Both the Range Rover and AMG GLC Coupe have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Range Rover has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The AMG GLC Coupe’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the Range Rover’s standard Hill Descent Control allows you to creep down safely. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer Hill Descent Control.

To help make backing safer, the Range Rover’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Range Rover and the AMG GLC Coupe have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, all-wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and driver alert monitors.

On the EPA test cycle the Range Rover Td6 gets better fuel mileage than the AMG GLC 43 Coupe (22 city/28 hwy vs. 19 city/24 hwy).

The Range Rover P400e can drive on battery power alone for up to 31 miles. The AMG GLC Coupe must run its internal combustion engine to move.

Regenerative brakes improve the Range Rover’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

The Range Rover Diesel’s standard fuel tank has 5.3 gallons more fuel capacity than the AMG GLC Coupe (22.7 vs. 17.4 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups. The Range Rover’s standard fuel tank has 10.2 gallons more fuel capacity than the AMG GLC Coupe (27.6 vs. 17.4 gallons).

For better traction, the Range Rover’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the AMG GLC Coupe (275/45R21 vs. 265/45R20).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover offers optional 22-inch wheels. The AMG GLC Coupe’s largest wheels are only 21-inches.

The Range Rover offers an optional full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the AMG GLC Coupe, it requires you to depend on its run-flat tires, which limits mileage and speed before they are repaired. If a run-flat is damaged beyond repair by a road hazard your vehicle will have to be towed. Some models of the AMG GLC Coupe don’t even offer run-flats.

Suspension and Handling

The Range Rover V8 has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The Range Rover has a standard driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The AMG GLC Coupe’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

The Range Rover has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Range Rover’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Range Rover’s wheelbase is 1.9 inches longer than on the AMG GLC Coupe (115 inches vs. 113.1 inches).

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover is 1.2 inches wider in the front and 1.1 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the AMG GLC Coupe.

The Range Rover’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (48.9% to 51.1%) than the AMG GLC Coupe’s (55.1% to 44.9%). This gives the Range Rover more stable handling and braking.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover has a 5.4 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the AMG GLC 63 Coupe (11.6 vs. 6.2 inches), allowing the Range Rover to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The Range Rover’s minimum ground clearance is 5.2 inches higher than on the AMG GLC 63 S Coupe (11.6 vs. 6.4 inches).

The front grille of the Range Rover Diesel uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer active grille shutters.
