Mercedes GLC Coupe has already been unveiled this Spring at the New York motorshow. Plenty of time has passed though and no one has actually seen the car in real traffic. The wait is over, as Walko has now caught on video the production GLC Coupe.
The GLC Coupe has carried the design language of the show car presented in Shanghai in 2015 into production virtually unchanged as you can see in our exclusive presentation. With the new GLC Coupe, the Mercedes SUV line comprises seven model ranges from the compact GLA to the luxurious GLS.
The car filmed by Walko is a GLC 300 Coupe. The four-cylinder in the GLC 300 delivers 245 hp and moves the solid 1.8 tonnes effortlessly. Mercedes expects the two-liter turbo engine, to sell particularly well especially in China and the US. In Germany, however, probably the GLC 220d will be aggregate in the greatest demand.
At the upper end of the line-up you can find the six-cylinder diesel (350d) with 258 hp and 620 Nm of torque. In addition, there will also be the hybrid version 350e with 211-Nitro-hp plus 115 horsepower developed by an additional electric engine. The sports spearhead will be the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupé with V6 Bi-Turbo and 367 hp.
Transmission-wise, the GLC Coupe will be offered only alongside the high-tech 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic transmission, for all engines. Likewise Mercedes consistently focuses on the all-wheel drive 4Matic. Only the gasoline entry-level version GLC 200 (184 hp) will come with rear wheel drive and six-speed manual transmission.
