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.

get the best price

AMG Line Premium is the one we’d go for. It adds real leather seats, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 20in alloy wheels, better headlights, an upgraded stereo, wireless charging and a 12.3in digital instrument cluster amongst other luxuries, for a reasonable amount more than AMG Line.

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