Mercedes has been on a new product offensive lately as part of a constant tug-of-war for the luxury sales crown with BMW and Audi. The GLC (the new name signifies that it shares a platform with the C-Class) is in a very competitive and profitable segment and Mercedes hopes it will pull in huge sales. The center console is mercifully clear of clutter and excess buttons, the switchgear feels substantial, and the Benz’s new minimalist approach to interiors is going to win a lot of fans. Audi traditionally has the best interiors in the market, even for its entry-level offerings, and Mercedes is certainly stepping up its game. The GLC’s weight has been cut by 176 pounds, which helps it get about 19 percent better mileage, Mercedes says. The new technology starts inside with a new touchpad and rotary knob that controls the infotainment system.
A head-up display that shows speed, safety and navigation information is also new to the GLC. The tech upgrades that will really make a big difference can be found underneath the sheetmetal.
Optional safety equipment includes Distronic Plus with steering assist, Pre-Safe Braking with pedestrian detection, Cross-Traffic Assist, blind spot monitor, Lane-Keep Assist (that steers you back into your lane and applies the brake if you drift over a solid line) and Pre-Safe Plus, which adds more safety in the occasion of a rear-end collision.
The GLC will come standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission (operated by a column stalk and not a traditional center console gear shifter, freeing up space on the dash) and five driving modes: Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual. During the drive from Basel, Switzerland, to the wine region of Germany, the diesel proved to be a bit noisy and perceivably rougher than the gas engine. Depending on what mode you’re in, shifts can happen somewhat abruptly, and it felt strangely rough sometimes for a nine-speed unit (but at lower speeds, shifts are quite smooth). Despite its high centre of gravity, the SUV does feel nimble and easy to maneuver, driving more like a jacked-up car than an SUV.
Most GLC owners will likely never see road conditions worse than a snow storm or an unpaved path to the cottage, but Mercedes wants to assure you that this SUV isn’t just a poseur.
Armed with different off-road modes (a new optional feature), the GLC is capable of impressive feats. After its redesign, the GLC has proven to be the segment leader when it comes to style and substance. In 2003, we received full UNICEF accreditation and since then we have saved over 9,000 children in more than 33 countries.
Compared side by side, the two are quite similar on paper, but when driven, the two feel entirely different.

Surprisingly similar in some aspects, yet still completely different in others, these two hatches take different approaches to a common goal. Despite how similar the Kia and Nissan may appear on paper, they are very different in execution.

After its thrilling AMG GT, uber luxurious Maybach and entry-level GLA launches now comes the money maker: The all new GLC mid-sized SUV, which replaces the popular GLK.
Its timing, aggressive redesign and raft of new technology makes it the current segment leader among the BMW X3 and Audi Q5.
It easily beats both the X3 and Q5 in this arena in perceived quality, fit and finish and just how pleasing it is to the eye. The touchpad mimics the gestures of a smartphone and allows you to draw in letters with your finger, swipe to move or pinch to zoom. A diesel engine will be available in Europe at launch, and it will eventually make its way over to North America later in 2016 as a 2017 model. I mistook the shifter for the wipers once and accidentally knocked the car into neutral, but this is something most drivers will get used to quickly. Low-end torque is great in both the diesel and the gas unit, especially in Sport mode, and passing on the highway happened quickly and without white knuckles. I drove the GLC in Sport mode most of the time, which makes it more responsive to throttle and steering input and stays more composed in the corners. Mercedes designed a legitimately dicey off-road course where we were able to drive some of the diesel models. Loaded with advanced technology, a handsome new look and a chic, luxurious interior, it makes up for the fact that it is geared more towards comfort than true sportiness, which is what most regular drivers want.
GLC lineup in the near future, including an AMG model, a plug-in hybrid GLC350e (unofficially for the 2018 model year), and diesel GLC300d.

It has all the right proportions and immediately stands out as something luxurious and with sporty intentions.
More importantly, the GLC gets many of the safety and driver assistance technologies first seen on the S-Class: Collision Prevention Assist, Crosswind Assist, Active Highbeam Assist and Attention Assist are all standard. You might have to use the paddle shifters to force a downshift for the best results if you’re in Eco or Comfort mode. The course featured steep gravel inclines and declines and huge ruts where only three wheels had traction.
It’s a weird sensation to feel the car creeping down a hill with your foot completely off the brake. The rear-wheel-drive GLC300 will start from $38,950, while the GLC300 4Matic starts at $40,950 in the U.S. It definitely looks fresher, sleeker and more aggressive than its bubbly BMW X3 and conservative, aging Audi Q5 competition. Instead, a seven-inch display screen operated by the touchpad and knob is standard. In use, it can be a bit fiddly to use and the system requires a learning curve before it becomes easy to navigate.
I suspect nearly every GLC driver in Canada will opt for the 4Matic all-wheel-drive model, as it makes the SUV more practical in bad weather and easier to handle. In Sport mode, it’s very willing to shift down a gear or two on its own if strong acceleration is called for. Those who want a sportier GLC rocket should just wait for an AMG model, which will definitely heat things up. It was truly impressive how composed the car remained where many cars would have already called a tow truck.
