The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe resets the bar for the luxury SUV.
The GLC Coupe is engineered, designed and crafted to raise the bar for midsize SUVs in safety, style and satisfaction. It’s been honed in the wind tunnel and on the track, for a muscular shape and performance to match. Its long wheelbase, wide doors and confident stance add to its stability and spaciousness, elevating driver confidence and passenger comfort. And its short overhangs, taut proportions, standard 19″ wheels and turbo or new AMG biturbo power add up to an SUV that’s nimble in the city, fun in the countryside, and an ideal blend of power, efficiency and style.
The GLC Coupe’s design delivers high function with heightened emotion. Its confident stance and lean muscle are detailed with an iconic grille, shapely headlamps and taillamps, and coupelike side windows. Low-profile roof rails feature a sleek aluminum finish, while skid plate inserts in the front and rear bumpers reflect its enduring quality and SUV purity. Standard and optional wheels are a sizable 19″ or 20″ (20″–21″ for the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC).
Two state-of-the-art engines team high tech and turbo power to turn less fuel into more performance. The GLC 300 Coupe 4MATIC’s 2.0-litre gasoline turbo four teams response with refinement. The AMG-enhanced biturbo gasoline V-6 in the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC generates 362 hp. The gas engines feature multispark ignition and Direct Injection that can fine-tune themselves with millisecond speed.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position with 8-way power front seats. Soothing heating is standard, while a 3-position memory system and a new heated steering wheel are available. The roomy rear seat features a 40/20/40 split with remote folding via buttons in the spacious cargo area. Heated rear seats, a center armrest pass-through, and rear-door sun blinds are also available.
In addition to standard LED Daytime Running Lamps and taillamps, two LED headlamp options add powerful illumination and eye-catching style. Static-LED headlamps (standard on the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC) also include LED taillamps with a “twin torch” design. High-performance active-LED headlamps are available with Adaptive Highbeam Assist and Active Curve Illumination, to shine more light where you need it most.
The AMG-enhanced biturbo V-6 in the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC generates 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. Its rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection respond lightning quick, much like the paddle-shifted 9-speed with AMG programming. The red-striped engine cover signifies the impressive roster of AMG enhancements within, all ready to be unleashed by you.
