Carlsson unveils new tuning program for 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class

Article by Anita Panait, on December 12, 2013

Carlsson has introduced a tuning program for the elegant Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class (X204) compact sports utility vehicle at the 2013 Essen Motor Show. The tuned GLK features OE quality PU-RIM aerodynamic components as well as a chrome Carlsson radiator grille that surrounds a strong horizontal dividing bar and has the distinctive Carlsson logo at its center.

The new front bumper is complemented by a RS lip spoiler, Carlsson’s trademark three-piece stainless steel mesh grille inserts that make the vehicle look sportier and more elegant.

The chrome-plated inserts for the LED daytime running lights, located at the top of each side air intake, seem like the ‘jewelry’ of this new frontal design. The tuned GLK’s rear valance features a chrome-plated diffuser, complemented by chromed outlets of the quad pipe sports exhaust system. The stainless steel exhaust lowers backpressure, allowing the SUV to churn out a few more horsepower.

Carlsson is also offering a sport suspension kit for the petrol-engined GLK300 and GLK350 models. Uprated springs and dampers lower the ride height by 30mm, thus significantly improving its handling on twisty roads.

For those who just want a lowered look, they could avail of a set of 30mm lower springs. The four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine in the GLK220 CDI is tuned with Carlsson’s C-Tronic module, increasing its power from 170 to 204 hp and torque to around 500 Nm.

Customers could avail of Carlsson’s alloy wheel designs at size options between 18 and 21 inch diameters for the GLK. The tuned GLK also features new 1/5 EVO DS (dark series) in 9.0J x 21-inch size wrapped in 245/35R21 tires.

Other options include 1/10 in three exclusive finishes of Brilliant Edition (BE), Titanium Edition (TE), and Graphite Edition (GE). These wheels come in 8.5J x 20-inch size, fitted with 255/40R20 tyres.

Customization is further extended into the cabin, thanks to available aluminum footrest and pedal set, door-lock pins and floor mats as well as stainless steel doorsill panels with the Carlsson logo that illuminates at night.
