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

By:

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
