The GLC300 4Matic is labeled "coupe" to suggest its reduced flight, sportiness, and slim roofline compared to larger SUVs. This GLC family member is the design line the business presented in 2016 as a method in order to help complete the spots left about the departing GLK, a boxy compact SUV. Now, the family members contain the brand-new GLC SUV correct, the GLC300 Coupe, and the higher-performing AMG GLC43 Coupe.
The "coupe" SUV section is the most up to date effort to profit from the wild success of deluxe crossovers. When automakers like Porsche, Mercedes, and also BMW (they call their own the "Sports Activity Coupe") begin making four-door SUV- and also crossover-style sports cars, it means they have actually obtained a great deal of market area to play with. Therefore far, they're doing it right.
The GLC300 4Matic (4Matic is the badge that designates all-wheel-drive lorries at Mercedes) comes standard with a 2.0 inline-four turbo engine that gets 241 horsepower and also 273 pound-feet of torque, which is ample to shoot the GLC ahead thrillingly the moment you punch the gas-- the auto weighs a fairly light 4,133 extra pounds, nevertheless. Mercedes's engineers have actually improved the power-to-weight proportion far better than nearly any individual. Yes, the GLC300 4Matic is called a coupe and isn't, in the typical feeling of the word. However it seems like one-- the means it relocates, rises, strikes-- when you drive it.
PriceThe GLC300 4Matic prices $45,950. The options on the cars and truck I drove pressed its price tag to $63,505. Both figures, to my mind, are reasonable. What's more, the AMG GLC43 Coupe sets you back $59,650. And straight rivals to the GLC coupe cost more (X6, $61,400; Porsche Macan, $47,500; Macan GTS, $67,200). Big cars, a possible alternative, are costlier too.
Actually, this the real attraction of this weird SUV-coupe section-- it has no genuine distinct logic or raison d'etre, which somehow releases it to be distinct, fantastically, entirely itself. (Similar to the others I pointed out in this sector.) The price comes to be rather of a moot point in your decision making.

The GLC300 has 9-- count them, 9-- rates. This is rather a task, taking into consideration that its rival, the exceptional BMW X6, has 8 of them and numerous deluxe autos have 6 or 7. Those 9 gears, plus the laser-precise steering and also optional "Air Body Control" air suspension, for $1,800, reward the most requiring driver. Riding in the GLC300 Coupe is like running your hand across a trendy marble table. So smooth.
