The lean muscle of its body promises, and its athletic heart delivers. It’s an SUV, but with sport sedan reflexes, stamina and poise. The GLC fuses stylish with secure, refined with rugged, and innovative with inspiring as only a Mercedes-Benz can. The Star you can see is the soul you’ll feel.
The GLC is engineered, designed and crafted to raise the bar for midsize SUVs in safety, style and satisfaction. It’s been honed in the wind tunnel and on the track, for a muscular shape and performance to match. Its long wheelbase, wide doors and confident stance add to its stability and spaciousness, elevating driver confidence and passenger comfort. And its short overhangs, taut proportions, standard 19″ wheels and turbo or new AMG biturbo power add up to an SUV that’s nimble in the city, fun in the countryside, and an ideal blend of power, efficiency and style.
The GLC’s design delivers high function with heightened emotion. Its confident stance and lean muscle are detailed with an iconic grille, shapely headlamps and taillamps, and coupelike side windows. Low-profile roof rails feature a sleek aluminum finish, while skid plate inserts in the front and rear bumpers reflect its enduring quality and SUV purity. Standard and optional wheels are a sizable 19″ or 20″ (20″–21″ for the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC).
Stunningly Stylish Cabin
In form, feel, flow and function, the GLC sets a class standard for style and craftsmanship, even among larger and pricier SUVs. The wide sweeping console features driver-focused controls, a cascade of rich wood, and a sensuousness that continues throughout the cabin. Modern colour and trim options, elegant metallic finishes, and intuitive technologies create an environment that puts every element of driving enjoyment in harmony with you.
Exceptional Luxuries, Exquisitely Tailored
There’s something for all your senses in the GLC’s menu of innovative options, from handcrafted designo Nappa leather to heated front and rear seats. Rear-door sunshades add cool privacy, while a giant Panorama roof welcomes in the sun and stars. You can even enjoy ionizer-purified cabin air, and infuse it with subtle aromatheraphy.
Two Direct Injection Engines
Two state-of-the-art engines team high tech and turbo power to turn less fuel into more performance. The GLC 300 4MATIC’s 2.0-litre gasoline turbo four teams response with refinement. The AMG-enhanced biturbo gasoline V-6 in the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC generates 362 hp. The gas engines feature multispark ignition and Direct Injection that can fine-tune themselves with millisecond speed.
9-Speed Automatic Transmission
With more ratios yet shorter steps between gears, the new -speed shifts more quickly and smoothly. Along with its near-seamless performance, the lighter, more versatile transmission enhances quiet riding comfort and fuel-efficiency. The electronic selector and shift paddles let you control all gear changes with your hands on the steering wheel. And drivers can vary the shfit modes via the innovative DYNAMIC SELECT system.
4MATIC All-Wheel Drive
From winter’s wrath to a challenging corner, standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive adds driving confidence on any road, in any season. Its 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS) continually sends power to the wheels with the best grip, while its lightweight, nimble design enhances handling and fuel-efficiency year-round.
The Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 is deeply infused with the DNA of racing champions and the hardware to bring it to life: an agile suspension, sizable brakes, aggressive body work, 20″ AMG wheels, and exclusive cabin details. Its AMG-enhanced 362-hp V6 biturbo engine and paddle-shifted 9G-TRONIC 9-speed transmission can catapult you to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds. AMG Performance 4MATIC sends 69% of the engine’s 384 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, for surer launches and dexterous handling. AMG DYNAMIC SELECT’s five drive modes let you fine-tune performance settings – from the shift points to the damping settings of the AMG Sport Suspension based on AIR BODY CONTROL. Silver chrome accents in the AMG front and rear aprons complement the chrome-tipped diamond-block grille and gloss black side mirrors. GLC 43 options include a Head-Up display and an array of 20″ or 21″ AMG wheels.
The premium, sporty interior has standard equipment such as the three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel, red seat belts and brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs. Sports seats in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfiber, AMG floor mats in black with red edging and “AMG” lettering as well as red contrasting topstitching complete the high-quality overall appearance of the interior. The upper part of the dashboard and the beltlines in ARTICO man-made leather, controls in silver chrome and high-quality light longitudinal-grain aluminum trim add premium touches to the interior. An even more comprehensive lighting system for the interior, and improved visibility of the vehicle itself, are ensured by the Interior Light package with its indirect illumination of the footwells and handle recesses, LED rear reading lights and also courtesy and warning lights in the doors.
From its chrome-studded diamond-block grille, sculpted lower bodywork and sizable AMG wheels to its exquisitely detailed cockpit, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC elevates both luxury and any driver’s heart rate. AMG-design gauges and silver shift paddles greet your eyes and hands, while standard ARTICO man made leather and DINAMICA sport seats and red topstitching embrace you in style.
GLC 63 AMG
Provided by the AMG 4.0 litre V8 engine with 350 kW (476 hp) or 375 kW (510 hp) in the GLC 63 S and GLC 63 S Coupe variants. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds also impressively demonstrates: the new SUVs hold a special position in their market segment. The Performance SUVs also feature air spring suspension with adaptive adjustable damping, AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution, a rear-axle limited-slip differential and a high-performance braking system. As a visual indication of their links with Mercedes-AMG sports cars, the new models sport the AMG Panamericana grille, which was previously reserved for the AMG GT family. In addition, the new models offer all the advantages of a Mercedes-SUV: ample room for passengers and luggage, comprehensive array of safety equipment and superior traction, also in the wet or in wintry road conditions.
