Get More for Less with the GLC!

All in all, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is less costly than the Lexus RX and BMW X3, which is surprising considering all its standard features. Unlike the RX and X3, the GLC comes standard with a 14-way adjustable driver’s seat, a 9-speed automatic transmission, and a front airbag deactivation via a child seat detection system. This makes for a smooth, comfortable, and safe ride. What’s more, only the GLC generates 273 lb-ft of torque, which results in faster acceleration.
