Mercedes-Benz India has launched the GLC Coupe. The refreshed model is made at the company’s Chakan plant. It is available in a 300d and 300 petrol versions. It has BS6 engines and it is the first time that there is an option as far as powertrains are concerned. Bookings are underway and deliveries are expected in next month.
What’s new in the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe?
The design is fresh. In terms of technical processes, Mercedes-Benz uses advanced body building techniques for joining and welding multiple body weight reducing alloys. There are standard chrome detailing on the grille, multibeam LED headlights, new diffuser as well as tail lights.
The cabin too has been revamped. In addition to this, the latest generation of the MBUX infotainment system boasts intuitive logic and a wide range of control options. There are five different ways to interact with the GLC’s infotainment system including touch. The Mercedes ME app ensures that customers can remote start their vehicle or lock it through their smartphones.
There is a choice of four cylinder petrol and diesel engines in BS6 configuration. The 2.0-litre diesel engine produces 245PS of power and 500Nm. The gearbox is a 9-speed automatic and there are different drive modes for this all-wheel drive car. Mercedes-Benz claims a fuel efficiency of 16.3kmpl. As for the petrol, it is again a 2.0-litre unit that pumps out 258PS/370Nm. Both the engines have a sub 7s 0-100kmph time. The fuel economy, claimed, of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe petrol is 12.7kmpl and the gearbox is a 9-speed automatic.
We can only think of the Porsche Macan and the BMW X4 as the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe rivals.
