In many ways the Mercedes GLC is a car that corrects a costly misjudgement on behalf of its maker.

When Mercedes was developing this model's predecessor, the GLK, it decided that it wasn't worth engineering the car for right-hand drive. However, shortly afterwards the market for premium-badged SUVs exploded, and Mercedes found itself without an answer to the likes of the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Range Rover Evoque.

So, better late than never, it released this GLC, a model that slots neatly between the smaller GLA and larger GLE in Mercedes' model line-up.

It isn't anywhere near as practical as the seven-seat Land Rover Discovery Sport, but it’s only slightly smaller than the X3 inside, and it has enough space for four tall adults, as well as a decent-sized boot for their luggage. CO2 emissions undercut the majority of its rivals, too, which help to make the GLC a surprisingly affordable company car.

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.
