2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Buyer's Guide

The all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class compact luxury crossover SUV slots into the Mercedes-Benz sport utility lineup as a replacement for the GLK-Class, which sees its run come to an end this year. Mercedes-Benz recently revamped its SUV nomenclatures to be more closely aligned with its passenger cars. Thus, like the C-Class sedan, the GLC-Class SUV is the second to the smallest entry in the lineup containing the GLA, GLC, GLE, and the upcoming GLS. For its platform, the GLC-Class crossover borrows its front-end architecture from the C-Class, its mid-section from the E-Class, and employs an all-new rear end. All pre-existing components have been suitably modified for duty in a crossover SUV.

What makes it move?

Propulsion systems include gasoline, diesel, and a plug-in hybrid. The gasoline engine powering the GLC 300 is a turbocharged four-cylinder displacing 2.0-liters and producing 241 horsepower and 273 ft-lbs of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive—in the form of the 300 GLC 4MATIC will be offered as well. The diesel-powered GLC 300d offering is expected to produce 204 horsepower and 370 ft-lbs of torque from the same displacement and configuration. A GLC 350e plug-in hybrid is also expected to follow—around 2017 or so. This powertrain is anticipated to deliver up to 21 miles of all-electric driving, 320 horsepower, and 413 ft-lbs of torque. Each variant uses a nine-speed automatic transmission.
