Benz's baby SUV gets a slew of stying and performance upgrades.
Introduced at this year's Essen Motor Show, this is Carlsson's maiden aftermarket package for the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. A PU-RIM aerodynamic body kit, including a new front bumper, RS lip spoiler and chrome-plated diffuser is the first treatment the German tuner has given the compact SUV, followed by some new jewelry in the shape of a chrome surround radiator grille, three-piece stainless-steel mesh grille inserts, chrome-plate inserts for the LED DRLs, and a stainless-steel quad exhaust with chromed pipes.
Uprated springs and dampers sees the GLK lowered by 30 mm, and that new stance is further enhanced with a set of 21-inch 1/5 EVO DS alloys. Carlsson also offers buyers a choice of 20-inch 1/10 alloys finished in Brilliant Edition, Titanium Edition and Graphite Edition. Carlsson's C-Tronic module boosts the turbo-diesel four-pot in the GLK220 CDI from 170 hp and 295 lb-ft to 204 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque, while the cabin can be adorned with aluminum pedals and footrest, and stainless-steel door sill panels with an illuminated Carlsson logo.
