The Mercedes-Benz GLC has been facelifted and now offers enhanced performance along with new driving assistance features.
The GLC is Mercedes-Benz’s contender in the luxury compact SUV segment.
Its rivals include the BMW X3 and Audi Q5.
Exterior-wise, the Mercedes-Benz GLC now has LED headlights as standard.
The rear bumper and tail-lights have also been redesigned.
New paintwork options include Graphite Grey, along with new aerodynamic wheels with sizes ranging from 17 inches to 19 inches.
Inside, new trim options include open-pore ash wood and walnut.
There are two new multi-function steering wheels to choose from.
The biggest update to the interior of the GLC is the new MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) system.
It lets users interact with the infotainment system using touch and voice commands, as well as gestures.
As seen in the latest Mercedes models, the instrument panel is now a high-resolution digital display.
The GLC will also have new, electrified drivetrains.
The GLC200 and GLC300, for instance, feature new turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, with outputs of 197hp/280Nm and 258hp and 370Nm, respectively.
The GLC200 and GLC300 are equipped with 9-speed automatic transmissions.
Both powerplants have twin-scroll turbochargers and 48-volt systems with belt-driven starter generators.
Another first for this SUV model is Dynamic Body Control, which means adaptive suspension that can adjust to road and driving conditions.
New safety functions include Active Steer Assist, Active Braking Assist and Active Lane Change Assist.
An Exit Warning function is also available.
When the vehicle is stopped, it warns occupants when they open the door and another vehicle or cyclist is approaching.
The refreshed Mercedes-Benz GLC will reach Singapore in the fourth quarter of 2019.
