Mercedes-Benz has ushered in a new era of luxury with the launch of the latest generation GLC in India. Building upon the immense popularity of its predecessor, the all-new GLC arrives in two captivating variants – GLC 300 4Matic and GLC 220d 4Matic.
Priced at an enticing Rs 73.50 lakh and Rs 74.50 lakh respectively (ex-showroom), this luxury mid-size SUV is a testament to Mercedes-Benz’s unwavering commitment to sophistication and innovation.
Exquisite Design Enhancements
Subtle yet striking design refinements grace the exterior of the new GLC. Drawing inspiration from the C-Class, the Avantgarde grille now boasts a wider profile, characterized by a singular, bold horizontal slat.
Chrome embellishments elegantly frame the air dam and windows, adding a touch of opulence. While maintaining the timeless silhouette, the GLC exhibits enhanced aerodynamics, accentuated by the inclusion of 5-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels.
Impressively, the new iteration is elongated by 60 mm compared to its predecessor, accompanied by a 15 mm lengthening of the wheelbase.
A Luxurious Haven
Stepping into the GLC is akin to entering a world of opulence and cutting-edge technology.
An expansive 11.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system serves as the centerpiece, replete with biometric authentication, intuitive voice commands, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, along with an all-encompassing 360-degree camera.
The auditory experience is elevated by a premium 15-speaker Burmester audio system.
Immerse yourself in the surroundings with a panoramic sunroof, indulge in personalized comfort through multi-zone climate control, and set the ambiance with the mesmerizing 64-color ambient lighting.
The GLC further integrates ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) functionalities, encompassing Active Brake Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Blind Spot Assist for enhanced safety.
Performance at its Pinnacle
Under the hood, the GLC 300 is powered by a robust 2.0-liter turbo-petrol engine, generating an impressive 255 Bhp at 5,800 rpm and 400 Nm at 2,000-3,000 rpm.
Meanwhile, the GLC 220d houses a commanding 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, churning out 195 Bhp at 3,800 rpm and a formidable 440 Nm at 1,800-2,800 rpm.
Both powerhouses are seamlessly coupled with a 9-speed G Tronic automatic transmission, delivering an exhilarating and refined driving experience.
