THROUGH THE RANGE

Auto Express - - Road Tests -

Our guide to which trim level might suit you AS with the Audi, the Mercedes is avail­able in three trim lev­els: SE and Sport, along­side the AMG Line tested here. There’s also a high­per­for­mance Mercedes-amg GLC 43 that’s pow­ered by a 362bhp tur­bocharged petrol V6.

The lesser ver­sions are diesel only, with a choice of four-cylin­der 220 d and 250 d, or a mus­cu­lar V6-en­gined 350 d. How­ever, the 250 d is our pick, be­cause it’s quick yet as ef­fi­cient on pa­per as the less pow­er­ful 220 d.

Put down a £4,500 de­posit for a three­year deal on Mercedes’ Agility PCP plan and you’ll get an SE for £466 a month. The Sport adds kit such as LED head­lamps and sat-nav for £511 on the same terms, while the AMG Line’s sporty ex­tras re­sult in a monthly bill of £537. Un­less you like ag­gres­sive looks, we’d go for the Sport and add air springs, which should cost a sim­i­lar amount to the AMG. Our choice: 250 d 4MATIC Sport
