Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 e 4MATIC: Freedom in its most versatile form

The Mercedes-Benz GLC is in its element on any terrain. This mid-size SUV is an intelligent combination of functionality and agility in a modern design. This model offers outstanding comfort and functionality with its spacious interior. By virtue of these all-round qualities, the GLC is attractive to customers who wish to drive a highly versatile premium SUV. The new model year sees the GLC boasting an even more striking design, the intuitive MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system and state-of-the-art driving assistance systems. In the new GLC 300 e 4MATIC (weighted fuel consumption: 2.5-2.2 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions: 57-51 g/km, weighted power consumption: 17.8-16.5 kWh/100 km),[1] customers must only accept slight compromises in luggage capacity. As an all-wheel drive SUV, the GLC 300 e is also predestined for towing, as it has a towing capacity of 2000 kg (braked).

The exterior design is characterised by sporty features. A distinctive off-road look is accentuated by muscular surface contours and striking details such as the chrome trim that now continues from the front end to the rear as standard, and by the heavily contoured radiator grille. The GLC now has LED High Performance headlamps as standard. Their contours have been significantly changed, and they are now smaller and flatter. This makes the torch-like outline of the daytime driving lights even more prominent, and the typical Mercedes-Benz light signature even more recognisable. MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are available as optional equipment. Redesigned all-LED tail lights are also included as standard.

From the very start, the GLC was designed for space-saving integration of a battery. This is assisted by the lowered rear axle and a bodyshell designed for battery integration. The result is a large, level luggage compartment whose capacity of 395-1445 litres is only just below that of other GLCs.
