    I am not much of a fan of either of them...but the GLK is a much uglier vehicle than the X3

    I'd wait until the new GLA...

    If I had to choose right now, I'd maybe even get a used Q5 Premium Plus/Prestige packages or the Acura RDX for less green.

    id like the Q5 as well only because I'm 6'1" and couldnt fit in the GLK or x3 comfortably. built for wives. Q5 had much more legroom. GLK if you put a gun to my head.

    Of the two choices, I'd get the x3. The GLK is horrid looking. The Q5 is still the car to beat in that category even though they're getting ready to roll out the new model in a few months.

    I also find the GLK to be hideous. X3 looks stupid, too.

    I love the way the X6 looks.

    SG, you should get your wife an X6M :devil:.

    The Audi is a nice vehicle but beware the depreciation! If a new model is coming out double that for the current one. I remember the residual like about 41% on a 36 month lease.

    Come on, the ultimate wifely car in that segment is the Evoque

    The X6 is one of the fugliest cars made in this century.

    The new X3 is much better looking than the first rendition and the glk isn't bad looking in AMG trim.

    X3.

    I put about 1,000 miles on a GLK, and it was OK and got the job done but throttle response was abhorrent and it just felt numb in pretty much every regard.

    First generation or current generation? I get them for service loaners so have driven both. I'd agree with this on the first but the second generation is greatly improved. Actually, this generation GLK is head and shoulders above the first generation.

    I will say that if you live in Toronto, you have to drive a GLK. It appears to be the law up there

    That's a good way of putting it -- reliable engine and transmission, but expect to replace many other $200-600 things somewhere between 80k and 200k miles.

    First Gen. Glad to hear they improved it because I felt like it was almost "there" but not quite.

    There's always the Lexus RX 350. It's not a BMW or Mercedes, but it has had solid reviews forever.
