2020 Mercedes - Benz GLC 300 Chicagoland Review By Larry Nutson - The Auto Channel

2020 Mercedes - Benz GLC 300. By Larry Nutson. I’ve just slid into the driver’s seat of Mercedes’ refreshed for 2020 GLC 300 premium compact SUV. The Cranberry Red and Black leather nicely bolstered sport seats, a part of the AMG treatment for $1,620, quickly kicked up the sport-side of me. Grey Oak wood trim, a black fabric headliner, brushed aluminum pedals and the AMG logo floor mats... Outside mirrors have a power fold feature which is a real plus when in a tight parking spot. Mercedes’ steering column mounted automatic transmission gear selector is a delight. Push the stalk down for drive, push up for reverse, push a button on the end for park. I’ve driven vehicles with shift levers, rotating shift controllers, push buttons, pull switches, all of them mounted on the center console or somewhere on the dash. I just found the Mercedes stalk on the column so simple and efficient to use. On the outside the 2020 GLC 300 has refreshed styling with new headlights and taillights, a new design grille with double louvres and diamond lattice. My AMG line test-car featured a chrome diamond-block grille and front bumper with an aggressive design, as well as angular exhaust tips. Riding on the same platform as the C-Class sedan, under the hood sits a 2. 0-L turbo with an output of 255-horsepower, up from the 241-horsepower on last year’s model. Source: The Auto Channel
