Based on the current C-Class, the GLC is one of the best compact luxury SUVs on the market. Plush furnishings inside the quiet cabin prove appealing, although it also has Mercedes' complex infotainment system. The front seats are very comfortable and supportive, but the rear is a bit snug. The 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder delivers ample power and is matched to a nine-speed automatic that works well. The GLC rides comfortably and handles with athleticism. Automatic braking is standard, but other safety gear--such as blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert--comes in confusing option packages. A turbo V6 AMG GL43 and a coupelike SUV, the GLC Coupe, are also available. First-year reliability has been well above average.
