Merc’s long-awaited rival to the BMW X3 is classy and practical, but pricey and only average to drive

The Mercedes-Benz GLC corrects a costly misjudgement on behalf of its maker.

Seven years ago, when Mercedes designed, developed and eventually launched the car’s predecessor, the GLK, the UK market for smaller premium-brand 4x4s was quite small. A quirk of the GLK’s seven-speed automatic gearbox would have made it costly to re-engineer the car into right-hand drive form – and so Mercedes didn’t bother. Which is why, until now, the firm has offered no rival for the now-popular BMW X3 and Range Rover Evoque to us Brits.
