Coming on sale to the UK in autumn is the new Mercedes-Benz GLC 220d 4Matic. Big Motoring World reviews the German manufacturer’s answer to the BMW X6M.
The five-seat SUV comes with a 2.1-litre diesel engine, with models producing 168bhp and 201bhp. It will match the X6M both in length and boot size, and is equipped with the new nine-speed automatic transmission and full-time four-wheel drive. They each now come as standard with Mercedes, and as with the company’s larger models, a height-adjustable air suspension system is an optional add-on, which means that you can venture off-road.
The GLC’s interior is succinctly similar with the C-Class. The dashboard is smart and fashionable, whilst the front seats give good thigh support, even for taller individuals, with headroom and legroom in abundance. It’s easy to fold the backrests, and the boot is well proportioned while offering lots of under-floor storage.
The GLC’s pulling power is extraordinary, and the engine sounds sublime on any surface. The nine-speed auto gearbox shifts with smooth precision and keeps the engine in its sweet spot with the right ratios. In the cabin, wind noise is well suppressed too which makes for pleasant motorway driving. The GLC comes with steel-sprung suspension and adaptive damping as standard.
Overall, an exhilarating and comfortable ride fit for families and individuals looking to have fun on the road. It’s great on any surface, particularly long motorways where it is able to excel in comfort, convenience, style and speed.
