The new Mercedes-Benz GLK has been totally redesigned for the 2013 model year – giving it a more dynamic look the compete with the new BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.

“In the GLK, we have a dynamic lifestyle SUV offering a winning combination of intelligent technology and character in abundance,” says Dr. Joachim Schmidt, Head of Sales and Marketing for Mercedes-Benz Cars. “It will further bolster our SUV portfolio, making a vital contribution to Mercedes-Benz’s global growth in this market segment.”
