Mercedes-Benz ushers fresh looks into the SUV market with the arrival of the all-new 2010 GLK350 sport utility vehicle. The newcomer joins Mercedes' palette of premium luxury and performance vehicles adding the GLK-Class to the brand's spectrum of passenger cars and SUVs that range in price from $32,000 to $500,000.
The compact GLK350 enters the segment priced under $34,000 as the entry-level vehicle to compliment the automaker's G-, GL-, M- and R-Class SUV lineup that today commands 30-percent of the brand’s U.S. sales.
"Mercedes GLK is the right product at the right time," said Bernhard Glaser, Mercedes-Benz general manager product management. "Today's consumers are downsizing their vehicles. The GLK350 is the perfect balance of styling, performance and versatility."
According to Glaser, the luxury compact SUV segment is forecast to grow 72-percent from 2007-2009.
