Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class captivates crossover types with its lush cabin and its plush ride; there’s AMG power on tap if you must.

Pros
Cabinet-grade interior (agency or furniture)
Choose your body
Choose your engine
Burmester audio thrills
Doesn’t cut short on technology

Cons
Expensive safety options
It’s not a Coupe, it’s just less useful
Numb steering (GLC 300)
Rivals have diesel, plug-ins

Two new models join the GLC-Class lineup: the GLC 350e plug-in hybrid and the performance-oriented AMG GLC 63. Heated wipers are now standard, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can now be added with the Smartphone Integration package. Mercedes has also renamed some packages to better convey the features added.

PROS
Balance of comfort and performance makes it an appealing daily driver
Elegant design inside and out gives it a true luxury appearance
Plenty of room for adult-size passengers in back
Solid fuel economy from the standard four-cylinder engine

CONS
Feature for feature, it is pricier than many competitors
Technology interface isn't always easy to use

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class ranked #3 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding interior
Plenty of standard tech features
Quiet, smooth ride

Cons

Below-average cargo space in coupe models

The 2018 Ford Edge has an eager feel and crisp design; safety scores and Sport ride quality give pause.The Edge satisfies more than a few needs. It’s sleeker than the truck-infused Expedition, even the Explorer. It’s more spacious than the Escape. It’s also devoid of any off-road pretense, any faux-SUV ruggedness.

Pros
Quick steering
Cabin’s muted details
Wide range of engines
Composed ride on small-tire models
Edge Sport lives up to name

Cons
Seats are a big letdown
Real-world fuel economy
Stiff Sport ride

The 2018 Ford Edge ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Ford Edge has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
User-friendly infotainment system
Spacious, comfortable, quiet cabin
Above-average fuel economy with standard engine
Smooth, carlike handling

Cons
Transmission can be slow to shif

By: 
usnews.com

If all you need is a basic crossover without having to worry about a bunch of pricey options, the SE is your best bet. But for most Edge shoppers, we think the SEL is the way to go. It offers more amenities and access to options

Pros
Ride quality is smoother than many of its competitors
Plenty of space for passengers and luggage
Fuel-efficient and performance-oriented engines

Cons
Transmission is occasionally slow to react
Base engine may be too sluggish for some drivers
