Highlights in the 2020 GLC

Even with the upgraded performance, you’ll notice that the RX gets more horsepower and torque than the GLC. However, we stand by our position that the GLC is a better performance machine than the RX. Why’s that? The GLC has a greater maximum towing capacity (7,700 lbs) than the 3,500 lbs in the RX. So even with that extra power, it’s not working for you in the way that it will for the GLC. Additionally, the 2020 GLC has a nine-speed automatic transmission compared to just an eight-speed automatic in the RX. Some of the other highlights in the GLC include:

  • 10.25-inch touchscreen display
  • 64-color ambient lighting system
  • Burmester® Surround-Sound System
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
  • Panorama sunroof
  • Heated/ventilated front seats
  • And much more!
