Updated Features for the 2017 GLC
The biggest news for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC was the addition of the GLC Coupe, expanding the options available for this premium model. The GLC Coupe is incredibly similar to the GLC SUV but with more rakish rear styling that resembles a traditional Mercedes-Benz Coupe. You will also notice that there is a new AMG® GLC 43 model, available as either an SUV or Coupe. The new Mercedes-AMG® GLC 43 runs on a 3-liter bi-turbocharged V6 that has been enhanced by AMG®. It has 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. For the SUV or Coupe variant, this model is capable of reach 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds.
In addition to the expansion of the available models and body styles, the 2017 GLC got some additional features, including standard wiring to connect the model to Garmin navigation. You can now get the infotainment system with the unique Mercedes-Benz touchpad control that makes life easier. Other additions include available LED headlights, a new Brilliant Blue exterior, and new Saddle Brown leather.
How the Current GLC Came to Be
Looking up the history of the Mercedes-Benz GLC will make you think that this is a completely new model with just two model years under its belt. In reality, however, the 2016 GLC was simply a rebranding of the familiar GLK, with a few changes to note. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC arrived as part of the brand’s new naming structure, with the “C” in the name indicating that this SUV lines up more closely with the “C-Class” models if you were to compare it to a sedan. With the naming change for the 2016 model year, Mercedes-Benz also made a few key updates to the 2015 GLK it was replacing. While the GLK may feel old fashioned, the GLC feels modern and stylish. Other noteworthy changes for the 2016 GLC’s new generation and name included a larger infotainment system, more interior space and cargo room, an automatic active suspension, an available 14 speaker system of Burmester sound, available Wi-Fi capabilities, and the available hands-free liftgate. The GLK already offered advanced driver-assistive and safety features.
You can get a better feel for how the Mercedes-Benz GLC evolved by looking at the GLK’s history. The GLK debuted during the 2008 Beijing Auto Show, so it only had a single generation. Its styling was strongly influenced by the C-Class, and it had extensive safety features, like nine airbags. There were also four different gas engines throughout its history, one of which was simply an improvement on the previous engine of the same size. There was an update in 2012, including a more efficient version of the GLK.
