Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class: stunning new mid-size SUV, available to order at Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire
Tackle the rough in confidence and savour the smooth in style aboard the sublime GLC – the UK’s first mid-sized SUV from Mercedes-Benz now available to order at Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire retailers.
Blending the rugged good looks and formidable capabilities of a 4×4 with the refinement and agile attributes of a saloon, this is a car that excels in every driving situation.
With 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive as standard, the GLC rises to the challenges of uneven road surfaces and testing conditions, whilst its duo of advanced four-cylinder diesel engines mated to the new 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission guarantee effortless and efficient progress on every journey.
Whatever the terrain, the result is a powerful, dynamic motoring experience that is further enhanced by a raft of sophisticated driver aids.
The GLC is the only model in its segment that features a chassis with a full-support multi-chamber air suspension system and electronically-controlled, continuously adjustable damping. Delivering the perfect ride, the AIR BODY CONTROL suspension enables the vehicle to maintain a constant level irrespective of the load thus ensuring supreme stability and sporty agility together with optimum comfort and outstanding off-road capabilities. It also lets you increase the ride height by up to 50mm too.
The DYNAMIC SELECT handling control system is another key feature which allows the owner to change the GLC’s driving mode according to the situation or even their mood. For example, ECO maximizes fuel economy whilst SPORT OR SPORT+ provides a more taut, agile drive.
More driving modes are afforded by the optional Off-Road Package, which makes sure that the GLC is fully prepared to take on any tough tests thrown down by nature, such as mountain trails and treacherous icy conditions. This formidable feature can also raise the suspension by 20mm for better ground clearance and includes a special off-road lighting function to help guide you when off the beaten track.
A successor to the GLK, which was not made available to the UK market, the GLC offers a 19 per cent improvement in fuel consumption despite its increased size. The SUV’s 118mm larger wheelbase creates more interior space for occupants as well as an enhanced cargo-carrying capacity, whilst at the same time, enhancing its sweeping and striking coupé-like profile.
Beneath its muscular exterior is a contemporary cabin that bristles with premium materials and state-of-the-art technology, which includes a comprehensive safety specification.
Amongst the standard equipment on offer is ARTICO leather upholstery, a tablet style display with touchpad controller, KEYLESS-GO start function, and a reversing camera, with would-be owners able to select from a trio of extensively-equipped model lines – SE, Sport and AMG Line.
Arriving to test drive at Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire in September 2015 and available to order now, the GLC will be available with a choice of two highly efficient diesel engines. The GLC 220 d 4MATIC and GLC 250 d 4MATIC will both return 56.5 mpg (combined) with CO2 emissions as low as 129 g/km, with the latter sprinting to 62mph from standstill in only 7.6 seconds whilst producing an impressive 500Nm of torque.
