A bit obvious, Brabus chose a fully-loaded GLK to almost transform into an all-out all-wheel drive supercar. One of the most impressive gadgets on our test car was probably the three-zone Thermotronic automatic climate control system. Besides being just a regular automatic AC unit that splits into three separately-controlled zones, the Thermotronic actually uses its own sensors and ECU to keep the interior temperature steady no matter the outside weather conditions.
Another highly mentionable thingamajib is of course the Intelligent Lighting System with bi-xenon, which not only lights around corners, but it also automatically reduces or increases the headlight beam depending on the weather and driving conditions as to not blind the oncoming drivers. Pretty neat option, if you ask us.
We were also greeted by a number of other gizmos, from which quite a lot stood out. There was, for example, a Comand APS multimedia system with Mercedes-Benz's version of BMW's iDrive or Audi's MMI, two heated and electrically adjustable front seats with memory package, an electrically adjustable steering wheel and light and rain sensors.
On top of that, we also had a very useful parking package, which includes both front and rear parking sensors and a camera for reverse. The panoramic sliding glass-sunroof can also make you feel like in a convertible, or at least a Targa model, while the Harman Kardon LOGIC 7 surround sound system is most likely to be absolutely loved by audiophiles. On the whole, as you can probably tell, there weren't that many gadgets missing from our test car.Continue reading
