In 2015, on July 17, the all-wheel drive crossover "Mercedes GLK 250" was presented to the attention of motorists. This car is the perfect combination of strength, stability, power and convenience. He quickly gained popularity. And all due to its appearance and technical characteristics.
The first thing I would like to note is that the Mercedes GLK 250 became lighter than its predecessor by as much as 80 kilograms. Its curb weight is 1880 kg. The length of the crossover reaches 4525 mm, in width - 1840 mm, and in height - 1698 mm. Mass reduction was achieved due to the use of aluminum and lightweight high-strength steel. Due to this coefficient of aerodynamic drag decreased from 0.34 to 0.31, which affected the dynamics of the crossover.
The exterior features of the model are a sloping roof, large rear windows, large expressive headlights and a truly off-road radiator grille with a company logo in the middle. Despite the absence of chopped, sharp edges, the car looks stately and brutally. You can even say that externally the "Mercedes GLK 250" is a harmonious hybrid of a powerful "Gelendvagen" and an elegant C-class passenger car.
Inside, the Mercedes GLK 250 meets an elegant interior trimmed with high-quality materials - natural leather, wood, aluminum, soft plastic. The interior is thought up as much as possible ergonomically, but thus it looks beautifully, stately and harmoniously.
First of all, a three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel with aluminum inserts comes into view. Then the motorist notices the "smart" dashboard and a wide display located in the middle. The presentable console, which has practically no sharp edges and flat planes, can not help attracting the attention. But on it there is a large screen of a multimedia complex. Effectively look and ventilating deflectors, which were adopted in sports "Mercedes". Slightly below is conveniently located the control panel of the multimedia system and navigation. Separate praise worthy of comfortable adjustable armchairs, equipped with optimal lateral support. And the rear row pleases with a reserve of space. All will fit in comfort.
Under the hood of the crossover "Mercedes GLK 250 4MATIC" is a 4-cylinder in-line engine with a turbocharger, equipped with direct fuel injection. Its volume is equal to two liters, and it produces 211 "horses". Thanks to this unit, the car accelerates to a mark of 100 km / h in less than 8 seconds. The maximum that this crossover can achieve is 210 km / h. The consumption is quite economical - for 100 kilometers of a mixed cycle the engine consumes about 7.7 liters of gasoline.
Behavior on the road
Since the Mercedes-Benz GLK 250 is a crossover, this topic can not be ignored. The 7-speed "automatic" 7G-TRONIC switches gently and smoothly, the suspension is perfectly balanced. In it, all the irregularities are literally drowning - from small pits to hard road junctions. The driver can find out that he encountered an obstacle only when he saw it. And by the way, on this car you can safely experience off-road. All-wheel drive and a 20-centimeter ground clearance contribute to high throughput.
Control becomes as simple as possible due to the presence of an electromechanical control amplifier with a variable ratio. In total, by the way, five modes are individual, sporty, comfortable, eco-friendly and SPORT +. Pleases and an excellent brake system, which is expressed by ventilated disk devices. Naturally, it is equipped with such irreplaceable helpers as ESP, BAS and ABS.
"Mercedes GLK 250 4 MATIC" is loved by many people. And the recognition of car connoisseurs, he won not only due to his characteristics, but also due to rich equipment. In the basic configuration, the car is equipped with a 2-zone climate control, heated seats with adjustable head restraints, an onboard computer, a CD / MP3 player, a 5 inch TFT monitor, and electric heated mirrors. Also in the list of equipment included a comfortable parking system with ten auxiliary sensors.
Another car can be equipped with adaptive cruise control and the same optics, round-trip cameras, dead zone detector, collision avoidance system, the driver fatigue option (ATTENTION ASSIST) and many other useful functions. Some supplement the equipment with the child seat identifier, speed control on the descent, an emergency braking assistant and preventive safety. However, this is also not the entire list of additional equipment available for order. A complete list will take more than one page, so it's better for a potential buyer to get acquainted with it individually.
As for the price, the model in the middle configuration will cost from 3-3.5 million rubles. But the more equipment a person wants to see in his car, the more he will have to pay.
