Mercedes GLC 2022: a look in continuity
Bestseller obliges, Mercedes does not want not upset habits of its customers. The GLC therefore only evolves in detail. The headlights now join the grille, which dominates a reworked shield. The side glazing retains its silhouette, while at the rear the lights are more assertive, with a triangular shape. On the other hand, these details hide a nice increase in dimensions: +60mm in length, to reach 4.72 m all the same! All this will benefit the trunk in particular, which gains 70 litres, for 620 liters in total. The tailgate is also motorized as standard.
Mercedes GLC interior: even more screens!
It is therefore especially inside that we will spot the second generation of the Mercedes GLC. The fault of a large vertical 11.9-inch central screen which now extends the central console. The experts will have recognized it: the dashboard is taken over almost directly from the current C-Class. Behind the steering wheel, there is a 12.3-inch digital handset, which can, among other things, display the navigation in full screen. As on the sedan, the aerators are now positioned above the screen.
At the rear, the seat is still not sliding, it’s a shame. But habitability should be slightly better thanks to the increased dimensions.
In terms of equipment, it’s a high-tech tidal wave… At least if you’re not stingy with options. We find of course many driving aidsbut also matrix LED projectors that can project messages on the road, steering rear wheels, air suspensions, interior air quality control, etc.
The engines of the Mercedes GLC 2022: all about the hybrid!
Increasingly strict standards oblige, the Mercedes GLC goes to the hybrid on the whole range. All units are four-cylinders, which receive different levels of electric assistance. Also note that all-wheel drive is standard on all versions. At launch, Mercedes will offer 6 different engines, with 3 micro-hybrids and 3 rechargeable hybrids:
|Motorization||GLC200||GLC300||GLC 220d||GLC 300e||GLC 400e||GLC 300 from|
|Powerful||204 hp||258 hp||197 hp||313 hp||381 hp||335 hp|
Note in particular that the autonomy announced for rechargeable hybrids is quite significant: from 102 to 120 km depending on the version. That’s double a lot of the competition. A good boost for those who have large daily trips without the possibility of recharging at the workplace.
Price Mercedes GLC 2022
Unsurprisingly, Mercedes does not yet communicate the prices of its star SUV. But the current generation having ended its career with an entry price of around €55,000, it would be logical to be able to access this second generation at slightly higher prices. The opening of orders is scheduled for the fall.
