Setting a new standard for midsize SUV luxury, performance and innovation
The midsize 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV (formerly known as the GLK-Class) reaches new heights in safety, driver-assist innovations and world-class refinement. Combining the ultimate in driving comfort with sporting appeal, the all-new 2016 GLC SUV, like every Mercedes-Benz, offers a remarkable driving experience.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC® (MSRP $44,950) features a turbocharged 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder engine. Powerful and efficient, the four-cylinder sends 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. An advanced nine-speed automatic transmission delivers outstanding efficiency while optimizing engine torque for exhilarating acceleration.
The modern, sophisticated design of the sleek 2016 GLC SUV was inspired by the GLC Coupe concept car. A prominent three-dimensional grille displays the iconic Mercedes-Benz star and is flanked by eye-catching LED headlamps. Reinforcing the off-road capability of the GLC SUV are available side running boards, wheels up to 20-inches in diameter, short overhangs, rugged bumpers and an impressive 28 degree departure angle. The 2016 GLC SUV sports broad, muscular shoulders and split LED tail lamps, as well.
Those who want to add a more athletic edge to their 2016 GLC SUV can choose the Sport Package, which features exclusive 19-inch wheels AMG® alloy wheels, an AMG Styling Package, and an AMG Exterior Package.
In the cabin, handcrafted Nappa leather, open pore wood trim and an available panoramic glass roof with electric sunshade create an atmosphere of sporty luxury. Featuring single-piece construction, the new dashboard sweeps seamlessly from the centre air vents to the armrests, lending a feeling of modern, pure open space. A new touchpad that supports intuitive finger gestures similar to those used with a Smartphone sits in the centre console.
The five-passenger 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV is significantly roomier than its predecessor. Rear-seat occupants benefit from over 55 mm more legroom and easier ingress and egress, and thanks to more efficient use of space, the rear cargo area is also bigger. The 40/20/40-split/folding second row offers cargo and passenger carrying versatility.
For easier loading of cargo, the segment-exclusive available AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension system can lower the body by 40 mm, while the HANDS-FREE ACCESS system enables you to open the tailgate with a swipe of a foot under the rear bumper. Additional benefits of the AIR BODY CONTROL system are more efficient on-road driving performance and increased off-road capability. Driving dynamics in the 2016 GLC SUV are further enhanced by DYNAMIC SELECT, which gives drivers a choice of “ECO,” “COMFORT,” “SPORT,” “SPORT+” and “INDIVIDUAL” driving modes.
Like every Mercedes-Benz, the 2016 GLC SUV offers the most advanced driver assistance innovations available. A comprehensive, sensor-driven suite of technologies that includes COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS is standard. An available Intelligent Drive Package adds Active Blind Spot Assist; Active Lane Keeping Assist; and DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist, as well as PRE-SAFE PLUS for rear end collisions and BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist. There’s a 360-degree camera for better visibility.
The all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV offers a tighter blend of sportiness and SUV capability – it drives with car-like agility yet sacrifices nothing in off-road capability. It sets a new standard for midsize SUVs, and thanks to its unmatched refinement, the 2016 GLC SUV will appeal to even the most discerning luxury vehicle shopper.
