Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

In the highly competitive compact luxury SUV segment, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is definitely worth your consideration. It combines a practical size, strong performance and a luxurious cabin with a long list of optional amenities.The existing Mercedes-Benz GLC300 comes off its debut year with a minor shuffling of features. The big news is the addition of the high-performance AMG GLC 43, with a potent V6 engine.

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

Cons
Technology interface isn't always easy to use
Only one four-cylinder engine offered unless you step up to the ultra-high-performance AMG model.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class makes a terrific combination of the features and practical needs most buyers want in an attractive package.
Complementing the automaker's C-Class sedan, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is a well thought-out compact crossover that offers its own swoopy styling and attractive range of engines.

Pros
Spacious, attractive interior
Wide range of engine and body choices
"Coupe" bodystyle is unique
Comprehensive available safety features

Cons
Safety features come at a price
"Coupe" loses some practicality
Base GLC300 can feel numb
Diesel model delayed (again)

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class ranks 3 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. If you're looking for refinement – both inside and out – you'll want to look at the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC. This polished luxury compact SUV comes with more standard features than many of its competitors and has a handsome interior that emphasizes simple elegance.

Pros
Comfortable, elegant interior
Abundance of standard and optional safety features
Quiet, refined ride

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity behind rear seats

By:

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee still antes up considerable trail-riding talent, but other crossover SUVs do a better job of daily driving.
The name is one of the oldest applied to a modern-day SUV, but the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is no Conestoga wagon. It's a thoroughly modern family wagon, recast from its hardcore sport-utility roots into something much broader, more capable in all sorts of conditions.

Pros
Family-sized interior (albeit with no third row)
Daring exterior
Front seat comfort
Quick enough with the base engine
Strong active-safety set

Cons
Exterior styling doesn't feel fully committed-to
Numb steering
Gas mileage okay but not excellent
Transmission woes come and go

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee ranks 13 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Jeep Cherokee combines an upscale and spacious cabin with good off-road capability. Although you can find a smoother ride and larger cabin in competitors like the Honda CR-V or Ford Escape, the Cherokee’s off-road capability means it strikes a pretty rare balance in this class.

Pros
Premium-quality cabin
Spacious and comfortable seating
Great off-road capability with 4WD option

Cons
Sluggish base engine
Below-average fuel economy
Small cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 Cherokee gets only minor equipment revisions, including standard xenon headlights on every trim but the base Sport. This is also the first full year for the top-of-the-line Overland trim that was introduced in mid-2016.

Pros
Available V6 engine provides smooth and assertive power
Absorbent suspension smooths out rough surfaces
Capable and user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen on many models
Trailhawk offers unique off-road capability for a small crossover.

Cons
Sluggish acceleration with four-cylinder engine
Less cargo capacity than other small crossovers.
