The new GLC is in the starting blocks in a significantly more attractive guise, with enhanced engineering and improved equipment. Customers can order the versatile SUV from 44,506 euros, which is the same model price as the predecessor. Market launch in Europe will start in September.
After the GLE and GLE Coupé, the GLC is the third SUV model series to be presented by Mercedes-Benz this year. The mid-size SUV impresses with the brand’s characteristic safety, state-of-the-art assistance systems and superb energy efficiency. And an unprecedentedly diverse range of equipment enables GLC customers to configure their SUV according to their own requirements and preferences.
With the exterior design and equipment lines AMG Line, EXCLUSIVE and OFF-ROAD Exterior, the customers can place a particularly sporty, exclusive or cross-country emphasis on their GLC. Customers can also choose from attractive equipment packages such as the familiar Night package, 12 different paint finishes and 15 different wheels up to 20 inches. Customers also have plenty of scope for individualising the interior of their vehicles. The offering here ranges from the interior design and equipment lines – AMG Line and EXCLUSIVE, through seat covers and door trim in fabric, ARTICO man-made leather, DINAMICA microfibre, leather or designo nappa leather in the colours black, silk beige, espresso brown, saddle brown or platinum white pearl (designo only) through to the trim in aluminium, carbon fibre or fine wood.
In keeping with tradition, there is an Edition1 version available at market launch, and this can be combined with all engines. The package price is 8211.00 euros*. This particularly exclusive and valuable model offers features including the AMG Exterior Line with AMG bumpers at the front and rear, 50.8 cm (20-inch) multi-spoke wheels, dark tinted glass all round from the B-pillar and “Edition 1” badges on the front wings. In the interior there are either the high-quality designo nappa leather appointments in fine black or two-tone platinum white pearl/black, with diamond-pattern quilting in each case.
The standard equipment already includes numerous details adopted from higher vehicle categories. Pioneering assistance systems such as COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, Crosswind Assist, Headlamp Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST or an ESP system with Dynamic Cornering Assist and the permanent all-wheel drive system 4MATIC all feature as standard, for example. Even more stress relief for the driver and safety for all the occupants comes courtesy of the optional latest-generation Driving Assistance package. Available on request and exclusively in this segment are the multi-chamber air suspension AIR BODY CONTROL, the extended driving dynamics program DYNAMIC SELECT and the Off-Road Engineering package with up to five specific off-road programs. They enhance both ride comfort and sporty agility – on any terrain.
