2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Facelift Review | First Drive | Autocar India

The GLC is one of the best-selling Mercedes-Benz cars in India and that's because of its winning formula of luxury and comfort at an attractive price. Since its launch, however, many new rivals emerged, overtaking the GLC, and now there's an updated version that promises to bring it back to the front lines. Jay Patil drives the Mercedes-Benz GLC Facelift to see what's new.

    I bought Petrol version GLC 2020 model in March 2020 in India. Since then it’s been twice that “low engine oil” alarm came and I had to send to workshop fir top up of engine oil !! I escalated the matter to Mercedez Benz India team. They are investigating the matter. Right now car is in workshop and they are suspecting engine oil leak issue. Are other customers of Petrol Version or Diesel Version or GLC year 2020 mode also facing the same issue ? Pls email me at farhanshaikh74@gmail.com

    Please sort out that hideous bumper, the Indian costumers pay more than the European and American market. AMG trim levels should be the norm, ford endeavour or fortuner better value for money.

    I checked the previous version out and went for a XC60, I have a 2017 E220d also. For the price I paid for my cars in India, I could get a Range Rover Vogue 3.0 and S350d fully loaded in UK. Mercedes and BMW really rip the customers off big time here compared to US and UK. I’m appalled as to why a GLC300d or the previous GLK wasn’t available here. They would definitely be better than X3 and Q5. X3 and Q5 also don’t have the powerful versions here, they have only the 2.0l diesel version and it’s priced ridiculously high.

    GLC is surely X1's rival, not X3 and its segment. Glc for x1, gle for x5 , gls for x7.

    GLA rivals the X1 since they're based on their brands' entry level cars (A Class and 1 Series). GLC = X3, GLE = X5, GLS = X7 :)

    if you sit in both cars you'll realize what it compares with. X1 and GLC are not in the same league. The GLA can be compared with X1.

    GLC is good but in India and looking at Indian cumbersome roads and affordability there should be GLA update. Hope that star might bring mandatory stars in India ASAP.

    I own GLC previous version and also I have test driven GLE I feel GLE is heavier than GLC for that reason GLE lacks acceleration of GLC also the suspension is not that soft as GLC. I love GLC have been riding in it for 3 years now.

  • Amod Bhanushali

    Almost a 25L difference if you compare new GLC to new GLE (coming later in 2020). Same with previous generation. Also the cars are very different from driving pov. We bought the previous gen GLC because it's more drivable in the city. GLE drives like a small bus lol

    Not going with you in this case 10-15 lac may not be an issue but that increase also effect the tax a lot especially in India

  • cbrcoder


    10 months ago

    You know these cars always have about 10lacs discount after initial launch period. And 50lac vs 70lac is a big difference even in this category. I am looking currently to buy a premium SUV for 50lacs and 20lac additional is big difference for me (for no perceived benefit). Had GLE come with 7 seats then it would have made a case for me to stretch. This "stretch" business has no end, you could argue the same about from GLE to GLS with only more 10-20lacs.

    Yes but the gle bs6 version isnt launched yet. And when its launched, the price difference will be much more. At least 20 for sure.

    @Rigraj pathak It does compete against X3 at the price of around 50-60 lakh while the X1 is priced around 35-45 lakhs. The GLA competes against the X1. And Both the X1 and X3 are better than Merc.
