2022 GLC vs XC60: Engine Power and Capability
The 2022 GLC and the XC60 look to be evenly matched at first glance:
|2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC||2022 Volvo XC60|
|Torque||273 lb-ft||258 lb-ft|
Both engines have similar horsepower and torque outputs, with the 2022 GLC edging ahead. Each SUV can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. However, towing will be easier in the 2022 GLC, which comes standard with Crosswind Assist. This safety feature keeps your car steady, even when you’re driving against powerful winds from the weather or even a passing truck. When you also have a trailer in tow, this added stability makes your next camping trip even more carefree. The XC60 does not offer a comparable feature.
The Mercedes-Benz is built with the philosophy that it’s not just about power—it’s about how you use it.
Driver-Assist Safety Features in the 2022 GLC and XC60
Driver-assist safety features you can find equipped in both vehicles include:
- Blind Spot Assist
- Active Brake Assist
- Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
Take peace of mind on the road even further with the Speed Limit Assist feature, exclusive to the 2022 GLC. This safety feature uses externally mounted sensors and cameras to detect speed limit signs, and from there, it automatically projects the posted speed limit on your instrument cluster. Having the posted speed limit right next to your speedometer is a great way to add some safety and awareness for the road ahead.
Comfort and Convenience
You deserve comfort year-round. That’s why the 2022 GLC and XC60 each offer heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and genuine wood trim.
In addition, the 2022 GLC offers heat- and noise-insulating glass. By blocking external noise from entering the cabin, the 2022 GLC preserves its internal oasis. Plus, the heat insulation helps maintain cabin temperature, so the SUV can run more efficiently.
Once you have your comfort needs met, ramp up the atmosphere with available interior ambient lighting from the Mercedes-Benz. Choose from up to 64 different colors to set the mood, complement your favorite music, and more.
The Volvo does not offer the comfort of insulating glass or the personalization of ambient lighting.
