The Mercedes GLK went on sale in 2009 and after a few years on the market, it was just about due for a facelift. The final production model of the revised edition was caught testing various times, but Mercedes finally unveiled the new GLK ahead of its official debut at the 2012 New Your Auto Show. Sales will begin later in the Summer 2012, with the GLK350 being the first one to be offered on the market. A GLK250 BlueTEC model will arrive in early 2013.

The new 2013 GLK received a few exterior changes that make it look even more aggressive and dynamic, along with the use of better quality materials, new equipment, a fully redesigned trim, and a new infotainment systems. Mercedes is offering nearly 1,000 new parts in total, parts that help the GLK offer outstanding driving dynamics, excellent safety, and superlative ride comfort.
