If you've ever visited our Mercedes-Benz showroom here in Glendale, CA, then chances are the new Mercedes-Benz GLC has caught your eye. After all, this luxury SUV has been one of the most widely recognizable and popular models, prized by both families from La Crescenta-Montrose and daily commuters from Burbank, CA. However, as one of our most sought-after luxury SUVs, guests at our dealership have a lot of questions about the Mercedes-Benz GLC, like the differences between its most popular trims. Luckily, we've got all the answers you need here at Calstar Motors.

Now, the main distinction between the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 350e is the powertrain options under the hood.

For day-to-day driving around Burbank, the new Mercedes-Benz GLC is more than powerful enough to suit most driver's tastes, offering up to 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. Rear-wheel drive is standard for the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, but you can also opt for Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive if you so choose.

Of course, if you're like many drivers in the greater Los Angeles area, you're looking for a hybrid luxury car to add to your repertoire. Luckily, the new Mercedes-Benz GLC 350e pairs the powertrain of the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 with a hybrid electric motor, making a combined 315 horsepower while returning some fairly competitive fuel economy numbers for its segment. Better still, this model features standard Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive, so it's ideal for those who favor a more engaging driving experience.
