The GLC’s boot is, officially at least, exactly the same size as a BMW X3’s. However, that doesn’t tell the whole story because the 550-litre figure includes some underfloor storage – the main load area is a fair bit shallower than the BMW’s, although similarly long and wide. The rival Audi Q5 and Land Rover Discovery also have bigger boots.
The GLC's load bay is widest at the very back of the car, which means you can slot in long, narrow items, such as a set of golf clubs, easily enough. Folding down the rear seats leaves a virtually flat extended load bay with no annoying steps or ridges.
All models come with powered tailgate, retaining nets on the boot floor and a lockable compartment under the floor itself.
