2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC, EQE SUV top this week’s new car news

This week, Mercedes-Benz announced pricing for its redesigned compact crossover and new electric mid-size crossover SUV, both of which will be arriving in dealers soon and present shoppers with a choice between an affordable turbo-4 or a loaded technological electric value. It’s a microcosm of the times for luxury car shoppers. 

We also review the BMW iX electric crossover SUV as well as the brand’s flagship three-row SUV. The red-hot mid-size truck segment remains in our scope as we pit two classics against each other before their imminent redesigns. 

Here’s what moved us this week.
