Stellar Reviews From the Automotive Experts

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC sports a 241-hp 4-cylinder turbo engine, a high-strength 4-wheel multi-link suspension system, and a choice between RWD and AWD (4MATIC®). Featuring a long wheelbase with short overhangs, sculpted body work, and front/rear skid plate inserts, the new GLC embodies the strength and durability indicative of a Mercedes-Benz SUV. According to Car and Driver, the structure is as “…rigid as rebar; we had a chance to briefly off-road the GLC – including rocking over deep ditches with diagonally opposite wheels in the air – and heard not one squeak or rattle.”

The Car Connection stated, “The 2016 GLC-Class wears a conservative look on the outside, but with its rich interior design, it charms from the inside out.” Larger than the GLK it’s replacing, the GLC offers room for up to five passengers and includes 40/20/40-split rear seats, which can be folded down to reveal 56.5 cubic feet of max cargo space. Trimmed with Linden wood, the interior boasts all of the comfort and convenience features Fremont drivers expect from a Mercedes-Benz SUV, including a 7-inch freestanding screen, Bluetooth®* connectivity, a 14-way power driver seat with memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, and KEYLESS START®.

As is customary of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC brags an array of standard and optional safety features. Edmunds said, “There are features galore to further customize your GLC, with safety systems, in particular, being quite comprehensive.” The aluminum and high-strength body structuring is enhanced by standard Crosswind Assist, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS®, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, and much, much more. From Speed Limit Assist, to a Surround View System, to PRESAFE PLUS®, Fremont drivers can incorporate as many or as few available features as they wish.
