The GLC is a car that was a long time coming for Mercedes-Benz.
Based on the underpinnings of the hot-selling C-Class, the GLC gets the usual SUV infusion of a high-riding pumped-up wagon body and lashings of design accoutrements to add an appropriate dose of visual muscle.

Under the bonnet three variants of the SUV are powered by four-cylinder engines; the entry-level GLC 220d, GLC 250d and the GLC 250.
If you crave more capacity the 350d has a V6.
The GLC largely mimics the C-Class it's based on in terms of equipment.
It starts with a generous spread of safety kit on all models, including a 360-degree camera (it consists of four cameras – one front, one rear and one facing down from each side mirror - that provide a view around the car), nine airbags (dual front, side curtain, side airbags front and rear, and a driver's knee airbag), auto emergency braking, blind spot warning and an active bonnet that pops up to cushion a strike for pedestrians.
Even the most affordable GLC220d diesel comes loaded with electric front seats, digital radio, sat-nav, 19-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone air-conditioning, snazzy looking side steps and LED headlights with adaptive high beam.
There's also a 7.0-inch colour screen.
Mercedes also packages various options, including the Comand and Vision packs.
One area Mercedes-Benz has nailed these days is the interior ambience, and it's no different with the GLC. Borrowing its themes from the C-Class – think alloy finished circular air vents and clean, elegant lines – it builds on it with more head room.
Up front the excellent seats and easy adjustment make getting comfy a cinch.
