What's New in the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300?

The GLC is fully redesigned for 2016 to replace the GLK. It offers a new design, new features, new powertrains and a new interior, sharing virtually nothing with the GLK except its sizing and the "GL" at the start of its name. See the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class models for sale near you

Which GLC 300 is the Best?

Since there's only one GLC to get, we'd go with that one -- and we'd add several packages full of safety and luxury features. If you don't need a third row, this is one of the best small luxury SUVs you can buy today. Find a Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class for sale


How Much Does a 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 Cost?

With no additional engine variants, the GLC300 ($39,900) offers only one version. It comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, a power driver's seat, a 7-in display screen with Mercedes' COMAND infotainment system, forward-collision warning with automatic braking, dual-zone automatic climate control, Mercedes' synthetic MB-Tex leather upholstery, a backup camera, two USB ports, an iPod interface and Bluetooth phone and audio control.

Options include the Sport package (sporty styling and 19-in wheels), the Night package (black wheels and exterior accents), the Lighting package (automatic high beams and LED headlights), the Advanced Parking Assist package (a 360-degree camera system, an automated parking system, a hands-free lift gate and parking sensors), the Premium package (a blind spot monitoring system, heated front seats and keyless ignition with push-button starting) and the Interior package (full leather upholstery, a power passenger seat and ventilated seats). Other options include an 8.4-in infotainment screen, 20-in wheels, a panoramic sunroof, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Is the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 a Safe Car?

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class has not yet been crash-tested by the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. We have high hopes, though, as the GLC comes standard with an impressive array of safety equipment, including anti-lock brakes, forward-collision warning with automatic braking, side airbags and side-curtain airbags. Options include a blind spot monitoring system, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist and a new feature dubbed forward cross-traffic prevention with automatic braking.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 vs the competition

2017 Acura RDX -- Although Acura's brand name might not quite live up to that of Mercedes, the RDX is an excellent choice in this segment thanks to a standard 3.5-liter V6, a lot of high-tech options and features, and reasonable pricing.

2016 BMW X3 -- The X3 is the GLC's closest competitor, touting similar pricing and a similar high-end image. It's a little sportier than the Mercedes, but we prefer the GLC's overall driving experience to the BMW's.

2016 Lexus NX -- Aimed at drivers who prioritize luxury over performance, the NX offers a lackluster 4-cylinder model and a fuel-efficient hybrid. But it also touts notorious Lexus build quality and bold, head-turning styling.

Used Mercedes-Benz M-Class -- If you like the GLC but need a little more space, you may want to consider Mercedes' larger M-Class, now renamed the GLE for 2016. Pricing is steep, though -- a GLE starts around $10,000 more than the GLC -- so you may want to consider a used or certified pre-owned model.
