GLS facelift

The facelift strengthens the leading position of the GLS in its segment with a modified exterior, even more quality in the interior plus innovative technology for enhanced ride comfort and safety. The large-size SUV appeals to customers who are looking for impressive spaciousness for up to 7 people and a modern take on luxury.

GLC Coupé

The dynamic-expressive styling of the GLC Coupé concept was a centre of attention at its world premiere in 2015 in Shanghai. It unites the typical stylistic elements of a coupé with the design language of current SUV models. Just one year later, this promise has become a reality: the new GLC Coupé translates the design idiom of the show car, with its distinctive basic structure and stretched greenhouse, virtually unchanged into series production. At the same time, the sports car among Mercedes-Benz’s midsize SUVs impresses with its brand-typical safety, modern assistance systems and an especially sporty-dynamic character.The as-standard sports suspension as well as more direct sports steering, DYNAMIC SELECT and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission combine effortlessly superior ride comfort with decidedly sporty agility.

At the launch, the GLC 250 4MATIC Coupé is powered by a 4-cylinder turbocharged pertol engine which delivers an output of 155 kW (211 hp) and a peak torque of 350 Nm.
