"Its interior styling is more luxurious than the previous-generation model, with one of the nicest improvements being the massive piece of burled wood covering the dash from edge to edge."
"Most of the judges liked the styling changes, and everyone agreed the GLK is an exceptionally fun vehicle to drive. It’s quick, nimble, and confidence-inspiring, with exceptional braking."
"For our 2013 Sport/Utility of the Year competition, the overwhelming majority of the competitors were car-based. There was one that wasn’t though, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, a vehicle that in the words of technical director Frank Markus, “did more of what we expect an SUV to do.”"
Good luck to both competitors! The results will be available on October 15th.
