Prices and specification revealed for facelifted Mercedes-Benz GLC
Mercedes-Benz has revealed specification and prices for the new GLC, starting at £39,420 for the 220 d 4MATIC Sport.
Apart from revised LED lights and grille, other highlights of the facelifted Mercedes-Benz GLC range are the new engines that power 220 d and 300 d diesel.
The GLC 220 d is fitted with a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, producing 194hp and 400Nm of torque. Yet, this SUV can still achieve 40.9mpg on the combined cycle and emits 137g/km of CO2. Go for the GLC Coupé, and this model is capable of 41.5 combined mpg and emits 145g/km of CO2.
The GLC 300 d is also powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, this time with 245hp and 500Nm of torque. However, this GLC delivers up to 39.2mpg on the combined cycle and emits just 157g/km of CO2. Go for the Coupé, and it can achieve 39.8 combined mpg, while emitting 159g/km of CO2.
Most important from a fleet point of view, is that both these new diesels are RDE2 Emission Compliant, thus meaning they’re not subject to the usual 4% surcharge on BiK or increased first year VED.
The GLC 220 d 4MATIC SUV is available in Sport, AMG Line and AMG Line Premium trims, while the GLC 220 d 4MATIC Coupé is available in AMG Line and AMG Line Premium trims. The GLC 300 d 4MATIC SUV and Coupé are available in three model lines: AMG Line Premium, AMG Line Premium Plus and AMG Line Premium Plus Ultimate.
Fleet World has driven the GLC 300 d at its international launch and will bring you driving impressions as soon as the embargo lifts.
