More Fun Than A Stelvio? | 2020 Mercedes Benz GLC300 Review

Mercedes-Benz made significant improvements to its popular GLC crossover, meaning its sharper, has more tech features, it’s better to drive, and is a hair more expensive. As typical with a vehicle wearing the three-pointed star, getting carried away with options mean you’ll easily cause the sticker price to skyrocket quite rapidly. Despite being a mid cycle refresh, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class got some meaningful upgrades including the addition of the the slick MBUX interface. That gives you your own onboard personal assistant that you can speak to and allow you to control the infotainment system using speech.

Under the hood of the GLC 300 is Mercedes’ 2.0-liter turbo-four paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Although this is the least powerful powertrain available, it’ll surprise you by just how capable it is when you get it on the road. Despite having only 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque on tap, the GLC 300 moves with a lot of verve, giving it an energetic feel the moment you put your foot down on the accelerator. The GLC isn’t a one trick pony either. It’s one of the better handling vehicles in the luxury compact crossover class and will happily take corners without much drama.
