Mercedes-Benz GLC 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 GLC300 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Based on the C-Class, the GLC is one of the best compact-luxury SUVs on the market. Plush furnishings inside the quiet cabin prove to be 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 systems--such as blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic warning--come in confusing option packages. A turbo V6 AMG GL43 and a coupelike SUV, the GLC Coupe, are also available.
