9. MERCEDES GLC

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

MERCEDES was late to the posh com­pact SUV class in the UK, be­cause the GLC’S pre­de­ces­sor, the GLK, was never sold here. The GLC makes amends with a broad range, in­clud­ing Coupé and rapid AMG ver­sions.

We’d steer clear of the Coupé if you want space and bet­ter value, with only low-spec cars squeez­ing un­der the £40k road tax bar­rier. The 220 d has enough pace, and ev­ery model comes as stan­dard with 4WD. Price range: £36,425-£93,219 Our pick: GLC 220 d AMG Line (£39,915) En­gine: 2.1-litre 4cyl diesel, 170bhp Trans­mis­sion: 9-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 130mph Econ­omy: 56.5mpg CO2: 129g/km
