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:

For 2017, the NX 300h comes with all-wheel drive only. It also receives a standard Scout GPS Link navigation app that streams from a smartphone.

Pros
Class-best fuel economy
Impeccable cabin construction
Generous backseat room for the segment.

Cons
Limited cargo capacity
Slow acceleration
Potentially distracting Remote Touch interface
All-wheel-drive system less capable than those of non-hybrids.
