The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class may be one of the cheaper models the German company produces, but you wouldn’t suspect that by the way this small crossover looks, feels and drives. Close one of the doors or drive over a set of railroad tracks and feel the sense of over-engineered solidity that permeates every inch of this compact luxury SUV. Indeed, it’s this innate Benz quality that sets the GLK apart from the other crossovers in its class.
However, there are now more competitors in this class than ever before. Most match the GLK in terms of available equipment and performance, yet also offer a roomier backseat and cargo area. As such, the GLK probably isn’t the most family-friendly choice. Even so, that unmistakable Mercedes-Benz engineering and craftsmanship makes the GLK-Class worth a look.
