With Polestar Engineered trim, the 2020 Volvo XC60 promises a more powerful engine lineup. This increases the T8 results and truly attracts the attention of those who want to shift to SUVs offered by the brand. Expect a well-defined interior, as usual.

On the other hand, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC includes heated front seats and added the 115-volt power as a standard. It offers the Off-Road Engineering package and tri-zone climate control as an option.

Design & Style

With components that are truly classy from the inside to the outside, much praise is given to the Volvo XC60. This car has a lavishly designed exterior too, whose rugged lines meet its refined edges for a sturdier yet more modern look. With plenty of legroom and headroom inside, taller passengers will find the right extremely delightful to their taste.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC has a roomy and sophisticated cabin too. Adding to the comfort of users is its 14-way power-adjustable passenger seat. Soft-touch surface, leatherette upholstery and wood trim defines its interior. It lacks the cargo space needed to keep your belongings though.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 XC60 has the usual nine-inch touchscreen working with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, Bluetooth, 10-speaker stereo, and all other functionalities integrated with its Sensus infotainment system. It has the standard rearview camera for your safety. Advanced driver aids like oncoming lane mitigation, collision mitigation with active braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition and run-off road mitigation comes with the base trim. Pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection is also offered with the T5 version.

The base trim for the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is gifted with technologies such as the HD Radio, a Bluetooth interface, and two USB ports. Its seven-inch touchscreen display works for its infotainment system. It takes some learning curve getting familiar with the interface, though. For your safety, you can count on active brake assist, crosswind assist, and driver drowsiness monitor, among others. These are very few when compared to what the XC60 offers.


The 2020 XC60 has four powertrains, which starts from the base engine T5 that produces 250 horsepower. The second engine version in the T6 is a supercharged and turbocharged engine that produces 316 horsepower. There is a T8 that combines the T6 with an electric motor to produce 400 horsepower, and lastly the Polestar Engineered version for a 415-horsepower register. The GLC's four-cylinder engine reaches up to 241 horsepower only.

The Bottom Line

This comparison goes to show the many reasons to choose the XC60 over the GLC. It has a comprehensive list of technology and safety features, plus it has been designed to impress modern-day car lovers. Its powerful engine lineup is truly remarkable as well.
