    Haven't driven a GLC43. However, went and test drove the next model up in size, the GLE43, and I liked it a lot and so did my friends. They thought the GLE43 was fun to drive and a bit nicer inside. It isn't as quick as the Macan Turbo (as its bigger and heavier). I believe the GLC43 is more like a Macan GTS in terms of performance and size. As for the interiors, to me the Macan and Cayenne interiors have always been ok, but I prefer the interior of the MBs to that of the Macan. However, that's subjective. Part of the reason one friend went with a Macan Turbo was dealer had one last 2017 Turbo in stock this past November, and we were able to negotiate a very large discount. It made this $92K Turbo quite a bit less than the price of a new well equipped 2018 GLE43, which I think had a sticker of around $84K. The MB dealer wasn't willing to negotiate much on an 2018 GLE43. That being said, both friends with Turbo Macans are very happy with them.

    I've also driven the Macan S and Macan GTS on the road and on a track and they were a lot of fun...just make sure you get them with the sport chrono. Without sport plus, they feel a bit sluggish to me.
