The Mercedes-Benz GLC was named "Most Popular Compact Premium Car" at the Honest John Awards, which were held in London on May 19th.

Winners are selected according to the interest and page views they generate through the Honest John website. The site receives two million visits every month and aims to provide consumers with advice on buying, selling and running cars.

Dan Harrison, editor of Honest John, presented the award, commenting: “Mercedes-Benz may have been a latecomer to the crossover party, but the GLC proves that arriving fashionably late can have its benefits. As an even more practical and family-friendly alternative to the C-Class, the stylish GLC has gained plenty of admirers - winning the Most Popular Compact Premium Car award in the process. Even more impressive is the fact the GLC review went live mid-way through 2015, yet still managed to outperform other premium models in a shorter space of time.”

The GLC is on sale now, with prices starting from ?34,950 for the GLC 220 d SE. The recently announced Mercedes-AMG GLC 43, which features a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo petrol engine, joins the line-up at the end of 2016.

The new GLC: Make the best of every ground.
