Mercedes-Benz GLC has been spotted by Mr Orion Samuel, leaving nothing to be made by imagination. The GLC-Class has been built ground-up and will be replacing the GLK-Class.

The GLK-Class was made on a separate platform and the new GLC-Class has been designed on the C-Class platform.

The GLC has more of a crossover design, while the GLK was a rugged-looking SUV.


The GLC-Class will be coming with 200, 250 and 300 variants to start off with, the latter versions being 4MATIC. The interiors have been derived from the C-Class and it is more like a crossover version of the C-Class. The same round AC vents, with the new-generation steering wheel and instrument cluster. There is also the touchpad that is offered on the GLC as well. Mercedes-Benz states that this will have the off-road abilities like that of the GLK-Class.


The current-generation was designed only for left-hand drive markets and that is one reason why it couldn’t make its way into India. Mercedes-Benz has plans to introduce the GLC in India but sometime in 2016. The GLC will sit between the GLA and the GLE (coming to India by this August). As the C-Class is already assembled in India with 60% localisation the GLC will also be assembled in the Chakan plant. It will be coming with the 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engine options for India. The GLC will also get an AMG version, where it will be powered by the 4.0-litre V8 AMG engine. This new 4.0-litre engine has been replacing most of the currently used 5.5-litre engine and will reduce the carbon footprint of Mercedes-Benz cars.
