Expert Quotes:

16/23 (rear-wheel drive); 16/21 (4Matic)
U.S. EPA





The 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK is really a compact—not mid-size crossover wagon—yet it has the fuel-economy ratings of a mid-size or larger ute. Whether you get the GLK350 with rear-wheel drive or the 4Matic all-wheel drive system, it's rated at a not-at-all-green 16 mpg city, and highway ratings are either 21 or 23.

Part of the issue, of course, is that the GLK only comes in GLK350 guise, with its comparatively large-displacement V-6. And it's quite heavy. Mercedes-Benz has suggested that it is considering adding a four-cylinder turbo-diesel model to the GLK lineup in a future model year, but no official announcements have yet been made.

Conclusion

The GLK350’s 16-mpg EPA city rating will punt it off the list of anyone who’s thinking about fuel-efficiency and sustainability.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
