The GLK also comes equipped with innovative technologies. For the first time featured here for instance is the electric steering with STEER CONTROL, which supports the driver in unstable driving conditions by triggering an impulse which can be felt on the steering wheel, prompting countersteering by the driver in the correct direction.

In other words, if you don't need so much interior and luggage space, the GLK 250 is a perfect opportunity for an awesome ride.
