2018 MB GLC Blue.png



Luxury SUVs are an increasingly desirable breed, and we've seen models like the 2018 Volvo XC60 and 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC pull out all the stops to attract discerning drivers. You'll find that the Volvo SUV offers:

  • Up to 250 hp as Standard

  • Standard All-Wheel Drive

  • Up to 63.3 Cubic Feet of Cargo Space

  • Standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto

  • 17-Speaker, 1400-Watt Premium Sound System

Even the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC fails to compete.

Both luxury SUVs come with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine as standard, but the Volvo XC60 delivers superior horsepower. All-wheel drive comes standard for exceptional control, and a tighter turning circle makes it easier to maneuver. You'll even have a larger fuel tank, so expect to keep driving longer between trips to the gas station.

Taking a long journey from Dallas to Houston? Need to pack up your firstborn's belongings to take them from San Antonio to college? Regardless of what you need it for, the Volvo offers exceptional interior dimensions for passengers and cargo alike. In contrast, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC is going to seem cramped and confined.

Feature Not Available

Shouldn't luxury SUVs provide top-notch technology? Volvo seems to think so - the Volvo XC60 delivers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC makes them available as part of the Smartphone Integration Package, which costs a cool $350 and consists solely of those two features. You'll also miss the Volvo's superior sound system and the opportunity to add 8-inch dual monitors that play DVDs on the go.
