Running costs for the GLC Coupe are more reasonable than you might expect from a large, sporty premium SUV. The biggest influence on running costs when leasing a Mercedes GLC Coupe is what engine you pick – and if you want to minimise your bills, you should go for either of the plug-in hybrid options: the petrol-electric GLC 300e or the diesel-electric GLC 300de.
Plug these in regularly and keep their batteries topped up, and you’ll be able to do a good deal of your weekly motoring without using a drop of fuel. And it’s good to know that the GLC 300de in particular is still pretty economical even after the battery has been depleted – it is a diesel, after all.
If your budget or lack of suitable charging solution limits you to one of the non-hybrid versions, don’t worry. They’re still reasonably efficient, with the GLC 220d diesel managing more than 44mpg.
