Introducing the Mercedes-Benz GLC
Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the new generation Mercedes-Benz GLC offers a combination of phenomenal on - and off -road driving capabilities. Equipped with the latest generation of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system, innovative driving assistance systems and new economic petrol and diesel engines; the GLC provides an impressive driving experience.
Improved aesthetics and updated state-of-the-art technology, the facelifted version of the premium sports utility vehicle features noticeable changes.
Discover what's new below, where the GLC is available as an regular SUV, and also a Coupé.
Muscular and sporty, the Mercedes-Benz GLC features an updated diamond lattice radiator grille, redesigned exhaust tips and a new paint colour - graphite grey. Individually, the design details have only been subtly revamped. However, as a an overall update, the appearance is sportier whilst the distinctive lines and muscularly sculpted surfaces reveal a strong off-road character.
The standard-fit LED High-Performance headlamps, torch-design daytime running lights and the heavily contoured radiator grille give the front end the impression of emotion, presence and dominance.
The inclusion of the AMG Line model impressively enhances existing features and displays a more aggressive overall look with the chromed diamond grille, angular exhaust tips and the front apron with the AMG signature design.
Interior and Technology
The innovative MBUX system is a new feature in the updated model of the GLC. The intuitive system enables interaction using voice control, gestures or touch. The intelligent interior assistant can determine whether it's the passenger or the driver making the command and make personalised adjustments accordingly.
An optional extra is the the Augmented Video which enhances the navigation by highlighting information such as traffic signs and house numbers on the multimedia display; improving the satellite navigation.
KEYLESS GO is a new standard-fit feature in the GLC; using the turbine-look start-stop button. An abundance of intelligent driving assistance systems are available when selecting the Driving Assistance Package (optional extra) help driving and maneuvering so much easier and stress-free.
