What Car? says...

After BMW divided opinion, but found success, with its X6 and X4 SUV coupés, Mercedes has decided to get in on the act. First the company launched a sleeker version of the large GLE, and now this, its smaller GLC Coupé.

Underneath it's based on the firm's C-Class saloon, and shares much of its front end with its more traditional SUV stablemate, the GLC. However, the Coupé is actually lower, slightly longer and gets a more raked rear roofline for an injection of style.

The aforementioned X4 is the closest rival for the new GLC Coupé, but Mercedes also has one eye on the similarly-priced Porsche Macan.

Read on over the next few pages to see how it stacks up against the competition, and also to find out which trims and engines we favour.
