I'm getting a new car in a couple months and have been looking at luxury SUV's. I have always had a bigger car and like sitting up higher on the road, plus I'm 6'6" and don't like breaking my back to get into sedans. The Mercedes GLC 63 S AMG seems like the most fun to drive SUV you could possibly get and the fastest (0-60 in 3.7s). Of course it's not the most practical SUV but like I said, I simply like cars that are higher up and have ground clearance. Every review I have read praises the vehicle. You guys seem to shit on every car in existence so maybe somebody can bring me back to earth and tell me why this would be a bad idea, or give other suggestions for a luxury SUV. My budget is anything <100k.

get the X3M
more fun to drive, better quality interior, more practical, better tech plus it's a new model while the GLC63 has been around for a couple of years already
>>
>>20943668
Oof. Didn't really know this existed. Just watched a video on it, seems really dope I'll have to look more into it. But I really like what I've seen so far. Just made the decision harder god damnit.
>>
Macans are pretty fun too, if you don't have any dealbreakers there's no reason not to test drive all the options in the segment

X4M also exists when you want that "coupe suv" meme
>>
>>20943700
Yeah I like that X4M more. Like I said I'm not getting an SUV for the utility value, I simply like bigger cars that are higher up. I like the looks of the "coupes" more even if it takes away the purpose of an SUV having a lot of room in the back passenger seats.
>>
I just really love the grill on that GLC.

+1 for the X4M (or even one-up and get the X6M though that's not really a brand new toy).
>>
Macan turbo is an abomination with the overly soft and rounded body. Definitely a no go.
GLC 63s is alright but tech is shit
X3M is a major go
SQ5 is not bad but underpowered(competes with macan gts and glc43) not sure if RS q5 is coming.
Alfa stelvio quad is supposed to be best drivers SUV according to doug. I can't get behind the ugly front facia tho.
Dont get the Levante

that's like saying "a vegans bacon."
all you get is fakery and dissapointment.
if you want a drivers car you get a sportscar.
If you want luxury you get a luxury car.

I used to work on these cars for a living.
Don't fucking do it mang. Sure the AMG is way better built than your everyday GLC momvan but they're still bottom of the barrel shit in terms of build quality.
Like, you'd be disgusted if you saw the cost cutting measures they take with these cars, they simply don't give a fuck anymore and just want to offload them to rich moms in the US.
I can't even begin to explain how fucking horrible I feel for having to work with such piles of shit, knowing that someones life might be at stake when these things decide to either fail or fall apart.
The A35 and A45 are just as bad too, they suck fucking balls. Sure both the AMGs are fun to trash around, the GLC V8 sounds absolutely amazing, especially when you accidentally "forget" the exhaust and the A class AMG is a fucking monster in parking lot hooning for the tiny while they hold together, but other than that they're just substandard shitboxes.

Sure I'm just a nobody spouting shit with sources being in the region of "Dude trust me" but I've said what I wanted to say.

Especially looking for advice. Like the people who post on 4chan have clearly made some pretty terrible choices. Go do something productive
>>
>>20944097
It does not look basic next to a goddamn Mercedes anything. It's a Porsche.
>>
>>20944133
Also if you REALLY want to get the GLC, wait for the facelift tech to land on them in a few years as the new operating system isn't as retarded as the previous COMAND shit was.
On the downside the facelift won't have physical gauges anymore but a 12 inch LSD display instead.
>>
>>20944138
Look man, I value different perspectives thats it.
>>
>>20944133
You see this is why I asked, never would have heard something like this.
>>
>>20944154
Yeah I'd post proofs but photographing in company grounds is prohibited and I don't wanna be doxed as I have 2 girls to look after and a fuckton of LSD to do, that shit ain't free.

If you do all your maintenance yourself, stay away from the mercs, but if your pockets are really fucking deep for weekly mechanics trips, go on ahead. The GLC coupe is a great looking SUV and while most of /o/ hates the coupe suvs like the X6, X4 and GLC S, I think they're amazing looking.

Also, the interior in the GLC is kinda unergonomic and despite being a quite hearty sized SUV, legroom is a bit ehh and the backseats are cramped.

Also a major problem in the current models at the factory used to be the air suspension hoses. They're quite thing, easily get bent and blocked and have a habit of coming off by themselves every now and then.

Dude what lsd is hella cheap, at least stateside
>>
>>20944202
Not the states nigga, 20€ a piece here and most of the time the dealers are all "dude this is some strong shit at least 300ug a piece" then they're like 50 or max 100ug blotters that barely last you 2 hours.
Fuck I haven't even had good LSD in ages and just the other day I bought 3 pieces from some dude that claimed them to be 200ug blotters, dropped all 3 of them because fuck me and apparently they were that strong. Spent the next 24 hours up and away somewhere.
>>
>>20944173
Yeah SUV coupes seem to be a very polarizing car. If the legroom in the front isnt good that could be a deal breaker due to my height but I guess I’ll find out when I get a chance to test drive. Thanks
>>
>>20944206
I'm 191cm tall and there's barely room to sit comfortably for me in the front, but then the backseat passenger will have fuckall room going on. Also the airconditioned seats look fucing disgusting. Like i don't have no trypophobia or some gay shit but fuck me those holes look absolutely disgusting.

This is such the obvious answer I'm not entirely sure why OP is trying to avoid it. The Macan Turbo is just as fast to 60, faster through a quarter mile, faster through half a mile, more interior room, better to look at, better overall build quality, handles like a fucking sportscar by comparison, what else? And make sure it's green.
>>
>>20943848
Your friend is a biased retard then because Mercedes is known to be lacking in the interior quality department where BMW and Audi excels.
Mercedes makes the cabin look more luxurious but they cheap out on materials and fit and finish.
>>
>>20943622
why would you not get the Porsche Macan? Literally the best in its class. GLC is nice but not Macan nice.
X3(M) has the worst interior of a car in that price class that I've seen. Looks like they asked early 00's chrysler for help with their materials. Drives nice though.
Meme answer: Alfa Stelvio

Beep Beep, Toyota shill coming through, this guy got a face lift this year and wont have anywhere as near as many problems as the merc like what this guy >>20944133 said.

Because you feel the need to sit up high and mighty, your fucking low beams blind the shit out of everyone in a normal sized fucking car, you're too big and harder to see past before overtaking etc. No need to be in a vehicle that big, yet because so many people are in vehicles that big, everyone wants one as otherwise they feel small af
>>
>>20944319
X3 interior quality, fitment and surfaces are way above the GLC and the seats are far nicer.

Get a used Macan or used Cayenne. But you will need carbon ceramic brakes for the Cayenne.
>>
>>20945455
Why the carbon ceramic brakes?
>>
>>20943622
Have you sat in these coupe things yet? I have and my head touches in pretty much all of them and I'm only a manlet at 6'1''. Unless you want to sit like a retarded gang banger you should find something lower with a higher roofline.
>>
>>20945661
No I haven't, I just kinda assumed since its an SUV it would have more head room. I'm going to test drive whenever I get a free weekend. Nobody has mentioned that problem in the reviews I've watched but I guess they could be manlets that would never have that problem to begin with.

Because the car is heavy as fuck and the normal brakes just don't cut it. Especially if you want to drive a little bit sporty.
>>
>>20943851
Yea I agree too but Doug has driven hundreds of cars already and that is what he's claiming. Let's just say Alfa SUV is the best driving car in the SUV segment.
>>
Watch this OP : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm7knxZBBlA
>>
>>20945433
Nigga I'm 6'6" and I literally fit into a Honda Beat. Just look at that stats for most SUVs in terms of legroom and hip room; most sedans/wagons/hatchbacks actually have more room, due to an inherently more efficient seating design and layout.

If you test drive some cars you'll see what I'm saying is true. (Obviously in similar segments - a Yaris won't have more space than a luxobarge SUV, but a luxobarge sedan certainly will)
>>
>>20945850
Yeah I understand that we fit in the cars when seated, but I mentioned actually getting into them I don't like. You know that weird squat motion you have to do to duck your head. You might say its a stupid reason and it probably is but it just feels awkward and obviously you would be doing it every time you use the car. I also just like a higher up seat it feels more comfortable to me.
>>
>>20945844
Well thats concerning.
>>
>>20945932
It is a stupid reason, but hey, not every purchase has to be the most logical and practical. You do you bro.

What other SUVs are you considering? And how long do you plan to keep it?
>>
>>20945961
So far the others I'm really considering are the Porsche Macan & Cayenne. I like the BMW SUV's but everyone talking about their maintenance is turning me off. And probably going to keep it a while it's going to be my daily driver.
>>
>>20946028
If keeping it beyond lease period is your thing, and BMW's (lack of) reliability is a concern, you may want to avoid most German makes of vehicles... Of course that basically only leaves Lexus or some exotics.
What's your budget?

>>20946785
Great recc, probably not as straight line fast but I've heard it's the best handling SUV for anywhere near the price point.
>>
>>20946330
Yeah numbers. I regret partying my 20s away to some degree but hey I grew all those mushrooms and sold all that weed and ecstasy and saw all those phish and moe shows with my highschool sweetie! Maybe I'll become an accountant but actually working and wearing those fully comped $200 steel toes has been fun. I get a month off a year and pay like $270/month for a good family insurance plan in an economically depressed area.
>>
If I was ever in the market for a sporty SUV, which i don't think I ever will, I would go for some kind of BMW.
All their SUVs, yes even your mom's X1 sDrive16D, have as close to 50/50 weight distribution as possible and sportier than normal suspension setup even on non sporty trims.
