Mercedes-Benz GLK220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and GLK250 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Two new BlueEFFICIENCY models have been added to Mercedes-Benz GLK lineup. The first model -- the GLK 250 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY -- comes with 150 kW (204 hp) and 500 Nm of torque.

Bearing the title of the "world's most powerful four-cylinder diesel engine for an SUV," the 250 CDI BE goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds and hits a top speed of 213 km/h (132 mph).

Fuel consumption comes in at 6.7L/100km (35.1 mpg), while CO2 emissions are 176 g/km. Even more efficient is the second model -- the GLK 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY -- that comes with 125 kW (170 hp) and 400 Nm of torque.

When stripped of all-wheel drive and the 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission (optional), the 220 CDI BE consumes between 6.0L/100km (39.2 mpg) and 6.4L/100km (36.8 mpg).

It boasts a CO2 emissions rating of 158-168 g/km, a 0-100 km/h time of 8.5 seconds, and a top speed of 205 km/h (127 mph).

Mercedes made a statement that implied that both engines could be coming to North America. It said that they have the potential to fulfill the EU6 limits as well as the BIN 5 requirements in the USA.

Styling is basically identical to the GLK 350; however, both BlueEFFICIENCY models have been equipped with weight-optimized alloy wheels and 235/60 R 17 V low-rolling resistance tires. In addition to the engines, Mercedes has announced several new equipment options for the GLK lineup.

Items include KEYLESS GO (passive entry), a rearview camera, an 'Intelligent Light' package with LED daytime running lights, and 'ARTICO' synthetic leather seats.

The biggest addition is an AMG sports package which features new front and rear aprons, 20-inch twin-spoke AMG wheels, and additional chrome detailing.
