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.

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class can be a soothing urban oasis—or a roaring twin-turbo V-8 track star. It’s your call.

Pros
Great looks
AMG’s unbridled performance
Comfortable ride and interior
Good rear seat room
Good active safety features

Cons
Top prices approach $100,000
Compromised outward vision in coupes
Small rear doors in coupes

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class's #3 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Compact SUVs category. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class has a score of 8.2 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Potent engine lineup
Posh, comfortable interior
Surefooted handling
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Coupe models have cramped rear seats and cargo area
Higher starting price than many rivals

The 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV finishes near the bottom of our hybrid and electric SUV rankings. It’s outdated and less comfortable than rivals, and in a real “you had one job” scenario, its fuel economy ratings aren’t even that impressive.

Pros
Decent cargo capacity
Excellent warranty

Cons
Looks and feels antiquated in almost every aspect
Low-rent interior
Below-average fuel economy ratings compared to other PHEVs
Disappointing powertrain, handling, and ride quality

By: 
usnews.com

Mitsubishi has already revealed the next-generation Outlander, but it has still introduced several significant changes to the outgoing one for the 2021 model year. Most notably, the Outlander lineup is now only available with a plug-in-hybrid powertrain. Gone are the base four-cylinder engine and available V-6. A third row of seats is also gone because it's not compatible with the location of the PHEV's battery pack. The latter now has a larger capacity than before and offers more all-electric driving range (24 miles versus 22), and the PHEV's top speed increases from 79 to 83 mph during all-electric operation. The plug-in's old 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is replaced with a more powerful 2.4-liter version. And now with a bigger rear-mounted electric motor, the PHEV's combined horsepower increases by 31 to 221 horses total.

Pros
Plug-in-hybrid powertrain feels responsive,
adjustable regenerative-braking settings,
substantial cargo space.

Cons
No longer offers a third row,
considerably more expensive than before,
other plug-in hybrids are much more efficient.

For 2021 New battery pack offers more electric range than last year's model.Updated software reduces vibrations and noise from the engine.Limited Edition trim introduced with more standard features.

Pros
Generous list of standard features
Plug-in hybrid powertrain provides about 24 miles of all-electric range
Standard all-wheel drive for enhanced traction on slippery surfaces

Cons
Poor cabin quality with lots of creaks and rattles
Weak acceleration and vague steering make for a bad driving experience
It doesn't offer a third row like the regular Mitsubishi Outlander
Small gas tank limits overall range
