Introduction

What Car? says...

Despite the brand having a long history of making SUVs and four-wheel drive cars, it’s a bit of a surprise to find that the Mercedes GLC was a latecomer to the large SUV party. Launched in 2015, the GLC quickly became a popular choice for those who are partial to the three-pointed star and a lofty driving position.

Facelifted in 2019, the GLC offers a pair of four-cylinder diesels and a single four-cylinder petrol engine, with a plug-in hybrid for those who want to go green or to save a few quid in company car tax. If you’re in need of more firepower, the two AMG engines might suit you; there’s a 385bhp GLC43 and a GLC63 with up to 503bhp. This wide range of engines help the GLC to square up to its closest rivals, the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.

Sharing much under the surface with the Mercedes C-Class saloon, the five-seat GLC can’t match the versatility of the seven-seat Land Rover Discovery Sport; even though the cheaper Mercedes GLB can. The GLC is slightly smaller than the X3 inside, but has enough space for four tall adults, as well as a decent-sized boot for their luggage. Its official CO2 emissions are competitive, helping to make the GLC a relatively affordable company car.

But should you buy one? Read on over the next few pages to find out everything you need to know if you're considering a Mercedes GLC, including which engine, trim and options make the most sense.
