2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe Review

  • Elegant and premium interior design
  • Excellent balance between agile handling and a comfortable ride
  • Abundant driver safety aids work great
  • Four- and six-cylinder engines are fuel-efficient for the class
  • Less useful cargo area than in regular GLC
  • Rear headroom isn't great, especially in the middle
  • Pricey for a compact-class SUV
  • Now comes with the innovative MBUX infotainment system
  • Base model gets new engine with more power
  • More refinements to active driver aids
  • Part of the first GLC generation introduced for 2017

It's fitting that Mercedes-Benz can call a four-door SUV a "coupe" and get away with it. After all, this is the company that ignited the dubious trend to deem nearly any car with a tapering roofline a coupe with its fastback-style, four-door CLS more than a decade ago.

The coupe distinction was once reserved for cars with two doors, but the lines have blurred. Today, several Mercedes models use the label, including the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe. Despite its name, the GLC Coupe is a bona fide four-door SUV but with a sleeker and less boxy look than most SUVs. And whatever you might think of the misuse of the nomenclature, the coupe is nearly as easy to live with as its standard GLC counterpart.

Like the standard GLC, the GLC Coupe features a top-notch cabin fitted with soft leather, decorative wood and metal accents, and some of today's most advanced entertainment technology. For 2020, the GLC Coupe comes with the new MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) voice command system, which can recognize most natural-speech requests to control phone, navigation, media and cabin functions. It'll even tell you jokes.

If jokes aren't your thing, you can also bypass MBUX and go straight to Siri or Google Assistant through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are now included as standard features. Also standard: a larger 10-inch touchscreen infotainment display (also operable by a touchpad in the center console). Other changes for 2020 include new grille and headlight designs and more power.

The GLC Coupe offers its same trio of engines as before, only now the punchy turbo four-cylinder gets 14 more horsepower, and the heavier-duty V6 gets 23 hp more (gains of around 6% and 7%, respectively). The two recklessly powerful V8 engines carry over unchanged, with the mill in the AMG GLC 63 S making more than 500 hp. Few other compact SUVs, luxury or otherwise, come with such a blistering engine.

The GLC Coupe's downsides mirror those of most four-door sedans and SUVs that pose as coupes. There's less maximum cargo space (49.4 cubic feet in the coupe, 56.5 cubic feet in the standard GLC) and less rear headroom. You also need to consider the coupe's significant price premium over the regular GLC.

But if you don't mind the compromise in utility and prefer the coupe's sleek looks, the extra cost for the GLC Coupe's comfort, luxury and performance will be worth it.

Notably, we picked the 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 63 S Coupe as one of Edmunds' Fastest SUVs for 2019.

Which GLC-Class Coupe does Edmunds recommend?

With more power and new standard features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the base model GLC 300 is more appealing than ever. It's a great choice if you just want Mercedes quality and cachet in a small SUV package. But we're still partial to the AMG GLC 43, which also gets a boost in power to complement its cushy air suspension and athletic all-wheel-drive handling.

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe models

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is a compact luxury SUV offered in four trim levels: GLC 300, AMG GLC 43, AMG GLC 63 and AMG GLC 63 S.

The base GLC 300 starts with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine (255 horsepower, 273 lb-ft of torque), nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

It comes nicely equipped with features such as adaptive suspension damping, a power liftgate, a sunroof, and LED headlights. Inside you'll find heated front seats and simulated-leather upholstery, along with tech features including a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, an eight-speaker sound system with satellite radio, and the new MBUX voice-control system. Automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring are also included.

The AMG GLC 43 is equipped much the same as the 300, but it boosts the performance factor with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 (385 hp, 384 lb-ft), a sport-tuned air suspension, upgraded brakes, and more aggressive stability control settings. It's the one to get if you need your SUV to do double-duty as a sport coupe.

More extreme performance levels are available from the AMG GLC 63 and AMG GLC 63 S trims. The AMG GLC 63 introduces a turbocharged V8 (469 hp, 479 lb-ft), sport-tuned transmission and all-wheel-drive systems, and an electronically controlled limited-slip differential. While the AMG GLC 63 is mostly a performance upgrade from the AMG GLC 43, a notable interior upgrade is the included navigation system and 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

The AMG GLC 63 S pushes performance to the limit with a higher-output V8 engine (503 hp and 516 lb-ft).

Many option packages are available for all trim levels. Safety-minded buyers might consider the Driver Assistance package (which adds adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist among other features) or the Parking Assistance package (the self-parking system, parking sensors and a surround-view camera).

Many features can also be added à la carte, such as ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, adaptive high beams, a premium Burmester surround-sound system, and a wireless charging pad.

5/5 stars, Ignore the haters
M.J.G.,
GLC 300 4MATIC 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 9A)
This car is beautiful. And it is VERY quiet and soft ride. The negative review posted that same thing on many pages. I have not had that experience with this car. This car is perfect for those of us who need a small SUV but don't wanna look like soccer mom.
5/5 stars, Life rejuvenation

Sweet power and awesome COUPE bodywork. Get all the adaptive options.... Real real drive
1/5 stars, 2020 AMG GLC 63 S COUPE
SANG ,
AMG GLC 63 S 4dr SUV AWD (4.0L 8cyl Turbo 9A)
It is absolutely not recommended as the owner of this vehicle. 1.The finishing quality is not good for the price. 2.A lot of noise occurs while driving. 3. High-speed driving is also unstable. 4. The ride on city roads is the worst ever. 5. The most serious problem is that the dealer does not have experienced technicians. If there is a problem with the vehicle, it takes too much time and you have to visit the service center several times. This vehicle cannot be recommended except for a hand-made eight-cylinder engine. If you want this vehicle, you should test it for as long as possible and take a close look. It is also not a Mercedes-Benz customer upgrade vehicle, but a vehicle that loses customers.
5/5 stars, Beautiful quiet car.
Edith,
GLC 300 4MATIC 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 9A)
This car should be more readily available but it is harder to come by. Much more attractive than the bmw. Classy and sexy and fast. I’d highly recommend. Mercedes is finally designing attractive cars.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe videos

[MUSIC PLAYING] ELANA SCHERR: Oh, man. It has been a long day here at Willow Springs. It was 8 million degrees, there were wolves. We definitely almost died about a jillion times. KURT NIEBUHR: Holy [BLEEP]. ELANA SCHERR: But it was worth it because we were able to race all three of these SUVs, and they're all good. [MUSIC PLAYING] ANNOUNCER: 3, 2, 1, go! ELANA SCHERR: This is a 2020 BMW X3 M Competition. Under the hood is a turbocharged, 3 liter, 6 cylinder engine similar to what you'd find in the X3 M40i. But instead of 382 horsepower and 365 pound feet of torque, The X3 M Competition boosts the figures to 503 horsepower and 442 pound feet of torque. If you're looking for something to surprise the other parents at daycare drop-off, the X3 M will do it. Warning, car makers: if you put competition in the name of your car, we'll consider that an order. If you have friends who hate the whole idea of a crossover coupé, it doesn't matter because you'll be going so fast in the 2020 AMG GLC 63 S coupé that you won't even hear their complaints. This beast is powered by a turbocharged, 4 liter V8, conveniently also rated at 503 horsepower. But bragging 516 pound feet of torque. This version of the GLC is an absolute monster, and since it has a launch control option specifically called race start, we obviously have to start it in a race. Ah, the Tesla Model Y. Unburdened by geared transmissions and full gas tanks, as well as being hundreds of pounds lighter than either the X3 or the GLC, the all-electric Model Y is just a charge away from charging away. This is the Edmunds long-term Model Y performance performance. Yes, that's right, it's the performance model with the performance package, and we're going to see if that double performance can perform. All three crossovers in our race are all-wheel drive, and we plan to use whatever launch assist technology they offer when we line them up and launch them. These three coupé UVs are putting the sport back in SUV, and with radically different power plans. Which one does it best? SPEAKER 1: What are you doing to prepare your car for the race? KURT NIEBUHR: I mean, I'm trying to talk real nice to it. Let it know that it's fast. ELANA SCHERR: I wanted to make sure that the transmission was in the right settings, and I wanted to make sure that all the shift points for the engine were right and that it had the-- oh no, wait. None of that, because it doesn't have any of that. KURT NIEBUHR: Seriously? This car is not too picky about that kind of stuff. You can put it in sport, you can put it in sport plus, or race mode. Then it's brake pedal hold it down, throttle pedal hold it down, and then just let it rip. REESE COUNTS: So sport plus transmissions, sport plus suspension, 6 sharp on the transmission, and then ready for launch control. ELANA SCHERR: A very important part of any race is intimidating your rivals. And normally, you do that by revving up the engine, so let's-- [CAR DINGS QUIETLY] Sorry. [MUSIC PLAYING] ANNOUNCER: Ready. 3, 2, 1, REESE COUNTS: Ah, [BLEEP] ELANA SCHERR: What happened? REESE COUNTS: I jumped it. ANNOUNCER: Drivers ready? Let's do this. 3, 2, 1, go! ELANA SCHERR: You guys all good behind me? KURT NIEBUHR: Yep. REESE COUNTS: Yeah. ELANA SCHERR: I have the feeling that I either slightly jumped that start, or the boys were badly sleeping. I mean, it is nighttime. It is well past their bedtime. They are both very old. So could be that they were napping. Ooh, bunny! REESE COUNTS: So my launch control didn't activate. KURT NIEBUHR: I'm not sure if you got a really good launch, or you did jump in I'm not sure. But didn't really matter. You pulled away anyway. ELANA SCHERR: Yeah, it was weird. It was like the second half felt like a totally different car than the first half. Are you guys going to use launch control again, or are you just going to foot break it? KURT NIEBUHR: I'm going to use launch control. REESE COUNTS: I'm going to use it this time. ANNOUNCER: Ready. 3, 2, 1, Go. REESE COUNTS: Man, this thing is sluggish [INAUDIBLE] ELANA SCHERR: Is that what you felt like in the GT500, Kurt? KURT NIEBUHR: That's exactly what I felt like but without that smug, EV feeling that comes along with it. Is there something like an electric supercharger? ELANA SCHERR: It does make a kind of supercharger whine, so I'm basically just telling myself that it's just a very quiet V8. KURT NIEBUHR: I think we could do one more quarter mile run and then do a roll race after that. ANNOUNCER: Drivers ready. 3, 2, 1, go. REESE COUNTS: God, those two are so close. I wanted this to be better, but. ELANA SCHERR: I think you got me there, Kurt. KURT NIEBUHR: I just shorted a lot of Tesla stock with that one. ELANA SCHERR: I mean, you still lost overall, and I was sleeping. KURT NIEBUHR: So if you were sleeping at the light, does that mean that you were on autopilot? ELANA SCHERR: I wonder if it could do this in autopilot. Maybe the roll racing. KURT NIEBUHR: So what we're going to try and do is a roll race here. But we have to use the honor system which, I, frankly, don't trust either of these other people. But we're going to set our speed at about 40 miles an hour and hope I can beat an electric vehicle. I hope so. ELANA SCHERR: Was that not how you're supposed to do it? KURT NIEBUHR: That's how you're supposed to do it. That thing is electric. REESE COUNTS: That felt a lot better once I was right in the power band. KURT NIEBUHR: Holy [BLEEP]. REESE COUNTS: [BLEEP] KURT NIEBUHR: Well that thing owns the roll on, that's for sure. ELANA SCHERR: The thing is it's not very exciting. I mean, I know that I'm going fast and that part is good. But it's not, nothing shakes more or makes more noise. It's just kind of like, wooshier. KURT NIEBUHR: That wooshier noise is the sound of progress. REESE COUNTS: The BMW sounds awesome. It's just slow. ELANA SCHERR: I'm really surprised that the BMW is having so much trouble, because everything that I've read about that car had pretty stout numbers for it. REESE COUNTS: It just feels like there's a 1/2 second delay off the line. It doesn't feel like it's hooking up right in the power like I expected it to. KURT NIEBUHR: Just out of curiosity, what's your battery look like? How much range you got? ELANA SCHERR: It's right about at half now. Kurt, I think the Mercedes has the most impressive lead. I mean, if I gave you even a second, even a fraction of a second, it was like, oh, man, now I've got to chase you down. KURT NIEBUHR: Yeah, it's weird racing at night because I can't see you. So I'm looking over and I'm trying to find where you are and I think in the last quarter mile run we were so close that your headlight was in the blind spot. I kept looking over and seeing black. REESE COUNTS: Don't worry, I got a good look at both of you. KURT NIEBUHR: I will say that it is somewhat demoralizing to have the sound of a V8 engine, and then just know full well that I'm getting passed by something that's making no noise whatsoever. ELANA SCHERR: I'm sorry, I'm busy. I'm doing Adele karaoke. Hello. REESE COUNTS: You hear this? ELANA SCHERR (INTERCOM): It's this thing. REESE COUNTS: This is Elana singing karaoke from the Tesla. [MUSIC PLAYING] ELANA SCHERR: The BMW may have come up short both in the drag race and at our test track, but it posted the shortest braking distance and highest lateral g on our skid pad, giving some respect to the competition part of its name. You may be surprised to see that the Benz was quickest at our test track, even though it lost most of the drag races. How does that work? Well, the Benz's engine uses air to make power, and the heat and the high altitude where we filmed this race meant it wasn't breathing as well as it was on our test track. Combine that with real-world reaction times and this is what you get. The Tesla's immediate power delivery and all-weather consistency make for high performance both at the test track and during the commute. Man, winning feels good. Winning always feels good. But winning when your competitors should beat you, when they have turbocharged engines and they come from very famous, long-standing luxury marks with a huge history of performance, and you're just in a little start-up from California, you don't even have a gas engine, it's an EV. Yeah. Yeah, that feels really good. Tesla takes it. If you want to see more videos like this, subscribe. And follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. [MUSIC PLAYING]

Drag Race! Tesla Model Y vs. BMW X3 M vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 63

This race was a lot of fun for us. Not only for the obvious reasons (hello, fast!) but because it gave us a chance to talk about sound, exteriors, and different ways the manufacturers approach performance, such as launch control settings and drive modes.

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe vs. the competition

2020 Porsche Macan

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe vs. Porsche Macan

What the Macan lacks in "coupe" style, it makes up for with its own unique flair. The Macan's roofline slightly tapers toward the rear — nothing as dramatic as the Mercedes but enough for its own sleek, handsome and decidedly un-boxy look. Where the GLC deftly blends comfort and performance, the Macan leans toward sporty and engaging handling. You'll feel more of the road in the Macan but nothing objectionable. Both models line up well on paper, so choosing one really comes down to comfort priorities and brand preference.

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe vs. BMW X4

While the GLC Coupe offers an impressive blend of power and performance, the X4 leans more toward athleticism, with sharp and impressive handling. It, too, offers powerful performance from turbocharged four- or six-cylinder engines, but it adds an element of engagement. It isn't just a practical SUV, but it's one you'll also want to drive quickly on a curved road. Although the X4 shares most of the same downsides as the GLC — tight rear headroom, reduced cargo capacity and pricey options — it may be the right pick for drivers who like more spirited motoring.

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe vs. Jaguar F-Pace

The F-Pace offers its own take on incomparable Jaguar style, this time in an SUV configuration. But panache alone isn't quite enough to elevate it to the same level as the Benz. The interior materials are disappointing, the infotainment needlessly fussy, and the cabin noisy at highway speeds. But the F-Pace does exhibit impressive quickness and betters most of its rivals on cargo space. It even offers a diesel engine option if long-range fuel economy is a priority. It also costs less than the GLC.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe First Impressions

What is it?

Based on the standard GLC SUV, the GLC Coupe features a sloping roofline to give it a sleek and sporty profile. (It still has four doors, so Mercedes-Benz's "coupe" nomenclature is a misnomer.) In exchange, the GLC Coupe surrenders some rear-seat headroom and cargo capacity. You also give up the option of a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

The big news for the 2020 GLC Coupe is the inclusion of Mercedes' new MBUX infotainment system. We're fans of MBUX because of its ease of use, feature-rich content and multiple control options. Its voice command system, in particular, is the best in the industry.

Mercedes has also added some functions to already existing systems. The available Active Distance Assist Distronic (adaptive cruise control) now uses route-based map data to slow the vehicle ahead of turns. Furthermore, Active Lane Change Assist will automatically execute lane changes when the turn signal is activated and when sensors verify the intended lane is indeed open.

A helping hand is also present when you reach your destination thanks to the new exit-warning function. A series of alerts will let passengers know if a vehicle is approaching from behind before they open their doors into traffic.

Why does it matter?

Over the past decade or so, more and more people are moving from sedans to SUVs and crossovers. Some shoppers want the benefits of an SUV — a high seating position, more passenger space and increased cargo volume — without giving up sporty, youthful styling. Most luxury automakers are offering sleek, fastback SUVs such as the GLC Coupe. The AMG variants, the GLC 43 and GLC 63 S, also offer much of the same performance as their C-Class sedan counterparts. The 2020 model simply improves what was already one of our favorite luxury SUVs.

What does it compete with?

The most obvious competitor is the BMW X4, a coupified version of the BMW X3. Like the Mercedes, the BMW comes in both standard and performance trims, the wildest of which is the X4 M Competition. The Porsche Macan is a similarly swoopy SUV, though unlike the Mercedes or BMW, there's no official "coupe" version of the Macan. You might also consider the Jaguar F-Pace. It doesn't have the fastback roofline of the GLC, but it's no less stylish. The more traditional shape helps it beat the GLC in terms of both cargo and passenger space, too.

How does it drive?

Exactly how you would like a Mercedes to drive. It's quiet and comfortable, with a smooth powertrain that generally goes about its business without fuss. This new 2.0-liter makes 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. That's more power than last year's model, but thanks to improvements with the new engine, fuel economy has increased, too. All GLC 300 coupes come with a nine-speed automatic and Mercedes' 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. In Sport mode, the GLC moves with some verve, but in the standard Comfort setting it can feel a little sluggish off the line.

The ride quality is smooth, even when the GLC is fitted with its larger optional wheels. Bumps or imperfections in the road are well-damped, with no wallowing or swaying about. The steering is light and direct, though there's not a whole lot of feedback through the wheel.

The driver assistance features, such as adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist, are some of the best on the market. The GLC maintains a reasonable gap in traffic, and it is smooth in slowing down or speeding up to match what's going on around the vehicle. If the speed limit changes, the system will slow down or speed up to match. It's neat, useful and well-integrated. The GLC's navigation system is also a real highlight. It uses augmented reality and cameras to overlay addresses or turning directions on top of an actual video feed on the infotainment screen.

How does the AMG drive?

So far, we've only had an opportunity to drive the top-of-the-line AMG 63 S model. The twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 makes 506 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and is connected to a quick-shifting nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to help send the GLC 63 S to 60 mph from a dead stop in less than 4 seconds. That's true sports-car territory in a vehicle that can haul four people plus cargo. It sounds mean, too, with a deep, smooth exhaust note that's come to define most of AMG's top-tier models.

The GLC 63 S' talents aren't limited to just straight-line performance, either. While we're not sure how well it will hold up when pushed to its limits on a track, it's surprisingly nimble and athletic on a winding back road. Thanks to the standard air suspension, the GLC 63 corners relatively flat and hides most of its heft with grace. The brakes provide smooth, short stops, and the quick throttle response and sport-tuned 4Matic all-wheel-drive system provide ample grip to power out. The steering is surprisingly good, too, at least as far as SUVs go. It's a little numb on-center, but it's direct and weighted well.

The steering, suspension, transmission, throttle response, exhaust, and stability control can all be adjusted using various drive modes. Sport+ is the most aggressive setting, delivering quick shifts and a firm suspension tune. You can also use the buttons on the wheel and console to change various settings to be set independent of each other or preconfigured in an Individual drive mode.

Overall, the GLC 63 S is fast and as capable as it needs to be for some back-road shenanigans. If you're serious about a vehicle that can stand up to a day at the track, you might be better off in something such as the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S. But if you just want something a bit obnoxious that is sure to put a smile on your face, the GLC more than delivers.

What's the interior like?

In short, phenomenal. It's mostly carried over from the pre-refreshed model that debuted in 2016, but that's hardly a bad thing. The fit and finish is exactly what you would expect from a Mercedes-Benz product, and new upholstery and trim options improve things even further. There are a variety of wood trims available. But if that's not your thing, you can opt for aluminum or carbon-fiber accents, though the latter is only available on AMG models.

If Mercedes cut any corners compared to its more expensive offerings, we're hard-pressed to tell where it cheaped out. Unlike some of Mercedes' other more entry-level models, the GLC feels like a small Benz, not a cheap one. We're glad the carmaker is offering MBUX in more models. This system is both a huge improvement over the outgoing one and arguably the best in the class in terms of features and usability.

From the front seats forward, the GLC Coupe is identical to the standard GLC SUV. The seats are comfortable and offer plenty of adjustment using door-mounted controls. Heated and ventilated front seats are optional, as are heated seats in the rear. AMG models come standard with sport seats that feature more aggressive bolsters than those on the GLC 300. Those willing to sacrifice some comfort can option AMG Performance seats similar to those in the AMG GT R.

How practical is it?

That shapely roofline might look killer on the road, but it significantly cuts into both passenger space and cargo capacity. That said, it can still comfortably fit two adults in the rear, though it won't be quite as comfortable as the standard GLC. The real loser is cargo capacity. It's near the bottom of the class, even compared to other SUV coupes. The hatch opening is both narrower and taller than the standard model, meaning you can haul around less stuff, and the things you can carry are more difficult to put inside. That's the price you pay for style.

The front seats, though, don't lose anything in the standard model. You still have a good bit of storage in the door pockets, center console and under the armrest. There are multiple USB-C ports and an available wireless charging pad.

What else should I know?

If you don't like the shape of the GLC Coupe, the GLC SUV is basically the same vehicle with more space for both passengers and cargo for significantly less money. Unfortunately, you can't get the high-performance AMG 63 S model in the SUV, just the regular non-S AMG 63 and V6-powered AMG 43 models.

EdmundsEdmunds says

The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe was already one of our favorite luxury SUVs, and the updates for 2020 only improve things further. Competitors may offer a few things that outshine the GLC, but few, if any, put it all together in such a compelling package.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
