NYT: New Mercedes-Benz GLC300 Tops Peers in Midsize Crossover Category

April 5th, 2016 by

GLCThe new Mercedes-Benz GLC300 offers a bit more refinement than its GLK predecessor. This midsize crossover SUV looks and feels slimmer and more athletic, says auto writer Tom Voelk in The New York Times, despite being 4.6 inches longer and two inches wider, thanks to more aluminum in the body panels, suspension components, and subframe pieces.

The GLC delivers solid acceleration with little turbo lag. Reaching 60 miles an hour takes a quick 6.5 seconds. There’s a real polish to the driving dynamics, says Voelk, which feel like an honest-to-goodness Mercedes. Hushed at speed, the ride quality is smooth and comfortable.

Running with all-wheel drive, the GLC300 is rated at 21 miles per gallon in the city, 28 highway. On average, that’s about 4 m.p.g. better than the outgoing GLK.
