GLC 250 4Matic 9G-Tronic
We are yet to try out this variant
GLC 63 S 4Matic 9G-Tronic
This range-topping turbocharged V8 model is ballistically fast, and is good fun to drive in general. It sounds fantastic, too. It is, however, not as good to drive as rivals like the Porsche Cayenne Turbo or Range Rover Sport SVR, so it’s still hard to recommend in this class.
GLC 63 4Matic 9G-Tronic

GLC 350d 4Matic 9G-Tronic
A powerful yet smooth V6 diesel engine that helps the GLC waft along. Expensive, though, and emits a lot more CO2 than the 220d and 250d.
GLC 43 4Matic 9G-Tronic
The top of the range GLC 43 4Matic receives a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission and a rear-biased all-wheel drive system. Mercedes claim that a sub five-second 0-62mph time should be achievable and, given the space, the GLC 43 should rocket up to an electronically limited 155mph top speed. With plenty of low down shove, it’s a flexible engine, and feels well suited to the mid-sized SUV.
GLC 250d 4Matic 9G-Tronic
Our preferred engine is essentially the same 2.1-litre diesel found in the entry-level 220 d. However, it’s been tuned to produce an extra 33bhp and considerably more low-end shove, which makes faster driving more effortless. A nine-speed automatic gearbox comes as standard.
GLC 220d 4Matic 9G-Tronic
One of only two engines to choose from, this 168bhp 2.1-litre diesel is paired with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. It pulls well enough and can ultimately whisk the GLC from 0-60mph in a respectable 8.3 seconds, although the gutsier 250 d can accelerate up to speed quickly in a more relaxed fashion, so is worth the small premium.
