The Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV.

Pricing coming soon. 

Exterior

The new Mercedes‑Benz GLC remains true to the successful formula of modern, sporty luxury from Mercedes‑Benz: the completely redesigned model series offers a compelling combination of design and technology coupled with sporty performance as well as comfort and agility.

On the exterior one of the defining design highlights of the GLC is the redesigned front end, with headlamps that connect directly to the radiator grille to emphasise the vehicle’s width. DIGITAL LIGHT headlamps with additional daytime driving light ellipses and new blue trim, plus active floor lighting, are available as optional extras. The typical Mercedes SUV radiator grille with redesigned cut-out has a chrome surround.

On the inside the GLC has been transformed. The main dashboard has a flowing, wing-like structure, with the characteristic five round air vents running across the top. Below, there are now two high-resolution screens, an 11.9-inch driver display and large-format 12.3-inch central infotainment display.

Performance

The new GLC is systematically designed for hybrid drive, and sets standards in efficiency. The engine range has four-cylinder petrol and diesel units combined with an electric motor. The mild hybrid units use a second-generation integrated starter-generator (ISG), while the plug-in hybrids with a system output of up to 280 kW (381 hp) and a system torque of up to 750 Nm, use a permanently excited 100 kW synchronous machine.

All plug-in hybrids have an electric range of more than 100 kilometres (WLTP). This allows everyday journeys to be covered mostly in all-electric mode. The improved hybrid drive programme provides the electric driving mode for the most appropriate sections of the route. Electric driving is prioritised on journeys in urban areas, for example. But even on rough terrain, the GLC can be driven in all-electric mode upon request thanks to a new off-road programme.

Safety

The latest generation of the Driving Assistance package contains additional and further improved functions. These reduce driver workload in day-to-day situations for more comfortable and safe driving. When danger threatens, the assistance systems are able to respond to impending collisions as the situation demands. The operating principle of the systems is visualised on the driver display by a new display concept.
