On the road

Mercedes GLC 250 d 4Matic AMG Line Priced from £39,595 An­nual Road Fund Li­cence £110 Com­bined fuel con­sump­tion 56.5mpg Power 204bhp 0–60mph 7.6sec Top speed 143mph

Which may ex­plain the wal­let­friendly drink habit of 55mpg.

I even liked the ride and I wasn’t ex­pect­ing to, given I was test­ing the more bling AMG ver­sion with lower-pro­file tyres and coil springs. This car cor­nered flat with­out ever be­ing bone-jar­ring or jumpy. If I was buy­ing one, I would choose the less costly Sport trim and up­grade with the Off-road pack­age (£495) for higher side­walls, bet­ter ground clear­ance and the Air Body Con­trol (£1,495) for a more com­fort­able, adap­tive ride.

Had I the £40,500 nec­es­sary and were I to do that, I would say, with­out any shadow of a doubt, that I re­ally liked this car.
