Depending on which model you choose, the Mercedes-Benz GLC can be surprisingly cheap to run for a large and luxurious SUV.
The basic petrol-engined model, the GLC 300, is the cheapest version to lease, but also likely the most expensive to run, as it can only return around a claimed 33mpg fuel economy. The GLC 300d diesel does better on this front, returning up to 10 miles per gallon more, while the GLC 220d can hit 46mpg.
But either of the plug-in hybrid GLCs will blow those figures out of the water – as long as you’re able to charge the car’s battery regularly and make maximum use of its zero-emissions driving capability. Do that, and you may come close to a pretty remarkable 157mpg in the GLC 300de diesel, or 128mpg from the GLC 300e petrol.
