The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 is a fine luxury crossover that delivers fantastic fuel economy, a well-put-together cabin and delightful exterior design. Its 2.1-litre turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engine isn’t the best, but it’s still powerful enough to provide a good performance. Those who are looking for a decent alternative to a Traverse or Acadia should definitely give this one a look.



The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 isn’t the kind of that deserves even the slightest form of dismissal. It may not be the loftiest vehicle in the GLK family, but it doesn’t need to be – because the GLK class is already a lofty family. With its sleek exterior design, fantastic performance and high-rate feature, this luxury crossover is a fine competitor to all the Acadias and Traverses out there.

The GLK250 stands tall above its peers by featuring a more rugged and rigid stance, which involves angular wheel arches, a thick grille and bold lines. Most crossovers these days are very curvaceous, so this look is actually somewhat unique. Last year, Mercedes updated the GLK’s headlights, taillights and fascia to make them even edgier. And thanks to thin and sloped structural pillars, the outward visibility is superb. Some of the special features include LED daytime running lights, aluminum roof rails and 20-inch twin-five-spoke wheel, which replace the 19-inch wheels.

The luxury component truly comes together once you step inside – which by the way is as easy as stepping into a sedan, despite this crossover’s tall appearance. You’ll find plenty of high-quality soft-touch materials, which remind you right away that you’re inside a Mercedes-Benz and not some other crossover. Thanks to a slight revamp in 2013, the 2014 GLK350 features a much better designed instrument panel as well as full-width wood trim. However, the ever complex blend of steering wheel controls, dashboard buttons and the COMMAND multimedia interface is still a bit tough to get used to, but once you do, you’ll feel very satisfied. In other words, the learning curve will daunting, but it’s not the end of the world.

What might be a bit disappointing is the skimpy cargo area, which is only 54.7 cubic feet. Mercedes makes up for this with fine front seats that feature eight-way adjustability and good bolstering. That said they are not as comfortable as those in an Audi Q5 or Lexus RX, but that’s okay. The second-row seats are not bad either, but they don’t measure up to the front ones, so if you are an adult, you might want to avoid them. Unfortunately, there are no third-row seats since this car is only a five-seater, so don’t expect that.

The one area where the GLK250 doesn’t quite deliver is under its hood. This doesn’t mean that the engine is bad. It just doesn’t meet Mercedes’ lofty standards – particularly those set by the GLK250’s higher-priced cousin, the GLK350. The low-priced variant offers a 2.1-litre turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engine, which produces 190 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It takes this powertrain just a little over eight seconds to accelerate to 100 km/h, which is not bad, given the car’s excellent fuel efficiency. In fact, it’s one of the most efficient crossovers on the market.

Overall, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 is a fantastic vehicle that offers plenty of power, fuel efficiency and just about everything else a good car should. So. if you’re in the market for a crossover, then definitely give this one a try.

Power and Performance:

The GLK250 Bluetec gets a turbocharged 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel engine good for 200 hp and a V8-like 369 lb-ft of torque. At our test track, the GLK250 had a 0-60 time of 8.2 seconds, which isn't exactly slow but is certainly off the rapid pace set by this segment's jocks. On the upside, the GLK250 Bluetec is one of the most fuel-efficient luxury crossovers out there, with EPA ratings of 28 mpg combined (24 city/33 highway). These figures surpass Audi's more costly Q5 hybrid and aren't much lower than the Lexus RX 450h hybrid.

Properly equipped, any GLK can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Interiors and Special Features:

Despite its entry-level price point (for the brand), the GLK's superb interior fit and finish and high-quality soft-touch materials uphold Mercedes-Benz's reputation for fine craftsmanship. A mild refresh last year brought a cleaner instrument panel and full-width wood trim, a welcome upgrade. The 5-passenger GLK features a 60/40-split rear seat and a useful 54.7 cubic feet of cargo space. While the front seats are not quite as comfortable as those in a Lexus RX or Audi Q5, they do feature 8-way adjustability and ample bolstering. Controlling the GLK's abundance of high-tech features is Mercedes-Benz's intuitive COMAND multimedia interface.

Safety features:

Last year, a slew of new safety features found their way to the GLK, and the 2014 GLK earns good crash-test scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

That body gave the luxury crossover its top score of "good" in all relevant tests, although it has not tested the GLK in the new and tougher small-overlap front crash test. Unlike last year, the GLK is no longer an IIHS Top Safety Pick. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), on the other hand, hasn't tested the smallest Benz utility vehicle at all.

New safety features added last year included Attention Assist, which uses cameras to measure drowsy driving--and to suggest a coffee stop when needed. MBrace2 seeks to avoid distracted driving by offlining smartphone activity to the ute's audio and Bluetooth controls, while active park assist uses the GLK's electric power steering and parking sensors to accurately place the vehicle in a parallel parking spot--with the driver manning the accelerator and brake.

Lane-keeping assist is now available: it nudges the GLK back into the proper lane when it detects a swerve over the lines. And finally, blind-spot monitors and adaptive cruise control are now offered on the GLK as options. All the customary safety features are included in the GLK, too: There are dual front, side and curtain airbags as well as anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control. Active front head restraints are standard, too, and the GLK has emergency systems that will automatically contact emergency dispatch if you're in a severe crash.

Thanks to the relatively high seating position and low shoulder line, the Mercedes-Benz GLK has impressive outward visibility—better than most other luxury crossovers.
