Mercedes-Benz | 2015 GLK | 2015 GLK-Class Brochure

GLK - Class
Up for anything.
Mercedes-Benz engineers didn’t put the GLK through snow
and sand, wind gusts and crash tests, mountain trails and
racetracks just to get out of the office. They did it so you
could — with complete confidence, and in stylish comfort.
Because every adventurous soul deserves a soulmate.
GLK 250 BlueTEC. While 33 highway mpg1
places it among the most efficient SUVs on
the road, it’s also one of the most enjoyable.
A torque-rich clean diesel2 twin-turbo four
teams up with 19" wheels, a clever AGILITY
CONTROL® suspension and the all -road,
all-season grip of 4matic® all-wheel drive.

and Sport Packages. Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
GLK 350. With a 302‑hp gasoline V‑6 and
a choice of rear-wheel drive or 4matic allwheel drive, it’s the soul of a sport sedan
wrapped in an SUV body. Standard 19" or
optional 20" wheels make good use of its
multilink suspension. Reaching 60 mph in
6.5 seconds3 makes good use of your time.
When what you desire
is what you deserve.
Everyone enjoys luxury in life. But enjoying life shouldn’t
ever feel like it’s a luxury. That’s why the GLK doesn’t
just wear the Star on its grille, it earns it. It’s thoughtfully
engineered to make you feel protected and playful, smart
and indulgent, spontaneous and prepared — all at once.
Few automobiles, if any, balance passion with precision the
way a Mercedes-Benz can. No other vehicles can trace their
heritage directly to the invention of the automobile itself — or to the first all-wheel drive, the first racing victory, and the
countless safety breakthroughs among the 80,000 patents
in its family album. And while the 2015 GLK‑Class carries
this mantle forward with honor, it does it with a spirit all its
own — wrapping its inherent aptitude in a fun-loving attitude.
In fact, it’s the way the GLK brings opposing forces into
perfect harmony that makes it stand apart from all other
SUVs. Its substantial feel — the result of actual substance
like high-strength steel and standard 19" alloy wheels — is
matched by its refreshing style, with crisp lines that slice
through the wind while maximizing roominess. The richly
finished cabin provides the ideal environment from which
to enjoy its spirited performance — a pairing you can feel
the moment you take the wheel. Its thickly padded 3-spoke
steering wheel is hand-stitched in Nappa leather — an ideal
blend of racy and refined. And while standard ATTENTION
ASSIST ® and 11-way air bag protection have long earned
the GLK acclaim for its safety, it also earns admiration on
looks alone — from its bold grille and chrome trim to its LED
taillamps. The luxury of features in a GLK is quite a rational
reason to consider one. And to consider it a necessity.
GLK 350 shown with Polar White paint, and optional 4matic
all‑wheel drive, KEYLESS‑GO, and Premium and Sport Packages.
Long-distance champ.
And companion.
Some road trips take you cross-country. Some take you
across town, every day, for years. That’s why MercedesBenz engineers the GLK to make every mile memorable
for you, and less impactful for the planet. With the first
clean diesel in its class, it can go farther on a gallon of
fuel1 yet earn the same ultralow-emission rating as the
gasoline-fueled GLK, in every state, from coast to coast.

brushed aluminum running boards, and Lighting, Premium and
Sport Packages. Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
When your past is all about racing ahead.
The GLK’s family tree is abundant with globetrotting
SUVs and record-breaking racecars. Strength, agility
and endurance are deeply etched into its genomes.
To develop its natural athletic abilities into real-world
capabilities, the GLK underwent a regimen few SUVs
have seen. From rigorous testing in brutal climates, to
vigorous laps on the track, the GLK’s cross-training
created a compact SUV that’s rugged yet refined, and
limber where many other SUVs lumber. Its available
4matic ® all-wheel drive is among the lightest, most
fuel-efficient systems of its kind. Its trim dimensions,
nimble handling and tight turning circle deliver sportsedan rewards with an SUV’s commanding view. And
its progressive powertrains accelerate both the pace
of progress and the pulse rate of any driver’s heart.
Mileage master. State-of-the-art clean
diesel technology makes the GLK 250
BlueTEC® one of the most fuel-efficient
luxury SUVs. Two turbochargers — a
fast-acting unit for low rpm and a larger,
more powerful turbo as the revs build,
turn the 2.1‑liter inline - 4 into a torquewielding giant: 369 lb‑ft comes on at just
1,600 rpm. So in addition to its amazing
24/33 mpg (city/highway)1, it can thrust
you from 0 to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds.3
Revel rouser. A gasoline 3.5‑liter V‑6
outputs 302 hp. It can rush the GLK 350
to 60 in a sports-carlike 6.5 seconds,
but still return 25 mpg on the highway.
Its high-pressure Direct Injection and
rapid-multispark ignition can precisely
tune themselves in a single millisecond,
generating more power from every drop
of fuel with fewer emissions left behind.
Fingertip 7‑speed. The sporty, smooth
and efficient automatic transmission
features an elegant electronic selector
and shift paddles — all fingertip-close
with your hands on the steering wheel.
Just a tap of either paddle gives you
instant manual control on demand. Fully
automatic shifting resumes after a few
seconds of paddle inactivity, or you can
tap the shift lever to “D” again anytime.
There’s also a pushbutton Sport setting
that raises the shift points to higher rpm,
ideal for more spirited driving moods.
Year-round confidence. Standard on
the GLK 250 BlueTEC and optional on
the GLK 350, 4matic® all-wheel drive
automatically sends the engine’s torque
to the wheels that have the best grip — whether that’s all four wheels, two of
them, or even just one. It’s lightweight,
flexible and quick to respond, so 4matic
enhances handling in any season, from
winter’s wrath to a dry curve in summer.4
Independent thinking. The versatile
4‑wheel multilink suspension combines
sport-sedan refinement with true SUV
flexibility. Innovative AGILITY CONTROL®
reads the road surface via the vertical
movement of each shock absorber. It
can instantly adjust their firmness for
more precise control in sharp corners,
without compromising the GLK’s silky
ride quality on rough or uneven roads.
Greener red lights. While you’re waiting
for a light to change or for traffic to get
going, an ECO Start/Stop system can
automatically switch off the GLK 350’s
engine, helping save fuel and emissions.
An illuminated “A” symbol tells you when
the engine is paused. The instant you’re
ready to go, the V‑6 automatically fires
back to life as you lift your foot from the
brake, or as you press the accelerator.
Smarter brakes. And breaks.
For more than 60 years, Mercedes-Benz engineers have been paving
the way to a safer future, with innovations that go on to become the
standard for every car on the road. Even stopping has leapt forward,
with fewer skids, shorter panic stops, and brakes that adapt to hills,
rain and natural driver tendencies. A GLK can also take note when
its driver’s actions — and inactions — reflect the onset of drowsiness.
By watching more than 70 parameters, it can alert the driver when
it’s time to take a break. In true Mercedes-Benz fashion, its eyes are
focused sharply on the road ahead. But it’s also looking after you.
GLK 250 BlueTEC shown with Mars Red paint,
and optional KEYLESS‑GO and Lighting Package.
Where safety first is more than a motto.
Being first to introduce a breakthrough in driving safety doesn’t come
from trying to innovate faster. It comes from always looking farther,
wider and deeper into how to reduce the occurrence of accidents and
the severity of their results. There are reasons that many of the GLK’s
safety advancements made their SUV debut in a Mercedes-Benz. It’s
the unparalleled expertise it took to create them. The unique ingenuity
that continues to evolve them. And the unwavering belief that every
safety feature must perform as part of an integrated safety system,
engineered to look ahead yet act in the moment. In the GLK, safety
leadership means helping to protect you and your loved ones not
just by doing all that is possible, but by redefining what is possible.
Learn more about the many safety innovations
in the GLK‑Class at
Eyes to your sides.
No matter how carefully you adjust your mirrors
and check over your shoulders before changing
lanes, you cannot control the actions of other
drivers. When optional Blind Spot Assist detects a
vehicle to either side, it illuminates an icon in the
mirror to alert you. If you signal for a lane change,
the icon flashes and a warning tone sounds. The
system is also available with active technology
that can selectively brake individual wheels, to
help guide you back into your lane automatically.6
Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
Brighter by day, and by night. The Daytime Running Lamps, rear turn signals, brake lamps and taillamps
all feature LED technology. With the Lighting Package, Bi‑Xenon headlamps generate light that more closely
resembles natural daylight. The package includes Active Curve Illumination and Adaptive Highbeam Assist,
both of which continuously vary the beams to maximize illumination without creating glare for other drivers.
Cruise control that stops and goes. DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control uses radar to adapt your
set speed in response to the flow of traffic ahead. It can slow the vehicle automatically — or brake to a stop — then resume with a tap.7 Even if you’re not using cruise control, PRE‑SAFE® Brake can alert you to stopped
traffic, and automatically apply up to 100% braking force to help prevent or reduce the severity of an impact.8
A watchful eye when’s it time for a rest. ATTENTION ASSIST ® is a Mercedes-Benz innovation that can
alert you if it detects signs of drowsiness on long drives. It measures more than 70 variables, starting in
the first minutes of a drive, to establish a pattern. By continually monitoring a variety of driving behaviors
along your trip, it can offer a warning tone and encourage taking a rest if it senses you’re getting drowsy.9
A better view of what’s around you. When backing up, an available rearview camera shows a live view of
the area just behind your GLK on the in‑dash screen. Active steering guidelines help you maneuver more
smoothly. The optional Surround View System composes the views of four cameras into one live “birdseye”
view of your nearby surroundings, to help you negotiate tight spaces at low speeds, in Drive or Reverse.10
Brakes that adapt to you. Adaptive braking technology helps make driving more reassuring and relaxing.
Predictive Brake Priming precharges the brakes if you lift off the accelerator quickly. In the rain, Automatic
Brake Drying periodically sweeps water buildup from the discs. Hill‑Start Assist helps prevent unwanted
rollback on uphill starts. And a HOLD feature lets you keep the brakes applied with your foot off the pedal.8
Multilane multitasker. Optional Lane Keeping Assist uses a camera to monitor the vehicle’s position in
relation to visible lane markings. If you start to drift out of your lane without signaling, it can alert you by
vibrating the steering wheel. It’s also available with advanced active technology that can gently apply the
brakes to individual wheels, to help draw the vehicle back into its original lane if you disregard the alerts.7

upholstery, and optional Black Ash wood
trim, heated front seats, KEYLESS‑GO,
and Multimedia and Premium Packages.
Tailored fit. And finish.
One of the largest single pieces of hand - finished wood trim
ever to grace a Mercedes -Benz spans the winglike dash of the
GLK. But the cabin’s tiniest details will leave an even larger
impression. Examine the cover for the console, and you’ll see
that it’s crafted into an elegant rolltop door from a single piece
of wood, precisely cut by a laser to preserve its intricate grain.
When the world is within reach.
It’ll play the music on your phone without a cable, or from a station on another
continent. It’ll learn how you speak, and respond to your voice. It can dodge a
traffic jam, and find a parking spot. It’ll even parallel-park you in it, hands-free.
Your GLK can make you feel well-connected, even as you get away from it all.
Easy on the eyes, the hands and the mind. The sporty
multifunction steering wheel and console-mounted central
controller unify all your options in entertainment, navigation,
information and personalized vehicle settings. Crisp gauges
and two color screens — a standard 5.8" central display plus
an illustrated multifunction readout inside the speedometer — are ideally aligned at the same height and focal distance.
There’s no need to stretch out to reach a touch screen, nor
to wipe fingerprints from one. Standard Bluetooth lets you
make hands-free calls or stream digital music wirelessly.11
Endlessly entertaining, seamlessly in tune. The standard
audio system lets you tune in HD Radio™ stations, or bring
your own music on CD or via the USB input. A wide array of
options let you expand your playlist to near‑infinity: A Media
Interface links your iPod® or other MP3 device with the car’s
displays and controls.12 Nationwide SiriusXM Radio includes
a 6‑month All Access plan trial, so you can also listen on
your smartphone and tablet.13 The harman/kardon LOGIC7 ®
system immerses you in 450 watts of surround sound. The
Multimedia Package adds a 10GB Music Register for storing
your digital music files on an in‑dash hard drive, an SD card
reader, and Dolby ® Digital 5.1 sound for the harman/kardon
option. Add the Mercedes-Benz Apps Package14 of mbrace®
and you can enjoy global Internet radio stations via TuneIn.®
Explore the country, access the Internet. The Multimedia
Package also brings you the COMAND® system, including
navigation15 with a 7" screen, a fast 80GB hard drive, and
3D maps with building profiles. Map updates are provided at
no charge for three years. Its advanced voice control system
can learn how you speak in your everyday voice. Three years
of SiriusXM Traffic and Weather are also included, and offer
dynamic re‑routing around traffic jams.13 The Cloud‑based
apps of mbrace deliver the Internet to your dash, so you
can easily search destinations from your car, computer or
smartphone, and be on your way with just a few clicks.14
Express departure, impress on arrival. Innovative options
help make your every move smoother. KEYLESS‑GO® lets you
unlock and drive your GLK without taking the key from your
pocket. A power liftgate eases loading and unloading. Active
Parking Assist sizes up open parking spaces as you drive by,
and can expertly back the GLK into a spot hands-free — like
having your own onboard valet. In low-speed maneuvers,
PARKTRONIC helps you avoid nearby obstacles at your front
or rear, via audiovisual indicators in the cabin. And the GLK’s
thoughtful technology even thinks about your technology,
too. You won’t need a special adapter to recharge your
laptop or camera on the road. Just plug it into the available
household-type 115‑volt outlet in the cargo-area sidewall.
Multifunction display. With vivid
color and realistic illustrations, a
high-resolution screen lets you scroll
through a variety of helpful menus
and useful readouts. You can activate
vehicle features, monitor your driving
style, check your tire pressures, and
more. With the optional COMAND®
navigation, you can even see what
lane to be in for an upcoming turn.
Steering-wheel controls. Two sets
of buttons on the multifunction
steering wheel are easy for your
thumbs to reach, and your mind to
grasp. They grant you access to key
features like audio volume or your
phonebook contacts without having
to take your hands from the wheel’s
hand-stitched Nappa leather rim.
Personalized settings. Configuring your
GLK’s convenience features to your liking
is simple. Illustrated menus let you set up
preferences for lighting, locking and more
with just a few taps of your thumb.
Voice control. Included with the
Multimedia Package, the advanced
voice control system lets you say
commands for the navigation and
audio systems in everyday language.
Entering a navigation destination, for
example, is as easy as reading the
address on an envelope out loud.15
How you know it’s right.
The best relationships start at your first encounter. It’s when
you feel tightly bonded, yet easygoing in all of the ways you
communicate. That’s the feeling when you first connect with
your GLK. Your eyes meet. Your hands touch. Everything fits.
And even the sparks of passion seem to make perfect sense.
Where an outgoing personality finds inner peace.
What sets a luxury SUV apart from a luxury sedan is foremost its versatility. What sets a GLK apart from other SUVs
is that it’s foremost a Mercedes-Benz. It’s crafted to a rigid standard, with hand-fitted upholstery and hand-polished
wood. Yet it’s highly flexible, with split rear seats you can fold down with one hand. It’s also quite accommodating of
your indulgent side, with options like a heated steering wheel, a power liftgate, and a power Panorama roof. Thanks to
its space-efficient shape, you can get a lot into a GLK. Because it’s a Mercedes-Benz, you’ll get even more out of it.
First-class luxury, lasting support. Whether you’re driving cross-country or decompressing
from a day at the office, the front seats offer instant comfort and lasting support. The 14‑way
power driver seat offers 4-way power lumbar support, and its 3-position memory recalls your
power steering column and side-mirror settings. The soft, hand-fitted richness of the Leather
Package upgrades the standard 8‑way power front passenger seat to 14 ways, too, and adds
multi-adjustable front head restraints. Heated front seats and a heated steering wheel are
indulgent options you’ll consider necessities the first time you use them on a chilly morning.
Second-row comfort, one-touch folding. Generous room and large windows help rear-cabin
passengers enjoy the GLK’s refined ride. For up to 54.7 cu ft of cargo space, the 60/40‑split
seatbacks fold in one motion — no need to flip cushions or remove head restraints.16 A chrome
load-sill plate, retractable cargo cover and 12‑volt power port are just a few thoughtful details.
Micron filtration, supersized sunroof. The dual-zone automatic climate control caters to
your comfort year-round. It filters dust and pollen as tiny as 0.0002" from the air. A sensor
to monitor the sun’s angle and intensity, along with dual rear-cabin air vents, help maintain
more consistent temperatures. The optional Panorama roof lets all five passengers enjoy the
sun and stars under a vast expanse of heat-rejecting tinted glass. The power front section
tilts up or slides open, and a power internal screen lets you enjoy the shade, too.
Style and substance, inside and out. Sustainably forested wood trim — either standard Burl
Walnut or available Black Ash — is hand-polished to a radiant glow. Sleek aluminum is a sporty
alternative with the standard MB‑Tex upholstery.17 The optional running boards ease your step
with grippy rubber dots, and please your eye with their brushed aluminum finish — a modern
style statement that’s also applied to the roof rails with the Appearance and Sport Packages.

For the GLK 250 BlueTEC, distinctive
19" wheels feature a 5‑spoke design with
polished edges against a contrasting

a high-tech twin 5‑spoke configuration.
The style goes from road to roof on both
models, with the roof rails finished in
sleek brushed aluminum.
One drive of any GLK and it’s clear that
it knows what the “S” in SUV stands for.
The optional Sport Package asserts it even
more emphatically, starting with a set of
AMG® wheels: a 19" 5‑spoke design for the
GLK 250 BlueTEC, and 20" twin 5‑ spoke
wheels for the GLK 350. On both models,
the aggressively chiseled AMG front and
rear bumpers feature brilliant chrome
inserts. And brushed aluminum roof rails
provide the ideal finishing touch.

Preliminary figures based on 2014 estimates. 2015 EPA estimated fuel economy figures unavailable at time of printing. Please see your dealer.
Compare the estimated mpg to the estimated mpg of other vehicles. You may get different mileage depending on how fast you drive, weather
conditions and trip length. Your actual highway mileage will probably be less than the highway estimate.
Requires ultralow-sulfur diesel fuel. Mercedes-Benz approves the use of B5 biodiesel (diesel fuel with maximum 5% biodiesel content) that meets
ASTM D6751 specifications. Please see your fuel retailer and Operator’s Manual for further information. The Mercedes-Benz New Vehicle Limited
Warranty does not cover damage caused by non Mercedes-Benz approved fuel.
Stated rates of acceleration are estimated based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road
surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.
No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt.
Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions.
Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.
Models with Extended Mobility tires are not provided with a spare tire.
Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching
vehicles. It must not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.
DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary
objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at
all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of
the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time
and distance to brake safely.
Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. ATTENTION ASSIST® and/or Lane Keeping Assist may be insufficient to
alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury. Lane Keeping Assist operates at
speeds above approximately 20 mph.
Rearview camera and Surround View System do not audibly notify driver of nearby objects and are not a substitute for actively checking around
the vehicle for any obstacles or people. Images displayed may be limited by camera field of view, weather, lighting conditions and the presence of
dirt, ice or snow on the cameras.
Bluetooth® interface does not provide phone charging or external antenna. Voice interactivity feature is dependent on selected handset. Visit for details. Phone sold separately. See dealer for a list of approved compatible phones.
All iPod® devices are sold separately. Feature not compatible with iPod Shuffle. Apple® adapter may be required for use with 8‑pin “Lightning”
connector. See dealer for details.

While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to
traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system’s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the
vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.
Unsecured cargo can become hazardous in a collision. Always secure cargo using the floor-mounted tie-downs.

The personal rewards of striving to be the best are even more meaningful in the development of young
people than they are for automobiles. Instilling the values of leadership, goal-setting, discipline and
teamwork in youth is an investment in everyone’s future. It’s why Mercedes-Benz USA is collaborating
with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, with an ongoing commitment to train and place hundreds
of coaches for after-school and in-school sports programs in communities around the country. Sports
offer kids more than the chance to be physically active and have fun. It’s also an opportunity to have
a mentor who can guide them, help them learn how to deal with major life issues, and help them grow
stronger not just physically but in their character. As a Mercedes-Benz driver, you become a part of
this effort to give hundreds of thousands of kids a better life today, and all of us a brighter tomorrow.
