2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Priced at $39,875

ATLANTA — The all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class compact crossover SUV, which is slated to arrive at U.S. Mercedes-Benz dealerships in November, will start at $39,875, including a $925 destination charge, Mercedes-Benz USA announced Tuesday.

The base price is for the GLC300 rear-wheel-drive model.

The other GLC model, the all-wheel-drive GLC300 4Matic, starts at $41,875, including shipping.

The GLC slots above the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA and below the 2016 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE in size and price. It also replaces the outgoing GLK-Class.

Pricing has not been announced for the 2016 GLA. The new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 starts at $52,025 with rear-wheel drive, including shipping. It arrives at dealerships in August.

The 2016 GLC features all-new sheet metal and a new interior design, differing greatly from its GLK predecessor.

At its U.S. launch, the 2016 GLC300 will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard. Mercedes-Benz said additional powertrain choices will be available in 2016 and 2017, including both diesel and hybrid options.

Competitors include the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and Volvo XC60.

Edmunds says: Like last year's redesigned Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the new GLC-Class SUV moves a bit upmarket in terms of its design, interior quality and most notably, price.
