Mercedes-Benz GLC200







The GLC 200 is powered by a 2.0L four cylinder turbocharged engine that makes 184 hp and 300 Nm of torque accompanied by a nine-speed automatic transmission. The accelerator is an organ type and offers up some progressive feel, leading to good pick up when needed, and precision throttling when finessed. Those engine numbers also make the GLC 200 very brisk. Don’t expect breathtaking acceleration, as the GLC 200, even in sport and sport+ modes, accelerates with gusto and purpose in a civilized manner. It’s an isolating experience, as the noise suppression is fantastic, making anyone appreciate the Burmester sound system even more.


There’s a definite road presence to the GLC 200. The torch running lights combined with the huge three-pointed star logo dominating the center of the two slat grille can lead to some turned heads. While it may be shorter than the average crossover or premium compact SUV, the GLC 200 definitely feels stockier and wider, kind of leaning towards a sportier and road-going stance. And that’s okay, because the GLC 200 not only looks good, but handles just as well. 


The adaptive comfort suspension is also a perfect match to the GLC 200, creating a supple experience on all but the worst pothole-ridden roads. Hit a bump, and the thud is transferred ever so slightly. The steering is also nicely balanced, as it offers progressive feel instead of sharpness – it transmits a good combination of road comfort and body control. That nine speed shifts excellently, too.


The inside of the GLC 200 offers up a good amount of space thanks to maximizing the wheelbase and the dimensions of the C-Class platform. There’s a generous amount of trunk space, too, hitting more than 540 liters of space with the rear seats up. Seat adjustment for front passengers is a breeze as they are electronically adjustable and have memory functions. The trunk is accessible via a power liftgate, and keyless entry is standard.
