2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Class vs. Its Competition

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class competes often with the BMW X3 for luxury buyers.

The X3 is similarly comfortable with great powertrains, including a new X3 M that should give AMG a run for its money.

The Audi Q5 is conservatively styled, but its powertrain may be a little more refined.

The Volvo XC60’s interior is on par with the GLC’s excellence, although its infotainment system is beginning to feel dated.

The smallest Range Rover is new this year, the Evoque has all the curb appeal and better efficiency.

The Lincoln Corsair is the replacement for the MKC, we’ll report back once we’ve driven it.
