The Levante has standard Active Headrests, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Headrests system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

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

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

For better traction, the Levante has larger standard tires than the AMG GLC Coupe (265/50R19 vs. 255/45R20).

The Levante’s optional 265/35R22 front and 295/30R22 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the AMG GLC Coupe’s optional 40 series front and 35 series rear tires.

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

Suspension and Handling

The Levante 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 Levante has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Levante’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 Levante’s wheelbase is 5.2 inches longer than on the AMG GLC Coupe (118.3 inches vs. 113.1 inches).

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

The Levante’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the AMG GLC Coupe’s (55.1% to 44.9%). This gives the Levante more stable handling and braking.

For better maneuverability, the Levante’s turning circle is 1.3 feet tighter than the AMG GLC Coupe’s (38.4 feet vs. 39.7 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Levante has a 3.5 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the AMG GLC 63 Coupe (9.7 vs. 6.2 inches), allowing the Levante to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The Levante’s minimum ground clearance is 3.3 inches higher than on the AMG GLC 63 S Coupe (9.7 vs. 6.4 inches).

The front grille of the Levante 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.

The Levante’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The AMG GLC Coupe does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The Levante’s power window, power lock, power mirror and cruise control switches are lit from behind, making them plainly visible and easier to operate at night. The AMG GLC Coupe’s cruise control switches are unlit, making them difficult to find at night and operate safely.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Levante has a standard rear wiper. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer a rear wiper.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Levante offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer headlight washers.

On extremely cold winter days, the Levante’s standard heated steering wheel provides comfort, allowing the driver to steer safely and comfortably before the vehicle heater warms up. The AMG GLC Coupe doesn’t offer a heated steering wheel.
