Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 OVERVIEW

The senior compact crossover from Mercedes-Benz, the new GLC300 promises more room, luxury and style than its boxy GLK predecessor. While it may not look as rugged as that model, the GLC300 appeals to a far broader swath of buyers shopping in this league.

What's New for 2016

The GLC300 is an all-new model.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz GLC300

Mercedes-Benz GLC300 Interior

The GLC is based on the recently redesigned C-Class sedan and shares most of its features and mechanical underpinnings. Power comes from a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder good for 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission does the shifting, and all-wheel drive is available in place of the standard rear-drive setup. Diesel and hybrid powerplants are expected later in the model year.

Interior room has grown in almost every dimension over the outgoing GLK, even though the GLC300 is lighter by about 175 pounds. It's still a compact crossover, but now dwells on the larger end of its class.

The five-passenger interior features MB-Tex (leatherette) upholstery, power front seats with driver memory, a power-folding rear seat, wood trim, and a six-speaker sound system with HD radio and Bluetooth audio. Standard conveniences include power-folding side mirrors, a power liftgate, and push-button ignition. For safety, you get a driver alertness monitor, front collision warning, and crosswind assist. The GLC starts out with 18-inch wheels, and you can upgrade to 19s or 20s.

The popular Premium package tacks on blind spot monitoring, satellite radio, heated front seats, keyless access, and a household-style power outlet. Premium-equipped model are eligible for an Interior package with leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, ambient lighting, illuminated door sills, and a cargo organization package. You can keep things smelling fresh with the Air Balance package, an air purification system with selectable scents.

The Multimedia package provides a hard drive-based navigation system with real-time traffic and weather. Safety is the theme of the Driver Assistance package, which includes a surround-view camera system, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with steering assist, collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection, and a hands-free power tailgate.

You can dress up the GLC further with individual options like a head-up display, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and a premium Burmester surround-sound system. Exclusive to this class is the available adaptive air suspension known as Air Body Control.

CarsDirect Tip

All-wheel drive (4MATIC) adds just $2,000, which makes it a no-brainer on this type of vehicle. We feel the same way about the Premium and Interior packages, which have a major impact on luxury for a reasonable $2,570 when purchased together.
