There are some cars that tell us in one look that they are average and not the best car that we would want to be seen driving inside of. But there are other cars that exude an air of brilliance and the moment you look at it you know it is the car that you want to be in. One of these cars is the all new Mercedes-Benz GLK 350.

This is the first premium compact crossover SUV that Mercedes has ever produced. When we hear the name Mercedes-Benz we usually think of sports cars and super cars that are built with speed and have a smooth look to them. Though the GLK 350 may be a bit boxy and is an SUV – which means that it is large it does not disappoint. The platform for this model was built on the classic C-class sedan.

So why did Mercedes decide to build an SUV? “We needed a car like the GLK 350,” sales representative Mark Leonard said. “It’s designed to go head-to-head with the BMW X3 and it is doing a fantastic job.”

The model was first debuted earlier in the year and is planned to be a 2010 model version. It has already gathered much attention due to its unusual design and the starting price that Mercedes has set for it. Many people were expecting to see a high number – but were surprised when the company set it at a low $33,900. This will be in the running for most affordable SUV on the market and may very well overpass the X3 in price alone.

The GLK is equipped with a 3.5 liter V6 engine and coupled with a seven speed automatic transmission. Together the two work in harmony and allow for a smooth but powerful drive. It is easier then ever to accelerate the vehicle and it has the ability to reach 60 MPH in only 6.9 seconds.

If you want to choose the premium package you will be getting a panorama sunroof, power liftgate, media upgrade package, heated seats in the front, and memory settings for mirrors, steering wheel, and the driver’s seat. You will also receive many of the most favorite features that include power assist, dual zone automatic climate control, eight CD sound system, and a trip computer. Mercedes also added the standard safety features to each model.
