New week, new SUV in sight. Mercedes-Benz’s GLC compact model has unveiled a new generation, offering an evolutionary approach as the automaker focuses on electrifying its models.
Still proudly sporting the huge star in the center of its grille, this GLC fits effortlessly into the brand’s portfolio with its organic and rather smooth shapes. It is also rather aerodynamic, with a coefficient of 0.29 Cx, even better than its predecessor. It is also 6 cm longer than the latter, which increases the loading volume by 50 L for 600 L in all.
The Canadian version will be offered in the preamble with a 255 hp 2.0L turbo four-cylinder mild hybrid mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard.
This new GLC is also equipped with the latest generation of the MBUX multimedia system operating on two large screens for instrumentation and navigation.
For those interested, the first copies will arrive in the spring of 2023, however. Another sign that the industry is trying somehow to negotiate with supply problems.
