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.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class OVERVIEW

The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class isn't your typical luxury SUV. Two body styles are offered, including a traditional SUV and a Coupe design. The GLC excels in comfort, quality, and safety, but fuel economy is its weakest link.

What's New for 2019

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class returns with only minor changes.

Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

The standard engine for the GLC 300 is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The SUV comes with standard rear-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive (4MATIC, in Mercedes-Benz parlance). The coupe is all-wheel drive only. In both cases, power is sent to the wheels with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The GLC 350e adds an electric motor to the base engine to form a plug-in hybrid. This one comes with a seven-speed automatic transmission, but the net gain in fuel economy is minuscule. The four-cylinder achieves an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 24 combined, while the GLC 350e gets 25 mpg combined when it's running on gasoline.

As for the AMG GLC 43, this all-wheel-drive model comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine making 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. The AMG GLC 63 is the performance master of the class, making 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine. But that’s not all – if you choose the AMG GLC 63 S variant, power mushrooms to 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. All AMG GLC 63 models come with a limited-slip differential, although the in the GLC 63s it's electronically controlled for faster performance transfer.

The GLC-Class seats up to five. It has top-notch crash scores and comes with a full suite of power features. Every model also has Bluetooth with audio streaming. To get features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you’ll pay $350 for what’s included on many mainstream models. Go figure.

Mercedes-Benz always offers multiple package options across its model line. The GLC-Class is no exception. These packages cover lighting, multimedia, driver assistance, leather seating, and an AMG Line. You may find a slight variation in package offerings and price between the two body styles. Our examples cover the SUV.

GLC300

Starting at $41,695 for the SUV (all prices include the $995 destination charge), or $48,295 for the Coupe, the GLC 300 kicks things off for this model line. Standard features include LED lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, and a power liftgate. Inside, there's a power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, imitation leather seats, wood trim, a seven-inch color display, a premium audio system, and navigation.

Options include an AMG Line Package ($1,600) that adds AMG body styling, 19-inch AMG wheels, a sport brake system, AMG Line interior, sport steering wheel, brushed aluminum pedals. You’ll also find a Night Package ($1,900), which requires the AMG Line first, that brings gloss black exterior accents, 19-inch AMG wheels with black accents and black roof rails. The Exterior Lighting Package ($1,650) includes active LED headlights and adaptive high beam assist. The Premium Package ($1,250) adds blind-spot monitoring, keyless entry, and satellite radio, while the Multimedia Package ($2,200) brings an 8.4-inch screen with navigation, a touchpad controller, an in-dash DVD/CD player, and voice control. The Driver Assistance Package ($2,250) includes blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, speed limit assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control, while the Parking Assistance Package ($1,290) adds a hands-free liftgate, a surround-view camera system, and park assist.

GLC 350e

Only available in SUV form with four-wheel drive, the GLC 350e builds on the base model and starts at $50,985. Net system performance comes in at 320 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque thanks to the addition of an 85-kilowatt electric motor. This model has a 21-mile all-electric range. The AMG Line, Night, Multimedia, Advanced Parking Assist, and Driver Assistance Packages return unchanged, while the Premium Package only costs $800. The Advanced Lighting Package ($800) adds LED headlights and adaptive highbeam assist, while the Air Balance package ($350) brings a cabin fragrance and air purification system.

AMG GLC 43

Priced from $57,245 ($61,395 for the coupe), the AMG GLC 43 is the first of two performance models under the GLC-Class umbrella. Besides the strong powertrain, this model benefits from 20-inch wheels, a power sunroof, keyless entry with push-button start, upgraded upholstery, and satellite radio. The Advanced Lighting Package costs $1,900 here because it includes AMG-illuminated front door sills, while the Multimedia, Air Balance, Driver Assistance, and Advanced Parking Assist Package are available unchanged.

AMG GLC 63

Costing $70,895 ($74,145 for the coupe), the AMG GLC 63 is the ultimate mid-size performance utility vehicle, with a zero-to-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds. Its handcrafted twin-turbocharged V8 engine is its calling card. A sport suspension system, performance brakes, and enhanced driving dynamics are its other attributes. Choose the GLC 63 S ($81,745 and available only with the Coupe) and you’ll enjoy the ultimate in performance. Package options mirror those found on the AMG GLC 43, though the Advanced Lighting Package is only $1,050.

CarsDirect Tip

If you’re shopping for a mid-size luxury SUV with acceptable performance, the GLC 300 gets it done from the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. The Coupe version encroaches on head room and reduces storage space, so it isn’t ideal for carrying five adults, while the hybrid doesn’t yield the efficiencies to justify consideration.
