior paint, upholstery and leather colors complete the 2013 updates.
