The GLC is Mercedes-Benz's latest offering in the competitive luxury compact SUV space, squaring off against the likes of the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Lexus NX. Based on the new C-Class sedan, the GLC is larger, 176 pounds lighter, more elegant and capable than the outgoing GLK it replaces. A 241-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine and nine-speed automatic transmission is the first of three powertrains available in the U.S. starting this November, with diesel and hybrid options joining in 2016.

    > When it comes to more powerful engines, Audi and BMW are the only ones offering higher-output six-cylinders in addition to diesel options. The GLC350e hybrid will eventually compete with the performance models from Audi and BMW, instead of following the road to efficiency Lexus took with its NX 300h hybrid.

    Supposedly, there's a turbocharged V6 coming out next year. Information on it has been spotty at best. Can anyone at Edmunds confirm?

    looks like a Honda CR-V to me. Other than the exterior side profile- sounds like a nice vehicle, with very expensive options.

    The nav screen looks like someone bolted an iPad Mini atop the dash as an afterthought.

    Mercedes hasn't made any official announcements, but we're expecting to see an AMG version of the GLC sometime next year which will likely come with the twin-turbo V-6.
