2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV Wins Awards

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC KBB Best Buy Award

It’s officially winter: the air is chillier and frantic shoppers are finishing their shopping. Still looking for that perfect holiday gift?

Here at Benzel-Busch, that means it’s also time for year-end lists, including Kelly Blue Book’s consistently reliable Best Buy Awards.

What are the benefits of the Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV?
Throughout 2016, we saw a wide array of new releases in the popular and ever growing luxury SUV segment, but we felt that one vehicle in particular stood out from the pack. Kelly Blue Book seems to have agreed with us, officially naming the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV their Best Buy of 2017 in the Luxury SUV category.

In their press release, KBB referred to the new 5-passenger GLC SUV as “just about the perfect compact luxury SUV.” And they’re not the only ones who’ve expressed their delight at this incredible addition to the Mercedes lineup—keep reading, or call your local Benzel-Busch dealer, to learn why.

Mercedes-Benz Level Performance
The Mercedes-Benz name is synonymous with first-in-class engineering, and the 2017 GLC SUV is no exception. The GLC’s advanced, 241 horsepower, 2.0 liter turbo 4-cylinder engine is a fine-tuned masterpiece that simultaneously uses less fuel while providing greater power for whatever the road may throw your way. The GLC SUV’s superior driving experience is further bolstered by 4MATIC all-wheel drive, 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with shift paddles, standard Dynamic Select driving modes to customize your desired driving style on any given day, and an adaptive air suspension. You will experience acceleration and handling that feels like a sports sedan going from 0-60 in 6.8 seconds. You will also enjoy the benefits of 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

Road-Ready Opulence
Spacious and supremely comfortable, the 2017 GLC’s interior is crafted with stunning style, from the soothing Linden wood that surrounds it to the elegant metallic accents that provide a perfect finishing touch. It also boasts a very roomy cargo area with easy access. As KBB noted in their press release, the GLC’s “structure and sound insulation contribute to a level of quiet that one would expect from a larger, pricier luxury sedan.”

The exterior is equally impressive, with an aggressive, sporty look, 18-inch wheels, and the signature Mercedes-Benz star adorning the front grille. All in all, its appearance matches its character: this is a vehicle that can take on any road, without sacrificing the comfort and high-end experience of its passengers.

What are the safety features of the Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV?
In designing the 2017 GLC SUV, Mercedes-Benz thought of everything, from the GLC’s state-of-the-art driving controls to its family-size features. The GLC also incorporates the latest in Mercedes-Benz’s advanced safety features, including Collision Prevention Assist Plus, Attention Assist, a rear-view camera, high tech seat belts with Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs), and much more.

With recognition pouring in from Kelly Blue Book and others (the GLC SUV also just won the 2017 Motor Trend SUV of the Year®), it’s clear that the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV is the rare luxury vehicle that enthusiasts have been waiting for: the one that gets every last detail right at a value you won’t want to miss.
