Review

As premium SUVs go, the GLC isn’t the best all-rounder – regular versions lag behind rivals, particularly on practicality and driving dynamics. But good engines and a pleasant interior still make it worth considering. Meanwhile, if pace is everything to you (and running costs aren’t) then certainly look at the exceptionally quick AMG-powered options. We’d still advise looking at the Audi Q5 if you’re after a great all-rounder, or BMW X3 M40i if the GLC43 has tempted you.

Entry-level AMG Line certainly gets plenty of equipment including 19in alloy wheels, an electric tailgate, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, electrically adjusted leather seats, three-zone climate control and a 10.3in touchscreen infotainment system with sat nav.

We’re yet to try this plug-in hybrid diesel engine
