Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has introduced the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC Coupé. As the sporty counterpart of the GLC SUV, it completes the lineup of best-selling Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
The GLC Coupé strikes a harmonious balance between sporty performance and high efficiency. It incorporates mild hybrid technology with 48-volt systems and an integrated starter-generator, providing an additional boost and energy recuperation. Off-road capabilities are enhanced with the 4MATIC all-wheel drive, while features like the off-road screen and the “transparent bonnet” as part of the 360° camera system improve driving comfort, aiding drivers in confidently navigating obstacles.
The distinct feature of the all-new GLC Coupé is its sporty silhouette, immediately identifiable as a member of the Mercedes-Benz SUV family, featuring the iconic Mercedes-Benz grille pattern. The exterior design features dramatic surfaces complemented by precisely moulded edges that emphasise its proportions and muscular wheel arches, balancing elegance and power.
The AMG Line with Chrome package includes 20-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels, wheel arch liners in its colour, and an enlarged and perforated brake system on the front axle, emphasising the sporty design. The panoramic sliding sunroof enhances the exclusivity and provides ample interior lighting. Aluminium-look running boards with rubber studs underscore the GLC Coupé’s off-road capabilities, facilitating ease of entry and exit.
The SUV’s width is emphasised by two-part tail lights with black-coloured and dark red connecting elements, finished with a simulated chrome underguard. Equipped with DIGITAL LIGHT, the GLC Coupé uses a matrix of LEDs to create light that can be individually controlled, allowing targeted and dynamic light distribution. This improves driver visibility without affecting other road users. Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus enables continuous high-beam driving while avoiding glare to oncoming traffic or vehicles in front using precise LEDs.
Safety is a top priority, with the all-new GLC Coupé featuring the PRE-SAFE® system, Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, and Active Brake Assist. The GUARD 360° vehicle protection offers comprehensive monitoring of its surroundings, including a break-in and anti-theft alarm system with tow-away protection. The Parking Package with 360° camera and Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC ensures effortless parking with dynamic visualisation and audible feedback.
The interior of the all-new GLC Coupé is equipped with the sporty AMG Line interior, featuring a multifunction sports steering wheel in nappa leather, and the instrument panel and beltlines in ARTICO man-made leather with a nappa look. The dashboard is elegantly structured, with a wing-like profile in the upper section and a generous trim area in the lower section that seamlessly flows into the curved center console.
The 12.3-inch high-resolution LCD screen in front of the driver appears to float above the wing profile and trim surface. The 11.9-inch central display rises from the center console and is similarly designed to appear as if it is floating above the trim surface, slightly angled towards the driver.
The interior boasts metal structure trim elements and a center console in a metal-structure finish, elevating the cabin’s aesthetic. The seat design features ARTICO man-made leather upholstery with layered and contoured surfaces for visual lightness. Comfort features include the KEYLESS-GO Comfort Package, Boot Comfort Package, THERMATIC automatic climate control, and EASY-PACK tailgate.
The all-new GLC Coupé is equipped with the latest generation of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system. It offers enhanced user-friendliness and features brilliant images in the driver and central displays, providing easy control of it and comfort functions. The full-screen navigation provides optimal route guidance.
The MBUX Augmented Reality for navigation uses a camera to register the SUV’s surroundings. The central display presents moving images with superimposed virtual objects, traffic signs, directional arrows, lane-change recommendations, and house numbers. This technology simplifies navigation, especially in urban areas. The GLC Coupé also features an exquisite Burmester® sound system with high-quality speakers that deliver impressive surround sound.
