There's nothing stand-out about the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class's exterior. It's 15 feet of generic SUV styling with Merc badges pasted to the front and rear, so you know where the car came from. Not necessarily a bad thing, given that the compact luxury SUV segment is aimed at a more mature crowd. The optional AMG Line adds some noticeable touches and a set of 19-inch wheels, but we wouldn't bother. The standard 18-inch alloys still leave enough room for a decent profile tire, adding to the overall comfort levels. Since that's what Mercedes aimed for when building the GLC, that's how we'd keep it. Aside from that, standard elements include LED headlights with signature DRLs and anodized roof rails. Buyers can opt for a panoramic roof and a range of larger wheels - up to 20 inches in diameter.
At 183.3 inches, the GLC is on the longer side of the segment. The 113.1-inch wheelbase is equally impressive. It stands 64.7 inches tall and has a total width of 74.8 inches without mirrors and 82.5 inches with them. The standard rear-wheel-drive GLC 300 has a curb weight of 3,889 pounds, while the addition of an all-wheel-drive system takes the weight up to 3,977 lbs.

Surprisingly, Mercedes-Benz blessed the humdrum GLC with an extensive color palette. It starts with Black and Polar White as the only no-cost options. Metallic colors cost an additional $720, and you can choose between Obsidian Black, Cirrus Silver, Mojave Silver, Lunar Blue, Brilliant Blue, Selenite Grey, and Graphite Grey. Starling Blue Metallic is new for 2022. There are three designo colors to choose from, including Cardinal Red ($1,080), Diamond White ($1,515), and Selenite Grey Magno for $2,020.
