Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Two new performance models join the 2018 GLC-Class Coupe lineup: the AMG GLC 63 and AMG GLC 63 S. Mercedes has also renamed most of the GLC's options packages to better convey the features added. Heated wipers are now standard, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can now be added with the Smartphone Integration package.

PROS
Elegant and premium interior design
Excellent balance between agile handling and a comfortable ride
Abundant driver safety aids work great
Four- and six-cylinder engines are fuel-efficient for the class

CONS
Hard to brake smoothly
Rear headroom isn't great, especially in the middle
Infotainment controls aren't always easy to use
Less useful cargo area than in regular GLC

Mercedes-AMG peppers performance and spicy styling into its coupe/crossover casserole. The powertrain platter includes a 362-hp twin-turbo V-6 or twin-turbo V-8s pumping out 469 or 503 ponies. All engines pair with a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.

Pros
Porsche 911 quick,
grippy handling,
strong brakes,
V-8 rumble.

Cons
Stiff ride,
noisy tires,
feels big and heavy from behind the wheel.

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

Fresh off its 2019 redesign, the X4 carries over into 2020 with minimal changes. The biggest news is that the twin-turbo six-cylinder of the M40i gets a serious boost in power, from 355 to 382. Base models add BMW's Comfort Access system as standard equipment. This system allows you to access the vehicle without removing the key fob from your pocket.

Pros
Snazzy exterior design,
good fuel economy,
entertaining driving dynamics from both trim levels.

Cons
Stingy cargo capacity relative to that of rival crossovers,
slim selection of standard driver-assistance features,
Android Auto is conspicuously absent.

By:

The 2020 BMW X4 offers powerful engine performance, lithe handling, and an upscale cabin with user-friendly features, but it trails the competition in terms of interior space. This luxury compact SUV does not have an overall score or ranking because it hasn’t been fully crash tested.

Pros
Enjoyable ride and handling
Potent turbocharged engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Handsome interior

Cons
Snug rear headroom
Below-average cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

No significant changes for 2020.Part of the second X4 generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Both available engines are smooth, powerful and fuel-efficient
Easy personalization thanks to abundant standard and optional features
Impressive handling for an SUV

Cons
Sloping roofline compromises rear headroom and cargo space
Android Auto is not available
Pricey when fully optioned
