Mercedes-Benz is in the middle of a huge product offensive with each model getting a complete makeover, and now the biggest moneymaking SUV for the German automaker has emerged from its time under the scalpel.

The GLC replaces the GLK as the brand’s compact crossover, and the new 'C' in the naming structure means that it shares a platform with the C-Class. Even though the GLK first came out in 2009 in the thick of the economic recession, sales have always been strong, so the GLC has a lot riding on it. This redesign has to be successful, and luckily, Mercedes has another winner in its lineup.

Body roll was one of my main concerns with the increased ground clearance but I'm glad to see that the added weight makes it a non issue or at the very least, not a noticeable.
Does the GLC 300 come with heated front seats as standard? The options are expensive so the cost of everything will add up.

One thing you will feel is the bulkiness of it, being an SUV it's going to be a natural thing, doesn't seem like this reviewer covered that.

Well this is something that you are assuming. Perhaps it has great suspension and is quite a bit lighter than you'd except.

Yeah it is an assumption, it's typically something to expect though with a vehicle of this size with the proportions and weight it has, a good assumption i'd say, something to look out for once behind the wheel.

Maybe the tester didn't feel the bulk behind the wheel. He did say it was sporty, not something you associate with bulky.

I'm not saying you are wrong. I just think that engineers must be aware of these things and would try to find ways to mitigate those deficiencies.

All depends on what a person knows and the experience they come from, for some identifying bulk may not even come to mind.
