It’s a good year when an automaker can claim an award from Motor Trend, which is one of the most respected publications in the automotive world. That means it’s a good year at our dealer serving Orange County with the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC being named the 2017 SUV of the Year. That is no small feat.

This new model walks the line between sports utility and luxury sedan with aplomb, and it backs up those looks with pulse-pounding performance. This model replaced the GLK Class and the GLC is looking fresh and ready for you to test drive at Walter's Mercedes-Benz of Riverside.

The Sum of Its Parts

The experts at Motor Trend seemed to echo a similar sentiment when talking about what they love in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC. They loved how it was engineered with the best parts of other models. A small SUV that’s designed to be a crossover should give you a mix of both car and SUV features. The basis of the GLC model is the mechanical components of the E-Class with the interior and electronics of the C-Class. Add in some SUV capability and you have a true luxury crossover.

Judge Mike Accavitti explained it quite simply,

“Overall, this is a great vehicle. You know you’re getting into a Mercedes as soon as you open the door to the GLC. The quality of the materials and the elegance of the design are very consistent with the Mercedes-Benz brand proposition and reputation.”

You can get a look at the 2017 GLC firsthand at our Mercedes-Benz dealer serving Orange County and there’s no way that you’ll be disappointed. The interior is exactly what you’d expect from the German brand, rich wood and leather accents and a wealth of advanced technology at your disposal. Many of the critics mentioned how it felt more like a smaller version of the S-Class in both amenities and performance, which is all the more reason to come check out the 2017 Motor Trend SUV of the year at Walter's Mercedes-Benz of Riverside.
