Meet the All-New Mercedes-Benz GLC

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most trusted and sought-after carmakers in the world. This is why you can expect nothing but the best from this brand. Such is the case when they announced a restructuring of model names to make letter designations more sensible. One of the many affected Benz cars include the medium-sized SUV GLK, which is now the new GLC.


The all-new GLC does not only have a new name, but also a completely new design and in-car technologies. It will come out as a 2016 model with really impeccable styling. It replaced the boxy appearance with a raked roofline at the rear hatch. One noticeable change in the GLC is its rear design, which looks a lot like an Audi or Infiniti SUV. The grill that sports a twin blade has been retained. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz GLC will have LED headlights, as well as automatic high beams that transition their throw patterns according to the ambient light and traffic.


In recent years, the German automaker has developed its Distronic adaptive cruise control that allows the car to nearly drive itself. This technology also has the feature that allow the vehicle to keep the car in the right lane. Owners of the new GLC will be more than happy with the perks that come along when buying this SUV, including sensor packages as well as cameras and radars that warn drivers of possible collisions to the front and rear.


The new GLC sits on a 4.6-inch longer wheelbase. It also gets around 3 more cubic feet of cargo space. It also runs on adjustable air suspension, setting the vehicle’s posture. This latest addition to the Mercedes-Benz will run on a 2.0-turbo engine with 241 horsepower at 5,500 RPM and 273-pound-feet of torque.

Dr. Uwe Ernstberger said, “We have quite literally taken off-road capability to a new level in this market segment… The GLC has a ground clearance of up to almost 0.9 inches.”
