The Mercedes GLC is available now with the OM 656 M six-cylinder inline diesel engine equipped with a 48V mild hybrid system developing 367 PS + 23 PS from the integrated starter generator. Thus, the Mercedes GLC 450 d 4Matic offers top performance, accelerating from 0 to 100 kph in only 4.7 seconds, while the WLTP fuel consumption is only 6.3 l/100 km. It costs 78,195 euros, making it 10,000 euros more expensive than the GLC 300 d 4Matic version.
Compared to the GLC 300 d 4Matic, the Mercedes GLC 450 d 4Matic has almost 100 more ps (367 ps compared to 269 ps) and 200 Nm more (750 Nm available from 1,350 to 2,800 rpm compared to 550 Nm from 1,800 to 2,200 rpm), accelerates 1.6 seconds faster to 100 kph (4.7 compared to 6.3 seconds), and has a top speed of 250 kph compared to 243 kph in the GLC 300 d 4Matic.
The same level of performance is offered by the SUV-coupe version of the Mercedes GLC 450 d 4Matic Coupe, which is priced at 85,323 euros, being over 8,000 euros more expensive than the SUV version.
The price difference is not only due to the more powerful engine with two extra cylinders, but also to more equipments.

But the Technology package with air suspension and integral steering is still optional and costs 3,320 euros as with the other versions.
