Two new performance models join the 2018 GLC-Class Coupe lineup: the AMG GLC 63 and AMG GLC 63 S. Mercedes has also renamed most of the GLC's options packages to better convey the features added. Heated wipers are now standard, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can now be added with the Smartphone Integration package.

Excellent balance between agile handling and a comfortable ride
Abundant driver safety aids work great
Four- and six-cylinder engines are fuel-efficient for the class

Hard to brake smoothly
Rear headroom isn't great, especially in the middle
Infotainment controls aren't always easy to use
Less useful cargo area than in regular GLC

Mercedes-AMG peppers performance and spicy styling into its coupe/crossover casserole. The powertrain platter includes a 362-hp twin-turbo V-6 or twin-turbo V-8s pumping out 469 or 503 ponies. All engines pair with a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.

Pros
Porsche 911 quick,
grippy handling,
strong brakes,
V-8 rumble.

Cons
Stiff ride,
noisy tires,
feels big and heavy from behind the wheel.

Doesn’t cut short on technology

Cons
Expensive safety options
It’s not a Coupe, it’s just less useful
