On the outside, the main developments are to be noted on the side of the LED headlights, taillights and bumpers, while from the AMG line the wheel arches can be painted in body color.

The new GLC is also more aerodynamic (the Cd goes from 0.31 to 0.29), longer (6 cm) and more habitable thanks to a wheelbase lengthened by 1.5 cm (saving space in the rear and larger trunk).

Inside, there are two separate screens.

A 12.3-inch behind the steering wheel and another, tactile, 11.9-inch on the center console, slightly inclined towards the driver.

Obviously, the new GLC also benefits from the second generation of the MBUX infotainment system, with the latest in artificial intelligence, connectivity and control.

only hybrids

Six versions are offered, all with a 2-litre 4-cylinder.

First three mild hybrids, with a 48 V system and a second-generation starter alternator that provides an additional 23 hp and 200 Nm.

Then three plug-in hybrids for which Mercedes announces more than 100 km of electric range.

The plug-in engines come as standard with the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system and the 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox.

As an option, the GLC will be able to have a directional rear axle.

Surprisingly, Mercedes continues to offer a diesel-powered plug-in hybrid variant.

The prices are not yet known.

They will be announced during the summer while marketing is planned for the end of the year.
