The GMC Acadia is a midsize crossover with handsome styling and impressive technology. In December, the 2017 Acadia is offered with several incentives for qualified shoppers.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is a midsize SUV that straddles the boundary between compact and midsize, offering luxury features and touches and a driving experience that’s primarily geared towards comfort — though the sporty AMG GLC43 adds additional performance.

Shoppers who would prefer the sporty AMG GLC43, meanwhile, can get one with payments from $659 per month for 36 months after $5,250 down at lease signing.
