Mercedes-Benz GLC 250 4Matic Review
Compromise nothing

Introduction

The GLK was never brought here – because it was engineered to be anti-commonwealth.

If you didn’t get it, it was a joke that meant that there was no right hand drive option.

Because the X3 and Q5 proved highly popular everywhere where the Brits came and left so long ago, Mercedes decided that invasion was necessary too.

Where in the tightly packed world of automobile products does it sit you ask? Well it’s squarely mid-sized and doesn’t come with a wannabe attitude that tries to take on other segments too. So it’s focussed, much like how you should be when you’re trying to impress your interviewer.

In this case I was playing the role of interviewer with the GLC and for all it’s worth I am pretty sure I’d hire (purchase) it, except I’m not an SUV kinda guy. But say you are, and I know many of you folks are, you’re going to fall in love with it almost as quickly as it took you to decide whether we’re a right or left hand drive country.

And for the sour grapes amongst you that will lament and whine about the $220,888 (11 Apr 2016) price tag, go away and leave the rest of us to enjoy this wonderful new addition to Mercedes’ local line up.

Justin was super helpful and helped me really pushed for a better price. His hardwork, prompt replies and dedication was ultimately what pushed me over to swiftquote compared to other bidding websites.
