That Best Used Mercedes-Benz GLC Could Be At Charlie Clark. Check With Us Today.
The Mercedes Benz GLC Class is a sporty, smooth, classy, and technologically advanced little compact crossover SUV that straddles the line between compact and mid-sized. Starting in the 2016 model year and running until the present, it has been a mainstay in the luxury SUV market and represents the C-class well. But what can you expect when purchasing a Mercedes Benz GLC Class? Check out our breakdown below.
Pros Of The Mercedes-Benz GLC Class
There is a lot to love with a used GLC Class, and while it's not perfect, these are the best parts of ownership:
• A Superior, Quiet, And Upscale Interior: Interior features in the GLC Class vary depending on which model years you are considering. They all come with a push-button start, dual-screen displays, various driver assistance features, and standard connectivity. Newer models have the additional standards with Android Auto, Apple Car Play, USB-C ports in the front and back, dual-zone climate control, and 56.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Moreover, the interior has some of the most sleek and stylish faux leather, comfortable seating, and beautiful accented colors.
• Quick Acceleration And Great Performance: With a 255 hp engine with RWD and AWD toggleable features, it can perform well on and off the road. It is responsive, smooth, and quiet, making for one of the most comfortable rides around. The fuel efficiency is adequate, ranging from 25-30 MPG for city and highway driving, which is comparable to other SUVs in the same class. However, limited hybrid options on older model years hold it back in fuel efficiency.
• Five-Star Rated Safety Features: The NHTSA has awarded a five out of five-star rating on most model years of the GLC Class. Furthermore, this is an outlier in the SUV sector, where most models average 4 to 4.5 stars. Some of the stand-out safety features in the GLC Class include standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, available lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and optional adaptive cruise control.
• Pushes The C-Class Above And Beyond: The GLC Class can do what other compacts cannot with optional offroad-focused models. It has the potential for all-wheel drive capabilities, superior traction to others in the class, and can take on all but the most treacherous trails.
Cons Of The Mercedes-Benz GLC Class
No vehicle is perfect, and the Mercedes Benz GLC Class is no outlier in that regard. Despite its luxurious interior and incredible luxury, two significant factors keep the GLC Class from being flawless. First, the GLC class has a relatively mediocre performance compared to other, larger SUVs and suffers from its size. Second, is a notorious reputation of the newest models having somewhat spotty reliability. Some reviewers give it a glowing recommendation, while there is a pervasive level of owners who bemoan the finicky reliability and need for repairs. So, ensure you do your research and look up the history of a specific used vehicle before making a purchase.
Is The GLC Class Worth Considering?
If you are looking for a mid-level luxury SUV that handles better and keeps you safer than the competition, you can't go wrong with the GLC Class. Its pros far outweigh its cons, and for the older models, you can get a relatively modern car for a far lower price point than other competitive luxury vehicles.
