ABS and ESC standard. Side and head protection air bags standard.
A coupelike SUV, the GLC Coupe, is based on the rounded GLC that replaced the GLK. Plush furnishings inside the quiet cabin are very appealing, although it also has Mercedes' complex infotainment system. The 241-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder delivers ample power, and is matched to a nine-speed automatic that shifts smoothly and in a timely manner. We got an overall 22 mpg overall when we tested the GLC. The GLC rides comfortably and handles with athleticism. The seats are very comfortable all around, although the rear seats are a bit snug. Forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert are optional; automatic emergency braking is standard. High-performance AMG models, powered by turbocharged V6 and V8 engines, are also available.
