2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs 2020 Cadillac XT5

Serving Milwaukee, WI

When drivers in the Milwaukee area demand luxury balanced with performance and technology in a new SUV, their attention reasonably turns to top brands like Mercedes-Benz and Cadillac. The GLC and the XT5 are top contenders if you are in the market for a smaller SUV. They are both compact luxury crossover SUVs that have undeniable appeal, but they are stunningly different in several critical areas. Are you ready to get more familiar with what these two luxury models deliver?


The first Mercedes-Benz GLC was released a few years ago, and the 2020 model boasts extensive design updates thanks to a facelift. It shows off a dual-bar grille with a large Mercedes-Benz logo mounted in the center. Its LED headlights are accompanied by a beefy lower-front fascia with chrome trim. Dual exhaust tips and deep, horizontal contouring through the sides elevate its design. In comparison, the 2020 Cadillac XT5 has also recently been updated and has its brand’s signature grille. The headlights have a seven-shaped LED light ribbon that runs vertically through the front fascia. The overall profile has a thick presence with a tall front end and a tapered roof.


The interior of the 2020 GLC is decidedly modern and unique with premium materials. The heated and power-adjusting seats are dressed up with accent stitching, and some have a dual-tone color scheme. The floating touch display screen sits on top of three round air vents. The center stack effortlessly rolls into the center console. It has wood trim, and it carries the touch control pad, the sound system controls, the climate system controls, and other equipment. In the 2020 Cadillac XT5, the dashboard is fractured in layered elements. The top element has elongated air vents, and the second layer holds the embedded touch display screen. Below this, you will find a climate control system interface and a modest storage area.


The entry-level engine in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC is a turbo 2.0-liter engine that generates 255 horsepower. It is available with all-wheel drive. The higher-level engine is a turbo 2.0-liter hybrid engine with all-wheel drive, and it produces 315 net horsepower. The XT5 also has a 2.0-liter turbo engine as the entry-level option, and it gives you 237 horsepower. The higher-level engine is a 310-horsepower, V6 powertrain.
