Furthering its model name revitalization, Mercedes-Benz replaced the sharp-edged GLK compact SUV with a softer-shaped, more refined GLC. The GLC slots between the entry-level GLA and mid-sized GLE.
With bones coming from the excellent C-Class sedan, the GLC swaddles its occupants in a luxurious leather-lined cabin, quiet solitude, and the solid, substantial and sophisticated driving experience typical of Mercedes that convinces people to part with a considerable chunk of change.
The GLC delivers one of the most comfortable rides of any small SUV. It's also strikingly silent, with just a slight thrum of the four-cylinder turbocharged engine intruding upon the interior, particularly when starting up on cold mornings.
