2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC Against the Competition

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC is a premier model in the small luxury SUV segment. However, it's far from the only viable option. Drivers near Ann Arbor will likely consider other models like the Volvo XC60 or Audi Q5. We've provided a quick comparison between these models below for your benefit. Take a look at how the 2019 GLC stacks up against the competition and you can make an informed decision for yourself.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2018 Audi Q5

  • The new Mercedes-Benz GLC offers more powertrain options than the Audi Q5. The Q5 gives you just two engine options. By contrast, the 2019 GLC offers four engine options for a range of performance levels. You can pick the engine that suits your power preferences.
  • Both models offer usable power under the hood, but the 2019 GLC pulls ahead when it comes to maximum power output. While the SQ5 peaks at 354 horsepower, the AMG GLC 63 SUV turns out a mighty 503 horsepower. You can even get more power with the AMG GLC 43 SUV, which makes 362 horsepower.
  • The 2019 GLC uses technology to improve efficiency. Standard ECO start/stop technology can deactivate the engine during idling or stop lights to help reduce fuel consumption. Similar technology is not standard on the 2018 Q5.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2019 Volvo XC60

  • Both the 2019 GLC and the 2019 XC60 use a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. While the XC60 manages to scrape together slightly more horsepower, the GLC beats it in torque with 273 pound-feet. That means you'll have plenty of low-end punch right when you need it.
  • When it comes to maximum power, the two take quite different approaches. The Volvo XC60 uses a Plug-In Hybrid system to achieve 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. Mercedes-Benz, on the other hand, handed the GLC over to the AMG performance department to achieve max power. The result is the AMG GLC 63 SUV, which uses a biturbo, handcrafted V8 to produce 503 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.
  • The new Volvo XC60 mates its engines to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. If you're looking for even more precise control over revs and gearing, check out the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC. The 2019 GLC offers a nine-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability.
