I've seen recent road tests on the 2013 GLK350 with 0-60 times of 5.8 secs for 4Matic and 5.7 secs for RWD, so maybe not such a big difference. I think I'd be driving the X1 more aggressively since it's a much more sporty vehicle.
The GLK is more of a luxury ride compared to the X1 and X3 but it still has what I consider to be a German suspension feel. I find the GLK and X3 to have much more refined suspensions than the X1.
