Santa Barbara Auto Group is excited about the intriguing line-up of new Mercedes-Benz vehicles expected this year.  Among them is the 2013 GLK250 BlueTEC®, featuring an all-new clean diesel engine and the most fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz SUV yet!  Whether you commute, travel, or simply are looking to save on fuel prices here in California, the 2013 GLK250 BlueTEC® delivers premium efficiency in combination with its already responsive driver performance.

A Powerful Clean Diesel Engine

Mercedes-Benz GLK drivers already enjoy and appreciate the spunky power of this elite SUV, and now they have even more to rave about.  The all-new 2.1 liter twin-turbocharged 4 cylinder BlueTEC® clean diesel engine delivers dynamite power thanks to 200 horsepower and 369lb-ft of torque.  Best of all, the incredible performance is coupled with remarkable fuel economy.  The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTEC® is estimated to achieve up to 24mpg in the city and 33mpg on the highway.

As the original manufacturer of the first diesel engine, Mercedes-Benz is not new to clean diesel technology, but this is the first time it is being applied to the GLK-Class.  As the latest in the BlueTEC® line-up from Mercedes-Benz, the 2013 GLK250 runs smoother, quieter, and more powerfully than ever before.

The clean diesel engine of the 2013 GLK250 is paired with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive technology and an enhanced 7-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles.  It also features advanced AGILITY CONTROL® suspension for a smoother driving experience.

Enhanced Driver Technologies

Additional driving technology features include ATTENTION ASSIST® driver-drowsiness monitor which alerts drivers if they are exhibiting signs of  drowsiness, an available Driver Assistance Package featuring DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control with PRE-SAFE® Brake, Active Blind Spot Assist, and Active Lane Keeping Assist.

Exterior features of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTEC® include LED Daytime Running Lamps and new standard LED tail lamps.  An available Appearance Package and AMG Styling Package provide even more options for custom luxury features.

Sure-footed, responsive and up for anything you have planned, the remarkably versatile GLK-Class is now a true efficiency expert.  To learn more about this distinctive new vehicle, visit, call, or email Santa Barbara Auto Gruop.
