Mercedes-Benz GLK 250 BlueTec Gets Reviewed by AutoGuide
Powered by a 2.1-liter twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel, the GLK 250 BlueTec starts at $38,590. That's precisely $1110 more than the GLK 350, which has a 3.5-liter gasoline V6 with 306 hp (302 bhp).
Developing 204 hp (200 bhp) and 500 Nm (369 lb ft) of torque, the little oil burner isn't the slouch that four cylinders would lead you to believe.
With 8 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and the fuel economy of a compact econobox, the smallest crossover/SUV in the American lineup of Mercedes-Benz provides the best of both worlds, or even three if you're also counting its increased ground clearance and 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
AutoGuide had a go in the Mercedes-Benz GLK 250 BlueTec and obviously decided to share their impressions in their usual “five-point inspection”.
