Representing the next step forward in Mercedes-Benz’s proud tradition of building superior SUVs, the all-new 2016 GLC is more than just a new name—this captivating vehicle combines comfort and power, sportiness and eye-catching design, agility and safety. It’s the perfect vehicle for the modern driver who wants to have it all—with no sacrifices made—and the ideal successor to the GLK SUV.
Compared to its predecessor, which featured a look more typical of off-road vehicles, the new GLC is sensuous and sporty with a class-leading interior. This is a vehicle designed to appeal to the emotions—once you catch a glance of the new GLC SUV, you won’t be able to look away. The GLC blends the sportiness of Mercedes-Benz’s most recent coupes with the broad-shouldered, rugged masculinity of our larger vehicles. Every design element is anchored by a dominant front radiator grille that proudly displays the Mercedes brand star. Rather than continuing to build on the GLK’s more traditional look, Mercedes opted for a paradigm shift with the new GLC—this is a fully modern-looking vehicle that will attract jaw-dropping attention wherever it travels.
The GLC isn’t just beautiful on the outside, however—on the inside, luxury and comfort inhabit every surface and corner. From its open-pore wood trim to seats draped in Nappa leather, the all-new GLC is both opulent and cozy at once. There’s more space for passengers and cargo than ever before, so you can stretch your legs and load that extra bit of luggage. The optional panoramic glass roof allows for a unusually expansive glimpse of the world outside, and for the driver, a redesigned dashboard and center console offer clean lines and modern touches that exude a sense of control, comfort, and command. All of this combines to establish a new benchmark in its class.
Even better, none of these moves toward a more contemporary aesthetic have taken away from the all-new GLC’s thrilling capabilities as a sports utility vehicle. Featuring, for the first time ever, an all-new 9-speed dual clutch transmission—plus an efficient 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine capable of 241 horsepower—this is an SUV that’s equally at home cruising down the highway as it is rocketing its way through off-road conditions.
The all-new GLC is also higher, wider, and longer than its predecessor, with standard features that include a rear-view camera and an 8.4” COMAND screen with touchpad. The DYNAMIC SELECT control system allows drivers to choose between ECO, COMFORT, SPORT, SPORT+, and INDIVIDUAL driving programs, and the GLC’s new front-rear torque split allows for superior handling. Not to mention the AIR BODY CONTROL suspension system, which generates greater stability and agility—both on the road and off.
Perhaps most importantly, the all-new 2016 GLC SUV is safer than ever before. Using Mercedes-Benz’s Intelligent Drive concept, a combination of sensors and assistance systems work hard to keep drivers safe, even in challenging conditions. These systems include COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, ATTENTION ASSIST, Active Blind Spot Assist, and PRE-SAFE brake with pedestrian detection. A new Head-up Display provides drivers with relevant information while on the road, and the new GLC’s safety belt and airbag technologies are more advanced than ever.
An optional AMG sport package is also available. If you’re looking to upgrade your driving experience, there’s no time like the present. For more information or to schedule a test drive, please visit us or call your Benzel-Busch Account Representative today.
