Mercedes-Benz vs Range Rover

When it comes to the battle of top-ranking luxury SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 and the Land Rover Range Rover Velar, it’s a pretty tight race. But despite what each has to offer, there is still a clear winner. Take a look as the 2018 GLC goes head-to-head with the 2018 Range Rover Velar

Aside from the obvious difference in price, the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 features a 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission that helps boost efficiency and performance by transferring torque using fluid rather than a mechanical clutch.
As far as performance, the 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission is capable of skipping individual gears when downshifting to provide quicker accelerations and faster sprints.


Unlike the 2018 Range Rover Velar, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 comes with a host of standard safety features for drivers in the Inland Empire like, ATTENTION ASSIST®, an automatic system that alerts the driver with both visual and audible warning if it detects signs of drowsiness on trips. Other standard features you won’t find in the Range Rover Velar are:
• Rain-sensing windshield wipers

While you may find similar safety features in the Range Rover, you won’t have to expand your budget to obtain them, and we don’t believe you should.
