Mercedes-Benz GLC

(2015 - present)

The Mercedes-Benz GLC is a medium-sized premium SUV/crossover, which sits between the smaller GLA and larger GLE in the Mercedes-Benz SUV family. It was first launched in the middle of 2015 and has been updated in early 2019, with the first updated models set to arrive in the UK by the end of the summer.

The GLC is available as both a conventional SUV and as a ‘coupé’ model that is actually an SUV with a chopped rear cabin – basically a liftback rather than a coupé. We are building a separate page for this model, as well as for the Mercedes-AMG versions, so check back soon.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC has received generally positive reviews from the UK motoring media, with scores ranging from average to outstanding. According to The Car Expert’s unique Expert Rating system, the GLC is currently ranked above average compared to its premium SUV rivals, but falls short of the best in class.
