Quick Look

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class should be noted as the replacement for the GLK-Class, as it carries over some styling elements but more or less boasts much of the same design and features. The new class includes many handsome modifications to the vehicle’s exterior profile, as well as a majorly updated interior cabin that allows for increased space and better technical gadgets for the modern family. Such highlights include the COMAND infotainment system and a super nifty Attention Assist safety feature that keeps you from driving while drowsy. The current model’s powertrain is slightly under par, however, resting at a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Nonetheless, this vehicle is definitely engineered for everyday household driving, providing drivers with space, comfort and assistance through and through. 




Full Review

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is smartly designed on the inside and out, featuring an attractive outer body and a lush interior cabin for your ultimate convenience. This class is revamped as a replacement for the GLK-Class and deservingly takes over by providing some serious style and comfort. High quality materials are evidenced throughout, but this is to be expected from the luxury brand, making it one lavish ride complete with tons of technical gadgetry. There’s also a decently powerful engine under the hood to tow this large vehicle. Altogether, the GLC-Class features all-around refinement and elegance.

The new GLC-Class sports a revamped exterior profile to go with the name change, now featuring a more handsome take on Mercedes’ design language. The outer profile is graceful and flowing with rounded contours and sharp creases over the hood and side body, creating a seriously attractive presence on the road. With slightly swept-back headlights and a rectangular two-slat grille adorning the front end, this vehicle is noticeably simplistic and sophisticated, which is not unknown to the brand. In fact, Mercedes does this design very well, as is displayed in the new class.

This year’s upgrade brings minor modifications to the vehicle’s interior, which now highlights improved materials that line the vehicle’s seats, door panels and dashboard. Notably integrating leather, wood and aluminum on most surfaces, this cabin is clearly upscale. As such, the GLC-Class is now more spacious due to a longer wheelbase, which results in extra 2.2 inches of space for second-row passengers. There is also a cool blue accent lighting running across the dash and door panels, making this interior feel incredibly modern and youthful. The center stack likewise features a wide, curving design that extends down to the interface controller on the console.

This experience is only enhanced by an abundance of technological capability afforded to occupants, such as now standard dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and a panoramic sunroof. The updated multimedia system is of more importance, however, which is now displayed on a seven-inch floating above the center stack. The COMAND system effectively bundles navigation capability, Bluetooth, satellite radio and smartphone connectivity, among a variety of other features.

Performance wise, the 2016 GLC-Class carries over the same engine from the discontinued GLK-Class, hosting a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood. This unit produces 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque while running on the new 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission with 4MATIC or real-wheel drive. The all-wheel drivetrain is notably rated at 12.3 litres per 100 kilometres city and 9.7 litres per 100 kilometres highway.

A main highlight within the safety realm of this car is the Collision Prevention Assist Plus system which utilizes automatic braking when sensing an imminent collision. Another key provision is the Attention Assist drowsiness monitor, which triggers an audible warning and display message when the system notices erratic steering. Equally important, however, is the multi-view camera system that displays a 360-degree view of the car’s surroundings.

Overall, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is a great all-around vehicle with outward style and interior comforts as its main assets. If you’re looking for a luxury vehicle that’s great for the family, look no further than this crossover.

Power and Performance:

For 2016, there are essentially just two versions of the GLC-Class, performance-wise: the rear-wheel-drive GLC300, and the all-wheel-drive GLC300 4Matic. Both pack a 2.0-liter turbocharged, direct-injection four-cylinder engine, making 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. In both versions it’s mated to a new 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission.

Interiors and Special Features:

After all, the interior is much the same as you'll find the C-Class, from the large round vents to the iPad-plastered-on-the-dash COMAND display to the surprisingly fine and well-fit controls and up-scale materials, like satin-finished open-pore wood. As much as I love  Mercedes' latest generation of interior design and materials (and I do), the GLC's implementation is, if anything, a touch cartoonish. But aside from some of the broader gestures on the dash, it's a remarkably classy cabin, as good as or better than anything in the class. It's also very easy to see out of, even easier to park, and surprisingly nimble even in cramped medieval Alsatian villages.

Safety features:

The 2016 GLC300 models will come standard Attention Asisst, which helps identify drowsy driving and gives the driver a warning; it also includes the new Collision Prevention Assist Plus (CPA+) system, one that may come in very handy at moments of inattention. When the speed differential of a vehicle ahead (or object) is less than about 30 mph, the system can automatically brake—first with about 60 percent effort, then fully at later stages—to reach a full stop and avert a collision; and for speed differentials more than that, the system can help reduce the severity of a collision. Outward visibility is actually quite good in the GLC; and while rearward visibility when parking or backing up is the only exception, the camera system is very helpful and combines views into one seamless visualization around to both sides.
