Which GLC 300 is the Best?

For this style of vehicle, the GLC-Class Coupe hits all the right notes. It depends on budget and preference whether to go with the 300 or the 43. But make a point of stretching to the driver-assistance features.

How Much Does a 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 Cost?

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe is a 5-seater that comes in GLC 300 4Matic form, or as the sportier Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 version.

The GLC 300 4Matic Coupe ($46,875) has 18-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof, full LED exterior lighting, keyless entry/ignition, a 14-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory settings, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding side mirrors, power-folding rear seats, a powered tailgate, roof rails, a 7-inch display screen for the Comand infotainment system, forward-collision warning with automatic braking, dual-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather upholstery, drive-mode settings, a rearview camera, an 8-speaker audio system, two USB ports, an iPod interface, and Bluetooth phone and audio streaming.

Options include the Premium 1 package, featuring blind spot monitoring, heated front seats, satellite radio and a 115-volt outlet. Premium 2 adds an 8.4-in infotainment screen and voice-controlled navigation. Premium 3 brings advanced safety aids and an air purifier. A Sport package means 19-in alloy wheels, sporty cosmetic touches and stronger brakes. A Night package adds black wheels and exterior accents. And an Active Parking Assist package brings a 360-degree camera system, automated parking, hands-free tailgate operation and parking sensors at both ends.

Other options include an air suspension, leather upholstery, heated/ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, a Burmester 14-speaker audio system upgrade (as found in the S-Class), 20-in alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, a head-up display, a heated steering wheel, Wi-Fi and an illuminated grille badge.

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe ($60,575) comes with an adaptive air suspension, 20-in AMG-designed alloy wheels, various cosmetic touches inside and out and the contents of the Premium 1 package.

Mercedes-Benz does not quote cargo space for the GLC Coupe. Even if we assume most buyers don't care too much about this aspect, they might still find the high lip (just above the rear bumper) to be an inconvenience.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 vs the competition

2017 BMW X4 -- The GLC Coupe's closest competitor, with similar pricing and a similar high-end image.

2017 Jaguar F-PACE -- Sleek, handsome, dynamic in its own ways and spacious. The cabin's quality lets the side down somewhat, especially when compared with the Mercedes-Benz, but that may not be a deal-breaker.

2017 Lexus NX -- Aimed at those who prefer luxury over performance, the NX offers a lackluster 4-cylinder model and a fuel-efficient hybrid. But it also enjoys renowned Lexus build quality as well as head-turning styling.

Used Porsche Macan GTS -- Not a crossover coupe as such, but with a compelling design all the same. And one of the best driving experiences this side of a sports car.
