Mercedes' COMAND infotainment system is as easy to use in the GLC43 as it is in most other models, and it's acceptably responsive in its performance. The system now offers smartphone-integration features from Apple and Google, but they cost extra.

The GLC43's infotainment system is largely unchanged for 2018, except that now buyers can equip their Benz with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. They are bundled together in the Smartphone Integration package for $350.

We measure the electrical current that each USB port provides. All USB ports found in a vehicle provide 5.0 volts, per the USB standard. Current, measured in amps, varies and dictates the charge times of devices. The higher the amps, the quicker a device’s charge time. Not all USB devices are created equal. Most modern smartphones can charge at 2.0 amps, while slow or stagnant charging can result from using current at 1.0 amp or lower when the device is in use.

Test Results: USB Performance

Besides the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the COMAND infotainment system is the same as last year's setup. We expect our testing from last year to apply to 2018 GLC43s, too. For details about the audio and infotainment systems in the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43, see our in-depth review.
