Mercedes-Benz has been a tech pioneer for quite some time in the automotive industry, combining cutting-edge features with an impeccable luxury finish. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that, with the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK, the German automaker will likely retain its well-deserved reputation.
The Mercedes-Benz GLK350 comes standard with an array of luxury features that won't surprise anyone, given the logo riding prominently on the grille. What might surprise some is the Mercedes-Benz GLK350's sticker price, which Cars.com says is "one of the lower base prices in this segment, but the total rises quickly when you add some options." Options aren't always necessary, however, as the base 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK boasts more than enough amenities to satisfy many consumers. Motor Trend predicts that "multimediaphiles will revel in the sound system's ability to connect to and control both an iPod AND a USB stick at the same time," while MyRide.com points out that, "as expected in any Mercedes, luxury abounds." MyRide.com elaborates by noting that "eight-way power front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, [a] huge sunroof, leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel and 8-speaker sound system" are also included in the base price for the 2010 Mercedes GLK.
Sometimes, what comes standard just isn't enough, despite the obvious appeal of many of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK's features. For those who desire a bit more, Car and Driver reports that there are "lots of sybaritic options" available on the 2010 Mercedes GLK, although they warn that this SUV gets "pricey when outfitted with all the gizmos." First up is the upholstery; while Cars.com says that the "seats are finished in standard MB-Tex simulated leather," customers have the option of upgrading to the "$1,750 Full Leather Seating Package," which, as you might expect, brings "real leather upholstery" to the 2010 Mercedes GLK's interior. Other packages include the Premium Package, which adds a power liftgate, Sirius Satellite Radio, and rain-sensing wipers, among other features, while the "Multimedia Package goes for $3,350 and includes the Comand multifunction controller, navigation, a six-disc Harman/Kardon entertainment system and a backup camera," according to Cars.com. Mercedes-Benz has been much maligned over the first iterations of the Comand system, but Car and Driver contends that the latest version "works pretty well considering how much it can do" and features a "scroll device located rather low and to the left side of the shift lever." Rounding out the options list, according to Cars.com, are a Lighting Package ($970) that "features swiveling bi-xenon headlights with washers and LED taillights," while a "dual-screen rear entertainment system" is also available.
