Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
A pair of gutsy engines,
high-end interior design,
surprisingly athletic chassis.

Cons
Snug rear seats,
a few questionable ergonomic choices,
paltry towing capacity.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Powerful and response V6 engine
Interior materials rival those in top-tier competitors
Costs thousands less than other luxury SUVs
Lots of cargo room

Cons
Infotainment system can be difficult to use
Firm front seats
Small door openings and tight rear seat
Models with large wheels produce a noticeably bumpy ride

For 2021, Mercedes gifts the GLC lineup with more standard features and more standalone options. A passive hands-free entry as well as a self-parking function and rear cross-traffic alert are now included on every model. Automatic high-beam assist and a 360-degree camera system are now available separately on a GLC300 without being bundled as part of a package.

Pros
Quiet and refined,
gorgeous and spacious interior,
more space inside than a C-Class.

Cons
Lacks driving verve,
limited cargo space,
most driver assists aren't standard should you want them.
