Mercedes-Benz GLC 250D

SUV under R700k

Judges’ Winner

The GLC is a medium sized SUV with a difference. With this car, you can expect to jump in and have your nostrils filled with that alluring new-car smell. With only 24 000kms on the clock, one would expect a Mercedes Benz to be solid mechanically. The GLC is that and more.

The 2.1-litre turbo diesel shoves this SUV along with grin inducing pace. Mercedes Benz diesel engines, but it certainly isn’t noisy or agricultural. This is coupled with a slick 9-speed automatic gearbox that delivers fantastic fuel consumption if driven maturely. MB claims a figure of 5.5-litres/100km. With 500Nm of torque available under your right foot, however, it would be difficult to be frugal with the GLC.

You’d just want to welly it away from every traffic light. Should you choose to indulge yourself in that kind of fun, you’d sprint to 100km/h in just 7.6 seconds. Impressive for a 2.1-litre, 1,8-ton car.
