Best used Mercedes GLC PCP finance deals

The Mercedes GLC is one of the most stylish and luxurious family SUVs you can get. Here are the trim levels and deals you need to know about

The Mercedes GLC is a premium and upmarket rival to family SUVs like the BMW X3, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and Land Rover Discovery Sport. There’s also a sportier GLC Coupe if you’re prepared to sacrifice some practicality in favour of sleeker styling, but we’ll be concentrating on the standard GLC here.

Launched in 2016 and updated in 2019, the Mercedes GLC is an ideal SUV for a family of four or five, with ample room in the back seats, plus a usefully large 500-litre boot. All versions get a handy electric tailgate for easy opening and closing, which is ideal if your hands are full with heavy shopping bags.

All models come with a substantial level of standard equipment, which means you might not need to upgrade from an entry-level GLC. Some of the options are quite expensive when new, but you won’t have to worry about this when buying a used example via BuyaCar. Few of the options and accessories add value to a used GLC, so you might bag a bargain with lots of extras included for little extra cost.

Because it’s based on the Mercedes C-Class Saloon, the GLC feels nice and compact on a country lane or a congested street, while the raised driving position provides a commanding view of the road ahead. There’s a limited range of engines, all of which provide a terrific blend of performance and economy.

Petrol and diesel versions are available, plus a plug-in hybrid for those looking for tax breaks and enough electric range to tackle a typical daily commute, along with performance versions in the form of the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 and 63S.

If this sounds like the family SUV for you, read on to discover more about the current AMG Line, AMG Line Premium and AMG Line Premium Plus models, plus a look at some of the older versions available on BuyaCar, to see which suits you best.

Mercedes GLC AMG Line deals

This is the current entry-level model, with prices when new starting from around £44,500. It’s worth noting that at the launch of the GLC in 2018, short of adding one of the premium equipment packs, AMG Line was essentially the range-topping model, so take this into account when looking at a used car.

The specification is far from entry-level. On the outside, you get wheel arch-filling 19-inch alloy wheels, AMG body styling, a diamond-shaped radiator grille, LED headlights, rear privacy glass and electrically-folding door mirrors.

On the inside, the AMG theme continues with brushed stainless steel pedals, floor mats with ‘AMG’ lettering and leather AMG sports seats. You also get three-zone climate control, a multifunction steering wheel finished in Nappa leather, an impressive 10.3-inch touchscreen media system, 5.5-inch multifunction display in the instrument cluster, sat-nav and voice control activated by plain English commands.

Mercedes GLC AMG Line Premium deals

Upgrading to AMG Line Premium adds around £3,000 to the price of a new GLC in exchange for an upshift in technology. This is the most popular trim level on BuyaCar, so you won’t be short of choice when searching for a used Mercedes GLC.

In addition to everything that’s standard on the AMG Line model, you also get ambient lighting, which can be set to 64 different colours, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, smartphone integration comprising of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and traffic light assist.

Mercedes GLC AMG Line Premium Plus deals

Short of buying the high-performance Mercedes-AMG version, the AMG Line Premium Plus is the plushest GLC you can get. It costs from around £51,000 to buy a new one, which represents a £3,750 uplift from the AMG Line Premium model.

For that, you get 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, keyless entry and start, a memory function for the electric driver’s seat, a parking package with a 360-degree camera and a panoramic glass sunroof (the GLC Coupe gets a sliding sunroof).

Mercedes-AMG GLC deals

The Mercedes-AMG GLC is the performance version of the range. In the case of the GLC 43, power is sourced from a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine, while the GLC 63 S gets a 4.0-litre eight-cylinder unit. Prices range from around £51,000 to £90,500 when new, with similarly high running costs to match.

That said, there are some deals to be found on BuyaCar, especially if you opt for the GLC 43. All Mercedes-AMG versions get the pick of the options catalogue, including 20-inch or 21-inch alloy wheels, a performance exhaust system, air suspension for a more controlled ride, even at high speeds, a 12.3-inch touchscreen media system and full smartphone integration.

Mercedes GLC Sport deals

Anyone after a great deal on a Mercedes GLC should look no further than the old Sport model. Improved ride comfort comes courtesy of the smaller 18-inch alloy wheels - meaning less metal and more rubber between you and the road - which is something you might appreciate on Britain’s notoriously poor roads.

You can also expect electrically-folding door mirrors, parking assist with reversing camera, a choice of driving modes, LED headlights, Garmin sat-nav, heated front seats and black ash wood interior trim. A number of optional extras were available when the car was new, so look out for these when searching for a used GLC.

Mercedes GLC Urban Edition deals

The Urban Edition was available for a short period, but there are always plenty available on BuyaCar. This pre-update trim level came with a long list of desirable features, so there was no need to raid the options catalogue.

Highlights include 20-inch two-colour alloy wheels, high-gloss black exterior detailing, LED headlights, an electric tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, heated leather seats, Garmin sat-nav, keyless start, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, automatic climate control and cruise control.

Mercedes GLC Night Edition deals

The Night Edition arrived at the end of 2018 as a temporary replacement for the AMG Line model. Highlights include 19-inch alloy wheels, revised front and rear bumper designs, new side skirts and new roof rails.

Other features included LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, active park assist with reversing camera, black leather seats, automatic climate control and ambient lighting.

Look out for Night Edition models with the optional Premium Plus package. For an extra £2,450 when new, customers got keyless entry and start, chrome door handles, a fabulous Burmester premium audio system and an upgraded media display.
