The most important facts about the new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé in brief

Agile and safe: Agility and handling stability are increased with the optional rear-axle steering, combined with a more direct steering ratio at the front axle. The steering angle at the rear axle is up to 4.5°. This reduces the turning circle by 90 centimetres, to 10.9 metres.

More avantgarde, edgy and design orientated
1. More avantgarde, edgy and design orientated.

Exterior design: The overall visual statement is defined by the sporty coupé silhouette. At first sight, it imparts a sense of elegance, dynamism and offroad adventure. Other characteristic elements include the simulated chrome under guard, the roof rails painted in black and the optional running boards. New contoured side edges make a model-specific statement. The headlights gently connect to the radiator grille, lending emphasis to the vehicle’s sporty, muscular look. In combination with the optional DIGITAL LIGHT, they feature daytime-driving ellipses. Another visual highlight is the radiator grille with the Mercedes-Benz pattern (standard).

Interior design: The GLC Coupé’s interior combines sportiness with contemporary styling, with the dashboard horizontally divided into two sections, generous trim surfaces, and a portrait-format central display that appears to float above them. The avant-garde seat design and door panels emphasise the high quality of the interior. For the first time the GLC Coupé is now offered with a Panoramic sunroof.

2. Active intelligence

Operating convenience: The Hey Mercedes voice assistant is even more responsive, with optimised learning capabilities. The MBUX Smart Home function turns the GLC Coupé into a mobile control centre for the networked home. The MBUX Voice Assistant is now enhanced with a new Mercedes me service – the “Tourguide” acoustic travel guide.

Entertainment: MBUX fully integrates all the major music streaming providers, including personal preferences and settings. The optional Burmester® surround sound system offers 15 premium speakers and a total output of 710 watts.

3. Sportier, more dynamic and driver focused.

Drive systems: GLC Coupé offers four-cylinder diesel units namely the GLC 220 d and GLC 300 d. These are mild-hybrid units with an integrated second-generation starter-generator (ISG).

Comfort and agility: The sports suspension and variable ratio steering are standard with the new GLC Coupé. Other components are a new four-link front axle system and a multi-link independent rear suspension with rear-mounted tie rod. This offsets lateral forces, which stabilises the handling characteristics. The AIRMATIC air suspension has variably adjustable damping for compression and rebound.

A strong performer both on and off the road: The GLC Coupé has significantly improved on- and off-road attributes for adverse weather conditions and stretches with unmetalled roads. These include simplified operation using the off-road screen, clearer information thanks to the “transparent bonnet” in conjunction with the optional 360° camera, and outstanding traction and handling safety by virtue of improved control systems. With the plug-in hybrids, fully electric off-road driving is possible.

Enhanced safety systems

Assistance systems: The latest generation of the Driving Assistance Plus package contains additional and improved functions, including Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Steering Assist and Traffic Sign Assist. Added functions are the Parking package with 360° camera and “transparent bonnet”, Memory Parking Assist and Trailer Manoeuvring Assist.

DIGITAL LIGHT: This headlight technology (optional) provides excellent light and additional functions such as the optional projection of auxiliary markings and warning symbols onto the road.

Comfort appointments: Improved components and systems include, among others, ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL, and ambient lighting. The new panoramic sunroof is 6 cm longer than in the GLC SUV.

Towing vehicle: The new trailer menu and makes it safer and more pleasant to operate a towing vehicle. Moreover, the 4MATIC all-wheel drive provides outstanding traction on any surface.
