The GLK-Class first made its debut in 2008. It then remained on the market until Mercedes retired the model with the release of its successor in 2015.

The release of its successor, the GLC-Class, was done to realign the SUV family. At this point, the GLK was replaced by the GLC. The name change was made to highlight that it is the equivalent SUV model to the C-Class series.

This meant that the GLK is essentially larger than the GLA and GLB versions that were released a few years later.

During its time on the market, there was only a single generation, but it did receive a significant facelift in 2012.

Rivals obviously come from luxury compact SUVs offerings from Mercedes’ main competition - the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. Other contenders include the likes of the Volvo XC40 and Porsche Macan.

Mercedes released two diesel and two petrol engines for the model. These are what the model’s trim levels are based on. Petrol offerings included a 3.0 L V6 and a 3.5 L V6, while the diesel offerings included a 2.1 L inline-4 and a 3.0 L V6.

Those were mated with either a 6-speed manual for the lower trim levels and an 8-speed automatic for the larger engines.

Trim levels, like most Mercedes, were based on the engine selection. These included the 200, 300 4MATIC, and 350 4MATIC for petrol. Diesel versions ranged from the 200 to the 350 CDI 4MATIC.

Interestingly, there was never a high-performance AMG version released until well into the lifecycle of the GLC-Class.
