Mercedes-Benz GLC-class

Mercedes-Benz replaced its GLK-Class in 2016 with the GLC-Class. The ‘G’ stands for Geländewagen, which simply means ‘off-road vehicle’ in German. GLC therefore, is the German equivalent of SUV, C-Class. The 2017 GLC retail prices start at $39,150 in the US market.

The car’s long wheelbase, big wheels and wide track are the results of design experiments in the wind tunnel and on the track. The GLC300 packs a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine with direct injection and multispark technology to deliver 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque over a wide rpm range.

The GLC’s 9 speed automatic transmission is light and efficient. Quick and smooth gear shifts can also be achieved using the shift paddles. Five shift modes determine how the system transitions between gears. Its selective damping system hardens the suspension in the corners while maintaining a smooth ride quality. The car is fitted with ergonomic controls and an optional head-up display.
