Previously, the only petrol engine available for the Mercedes GLK class SUV is a 3.5-litre V6. But starting from June this year, the European market will be offered with the GLK 250 4MATIC, which is equipped with the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder borrowed from the A250. It produces 208bhp with 350Nm of torque.

The engine is mated to a seven-speed 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission that sends the power to all four wheels. The engine is fitted with a start/stop function as standard.

Although the engine capacity has been slashed by as much as 50 percent, the compact luxury SUV is no slouch. According to Mercedes, the GLK 250 sprints from 0 to 100km/h in a swift 7.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 215km/h. It returns an NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) combined fuel efficiency of 7.5-7.7L/100km with CO2 emission of up to 180g/km.

If you like the GLK's latest proposition and that masculine looks, you might be disappointed to know that the SUV is currently not in Cycle & Carriage’s price list.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

It would be wasted if not used on off road.
