Sporty-looking SUVs dominate the luxury crossover arena. But the 2021 Mercedes GLC 300 has decided to take a different route. The German model looks fancier and more refined than the other vehicles in its class. The GLC 300 is not just about beauty, however. The luxury vehicle is also surprisingly powerful and fast and has impressive features that make driving pleasurable. The good qualities of the GLC 300 make it a compelling option for those looking for a stylish all-around sport utility vehicle.


Power and Speed

The 2021 Mercedes GLC 300 has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 255 horsepower. A nine-speed shiftable automatic transmission transfers power from the engine to the wheels. The default drivetrain is a rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel-drive options are available. The all-wheel-drive model can go from zero to 60 mph in a speedy 5.4 seconds. 


The GLC 300’s powertrain produces more than enough punch for your everyday needs. But it’s also powerful enough to pass other vehicles on the highway and even for off-road adventures. The SUV’s all-season tires are grippy and help the vehicle to stop at 172 feet while running at 70 mph in a test run. The EPA gave the GLC 300 a fuel efficiency rating of 21 mpg for city driving and 28 mpg for highway driving.


Luxury, Comfort, and Safety

For Mercedes-Benz, luxury goes hand-in-hand with comfort, and the GLC 300’s interior is a testament to this ideal. Premium materials cover the whole cabin, with the dashboard and doors having genuine wood inserts. The seats are upholstered with MB-Tex, a leatherette material that looks and feels like the real thing. 


All seats of the GLC 300 have a power four-way lumbar support. The front seats are heated, while the rear seats have a center armrest. Cargo space is not as generous as other Mercedes-Benz models, but they are still spacious and can fit as many as eight carry-on suitcases. 


The 2021 Mercedes GLC 300 has standard safety features that inspire confidence among drivers and passengers alike. The luxury SUV has a forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist, automated emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. 


Infotainment and Connectivity

The advanced infotainment and communications features of the 2021 Mercedes GLC 300 will keep you connected and entertained during your commute. The luxury SUV comes with a standard 10.25-inch touch-screen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity. The system runs on the latest voice-operated MBUX software. You can also control the system using the touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel or the intuitive center console touchpad.
