Mercedes Benz Launch the New GLC in India

The GLC is the mid-sized SUV from Mercedes Benz. It is one of the more popular models sold in SUV crazed India. Mercedes Benz manufacture the model in India and have launched the new generation GLC. The main developments have been introduced in the area of connectivity, navigation and user interface.

The GLC is offered in India with four cylinder engines. GLC is available with both Petrol (GLC 200) and diesel (GLC 220 d) engine options. The GLC 200 is powered by an inline 4 cylinder engine producing 197 BHP of power and 320 N-m of torque. It can do a 0-100 sprint in 7.8 seconds. Mercedes claims a fuel efficiency figure of 7.4 to 7.1 litres/ 100 Km (14.08 to 13.51 km/l). On the other hand the diesel powered GLC 220d is powered by an inline four cylinder engine producing 194 BHP of power and 400 N-m of torque. This car is just 0.1 second slower to 100 km/h from a stand still as compared to the petrol version. However, the fuel efficiency figures are much better at 5.5 to 5.2 litres/ 100 km (19.23 to 18.18 km/l).

The interiors are endowed with 64 colours for the ambient lighting, a new steering wheel with touch buttons, a walnut open pore wood trim, wireless charging for phones in the front and music system from Midline. The main change is the integration of the what3word navigation system with the Mercedes Benz User Experience (MBUX) system. The system has better response to voice control and understands normal spoken language thus overcoming the need to learn specific phrases to interact with the system. In addition to voice, the driver can interact with the MBUX using gestures as well as touch.

Outside the car retains the pleasing shape of the Mercedes GLC with added dose of chrome across the length of the car and in the scuff plates. The bumpers have undergone subtle redesign. The headlamps are full LED and are sleeker thanks to smaller LED stacked in two rows.
