The New GLC is All Business
The new GLC is in the starting blocks in a significantly more attractive guise, with enhanced engineering and improved equipment. Business customers can order the versatile SUV now with market launch having started in September 2015.
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, making it an ideal vehicle for low and high-mileage users alike. The GLC offers an unprecedentedly diverse range of equipment enabling business customers to configure their SUV according to their own requirements and preferences.
In keeping with tradition, there is an Edition1 version available as of September, and this can be combined with all engines. 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. If you want to travel in style, the Edition 1 GLC is certainly the car for you.
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.
In comparison to its predecessor (the GLK which was never released in the UK), the GLC is substantially more spacious for front and rear occupants alike. The increase in length in comparison to the GLK has been translated effectively into useful interior space. Almost all key comfort factors have been improved – substantially in some instances – above all the space on the rear bench.
Another comfort criterion – entry and exit space for the rear passengers – has also been enhanced substantially, with 34 millimetres more foot space now available for the purposes of entering and exiting the vehicle.
Through the effective use of space and intelligent packaging, the engineers have also managed to increase the size of the luggage compartment with level a load area and its attendant utility value substantially. The rear bench features a 40/20/40 split and offers a cargo position which increases the load capacity by locking the backrests at a steeper angle. The load capacity behind the rear bench increases by 80 to 110 litres, to a total of up to 580 litres. In all, the GLC is able to carry up to 1600 litres, perfect if your business relies on transportation of goods or passengers.
