Mercedes-Benz Malaysia today introduced the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC Coupé. Fully imported, the SUV is priced at RM469,888 on the road without insurance.
The vehicle is a mild hybrid with 48-volt technology and an integrated starter-generator for an extra boost and energy recuperation. Off the road, the Coupé scores with numerous features such as 4MATIC all-wheel drive. Complemented by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, total output figure stands at 258 hp while peak torque is rated at 400 Nm. In terms of performance, the GLC 300 Coupe 4MATIC which also comes with AWD, goes from 0 to 100 in 6.3 seconds and hits a top speed of 246 km/h.
The off-road screen and the “transparent bonnet” as an element of the 360° camera enhance the comfort of the driving experience. This allows drivers to maneuver confidently and safely around obstacles.
The defining feature of the all-new GLC Coupé is its sporty silhouette. It is immediately recognisable as a member of the Mercedes-Benz SUV family with the iconic Mercedes-Benz pattern on the radiator grille. The dramatic surfaces continue to define the exterior design. It is enhanced with precisely moulded edges that accentuate the proportions and the muscular wheel arches. They also strike a balance between elegance and power.
The AMG Line with Chrome package features 20-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels and wheel arch liners in the vehicle colour. The brake system with enlarged and perforated brake discs on the front axle always packs a powerful punch, even after several heavy braking manoeuvres.
In addition, the perforation together with the “Mercedes-Benz” lettering emphasises the sporty design. With the panoramic sliding sunroof, the vehicle looks particularly exclusive while providing passengers ample lighting in the interior. The aluminium-look running boards with rubber studs underline the off-road capability of the GLC Coupé and makes getting in and out of the vehicle easier.
Accentuating the width of the vehicle are the two-part tail lights with black-coloured and dark red connecting elements, closed off below by the simulated chrome underguard. The all-new GLC Coupé is equipped with DIGITAL LIGHT.
The light is created by a matrix of LEDs in the headlight unit that can be individually controlled. This permits a targeted and dynamic distribution and control of light in response to conditions. The result is excellent visibility for the driver without impairing that of other road users. With Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus, drivers drive with continuous high beam without dazzling others. The intelligent system excludes oncoming traffic or vehicles in front with highly precise LEDs.
As with all Mercedes-Benz models, safety is vital as such the all-new GLC Coupé comes with PRE-SAFE system, Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, and Active Brake Assist. GUARD 360° vehicle protection offers all-round monitoring of the vehicle’s surroundings – for example with the break-in and anti-theft alarm system with tow-away protection. The Parking Package with 360° camera and Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC turn the challenge of tight parking spaces into confident composure. Drivers can park effortlessly thanks to dynamic visualisation and audible feedback – or have the vehicle parked with assisted parking.
The interior of the all-new GLC Coupé is equipped with the sporty AMG Line interior featuring multifunction sports steering wheel in nappa leather and instrument panel and beltlines in ARTICO man-made leather in nappa look. The dashboard is clearly structured. The upper section has a wing-like profile with new, flattened vent outlets. The lower section has a generous trim area that flows seamlessly into the curved centre console.
The 12.3-inch high-resolution LCD screen in front of the driver appears to float freely above the wing profile and trim surface. The 11.9-inch central display rises from the centre console and likewise appears to float above the trim surface. Like the dashboard, the screen surface is slightly angled towards the driver.
The all-new GLC Coupé includes metal structure trim element and centre console in metal-structure finish elevating the interior even further. The seat design with ARTICO man-made leather upholstery plays with layers and contoured surfaces, lending them visual lightness. For an added level of comfort, the vehicle comes with KEYLESS-GO Comfort Package, Boot Comfort Package, THERMATIC automatic climate control, and EASY-PACK tailgate.
The high standards of the all-new GLC Coupé are evident in every detail. The hardware and software of the latest generation of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system offer even better user friendliness. Brilliant images in the driver and central display make it easy to control vehicle and comfort functions. The two LCD screens present clear and structured information. The full-screen navigation gives the driver the best possible route guidance.
The MBUX Augmented Reality for navigation uses a camera to register the surroundings in front of the vehicle. The central display shows the moving images and also superimposes virtual objects, information and markers. These include traffic signs, directional arrows, lane-change recommendations and house numbers.
This makes navigation much easier, especially in urban areas. Experience greater audio performance with exquisite Burmester sound. The high-quality speakers achieve impressive surround sound.
