And few SUVs deliver like the GLC, one of the top-selling Mercedes-Benz vehicles. For 2023, we launch an all-new version, with striking new looks inside and out, an electrified engine, ingenious new technologies, and features that make driving more enjoyable than ever.
Beneath the hood is a new 4-cylinder engine with an integrated starter-generator, an innovation that adds intervals of power to an already muscular drive. This feature also delivers hybrid levels of fuel efficiencyDisclaimer, allowing the vehicle to “sail,” or drive without calling on the combustion engine.
Agile handling further enhances the ride, through a suspension that provides the foundation for all-around comfort. The GLC delivers a more spacious interior than its predecessors and new levels of noise comfort, thanks to both improved aerodynamics and bodyshell and windshield insulation. Standard luxuries include large media displays, wireless charging, heated front seats, ambient lighting and biometric authentication.
Also standard is the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system, which uses artificial intelligence to help control vehicle functions in several ways, including Voice Control and Touch Control. It’s now more intuitive than ever, understanding a greater array of natural language commands using its “Hey Mercedes” function. The latest Driver Assistance featuresDisclaimer, including a 360-degree Surround View SystemDisclaimer for effortless parking, round out this formidable advance in intelligence.
But for all these refinements and luxuries, this GLC was designed for riding the rough. In its 4MATIC® variantDisclaimer, the SUV includes Downhill Speed Regulation and an off-road driving mode as standard. In this mode, the GLC’s Surround View SystemDisclaimer enables a “transparent hood,” giving the driver a virtual view under the front of the vehicle so rocks and holes can be navigated in advanceDisclaimer. It’s capability taken to a new level altogether.
