Minor changes to standard feature availability, V8 models dropped for 2022.

The GLC63 S model joins the lineup for 2022. The GLC63 S brings the 503-hp version of the twin-turbo V-8, previously reserved only for the GLC Coupe, to the more practical squareback body style this year. However, Mercedes-AMG has also told Car and Driver that certain 2022 models normally offered with V-8 engines will not be available. The GLC63 and GLC63 S models may be impacted by this change to the lineup, but representatives from Mercedes-AMG would not comment or confirm that information by press time.

Pros
A trio of high-performance engine options,
agile handling,
deluxe cabin.

Cons
Some rivals offer more cargo space,
pronounced road noise when cruising,
rough ride over imperfect pavement.
