2017 Mercedes GLC Overview (2)

 

Put the C-class sedan on stilts and you get the GLC-class, a competent luxury crossover that also features the excellent interior of its sedan sibling. There’s lots of standard tech and safety, including collision-prevention and crosswind assist, adaptive suspension, and keyless start. The GLC300 has a 241-hp 2.0-liter four that pairs with a paddle-shifted nine-speed automatic and rear drive; all-wheel drive is optional. The seats are comfortable, the interior quiet, just like a real Mercedes.
