What are the features of the Mercedes-Benz GLC?
Sharing its chassis with the new C-Class, the GLC is 4 mm longer, while the track at the front and rear have also been widened slightly. The boot benefits from the increased rear overhang and has grown by 50 litres. Compared to its predecessor, the new GLC also gains two hundredths in terms of drag coefficient: it drops below 0.30.
The 31.2 kWh high-voltage battery, combined with more efficient energy recovery and improved aerodynamics, deliver an electric driving range of over 100 kilometres - a record in this segment.
The two plug-in hybrid versions rely on a petrol engine for support, the third on a diesel. The maximum torque of 440 Nm from the electric motor is available instantly, resulting in great liveliness when starting off. The full electric power is available up to a maximum speed of 140 km/h.
The dashboard seems to come straight from the C-Class. The upper section has a wing-like profile with flattened circular fans reminiscent of airliner engines. The lower section has generous surfaces that flow harmoniously into the curved centre console. In front of the driver is a free-standing high-resolution LCD. This driver's display is 12.3 inches in size and can be personalised extensively. The central 11.9-inch display in portrait orientation is the heart of the MBUX infotainment system.
