Volvo XC90

Mercedes-Benz GLC

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC

Body Style           Luxury SUV

Price Range        With pricing on Carsforsale.com averaging around $46,000, the GLC offers a lot of bang for your buck.

Wards Summation        Competitively priced but heated steering wheel would be nice; slick animation when cycling through digital owner’s manual.

Carsforsale.com’s Favorite Features

      • Burmester surround-sound audio system bumps in the right ways.
      • Blindspot detection illuminates the rearview mirrors to alert you of a vehicle in your blindspot.
      • Cross-traffic alert assists you when backing up.
      • The first-rate, high-resolution display screen.

Note: The AMG GLE63 S was praised for the tremendous balance between comfort and sportiness, but lacks the new multimedia interface.

      • Forward-collision warning gives you an edge in safety, particularly in heavy traffic.
