The inclined customers are in line in the car dealerships with the star and with a sharp eye, the great demand is eyed, especially in Zuffenhausen, Munich and Ingolstadt.While Audi still has nothing to oppose a Mercedes GLC Coupe, the position at the Munich Petuelring is clearly commodity. Because BMW first set a trend with the X6 and then with the smaller X4, over which the competitors once could only twist the eyes.
4.73 meters long, X4 in sight
Mercedes now adds with the GLC Coupe and is also sending a little brother of the successful GLE coupe into the sporty segment of the SUV Coupes.
Mercedes Benz The rear window in the rearview mirror is more like a shooting range
The 4.73-meter-long Mercedes GLC Coupe does not offer more car than the normal GLC, but it gives its customers the opportunity to stand out from the widespread and indefinable SUV mass, without foregoing a practical everyday benefit.
(Almost) as much space as in normal GLC
While the wheelbase and width remain the same, the Coupe variant of the GLC is 7.6 centimeters longer and 3.8 centimeters flatter without restricting the head space in the rear. The cargo space offers the inmates with a volume between 491 and 1405 liters 59 to 195 liters less than the normal GLC, but gives them enough opportunities for flexible load transport. With simple steps, the back seat can be folded up in a ratio of 40:20:40 and the tailgate opens electrically.
Mercedes Benz The workplace of the new Mercedes GLC
Behind the wheel, the Mercedes GLC Coupe can be clearly noted in the close technical descent of C and E-Class despite the increased ground clearance to 18 centimeters. The more direct steering translation and the tighter chassis vote of the standard steel suspension including multi-steering axes can be accepted, which, despite the multi-weight of 20 to 70 kilograms in relation to competitors such as BMW X4 or Jaguar F-Pace, noticeably brings more sportiness. If you want more variation options, you can optionally equip the GLC Coupe with variable shock absorbers or even air suspension, which means that the setting options of the driving programs are not only limited to engine control, gear selection and steering translation.
Mercedes’ answer to the BMW X6!
Site Mercedes’ answer to the BMW X6!
Apart from the following entry model Mercedes GLC 200d Coupe with thin 136 hp, all models are equipped with a stable all-wheel drive, the 4MATIC-typical engine output is transferred to the front and 55 percent to the rear axle. The static all-wheel drive is combined with the discreetly working in the background.
Plug-in hybrid with 320 hp
Only the 320 hp plug-in hybrid of the GLC 350E Coupe has to make do with the elderly seven-speed automatic in driving. Two important upgrades behind the wheel of the newcomer particularly likes: the electronic traction control ETS works much faster and sensitive than before and the head-up display projects the most important journey into the pilot’s field of field.
Mercedes Benz The GLC Coupe reacts handy and agile, through a bending of all kinds as on rails
Anyone who can do without a powerful six -cylinder in this league, For this the Mercedes GLC 250D 4MATIC with its charged four -cylinder diesel the right choice. In contrast to the four-cylinder diesels of the new E-Class, the engine with a well-known 150 kW / 204 hp still comes from the expiring engine generation of 2.1 liters of self. Low -noise and vibrations leave some wishes open, but the power delivery is extremely strong at 500 Nm maximum torque from 1600 rpm. 0 to 100 km/h, the all -wheel drive manages in 7.6 seconds and his zest for action disappears at 222 km/h. Instead of the promised 5.2 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers, you should consistently calculate with more than seven liters. If you want real sportiness, you cannot avoid the 258 hp V6 diesel of the GLC 350D Coupe or the AMG light model of the GLC 43 Coupe with 367 hp.
Andreas Lindlahr Mercedes GLC 250D Coupe – the standard consumption is just over five liters
The basic prices for the 170 hp Mercedes GLC 220d Coupe and the 211 hp petrol engine of the GLC 250 are almost 50.000 euros; That is around 5.000 euros more than the normal GLC.
High price, ordinary equipment
After all, there are standard drafts such as electrical tailgate, reversing camera and 18-incher. Another 1.300 euros in money for the stronger Mercedes GLC 250D with its 204 hp are well laid out, even if the standard equipment has too many gaps in these models, which can only be closed with a deep handle in the surcharge box. With the usual equipment is less than 60.000 euros for a Mercedes GLC nothing to do.
