The GLC is Mercedes' luxury compact SUV that's based on the C-Class sedan. It competes with the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. The GLC swaddles its occupants in a luxurious leather-lined cabin, quiet solitude, and the solid, substantial and sophisticated driving experience typical of Mercedes. It delivers one of the most comfortable rides of any small SUV.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

For this Rating, we averaged a model’s Overall Reliability for the newest three years, provided the vehicle did not change significantly in that time and hasn’t been redesigned for 2021. We include a prediction for a model that is new or has been redesigned, based on its reliability history or the manufacturer’s track record.
