- Follows the reveal of the GLC at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
- Available with five engine options, but the India-bound 43 AMG guise will arrive later.
Just a couple of weeks after the reveal of the updated GLC, Mercedes-Benz has now taken the wraps off the GLC Coupe. Carrying forward all the design details from the mid-life update of the standard GLC, the Coupe carries forward the chic rear with sloping roofline, reworked diffuser, angular exhaust tips and sleeker taillight cluster.
Up front, there aren’t any changes to differentiate the Coupe from the standard car. But beyond the B-pillar, the rear is unmistakably that of a Three-Pointed coupe-SUV. There are chrome details on the front and rear underride guards, a squat silhouette but it doesn’t get frameless doors to accentuate the coupe feel. The large alloy wheels also look the part on the GLC Coupe.
On the inside, the cabin is utterly modern as previewed in the GLC at the Geneva stage. The new multifunction steering wheel is complemented by the new 10.25-inch floating infotainment screen which ‘sticks out’ of the centre console apart from the all-digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster. In addition to this, the latest generation of the MBUX Mercedes-Benz User Experience is present as well.
Under the hood of the GLC Coupe are the same powertrain options as the previous model. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged motor has been revised and now puts out 255bhp and 370Nm in the 300 4MATIC guise and 197bhp and 320Nm in the 2004MATIC guise. There is a diesel motor, as well, with power output ranging from 160 to 245bhp. The petrol engines get a 48-volt onboard electrical system (EQ Boost) too. But the bigger AMG variant will arrive at a later date, among which, the 43 AMG will surely come to India immediately after its global debut.
