The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC, a compact luxury sport-utility vehicle, struck us immediately as a substantial improvement over its predecessor, the GLK. The GLC, introduced in 2016, is bigger and much more refined, especially in AMG garb.
AMG — Mercedes-Benz’ performance arm — gives the GLC the full treatment, with a choice of two engines. Our GLC43 came with the 3.0-liter V-6 bi-turbo engine, rated at 385 horsepower. For maximum performance, Mercedes-Benz offers the GLC63, equipped with a 469-horsepower V-8. AMG-badged GLCs are equipped with twin-clutch, 9-speed shiftable automatic transmissions.
