New Mercedes-Benz GLC: even more sporty and connected
Distinctive appearance, new operating concept, innovative driving assistance systems and a new range of engines: here is the new Mercedes-Benz GLC.
The exterior design captivates with the wide and sporty visual appearance. Muscularly sculpted surfaces and distinctive details such as the chrome elements, which now run from the front to the rear end as standard, the redesigned headlamps and the heavily contoured radiator grille ensure a strong off-road character. The interior combines luxury and user-friendliness in an uncompromising way: The workmanship is at the usual high level and the infotainment system has larger touchscreen multimedia displays. In addition, the latest generation of the MBUX - Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system impresses with intuitive and versatile operating options such as touch, gesture control and the optimised voice control system.
The driving assistance systems were considerably expanded and complemented with the exit warning function, the emergency corridor function and the tail end of a traffic jam function, among others. Also new is Trailer Manoeuvring Assist, which provides assistance with manoeuvring in reverse in particular.
For the market launch in mid-2019, the GLC will be equipped - exclusively in the 4Matic four-wheel drive version - with five new petrol and diesel engines of the latest engine family from Mercedes-Benz with more output (from 197 to 245 hp) and greater efficiency, thanks also to the new 48-volt on-board electrical system with belt-driven starter-generator (on the petrol engines).
More engines will follow later in the year.
