The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé

18 Nov 2019

Sure to attract attention: just a few weeks after unveiling the GLC SUV, Mercedes-Benz is presenting the GLC Coupé. The next generation of the successful model skilfully and intricately combines the sportiness of a coupé with the functionality of an SUV. The result is a vehicle for individualists who attach maximum importance to extraordinary looks, the greatest possible freedom and pioneering technology. Innovative technologies, intelligent driving assistance systems and a new engine line-up make the Coupé a paragon of sportiness, safety and efficiency.  

Mesmerising coupé rear: Elegant design The GLC Coupé is characterised by its dynamic appearance and elegant lines. Hallmark off-road features include the dominant front end, powerful forms and standard-fit chrome details like the front and rear underride guards. Its coupé character shines through in the squat silhouette with the dropping roof line and rounded rear window. Highlights at the front end include the powerfully contoured diamond radiator grille with integrated star and single louvre typical of a coupé, complemented by the distinctive air intakes and the new contours of the standard-fit LED High Performance headlamps. The GLC Coupé shows how the design features of a coupé can be harmonised with those of an SUV with its dropping roof line, the greenhouse that fits perfectly into the silhouette and the feature line in combination with the eye-catching chrome strip on the high beltline, the muscular shoulders and the rearwards-ascending light-catching contour.  

Intelligence and convenience: The interior Flawless luxury and user-friendly controls abound in the Coupé’s interior. The focus is on the dashboard and the flowing lines of the centre console. The large, one-piece console panel sweeps elegantly from the centre air vents to the armrest. It has a premium feel and a build quality of exceptionally high calibre. The interior colour magma grey is completely new. The completely revised multifunction steering wheel is available in two versions. Its operation of Active Distance Assist Distronic and the Touch Control buttons for controlling the instrument cluster and the infotainment system as well as the acoustic input feedback set new standards. The multifunctional touchpad on the centre console improves operating convenience even further, and replaces the rotary pushbutton, while the infotainment system has larger touchscreen displays with optionally 12.3” in the instrument cluster plus the free-standing multimedia display in the centre is available in two sizes: 7” with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and 10.25 inches with 1920 x 720 pixels.  

The GLC Coupé at a glance Expressive design: The stylish appearance of the new Coupé generation encapsulates the Sensual Purity design philosophy and combines the flexibility of an SUV with the sense of style and sportiness of a Coupé. The A-pillars have a more pronounced slope, which lowers the roof silhouette.  

MBUX – Innovative telematics: The combination of the touchscreen displays, navigation with augmented reality, intelligent voice control via the talk button or the ‘Hey Mercedes’ prompt, connectivity and the user interface makes the GLC Coupé state of the art.  

Suspension: As an alternative to the standard sports suspension with adaptive damping, Dynamic Body Control with infinitely adjustable dampers for the steel springs on the front and rear axle is available as an option.  

Advanced assistance systems: Active Distance Assist Distronic provide even more comfortable support to help the driver to keep a safe distance. The speed is adjusted automatically ahead of bends or junctions. The risk of potential collisions can be reduced by the function of Active Brake Assist by braking if the driver fails to see oncoming traffic.  

Drive system: The GLC Coupé will be equipped with the next generation of four-cylinder petrol engines with increased output at significantly lower fuel consumption.
