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

  • 2021 GLC-Class is available
  • Rebates: Up to $2,000 off (2020)
  • Lease: $469/mo. (2020)
  • Finance: 0% for 36 mo. (2021)

New offers:

The 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.

The carryover 2020 GLC-Class is in showrooms now, but it's nearly sold out. It gets a more attractive lease offer and a new cash offer. If you want the sportier GLC Coupe, keep in mind that most promotional offers aren't available on it.

The 2021 GLC-Class is also in stock, and it gets a new 0% financing deal, lease, and more.

These offers on the GLC-Class are available nationwide and expire on November 30, 2020. We expect no new offers on the GLC-Class for Black Friday.

New cash offers:

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

The 2020 GLC-Class' base unadvertised dealer cash incentive remains at $1,000. Buyers looking for a little extra power can opt for the AMG GLC43 or AMG GLC43 Coupe, which push the unadvertised dealer incentive to $2,000 and $1,500, respectively.

The 2021 GLC-Class has a $500 unadvertised dealer cash incentive on all models except the coupe.

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

Lease from $469/mo.:

The 2020 GLC-Class' 36-month lease on the GLC300 Premium runs $469 per month with $4,363 due at signing. With an effective monthly cost of $590, this isn't a good value relative to its MSRP.

Buyers who prefer the GLC-Class Coupe can get the 2020 GLC300 4MATIC Coupe on a 36-month lease for $619 per month with $4,913 due at signing. With a $755 effective monthly cost, this is a terrible value relative to its MSRP.

The 2021 GLC-Class gets two new 36-month lease offers that start from $469 per month with $4,363 due at signing on the GLC300 Premium. The 2021 GLC300 4MATIC Coupe pushes the lease cost to $639 per month with $4,603 due at signing.

With effective monthly costs of $590-$767, neither 2021 GLC-Class lease offer is a good value relative to its MSRP.

Lowered APR:

The 2020 GLC-Class continues with 1.99% APR, but its terms is cut in half to 36 months.

The better financing offer is on the 2021 GLC-Class, which gets 0% APR for 36 months.

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class arrived in 2016 as a replacement for the GLK-Class. New name or not, the GLC-Class has continued to revolutionize the industry in its first generation with a wild coupe variant, gobs of performance, and a cloud-like ride. In 2020, this compact crossover saw a few tech, trim, and powertrain updates, but it remains virtually the same rig that debuted in 2016. We expect the 2021 GLC-Class to continue this carryover trend.

The 2021 GLC-Class will be no spring chicken, as it’ll mark the sixth model year for this design. That said, it still looks good, especially in its coupe variant. With these looks still relevant, we expect no changes, so it’ll likely roll in with the same styling, including an assortment of grille options, buttery-smooth body lines, and rounded headlights. Buyers will also continue to have the opportunity to sport up the GLC-Class with AMG variants.

Inside, the current GLC-Class has an older interior design, but it still boasts a blend of sportiness and luxury with its circular air vents, dash-top infotainment screen, clean center stack, and thick-rimmed steering wheel. It does, however, lack the more pronounced air vents, dual-LCD screen setup, and bold dash design of newer models like the CLA-Class and A-Class. We expect this older interior design to remain when the 2021 GLC-Class arrives.


Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Under its hood, we expect the 2021 GLC-Class to continue with the same array of powertrain options that range from mild to wild. This lineup will start with the GLC300 and its 255-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Buyers seeking more performance can slip in the AMG GLC63 or GLC63 S, which each use different tunes of the same twin-turbo V8 to produce 469 and 503 hp, respectively.

The IIHS has tossed the 2020 GLC-Class into a few walls, giving it “Good” scores in each crash test, but testing is still incomplete. Every GLC-Class comes standard with automatic emergency braking, and buyers can opt for other advanced nannies like active lane control, blind-spot monitors, a surround-view camera system, and adaptive cruise control. We expect the safety features and ratings to remain the same in the 2021 GLC-Class.

This compact luxury crossover will compete with the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Lincoln Corsair.
