The GLK and G-Class scoop awards in "Off Road" readers' poll: SUV poll win for Mercedes-Benz
This year the GLK saw off the stiffest international competition to win the SUV category. This was a resounding acknowledgement of last year's revamp of the SUV, entailing comprehensive new technical and design features. The range of engines on offer was additionally bolstered by a particularly agile and economical four-cylinder petrol variant in the spring of 2013. The cutting-edge direct-injection engine in the GLK 250 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY offers superior performance coupled with well-balanced drive comfort at an output of 155 kW (211 hp) and 350 Newton metres of torque. The GLK-Class additionally boasts a new infotainment generation with extended functions.
The legendary G-Class was a success on two fronts, topping the "SUV" category while the G Professional model won the "Classic Cars" section. This makes the G-Class the most successful participant in this poll - which has been held annually since 2001 - with a total of nine awards to its name.This year, a total of 125 vehicles were in the running in 13 categories. In all, the Off Road jury counted 74,282 votes cast.
