Mercedes introduces the new GLC Coupé

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the latest addition to their line-up, the new GLC Coupé. The GLC Coupé builds on the success of the GLC SUV and adds a sleek, coupe-like design to create a sporty and elegant crossover.

As you would expect most of the differences from its bigger sibling are at the rear of the car. The new GLC Coupé has a more aggressive stance, with a lowered roofline and a wider track. This also helps reducing drag to a very acceptable value of 0,27Cd. The lower coefficient of drag also means less noise inside. The taillights have also been updated with a new light signature that is unique to the GLC Coupé. 

Its sporty and elegant look continues inside with the dashboard horizontally divided into two sections. One includes a 12,3 inch (31,2 cm) high-resolution LCD screen in front of the driver and a 11,9-inch (30,2 cm) central display rises from the centre console. The GLC Coupé also features Mercedes-Benz's latest MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) system, which includes an improved voice assistant, with optimised learning capabilities, music streaming, and Augmented Reality for navigation, among others.

Mechanically, Mercedes presents several electrified options. More specifically, 4 mild-hybrid and 3 plug-in models. depending on your choice they are combined with a four-cylinder petrol or diesel unit. In particular, Mercedes highlights the electric range of more than 100 kilometres for the plug-in hybrid versions. Depending on your choice, power goes from around 200 to almost 270hp.

Sales will start in Europe in July 2023.
