2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs 2019 GLC

Determining which luxury model you’re going to buy or lease is a big decision. Not only do you have to take into account how expensive it is, but there are other factors as well. Do you go for the previous year, or the newest model available? So, should you get the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC, or the 2019 version?

To begin, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC is not a carryover model. That means you’ll see some new design and technology features that makes the 2020 GLC significantly different from its predecessor. For example, the 2020 GLC has a boost of horsepower, though the torque stayed the same. Likewise, you’ll have LED headlights standard, and a new standard touchscreen display system. This isn’t even the full list of upgrades you’ll find on the new 2020 model. So, if any of these features are non-negotiable features you need on your car, you might want to opt for the 2020 version.

Advantages of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC gives you more than what you see in the table above. Sure, it has LED headlights and a standard touchscreen display and voice control courtesy of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience Infotainment system, but there are other perks to enjoy when you drive a GLC. Standard on the GLC is a new-generation touchpad, 18-inch wheels, KEYLESS START®, Active Brake Assist, and of course smartphone connectivity through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®.

We did take the specifications and features from the base trim of both models. However, you’ll be able to see more upgrades to higher trims as well. The AMG® GLE 43, for example, also has a power boost of 23 hp. So, if you are looking for a full list of upgrades for the base trim or any other models and trims then we encourage you to contact an expert Mercedes-Ben of Arrowhead team member.
