The Mercedes-Benz 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC class crossover is enjoying a slight refresh. Yes, we know, we did not know what had changed at first, but there are changes! On the outside, the headlights have been refitted to become more aggressive, such as those of Class A and CLS. The metal trim of the front and rear lower fasciae has also been enlarged. The rear lights have also changed.
The interior is almost entirely preserved, with the exception of the infotainment system. From now on, the MBUX infotainment will be deployed in all other Merc models. It will include all the different control options such as the voice, the center console touchpad, the touch screen and the steering wheel touchpad. The central screen has also been updated to become a 10.25-inch widescreen. An optional upgrade is to swap the physical gauges against a 12.3-inch screen.
The GLC 2020 class also receives a new four-cylinder engine. It is turbocharged and has the same displacement as the older version, but it produces 14 extra horsepower for a total of 255. The torque is the same at 273 lb-ft. The engine will continue to be associated with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Mercedes has not said anything about a hybrid replacement model.
The GLC class will reach dealers by the end of 2019. The price has not been announced yet, but it will likely be available later this year. We expect it to be similar to the current base price of $ 41,695 of the GLC 300.
