TCC’s Bottom Line
The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class makes a terrific combination of the features and practical needs most buyers want in an attractive package. Although it's not a working implement like the classic Land Rover Discovery, the quirky Discovery Sport has plenty of merits up against rivals in the entry-level luxury class.
