The 2021 Mercedes Benz GLC sits at the top of its class. It has a powerful engine, a wonderfully appointed and sumptuous cabin and an amazing amount of standard features.
The GLC SUV has 19.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats upright and 56.5 cubic feet when the seats are folded. The front seats give great support especially on longer trips and are quite plush. It’s very easy to find a driving position and there is plenty of headroom for taller occupants; visibility is not affected at all. The back seats are also quite plush and there is plenty of room in the back.
Heated and power adjustable front seats and the leather wrapped steering wheel are standard.
If you have to use the tether for car seats the GLC has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the middle seat. Because of the ease of use this LATCH system received the highest rating of Acceptable from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.
The styling of the interior is what you would expect in a Mercedes and it has a nice quiet ride.
