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

We can appreciate the memory function for both front seats, Burmester premium stereo and keyless entry with hands free tailgate operation, but this trim level’s panoramic roof really eats into head room. It’s a lot more cash than AMG Line Premium, too.

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