Mercedes-Benz has given the GLC coupe a bevy of updates for the 2020 model year. The headlights, grille, and bumpers have been revised, and some new color and wheel options are available. Within the cabin, a larger touchscreen has been added, and it governs Mercedes-Benz's new infotainment system. Under the hood, there's a new turbocharged engine that provides 14 more horses than the previous powerplant. Also, the list of available driver-assistance features has been expanded.

Pros
Smooth handling, rakish exterior design, extensive range of standard equipment.

Cons
Less cargo space than competitors, curved roofline diminishes second-row headroom, fuel economy trails that of some rivals.

For 2019, the QX30 merely adds new option packages for the Luxe model. These include the Navigation package with Infiniti's InTouch services that allow users to unlock and lock the doors and schedule maintenance remotely using a smartphone app, and the 19-inch Wheel package that adds—you guessed it—19-inch Gun Metallic wheels rolling on run-flat summer tires. Otherwise, the QX30 lineup carries over unchanged.

Pros
Concept-car styling,
nicely crafted interior,
Sport model truly feels sporty.

Cons
Subpar fuel economy,
cramped cabin,
fully loaded versions are pricey.
