While most auto manufacturers have made the decision to create narrower and sleeker design for their crossover models, Mercedes-Benz has made a bold move to keep their new 2014 GLK250 looking more like an SUV than a crossover version. Some may consider this a little risky, but the new 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 is still able to carry a look all its own; sporting a prominent front grill, perfectly curved headlights and stylish roof line. The best benefit of this design is the additional interior head and legroom it provides. Even taller passengers will not have a problem getting comfortable. If more space is not enough for most people on-the-go, Mercedes-Benz has also added many other great features.
The new Mercedes-Benz GLK250 offers a solid performance whether riding in the city or on the highway. Under the hood, you will find a 2.1-liter twin turbo, four-cylinder engine that provides 200 horsepower with 369 lb./ft. of torque. This 4MATIC crossover with a seven-speed automatic transmission allows you to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 6.5 seconds, which rates good among other crossover models. It also comes with a fuel efficiency of 24 miles per gallon in the city and 33 miles per gallon on the highway.
As much as the new GLK250 looks like an SUV from the outside, it resembles more car-like features in the interior, although it is quite spacious. The seats come with comfortable upholstery, but car buyers can opt to upgrade to all-leather seats, and also includes deluxe wood trim. Both the driver and front passenger seats are heated and fully adjustable with added lumbar support and driver memory capabilities. The cargo space offer a minimum of 23.3 cubic feet of space with a maximum 54.7 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.
Other great features include dual climate control, keyless entry, remote trunk release, cruise control, heated mirrors, and rain sensing windshield wipers. Both the driver and passengers are entertained with surround sound that is MPS and CD compatible. As with all Mercedes-Benz models, the GLK250 includes the Command infotainment system that comes with an LCD touchscreen display that control the climate and entertainment systems of the car.
Mercedes-Benz has also not forgotten about safety features. It has numerous features, such as multiple front seat airbags, an anti-theft system, Xenon automatic headlights, both front and rear fog lights, tire pressure monitoring, brake assist, daytime running lights, electronic stability control and traction control.
While some may complain about the overall design of the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz, its taller figure does command attention and screams power. Most importantly, even though it may be larger than some of the other crossovers on the market, it still provides the comfort and behind-the-wheel feel of a car. The extra-large cargo space is perfect for families on-the-go, those who love outdoor activities, or those who just like a high-performing vehicle that offers plenty of storage space.
