Mercedes GLK 350 4MATIC Schwarz Edition

Mercedes is an omnipresent company with general tendencies towards perfection. Although headquartered in Germany it has dealerships and services all over the world. And obviously it needs to be so, because there are plenty of Mercedes vehicles owners on each continent. The German brand always draws its clients’ attention with new things and now it is the Japanese’ turn to benefit of a new Mercedes GLK 350 4MATIC Schwarz Edition.

The Mercedes GLK 350 4MATIC Schwarz Edition, as the name suggests, is all covered in black paint, to be more precise, Obsidian Black. The car rides on a set of 20 inch alloy wheels and it also got stainless steel running boards, an upgraded sport suspension and an AMG styling package. The inside of the vehicle has suffered little modifications. They are some Artico seats, a sport steering wheel, black ash wood trim and alloy pedals. Technology is not missing from the car. It has active park assist, active lane keeping assist and active blind spot assist.

The Mercedes GLK 350 4MATIC Schwarz Edition is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 306 HP (225 kW) and 370 Nm (272 lb-ft) of torque. It works mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.  The Mercedes-Benz GLK Class is the SUV model which, condensed in a compact body of strong individual design, allows the driver to have an excellent travel on any ground. The Schwarz is a limited edition. One hundred units will be manufactured with a starting point of ¥6,840,000 ($69,540 / €52,325).
