Mercedes-Benz GLC Video Review
The Mercedes-Benz GLC is a family SUV that’s comfortable and fun to drive. The beautifully designed interior, along with the easy to use layout and superb quality is taken straight from the C-class. This means the GLC has arguably the poshest feeling cabin in its class.
Several different driving modes can transform how the GLC drives with the push of a button. It can be a comfortable motorway cruiser, fairly capable off-roader, or a car that can drive relatively fast along B roads with minimal body roll. On the road, it behaves like a quiet and composed C-class, and off the road, the GLC has a range of electronic modes to help it overcome muddy fields and steep hills. Engine-wise, the GLC 250d 4MATIC AMG line tested here will pull the car from 0 to 62 in 7.6 seconds, and on to a top speed of 138 miles per hour.
As with any Mercedes, there’s a huge list of optional extras that add luxury and more features. They can also make this small SUV quite an expensive car. Nevertheless, standard equipment is plentiful, with a reversing camera, an electronically opening boot, and automatic climate control. It has plenty of space for passengers with good amounts of shoulder room, and four adults can travel in comfort.
Indeed, the GLC is a very capable family car. With 550 liters of boot space, it’s not only more practical than a C-class, but it has the same amount of luggage space as the X3 and just a little more than the Audi Q5.
