The new Mercedes-Benz GLC is a testament to contemporary luxury that is ready for any terrain and merges effortless design with superior power and performance. Powered by the 9G-TRONIC, this revolutionary transmission system is the world’s first 9-speed automatic transmission in the premium segment that can be used with longitudinally mounted engines.
With the Air Body Control air suspension system, driving the new GLC feels like traveling on air as it ensures outstanding ride comfort even when the vehicle is fully laden, and through the automatic height regulations, depending on the current speed, the fuel consumption can be reduced and handling safety improved. This smoothness will be a welcomed change from the rugged nature of some of the pit stops in the Mercedes-Benz Challenge.
The interior of the new Mercedes-Benz GLC reflects the company’s commitment to perfect and intuitive design. With the GLC’s Dynamic Select System that enables the selection of various drive modes and intelligent on-board systems, customizing the GLC driving experience becomes second nature. With one of the most spacious load compartments in this segment, the new GLC is ready for adventures of any kind.
