Other Things You Should Know About GLK 350
Built on the C-Class platform, the GLK 350 features a suave 3.5-liter V6 engine that offers quick acceleration and 18 mpg total on premium fuel. Ride security is solid and serene when cruising, but the low-speed drive is a bit unsettled.
The GLK handles nimbly but does not shine at its limits. The high, vertical seating position offers a commanding view out through the large windows. The front seats are stable and very well-shaped. There is no much legroom space in the rear and the wide doorsills further obstruct access.
The controls in the GLK 350 models are better than in many other Mercedes-Benz models, but some still are not positioned exactly logical. A slight tweak in the interior design of the 2013 model considerably improved the car, with a new V6 engine that improved fuel economy to 21 mpg overall and more deluxe interior materials.
