The All New Mercedes Benz GLC

The 2023 Mercedes Benz GLC is the next generation Mercedes entry in to the luxury mid-size SUV market.

“The new GLC comes with all the attributes that make a Mercedes-Benz SUV what it is: uncompromising handling safety on the road, outstanding driving dynamics, and superior performance when off-road,” said Jörg Bartels, Head of Overall Vehicle Integration, Mercedes-Benz. “With its high level of ride comfort and convincing overall acoustics, the GLC is a superb long-distance companion and great fun to drive.”

What’s New

It’s an all new model that uses the Modular Rear Architecture (MRA) that is standard on the latest C-Class sedan. It has a new façade with new LED headlamps, 18 or 20 inch alloy wheel design and new three dimensional tail lamps. The new GLC has 21.9 cubic feet of cargo space and more than enough legroom and elbow room.


The 2023 GLC has a turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder with 258hp and 295lb-ft of torque. It has a mild hybrid system with an integrated starter generator (ISG) that adds 23 more horsepower with 148 lb-ft of torque on demand. The ISG helps improve road performance while reducing fuel consumption. Equipped with a nine-speed automatic the GLC has a front wheel drivetrain and the GLC 4matic is all wheel drive.

The Cabin and Infotainment

The cabin adds a touch class to the GLC. The redesigned air vents are “reminiscent of the engine nacelles of an aircraft”, said Mercedes Benz. It has an 11.9 inch center touchscreen and the driver has a new 12.3 inch high resolution LCD screen.
The MBUX system has a voice assistant, wireless Apple Car Play and Android Auto connectivity, a Newsflash feature an online music service and car support over-the –air updates.

The interior includes a new steering wheel, digital infotainment and HVAC controls, heated front seats with memory settings, ambient lighting, a power sunroof, and a power-operated liftgate. In addition, the new GLC has a “transparent hood” feature that displays a virtual view of the front underside on the center display, helping drivers see obstacles while off-roading. The system uses a 360-degree camera and offers two views: under or ahead of the vehicle. This feature is included on the GLC300 4MATIC with the optional parking package.

Also, Mercedes-Benz highlights the new GLC’s acoustically optimized body and advanced sound insulation. Underneath its svelte body is an upper structure filled with acoustic foam and hot-formed steel to eliminate noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH). The windshield has an acoustic membrane, while the driver’s door features laminated glass.


It’s a Mercedes so safety is always paramount. Advanced technology includes a Distronic feature that automatically maintains a preset distance from the vehicles ahead of you. The new GLC also has active steering assist, traffic sign assist and an optional parking package with a 360 degree camera and active parking assist.

Also available is a Digital Light feature with projection functions. This offers an additional layer of safety by highlighting pedestrians on the road and projecting light signals to others on the road.

Mercedes Benz The Best Or Nothing.”
