Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021, Mercedes gifts the GLC lineup with more standard features and more standalone options. A passive hands-free entry as well as a self-parking function and rear cross-traffic alert are now included on every model. Automatic high-beam assist and a 360-degree camera system are now available separately on a GLC300 without being bundled as part of a package.

Pros
Quiet and refined,
gorgeous and spacious interior,
more space inside than a C-Class.

Cons
Lacks driving verve,
limited cargo space,
most driver assists aren't standard should you want them.
