Special features for 2016

The new GLC-Class Mercedes builds upon the success of the previous GLK, with softer lines and a better overall road presence. It is an excellent around-town option and easy to maneuver in tight spaces, but it is also quite capable when conditions demand extra performance from a GLC equipped with 4MATIC. It goes head to head with models like BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Volvo XC60. The GLC is priced competitively -- beneath the Q5, equally to the X3, and slightly more than the XC60 -- yet it outshines the X3 in its interior amenities, and its typical Mercedes build quality truly sets it apart.
