2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC
Ratings & Reliability
The Mercedes-Benz GLC luxury compact SUV is updated, with a freshened exterior, more powerful engine, latest infotainment system, and added safety features. The 2020 model is distinguished with new headlights, grille, and front bumper design. The base engine is a 255-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder with a nine-speed automatic transmission, boasting a 14-hp increase in output. The SUV features the new infotainment system that is very customizable and vivid but we found it overly distracting. Otherwise the GLC that we tested was quite enjoyable. It had a comfortable ride and handled with athleticism. The tastefully appointed cabin was quiet, with comfortable front seats. A plug-in hybrid, and high-performance AMG models are also available. The related coupelike SUV, the GLC Coupe, received the same updates for 2020. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard.
