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.
