Overview

What's New

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class picks up more standard equipment, including automatic high beams, a USB-C adapter cable, rear USB ports, and notification of potential damage when the vehicle is parked. The GLC debuted in 2016 and received a thorough refresh for 2020.

Choosing your Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

The GLC SUV is currently offered in two trim levels: 300 and AMG 43. The 300 starts at $44,900 including destination and the AMG 43 is priced from $60,950. The GLC Coupe, which features a coupe-like roofline, comes in the same trims, priced from $53,550 and $67,550, respectively.

The V8-powered AMG 63 and AMG 63 S are not on sale as of this writing, but we expect them to arrive by midyear.

Engine Choices

The GLC 300 is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder, while the AMG 43 runs with a twin-turbo V6.

All-wheel drive is optional ($2,000) on the 300 SUV and standard on the AMG 43 SUV and both Coupe models. Both engines use a nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder255 hp273 lb-ft24 mpg
3.0L Twin-Turbo V6385 hp384 lb-ft21 mpg

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The GLC is a compact crossover with ample room for five. The SUV body style offers more rear headroom and space for cargo. Buyers get 19.4 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seat and 56.5 cubic feet with it folded, which is typical for a luxury crossover this size. The Coupe holds 17.6 cubic feet with the rear seat up and 49.4 cubic feet with it folded.

Safety Features

Every GLC gets a nice bundle of driver assistance features, including blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, driver attention monitoring, front collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking, and an automated parking system.

The $1,700 Driver Assistance Package tacks on adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, evasive steering assist, speed limit assist, and rear collision mitigation. You can top off the safety fest with a surround camera ($600) and a head-up display ($1,100).

Connectivity

The GLC starts off with a 10.25-inch touchscreen with a touchpad controller, eight speakers, four USB-C ports, HD radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Satellite radio with a six-month SiriusXM trial is part of the $700 Premium Package. Navigation can be added for $1,300.

The sole audio upgrade is a 13-speaker Burmester surround-sound system for $850. Gestures controls for the touchscreen cost $250, and wireless device charging is available for $200.

GLC 300 — MSRP From $44,900

The 300 provides plenty of equipment to justify its price, including heated front seats, a 10-way power driver seat and eight-way power passenger seat, driver memory settings, a power-adjustable steering wheel, wood interior trim, power-folding side mirrors, a power liftgate, and 18-inch alloy wheels (19-inch for Coupe). Seats are clad in leatherette, and genuine leather upholstery is available for $1,620. Comfort upgrades include ventilated front seats ($450), heated rear seats ($580), a heated steering wheel ($250), and passenger seat memory ($350).

Besides satellite radio, the $700 Premium Package adds ambient interior lighting and a hands-free power liftgate. Buyers can also select a panoramic sunroof ($1,500), a 12.3-inch digital instrument display ($750), and acoustic front side glass ($150).

The AMG Line Package ($1,950) equips the 300 with sporty AMG-spec trim throughout, plus upgraded brakes and 19-inch AMG wheels. AMG Line with Night Package ($2,350) also furnishes gloss black exterior accents. These packages cost $750 more on the Coupe because they include 20-inch wheels.

GLC AMG 43 — From $60,950

The AMG 43 carries the twin-turbo V6, a sport-tuned suspension, and the contents of the AMG Line Package. The sunroof, digital instrumentation, and Premium Package are also standard. The $1,950 Performance Studio Package converts nearly all exterior trim to gloss black. Other options and equipment are shared with the 300.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class comes at buyers with a reasonable base price but can get expensive in a hurry. We recommend sticking with the lower-priced SUV body style so you can add what you want without worrying too much about the cost.

Now With More Power. The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and GLC-Class Coupe are nearly identical to one another except in one way: the range-topping AMG 63 S was reserved for the coupe body style. That changes for 2022, as Mercedes now offers the GLC 63 S in both SUV and coupe variants. In total, the GLC is now available with five different engines, meaning there’s a choice out there for everyone.

The GLC 300 starts out with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower. It’s not a powerhouse of an engine, but it’s an ample amount of power for most people. It’s quick enough and has enough juice to overtake on the highway.

But for consumers that want some extra grunt, the AMG models are the way to go. The AMG lineup starts off with the AMG 43, which comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. It produces 385 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. It’s a large boost over the standard engine and has more than enough power to satisfy most shoppers’ needs.

Of course, AMG is known for its V8 engines and the GLC has an excellent V8 in two states of tune. The AMG 63 and AMG 63 S models come with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that starts off with 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque and goes up to 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The AMG 63 S models can get to 60 mph in a blistering 3.6 seconds.

If your budget is large enough for the AMG 63 S models, there’s nothing quite like having sports car performance in a compact SUV.

Swanky, High-End Interior. Mercedes has some of the best interiors in the industry. While the GLC’s cabin isn’t as nice as the interiors in the E-Class or GLS-Class, it still has an upscale look and feel. With premium materials, a quiet cabin, and a design that fits in with the luxury segment, the GLC feels like it’s worth every penny of its starting price.

The seats in the GLC are supportive and comfortable with a wide range of adjustments for those sitting in the front. In the back, the GLC offers a good amount of interior space as long as you get the regular SUV body style. Opt for the sportier coupe and the amount of space in the back shrinks considerably. The GLC Coupe’s rear seats feel cramped because of the roofline.

While the GLC’s interior impresses, the compact SUV’s cargo space is below average for the segment. The SUV body style offers up to 56.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the coupe’s cargo area being able to hold up to 49.4 cubic feet of cargo space. Unless you’re in love with the GLC Coupe’s design, we recommend avoiding the model because of its cramped rear seats and small cargo area.

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Ride Comfort Takes Priority. First and foremost, the GLC is a comfortable compact SUV with a smooth ride. Even over rough roads, the GLC’s ride remains compliant. The SUV’s suspension absorbs bumps and hides passengers from cracks and smaller road imperfections. For a compact SUV, the GLC impresses with its refined ride.

Even the sporty AMG models have a comfortable ride that makes them perfectly fine for daily use. Mercedes fits the AMG-badged GLCs with adaptive air suspension that gives drivers the ability to choose between having a firm ride or a buttery smooth one.

Great List Of Tech. The GLC may have come out in 2016, but the compact SUV has been updated over the years to have the automaker’s latest technology. Every GLC comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, as well as front and rear USB ports. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is also included as standard equipment. Mercedes offers the GLC with some impressive optional tech features. Augmented-reality navigation, a 13-speaker Burmester audio system, a wireless charging pad, a head-up display, and gesture control.

When it comes to safety, the GLC offers an impressive roster of standard equipment. Despite the lengthy list of standard features, we still recommend springing for a few packages, as they bring equipment that’s worth having.

The GLC comes standard with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, driver attention monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic parking assist, safe exit assist, and automatic high-beam assist. Optional safety features include traffic sign recognition, a surround-view camera, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic lane changing, front cross-traffic alert, lane centering assist, evasive steering assist, and more.

Final Thoughts. In the packed compact class, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC and GLC Coupe have a lot to offer to consumers, even in their base guises. With the standard engine, the GLC and GLC Coupe put luxury, comfort, and tech over everything else, while the AMG models bring some serious firepower to the party. They’re the ones to have, though they require a lot more money over the base trims.

The BMW X3 is the natural competitor to the GLC. It has similarly powerful engines, comparable tech features, and an interior with a similar amount of space. The X3 has slightly sharper handling.

The Porsche Macan is hardly a versatile compact SUV, as it has cramped rear seats and a small cargo area, but it delivers athletic handling that mirrors a sports car. It’s also available with powerful engines.
