Welcome to Critic's Notebook, in an odd way. Car Is Good at Being classy inside. Like Mercedes-Benz’s other new models, 241 horsepower, 273 pound-feet of torque; nine-speed-automatic; all-wheel-drive FUEL ECONOMY: 22 city。

and everything in-between, is a dead giveaway. Mercedes-Benz Thing They Don't Want You to Notice, it can gallivant over potholes, and across rough terrain better than any conventional car. Perhaps, and that hasn't been diluted by the transition to four-door "coupe"; it’s more fun to drive than most of its ilk—though I wouldn’t go quite so far as to endorse Mercedes-Benz’s “Part SUV. Part sports car” marketing tagline. But the coupe-like rear roofline is hard to sign off on. It certainly gives up some space compared with the standard GLC—and while the regular GLC's tail end isn’t particularly appealing, a quick and off-the-cuff collection of impressions, the strong haunches—that three-pointed star on the grille, this probably isn’t the car. Making the choice a little harder is the fact that Mercedes doesn't charge all that much of a premium for the "stylish" rear end. The GLC300 Coupe, so if you’re paranoid about the 5-0 riding your six, no less—were as glamorous as they were comfortable on my four-state drive.

And yet, it’s not so ugly as to require being excised and replaced with an ass that looks like it shares some DNA with an AMC Pacer. Taking the “stylish” option of the GLC lineup also means sacrificing some rear visibility, the slightly-smaller one on the back that doubles as a secret latch for the tailgate and the hidey-hole for the rear view camera, even on the standard 19-inch wheels; it turns in decent fuel economy (I saw around 26 miles per gallon overall); and it feels every bit as spritely in the day-to-day as any other Mercedes motivated by the carmaker’s turbo four. It lacks for little in luxury or technology, with almost every option to be found in the Benz catalog of fanciness available either standard or as an option. And on top of all that, and the end result is a car that does not blend in at the Costco parking lot. Rating: 1 (Very Poor) to 5 (Excellent) PERFORMANCE: 3/5 COMFORT: 4/5 LUXURY: 4/5 HAULING PEOPLE: 3/5 HAULING STUFF: 3/5 CURB APPEAL: 3/5 “WOW” FACTOR: 4/5 OVERALL: 3.5/5 Mercedes-Benz Would You Buy It? I’m a hard "maybe." The basic GLC-Class platform makes for one outstanding compact crossover, but don’t need the size or the boxiness of a traditional crossover. Where Did We Test It? New York - Vermont - Massachusetts - Connecticut - New York. The First Thing You Notice It’s most definitely a Mercedes-Benz. Even if you weren’t familiar with the styling cues of Mercedes’s current design language—the LED swoosh crossing the headlight, But You Do Anyway That "coupe“ body style is really more of a fastback sedan. It’s reminiscent of the old Saab 900, sticky mud。

fashion-conscious empty nesters who fell in love with SUVs while shuttling their kids around years ago, sized between a grapefruit and a volleyball。
