The GLC300 is a beautiful SUV inside and out. The interior is simple gorgeous with quality materials. I've shuttled 5 adults in the car comfortably with a smaller adult in the center back. Living in Colorado, the GLC has been up in the mountains numerous time including snowy roads over 12,000 ft elevation through the route 70 Eisenhower tunnel. Performance from the paired 9-speed trans with the turbo 2.0 engine is outstanding. Based the E-Class chassis, it is described as the most affordable E-Class you can buy. The GLC handles very, very well providing a civilized ride. I've had numerous sports cars including a track car and the GLC is a very satisfying car to drive through twisty mountain road or on the highway. I've been very surprised by the mileage and regularly see it over 30mpg. It is rated to be 28mpg/hwy. I simply love my time spent driving this SUV. Well done MB, it is a winner!
This is vehicle going to raise the bar for this segment. The interior is beautiful. Quality of build is impressive. MB did a great job with the redesign on the interior and makes you feel like you're not longer sitting inside a dated luxury car that your dentist would drive. Overall impressive performance. The drive modes, the handling, all of it feels more like a car than an SUV.
I bought the vehicle with the top premium package and parking assist - glad I did! Lots of convenience features but most important is the overall safety of the vehicle. Sure, it is more expensive than similar sized vehicles but the fit and finish plus the engineering are well worth the extra cost.
I love this car. I wanted a car that would give me an elevated view of the road , as I am only 5'1 1/2". I have no trouble reaching all the controls. And there are several ways to control all the features, so once I figured out which were more convenient for me to use , the operation became smooth and easy (learning curve two days, and I'm older, and not a techie). The drivers seat is extremely comfortable. So buy it and enjoy it.
This is the first Mercedes I have owned. The car is amazing with the details that MB though of building a car that is cheaper that the Honda Pilot fully loaded. This car has a lot of engineering safety, engineering comfort, and mechanical devices that simply say, please dive me and enjoy the ride you earned it. I went with the 4matic, sun roof in Jupiter red, beautiful color :) I don't know what material is used on the steering wheel but its soooo soft and I love the heated steering wheel too. The engineered has a 4 cylinder with a turbo which pushes 220 HP it accelerates at a amazing torque, love it. You can definitely see the German engineering under the hood. When sitting in the drivers seat, you look around, it looks like you have this amazing car that WRAPS YOU around and ready for take off, it amazing. I could go on and on about this car. Mercedes has done a spectacularly job to design a car that can be purchased for 43K, same price a the fully loaded Honda pilot. I have owned 6 Honda's but German Engineering kicks butt!!!! Sorry Honda you have a lot of work to catch up to this amazing CLA 300.
