A model of this sort will continually divide opinion. The folk who don't like it will tell you to save your money and buy a cheaper, more practical GLC - but then they're probably the same people who can't see the point of anything prioritising style over substance. In any case, this GLC Coupe does have substance to its proposition - at least when it comes to technology, quality and low running costs. Like its BMW X4 arch-rival, it's even reasonably spacious and practical.
In summary, what we've got here is a very complete contender indeed. Nobody actually needs a SUV Coupe of this kind, but then nobody actually needs a more conventionally-styled fashionable SUV either: there are plenty of 4WD estates that would do the job just as well. Typical buyers though, take the SUV route because it makes a little more of a driveway statement. Which means that typical buyers with the necessary budget, are probably going to like this car very much indeed.
