Mine is half a percent for 39 months... I'd call that cheap.

I had a glc300 loaner last weekend. I wasn't really at all impressed.

NX has always had adaptive suspension, you just need to go FSport3 to get it. Which is $$$.

All the 300s are there to appease older MB owners who find AMG products' ride is too rough or seat too hard. It's traditional luxury.

For sure, it was slow and boring af. Very floaty.

I didn't really use it much though, drove it to and from the golf course and downtown to work one day.

The back seats seemed fine? Just feels like a lot of money for what it is.

Get over yourself. If you can't derive pleasure from a 450hp rwd vehicle, then I think your fun meter needs to be calibrated.

Because certainly Calgary/Albertan drivers are deriving pleasure from how well their MB's and BMW's dodge potholes in this province

Fuck Beyond is getting ridiculous with its snobbery.

GLC and NX aren't in the same class I don't think. NX is GLA, X1 competitor I thought, while GLC is X3, RX class.

Was there a sport mode in the Merc that needed to be selected? Should be quite a bit faster than NX in a straight line.

To clarify I wasn't trying to compare the NX to the GLC, definitely different cars.

Responding to multiple posts at once is all.

Neither are really my cup of tea just that I found NX to be a pleasent surprise. Unrelated I also didn't think the glc was that special. Sport mode wasn't that much better when I tried it.

I see, they are all too small anyway for what OP is looking for.

Doesn't make anyone a snob to not think a pickup truck is a fun car to drive. IDGAF what you do to it, it's still gonna handle like shit.

I don't think that has enough rear room, so it doesn't count.

Oh man I miss my X-Runner, brings back memories at Race City seeing this pic... it cornered VERY well, and even more so after I lowered it another 2 inches, one of the more fun vehicles I've ever owned. But rage2 is right, rear room was pretty much non-existant, unless you wanna put the kids in the rear bed.

Aren't there short cabs where the rear seats are sideways? That would solve the kicking driver's seat issue

I doubt it's legal to put car seats in them though, nor would they be configured to take car seats in the first place...

Bed Ryder makes seats for the bed. Not sure if the airbags are included though.
