Bot­tom line: The GLC300 4Matic is a good wagon/SUV for an af­flu­ent fam­ily of five. You won’t be dis­ap­pointed with the qual­ity of the prod­uct or Mercedes-Benz ser­vice. Body style/lay­out: The GLC300 4Matic is a com­pact, front-en­gine, all-wheel-drive wagon/SUV largely based on the laud­able Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan. New for 2017 is the high-per­for­mance AMG GLC43. Other GLC-class mod­els in­clude the GLC300 and GLC300 4Matic.

Head-turn­ing quo­tient: It is a Mercedes-Benz. It al­ways gets at­ten­tion. Ride, ac­cel­er­a­tion and han­dling: It is pleas­ing in all ar­eas. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see how the en­gi­neered-for-high­per­for­mance AMG GLC43 per­forms in com­par­i­son with this one. Ca­pac­i­ties: Seat­ing is for five peo­ple. Max­i­mum cargo ca­pac­ity is 56.5 cu­bic feet. Fuel ca­pac­ity is 17.4 gal­lons. Premium grade is re­quired.
