2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV VS Coupe
Luxury shoppers who are looking for a premium compact crossover may already have their eye on the attractive Mercedes-Benz GLC. However, there are two different styles available with this model. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV offers the traditional squared rear of an SUV, while the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe has a sporty rear line. In this 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV vs Coupe comparison, we are going to look at the base models of these two body styles.
Both of these models have four doors and seat five passengers. While the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 SUV offers more maximum passenger space with the rear seats folded down (56.5 cubic feet, compared to 49.6 cubic feet on the Coupe), both of these models offer 17.6 cubic feet of space in the rear beneath the cargo protector, which means that in day-to-day adventures they offer similar sizing.

Performance and Features on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC
Both the models in this 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV vs Coupe comparison come equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated for 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. In the SUV model this allows a 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 6.3 seconds. Acceleration is fractionally slower on the Coupe model, but that may be because the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 Coupe comes standard with elite 4MATIC® all-wheel drive*, which can offer more confident driving in many weather and road conditions. The SUV style is available with a 4MATIC® model, but does not come standard with it, which also explains the slightly higher starting price on the Coupe model of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC compared to the SUV options.
Both of these compact crossovers come standard with elite luxury features like a 14-way powered driver’s seat with memory settings, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power liftgate, and a central controller with a seven-inch color display. Features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, a cabin air purification and fragrancing system, and advanced parking assistance are available on both models.
