That the GLC Coupe puts comfort over agility is no bad thing – many buyers will be glad of it. This theme carries through to the inside, where the driver gets a decent driving position with good forward visibility and generous steering wheel and electric seat adjustability, including electric lumbar adjustment. Our only real complaint is that the pedals are noticeably offset to the right, although not enough to cause serious discomfort.

Naturally, the GLC Coupé’s sloping roof means the view backwards is obscured, but a reversing camera comes as standard to get around this. Handily, you also get front and rear parking sensors and a system that can automatically steer the car into a parking space while you operate the accelerator and brake.

The GLC Coupe’s dashboard might look swanky with its metal effect trims, open pore wood and high-definition display, but a few prods and pokes reveals that it isn’t quite as impeccably screwed together as the BMW X4 or Porsche Macan.

All GLC Coupes come with Mercedes’ 10.3in ‘MBUX’ infotainment system that can be operated as a touchscreen, via a touchpad between the seats or another much smaller one on the steering wheel. It’s a responsive system with sharp graphics and menus that are for the most part logical, but it isn’t quite as user friendly as BMW’s iDrive as found in the X4. We also need to point out that you don’t get Apple CarPlay or Android Auto unless you jump up to AMG Line Premium trim; it can’t be added as an option on AMG Line.
