The Mercedes-Benz GLC Class has been described as a 'C Class on stilts' but it has much more to offer than you would think. It has an upmarket design and lots of standard features such as electrically operated heated seats, an electrically powered tailgate and an easy to use infotainment system. The boot is veritably cavernous and includes a 'false bottom' stowage area for keeping your valuables safe and split folding rear seats too. There is plenty of room in the back for rear passengers with enough space for three adults and the front is equally accommodating. At present it is only available with the 2.1 litre engine variant in diesel (although Mercedes do offer two power outputs) and it offers a fine blend of performance and economy. The suspension is extremely comfortable and is surprisingly easy to drive for such a large car.
