The Top Gear car review: Mercedes-Benz GLC
Final thoughts and pick of the range
The regular GLC isn’t a memorable car, but it covers the bases needed in its class well. It’s a handsome, well-appointed, easy-to-drive car that doesn’t demand a sporting attack-attack mentality from its driver. Refinement is pleasing. The new engines are smoother. It won’t break the bank to run.
All of this makes the GLC a likeable car, and a strong one to recommend, if not dripping with must-have Evoque-like desirability. We’d wager the GLC will be far less frustrating to live with than the mini-Rangie, mind, and thanks to its vast range, there’s more likely a model to suit your exact needs than there is among the ranks of say, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio or Porsche Macan, which are both fine driving cars with freakish B-road ability, but don’t come as highly equipped, and don’t cosset the miles away as effectively.
The update’s infotainment complexity is a bugbear, but not one that keeps the GLC from being among TG’s favourite mid-sized posh SUVs.
