There’s a lot of luxury to love in our latest edition of A Lot to Love, everyone’s favorite car-dating game.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 and GLA 250 are all vying for your attention and your test drive. Each model features the high performance and potent engine options you’d expect from Mercedes, an upscale interior and high-tech, easy-to-use infotainment systems.
Which model will you choose? Will it be the classic C-Class, the refined compact GLC SUV or small but mighty GLA subcompact SUV? Let’s get to know a little about each of these worthy vehicles so you can choose the right used luxury car for you.
Mercedes-Benz No. 1: C-Class: Before you even hit the gas, you’ll be impressed by my sleek looks. I’m available in sedan, cabriolet and coupe styles. Car and Driver says I look like a miniature S-Class, my flagship cousin, inside and out. I have one of the nicest interiors in the compact luxury car class, with high-quality materials and finishes everywhere you look. Providing top-notch comfort to driver is my specialty.
Mercedes-Benz No. 2: GLC-Class: What’s your fancy – four-door coupe or standard SUV? I offer both body styles, with the sloped roof giving me an especially sporty look. Like my C-Class cousin, I have one of the nicest interiors in the luxury compact SUV segment. I satisfy with a fun drive and sharp cornering.
Mercedes-Benz No. 3: GLA-Class: I’m spacious in both rows of seats for a subcompact luxury SUV. My interior isn’t quite as opulent as other Mercs, but at my price point, I’m a good entry into the luxury segment (and when you shop at EchoPark, you’ll save even more). Fold my back seats down and you get 50.5 cubic feet of cargo space, so let’s get those suitcases packed for a romantic getaway. My ride is described as smooth and I love a winding road.
Mercedes-Benz No. 1: C-Class: I was redesigned in 2022, with 2022 models available with a 255-horsepower turbo four mild hybrid engine. I can go from 0 to 60 in about 6 seconds.
Mercedes-Benz No. 2: GLC-Class: My base engine is a 255-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. I’m not as agile as some rivals, but I’ll still show you a good drive.
Mercedes-Benz No. 3: GLA-Class: I may be small but I’m mighty. My base engine is a 221-horsepower four-cylinder. Car and Driver calls my driving demeanor “eager.”
Mercedes-Benz No. 1: C-Class:My standard infotainment includes a massive 11.9-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, biometric (fingerprint) memory settings, voice recognition, a Wi-Fi hot spot, HD Radio, Bluetooth, and a USB-C port. Upgrades include navigation, a 15-speaker Burmester audio system, wireless device charging, satellite radio and additional USB-C ports.
Mercedes-Benz No. 2: GLC-Class: My touchscreen is 10.25 inches, and picture this: U.S. News describes the graphics as “brilliant.” Other infotainment included is voice recognition, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, HD Radio, two front USB ports, and rear USB ports. augmented-reality navigation, a 13-speaker Burmester surround-sound stereo, wireless device charging, infotainment gesture control and satellite radio. Let’s set the mood with the available 64-color ambient interior lighting.
Mercedes-Benz No. 3: GLA-Class: Wake me up by saying “Hey, Mercedes.” (Confession: all three of us here have this voice-activated feature to access functions). Other infotainment: 7-inch touch screen, a touchpad controller, a six-speaker stereo, HD Radio, four USB ports, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
