2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV Review for Park Ridge, IL
Welcome to the finest in luxury compact SUVs.
The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC is an experience-driven SUV with a comfortable and stylish interior and an ultra-smooth ride. Sitting right in the sweet spot, the Goldilocks of the Mercedes-Benz SUV lineup provides similar power to its larger siblings while using less fuel and coming in at a lower price point.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC Performance
The base GLC 300 provides a 2.0L turbocharged engine putting out 241 horsepower. For more power, you can choose from two performance-oriented AMG trims: the AMG GLC 43 offers a V6 with 469 horsepower, while the AMG GLC 63 comes as a V8 boasting 503 horsepower. You may also wish to opt for maximum efficiency with the GLC 350e, a plug-in hybrid that achieves 315 horsepower with an astounding 73 mpg-e in the city and 75 mpg-e on the highway.
Rear wheel drive is standard on all GLC trims, though you can opt for all-wheel drive models labeled 4MATIC®. With 4MATIC®, you'll send 69 percent of your torque to the rear wheels for more sport-oriented handling.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC Exterior
There is no mistaking the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC for anything other than a luxury Mercedes-Benz SUV. Its angular features with long, sloping front and logo-predominant grille are shared with the rest of the lineup. For a custom look, consider upgrading to one of six wheel options, ranging from 18” to 20” and including five-spoke and multi-spoke designs. Black-out options are also available.
With ten exterior color options, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC offers a look for every style, from neutral palettes to more bold colors, including Brilliant Blue Metallic and Cardinal Red Metallic.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC Interior
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC includes the soft-touch surfaces and comfort perks you expect from a luxury vehicle.
On the standard GLC model, you’ll find smooth leatherette seats, a 14-way adjusting driver’s seat with memory settings, and heated front seats. Optional features are worth considering for the temperature extremes in Park Ridge, IL, including genuine leather seats, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, 14-way adjusting passenger seat, and a heated steering wheel.
Though the GLC is a compact model, reviews consistently note how comfortable the interior is for five adults. With 19.4 cubic feet of rear cargo space and 56.6 cubic feet with rear seats folded, the cabin is pleasantly spacious for its class. The engineers of the GLC clearly had families in mind when they planned the variety of handy cubby spots.
