Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

Pros
Balance of comfort and performance makes it an appealing daily driver
Elegant design gives it a true luxury appearance
Roomy seating for a small luxury SUV
Solid fuel economy from the standard four-cylinder engine

Cons
Less cargo space and towing capacity than competition

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.

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class's #1 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Compact SUVs category. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class has a score of 8.4 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 43 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Refined cabin quality
Strong twin-turbocharged engine options
Composed handling
High-tech infotainment system

Cons
High base price for the class
Cramped rear headroom and unimpressive cargo space in coupe body style

For 2020, the MDX carries over without any changes to its appearance, mechanical components, or available features. The lineup continues to offer a gasoline and gas-electric hybrid model as well as a second-row bench that allows up to seven passengers or captain's chairs that seat up to six. However, Acura did increase the base price of the regular MDX and the Sport Hybrid by $100.

Pros
Entertaining to drive—for a three-row crossover, quick and smooth hybrid powertrain, standard driver assists.

Cons
Unremarkable passenger space, quirky touchscreen setup, options inflate the price.

By:

The 2020 Acura MDX is a stately three-row family crossover that has aged well.

PROS
Handsome looks
Confident power
Spread-out space
Good efficiency from hybrid
Standard active safety features

CONS
Pricey options packages
Top trims don’t feel quite as luxurious as we’d expect
Third row can be cramped for tall adults
Shallow cargo area

By:

Cons

Handoff between all-electric and engine power is clunky
