In case that you are a true and devoted car lover (as we are) and if you are obsessed with the launching of new vehicles (like we are) then you are familiar with the fact that newly made Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is, originally, created in order to present an adequate replacement for the utterly famous Mercedes-Benz GLK. This outdated variant, up until recently, presented the smallest but, at the same time, among the most affordable vehicles that the Bavarian car manufacturer had ever made.
Interior, Exterior & Appearance
Although Mercedes-Benz has truly revitalized its product lineup, over the past several years, by adding a wide variety of modifications and upgrades, in order to achieve a certain level of refreshment and to boost its overall sales, however, the vast majority of them proved to be inefficient, so the Bavarian car maker decided that now presents just the right time to launch on a global car market, their all-new made 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC as a part of a midsize crossover lineup.
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Exterior
We have, already, pointed out that this newly made variant will serve as a kind of the substitution of the Mercedes-Benz GLK (a small and a bit boxy-shaped SUV that would reminisce a bit on the awkward tiger cub, when being ordered in pair with 20-inch wheels :-)). So, the acronym GCL stands for aligning with the latest Mercedes-Benz alphanumeric labeling convention (GL) and “C” stands as a mark the C-Class sedan. Got the picture? 🙂
When being compared to its predecessor, newly made variant will have a couple of differences: it will come standard equipped with steel springs coupled with some electronically managed adaptive shocks, optional air suspension will be added and will be available per customer’s request, only; 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC will be slightly lighter and a bit larger, despite its voluminous shell. The lightness of a newly designed GLC will possess thanks its lightweight unibody (which is planned to be made of an interesting mix, lightweight aluminum and high-strength steel parts).
Interior of Mercedes-Benz GLC 2016
When we take into our consideration the interior design, although it is planned to say specious and built of the highest-quality materials, only, but we are convinced that you will consider the wide range of the most various hi-tech and safety features for the most interesting and the most relevant ones.
Among all, certainly, the most striking ones that will be at your disposal are the following ones: Bluetooth, USB connectivity, a heated steering wheel, concert-hall Burmester sound, heated rear seats, Frontbass and, even, the Fragrancing system that had, already, its debut on the S-Class. It is intended also, that newly made 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC comes along with a wide range of appearance options, such as: an AMG Line model, wheels ranging up to 20 inches, ‘design’ boutique-look packages that will come along matched with a Night Package that is going to bring down the chrome factor with plenty of gloss black and many, many more.
New Mercedes-Benz GLC Engine
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC range will include a really wide range of the most various cars and every single one of them will come along with a single powerplant option, which will be available matched with a specific transmission. We will give the best of ourselves, in order to count as many as we can. For a start, a 241-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine option coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission will be the first of three powertrains, which is planned to be available in the U.S.
These petrol options further will be filled with diesel and hybrid options that will join this lineup in 2016. The first a diesel-powered oriented engine option will be a 2.1-liter four, which general strength has, already, been estimated at generating about 204 hp and 368 lb-ft. While, under the hood of the GLC350e plug-in will be placed an electric motor that will be able to pump up to a 114 hp and 251 lb-ft, which will be pared with an 8.8-kw lithium-ion battery and a conventional seven-speed automatic.
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Release Date & Prices
And the price is expected to vary, depending on the exact opted trim level. It will come in a range between $39,875 and $60,000 and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC will come available for sales this November.
