At the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced the 2019 GLC, featuring new upgrades to one of their best selling crossovers both inside and out. Now, just a few weeks after the refreshed GLC's debut, the German automaker has revealed the updated GLC Coupe, completing the updated GLC lineup.
Unsurprisingly, the GLC Coupe features similar exterior upgrades to that found on the standard GLC albeit on a coupe style body. Up front, there's a reshaped bumper which features larger air intake vents. There's a new apron as well together with a chrome faux skid plate. LED headlights with a new light pattern and new wheels now come standard on the 2019 update. While the GLC Coupe's rear may a sloping roof similar to coupes as compared to the standard unit, the changes are also very mild. It features a new molded diffuser and angular exhaust outlets which are more prominent. Completing the update are the new LED taillights.
Inside the GLC Coupe, its the same story with the facelifted GLC that debuted in Geneva. A new multifunction steering wheel greets the driver and is available in two versions. In front of the driver is a new, larger 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. At the center of the dashboard sits a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system featuring the new MBUX system. New features include Interior Assistant, which is similar to BMW's Gesture Control System, and an updated voice command system.
For the 2019 GLC Coupe engine range, the turbocharged gasoline engine variants (GLC 200 and 300) now feature mild hybrid tech in the form of Mercedes' EQ boost system. This has helped extract more power from the crossover as well as improve fuel economy. The GLC 200 now produces 197 PS and the GLC 300 generates 258 PS.
The diesel model variants (GLC 200d, 220d, and 300d) do not feature the hybrid system but also gets a slight bump in power over the previous model. The GLC 200d produces 163 PS, the 220d pushes out 194 PS, and the 300d has 245 PS.
The refreshed GLC Coupe was revealed today but will make its public debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show. It is slated to go on sale later this year.
