The new Mercedes-Benz GLC refers to the hybrid

The new Mercedes-Benz GLC refers to the hybrid

From heaven to earth. If this week Mercedes-Benz made us fly and dream of the new Mercedes-AMG, it is now landing us with the global presentation of the third generation of the GLC, its best-selling model in the world, with more than two million units. The premiere of the new GLC, which rivals the BW X3 and Audi Q5, brings electrification in all its versions as a cool new.

GLC is jointly developed by First introduced Class C (already in the country) and shares a large part of the technology and engine range and occupies the same MRA platform as the German brand, allowing for higher level electrical engineering. This is an SUV that promises dynamics never seen before at Mercedes-Benz.

On the outside, it retains most of its features and no major changes have been identified, but it has tall, inward-stopping headlights with a grille on most of the brand’s models. In general, the first-class SUV is appreciated and externally maintains the good results that it did last time.

One aspect that the third-generation GLC has been able to improve upon is the lowered drag coefficient to 0.29 instead of 0.31 in the previous model.

The dimensions are a little larger, which is not excessive, but there are slight changes, being only 60 mm in length and 15 mm in the wheelbase. Dimensions for this GLC are 4,720 mm long, 1,890 mm wide, 1,640 mm high and a wheelbase of 2,890 mm. The trunk, on its part, reaches 620 liters.

More about Presentations

The changes in the interior are more radical, at first glance there is a huge 11.9-inch vertical touch screen and 12.3-inch instrument panel. It also includes great driving aids such as adaptive cruise control that is able to respond to stopped vehicles on the road and travel at speeds of up to 100 km/h.

Another help is Lane Keeping Assist which works up to a speed of 210 km/h, plus it includes sign recognition capable of reading traffic lights from motorway gates

The full range will be available with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, linked to a nine-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive.

On the other hand, the GLC 200, 220d and 300 4MATIC are small hybrid vehicles that have a 48-volt alternator and deliver 23 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque. Powers range from 197 hp to 258 hp and torque range from 320 Nm to 440 Nm.

The remaining range, which is the GLC 300E, 300 DE 4MATIC and 400 E, has an electric motor with 136 hp and 440 Nm and a battery with a capacity of 31.2 kWh that gives them a range of 140 km. Total powers range from 313 to 381 hp, while torque ranges from 550 Nm to 750 Nm.
