Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

What you must know before buying the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Automotive Editor - November 6, 2019
  • 2020 GLC-Class is here
  • $1,500 unadvertised incentive (2019)
  • Lease: $419/mo. + payment credit (2019)
  • Finance: 1.99% APR + payment credit (2019)

2020 GLC-Class is here:

The carryover 2019 GLC-Class is a hot seller, but you should be able to find or order one to fit your needs. Be prepared for higher prices due to its demand.

There are all sorts of new offers for the 2019 GLC-Class, including updated unadvertised incentives and low APR offers. Keep in mind that all GLC-Class offers listed here exclude the GLC-Class.

The 2020 GLC-Class is in showrooms now, but it is a carryover model. Its deals are not as attractive as the 2019 GLC-Class' offers, but they do improve in November.

These offers on the GLC-Class are available nationwide and expire on December 2, 2019. We expect no new offers for Black Friday.

Unadvertised discounts remain:

Many automakers offer big discounts up front, but Mercedes takes a different approach by giving dealerships unadvertised incentives to use as they please.

The 2019 GLC-Class' unadvertised incentive is worth up to $1,500, and buyers can combine it with the low-APR financing from Mercedes below.

The 2020 GLC-Class has an unadvertised incentive too, but it is less significant at $1,000 ($500 increase). Unlike the 2019 GLC-Class, the 2020 model's unadvertised incentive, there is no low APR offer to combine it with.

The dealer can either pass these incentives on to the buyer or keep them for itself to increase margins. Because of this uncertainty, shop around for the best deal.

Lease from $419/mo.:

The 2019 GLC300 Premium starts from $419 per month with $4,213 due at signing. On top of this offer, Mercedes will also cover the first lease payment up to $600.

With an effective monthly cost of $536 on the 2019 GLC-Class, these are not good values relative to their respective MSRPs.

The 2020 GLC-Class gets an updated base promotional lease offer in November. This 36-month lease runs $439 per month ($30 reduction) with $4,533 due at signing ($30 reduction). With an effective monthly cost of $565 ($31 reduction), this is not a good value relative to its MSRP.

Finance from 1.99%:

In November, Mercedes replaces the 2019 GLC-Class' progressive financing terms -- 1.99% APR for up to 36 months, 2.99% for up to 60 months, and 3.99% for 72 months -- with 1.99% APR for 72 months. They can also combine these offers with the $1,500 unadvertised incentive above.

To further increase demand for financing, Mercedes will cover up to $600 of the first month's payment.

These deals require financing through Mercedes Benz Financial Services to qualify.

There are no financing offers on the 2020 GLC-Class.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - March 1, 2019

Model Preview

The Mercedes GLC-Class only just debuted back in 2016, but it will already get a redesign when the 2020 GLC-Class arrives in showrooms. Granted, it will be about as about as mild a redesign can be, but Mercedes calls it a redesign nonetheless.

On the outside, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class will boast the same basic silhouette as the current model, but there will be plenty of other design updates to take in. Up front, Mercedes will add a new two-bar grille with a more rounded outline and a diamond lattice.

The front end will also gain redesigned LED headlights, torch-design fog lights, and an all-new bumper. Around back, all-new taillights with new squared-off lighting inserts widen it visually while a thinner rear bumper with a new lower insert and exhaust outlets finish off the restyle.

Inside, the redesign will require an even more powerful microscope to find all the updates. The most obvious of the updates will be the two new steering wheel options with more distinct post designs and flat bottoms. Buyers will also find two new Natural Grain Grey Oak and Natural Grain Walnut trim options for the center console and the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system. The latter will allow human interaction with the infotainment system via more common voice commands, gestures, the Touch Control Buttons on the steering wheel, the central touchpad, and the touchscreen.

Under its hood, the GLC300 model will get a small bump in power to 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque — a 14 hp bump. This power will route through a carryover nine-speed automatic transmission and out to the rear wheels as standard or all four wheels with optional 4MATIC. On top of being more powerful, this new M264 engine will be easier on fuel than the M274 unit it will replace, but Mercedes has not announced its official fuel economy numbers.

The current GLC-Class is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and the 2020 GLC-Class will arrive with all the same safety features but with a few tweaks to some of the systems. The optional Driver Assistance Package will continue to offer adaptive cruise control, but it will gain the ability to brake for stationary vehicles and will have an expanded automatic restarting feature in traffic jams. This system will also gain Route-Based Speed Adaptation that reduces the cruise control speed based on the surroundings, like when approaching a sharp corner or a toll booth.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Active Steering Assist will also remain in the Driver Assistance Package, but this system will stop the vehicle, unlock the doors, and contact emergency services if the driver is unresponsive after the system activates. Active Steering Assist will gain active lane changing and active speed limit assistance. Barring a large structural setback in the redesign, we expect a repeat Top Safety Pick+ performance.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no concrete release date for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, but it will be in showrooms in late-2019.

Pricing also remains uncertain, but we expect a small increase over the current model’s MSRP range of $41,695 to $82,795 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class will compete with the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Jaguar F-Pace.
