Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is a compact luxury SUV introduced in 2015 for the 2016 model year that replaces the former Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.
Under the vehicle naming scheme maintained by Mercedes-Benz, SUV’s use the base name “GL”, followed by the model’s placement in Mercedes-Benz hierarchy. The “G” is for Geländewagen (German for off-road vehicle) and alludes the long-running G-Wagen. This is followed by the letter “L” that acts as a linkage with the letter “C”—the GLC being the SUV equivalent to the C-Class.
The GLC, like its predecessor, is currently assembled at Mercedes-Benz’ plant in Bremen, Germany. Since the main GLC production site in Bremen already runs at full capacity, Mercedes-Benz have decided to expand the production capacity by utilizing Valmet Automotive plant at Uusikaupunki, Finland. The manufacturing of the GLC will start in Finland during Q1/2017.
The GLC-Class is available in a five-door hatchback bodystyle with seating for five. Mercedes also offers a GLC Coupe, with four doors. In mainland Europe it is avaliable with three diesel engines, three petrol engines, and a plug-in hybrid. Meanwhile in britain only three diesels and one petrol AMG-model are offered.
Power comes from a choice of 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol (same engine combined with the electric engine in the 350e hybrid) and 2.2-liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel engines in various power stages mated to a 9-speed (7 speed for the 350e hybrid) G-Tronic automatic transmission. 4MATIC all-wheel-drive is standard in some markets and optional in others. The GLC is 183.3 in (4,656 mm) long, 74.4 i
