Mercedes GLK

Last Updated:

I guess the K is for Klein. So this is supposed to be a “small GL’.

The big GL isn’t that great looking to start with. And shrinking it doesn’t seem to work that well.
This thing looks like a one way ticket to dorksville.

I don’t get it. even though these are just illustrations, they pretty much match what we’ve seen so far in the spy pictures.
So the real thing will be pretty close.

I am not sure if there is such a big market for something that looks so lame.
Boxy can be fine. I think the Nitro looks good. But this is 1980’s boxy.

Good luck….

  1. i personally think it looks ok. miles ahead of the x3. all mb has to do is put in a bluetec and it should sell pretty well here.

  2. It looks more like a mini Range Rover from the second picture. MB design has become very boring lately, other then the S-class.

  3. I like it, sorry Vince.
    This looks very German and the Jeep Wrangler 4 door
    echos the G wagon design, so boxy is still in meine heir….

  4. Hey Dammit! I live in Dorksville! We don’t want people coming here on a one way ticket! We are trying to keep property values low!

    This GLK is NICE!

  5. It’s nice but not terribly exciting. Hopefully the real thing, complete with all the details that this artist is unaware of, will look better.

  6. Actually, i think it looks less boxy than the nitro, and about the same as the new escape. it does have a nice stance (from these fake pics), and boxy usually means roomy.

  7. The ‘k’ in the MB names (e.g, slk, glk) is for a german word meaning short. i think the work is kurs, kurts, kurtz or something like that.

  8. Vince,

    Why all the hate. This looks much better than the early spy pics and illustrations. If priced right could be a nice succes for MB.

  9. I’ll tell you why all the hate….Mercedes??? Mercedes???? building economy cars, that’s like kia bringing out a new line to complete with Infiniti, can’t do it, won’t sell, who wants a chrysler mercedes anyway????

  10. Sorry Vince, I like it too. I think this looks much better than the X3 which I have hated since the day it came out. I think this will sell well, or at least I hope it does. I like it!

    The the person above, it is kurz or klein.
