Model overview

The Mercedes-Benz GLK is a five-passenger luxury SUV built from 2008 through 2015. It was unveiled in 2008 at the Beijing Auto Show.

The name GLK is a shortcut for Geländewagen Luxus Kompaktklasse, getting its name from the GL-Class, which was identified after the G-Wagen. Therefore, the GL is the luxury model of the G, and GLK is the compact variant of the GL. Now its follower is named the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.

In 2015, when the second generation debuted, the GLK-Class was renamed to Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class as per the new classification adopted by the brand. Under this nomenclature, SUVs employ the base title "GL", accompanied by the model's position in the Mercedes-Benz range. 

The GLK-Class comes available in two trim levels: the gas-powered GLK350 and the diesel-powered GLK250 Bluetec. The GLK350 has by default rear-wheel drive, with 4Matic all-wheel drive as a choice. All-wheel drive is by default on the GLK250 Bluetec. All models are paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission with manual gear selection through steering wheel paddles.
