7 November 2008 | The new GLK is the latest addition to the SUV lineup of Mercedes-Benz. Cobra Technology & Lifestyle now adds its own exclusive accessories to the new model. The Cobra Technology & Lifestyle designers and engineers have developed two different options for giving the GLK a new front.
 

The energy-absorbing front guard with a tube diameter of 60 millimetres provides classic off-road looks. The front guard meets the EU guidelines for pedestrian protection. After passing the required crash tests the Cobra Technology & Lifestyle front guard was awarded an EU type certificate that allows installation of the guard on the Mercedes GLK without individual technical inspections and without any amendments to the vehicle registration documents.

The second option for upgrading the front of the new Mercedes is the Cobra Cityguard front element. It is also made from stainless-steel and mounts to the underside of the production bumper. Cobra Technology & Lifestyle stainless-steel rocker panel guards have a tube diameter of 80 millimetres and feature an integrated step to make getting in and out of the car easier. Alternatively Cobra Technology & Lifestyle offers surrounds for the running boards available from the factory. The surrounds are made from stainless-steel with a tube diameter of 42 millimetres.

The rear of the GLK is altered visually with the Cobra Technology & Lifestyle rear guards. These stainless-steel components with a tube diameter of 60 millimetres protect the production bumper against damage from minor impacts. Customers can opt to protect only the left and right quarter bumper or combine these elements with a central rear guard that mounts between the tailpipes of the production exhaust.

Cobra Technology & Lifestyle Sahara wheels in size 8.5Jx20 front and back are the complement to the accessories package. The one-piece light-alloy wheels feature eight double spokes and a lockable hub cap for added theft protection. All Cobra Technology & Lifestyle components are backed by 24-month warranty with unlimited kilometers.
