The price is steep for a locally made car, the engine however is imported which drives the price up. Mercedes-Benz is considering offering smaller and locally made engines in the GLK in the future. Lower price in this segment of the market means higher sales. The GLK will compete against fine cars such as the Audi Q5, BMW X1 and the imported Volvo XC60 which incidentally starts at exactly the same price. I guess Mercedes-Benz will make a handsome profit on each GLK sold…
