2012 New Cars

2012 New Cars, 2012 New York auto show: 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK shows off a new face and features, Mercedes-Benz will display a freshened look, new interior features, and claimed better fuel economy for the GLK compact SUV at the New York auto show in April.
We’ve learned that the exterior has been changed to reflect the design of the latest Mercedes-Benz sedans, including a new-look grille, rear bumper, and taillights. Also debuting are new headlamps with LED daytime running lights.
The GLK’s 3.5-liter V6 engine has been updated to improve performance and fuel economy, with direct fuel injection and multi-spark ignition, as well as a new stop/start system. Mercedes claims 0-60 mph acceleration in 6.5 seconds.
Better fuel economy is always welcome, especially with the GLK achieving only 18 mpg in our previous test.
Inside, the interior has been revised with standard leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift paddles, a 4.5-inch color display in the instrument cluster, and a new shifter on the steering column for the seven-speed automatic transmission.
An infotainment system is also standard with Bluetooth and MP3 capability. A rear-view camera, XM radio, and enhanced voice control are optional, which seems baffling for a premium-branded product. Some of these features are increasingly common on models at half the GLK’s expected price.
