The Mercedes GLC300 SUV is now available, and that means the former GLK’s spiritual heir is open to be test-driven and reviewed by industry critics. So far, everyone seems to love the GLC300, particularly focusing on its plush interior and luxurious driving experience. Plus, with a price tag of under $40,000 for the entry-level trim with rear-wheel drive, the GLC300 is unusually affordable for a member of the luxury SUV segment.
The large windows and thin pillars of the GLC300 provide excellent visibility and lend an extra air of spaciousness to the already roomy and comfortable interior, which offers premium comforts and amenities such as soft-touch, padded seats, and upscale insulation against wind and engine noise. Plus, since the GLC300 uses the luxury sedan C-Class as a base, that sensation of smooth, car-like maneuverability and performance extends to the SUV. It’s apparent that Mercedes didn’t hold back when making this masterpiece.
The Mercedes GLC300 SUV is, overall, highly customizable, with a number of standard and available features and luxuries. These include everything from standard forward collision warning with automatic brakes to optional leather seats, though the high-quality brown leatherette upholstery comes with the vehicle. That would be too good to pass up on.
Mercedes-Benz recently announced that the second-generation, mid-size 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV is on its way to dealerships, hitting lots in November of 2015. This new vehicle comes with many upgrades over the GLK model.
Visually, the new GLC will have similarities to other current Mercedes-Benz models, and it is larger in general, gaining two inches in width and five inches in length, which translates to a more spacious interior.
The GLC will boast many new features, including a power driver’s seat with memory, power folding mirrors, a rear-view camera, power tailgate, KEYLESS-Start, touch-pad, Collision Prevention Assist Plus (CPA+), pre-safe, crosswind stabilization, and an integrated garage door opener.
Plus, this upgraded SUV combines incredible power and impressive design, offering a smooth, seamless ride. Interested in learning more about this luxurious new SUV? Get in touch with us or visit us at Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead before the Mercedes-Benz GLC launch.
Just when you thought the GLC-Class AMG model couldn’t get any cooler, Mercedes-Benz announces it’ll be adding an AMG Sport variant in 2017. That’s right—the crossover that’ll be replacing the GLK-Class for 2016 will offer a tricked-out sport model that’ll combine utility, performance, and sheer excitement like never before.
The GLC-Class AMG model—also called the GLC450 AMG Sport—will be powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. While performance figures haven’t been released, we know that it’s the same engine found in the C450 and GLE450 AMG Sport models, both of which pump out 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. This should mean a top speed of 155 mph and a 0-to-60 time of just five seconds.
It’s also assumed that the GLC Coupe, which should make its debut around the same time as the GLC450 AMG Sport, will get its own AMG Sport variant. Only time will tell, and we here at Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead will be on the lookout for more news of these models ahead of their 2016 debuts!
