The compact SUV market is proving to be highly competitive these days, there are new models entering the market all the time as consumers scale down from the full size SUVs as oil prices increase. These facts mean Mercedes cannot afford to rest on their laurels, the all new GLK was unveiled in full production form at Auto China in April and this followed a long running PR campaign which included two pre-production GLK concepts – the Freeside and Townside.
Much of the latest Mercedes technology is incorporated into the new generation model including 4MATIC all-wheel-drive, Agility Control suspension, Intelligent Light System, PRE-SAFE and 7G-TRONIC transmission.
