Driving into the future

The new GLC Coupé is a contemporary masterpiece with a dynamic design for a progressive lifestyle  
Mercedes

The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé exudes a bold and theatrical design that is both artistic and avant-garde. As the sporty sibling of the GLC SUV, it rounds off the best-selling Mercedes-Benz series of vehicles. The first impression, before the GLC Coupé even starts, is a vehicle of elegance, dynamism and offroad adventure. Striking proportions, dramatic surfaces and precisely moulded edges define an unmistakeable look, complemented by a clearly laid-out, high-quality interior. And for the first time, a panoramic sunroof is available on the GLC Coupé.

“The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé undoubtedly resonates with the affluent South African clientele. It speaks to that desire for adventure, both in the urban environment and the greater outdoors. The design is both contemporary and dynamic, the ultimate lifestyle accessory form the world’s most innovate and luxurious automotive brand,” says Mark Raine, co-CEO of Mercedes-Benz South Africa.

The GLC Coupé combines sporty performance with high efficiency. All models are equipped with electric drive technology, in the form of a mild hybrid system with 48-volt technology and an integrated starter-generator for an extra boost and energy recuperation. And the new GLC Coupé is at home on almost any terrain. Whether on or off the road, it impresses with its comfort and agility. The sports suspension is standard.

The optional 4.5° rear axle steering makes the vehicle even more manoeuvrable. It is offered in the Technology package along with AIRMATIC air suspension. Off the road, the Coupé scores with numerous features such as 4MATIC all-wheel drive The off-road screen and the “transparent bonnet” as an element of the 360° camera enhance the comfort of the driving experience.

The latest MBUX driver experience
The high standards of the 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. The two LCD screens present clear and structured information. The full-screen navigation gives the driver the best possible route guidance. MBUX Augmented Reality for navigation is available as an option. A camera registers 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.

Progressive design
The defining feature of the new GLC Coupé is its sporty silhouette. It is immediately recognisable as a member of the Mercedes-Benz SUV family. Standard equipment includes the AVANTGARDE exterior with 18‑inch light alloy wheels and the chrome package. Accentuating the width of the car is the seamless transition from the headlights to the radiator grille. The Mercedes-Benz pattern is standard on the radiator grille cover.

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 is available with 19-inch or 20-inch mixed-profile tyres and wheel arch liners in the vehicle colour.

Modern and sporty interior
The interior of the new GLC Coupé is equipped with the modern AVANTGARDE line as standard. 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 (31.2 cm) high-resolution LCD screen in front of the driver appears to float freely above the wing profile and trim surface. The 11.9-inch (30.2 cm) central display rises from the centre console and likewise appears to float above the trim surface.

The modern, scaled-back design of the door panels frames both ends of the dashboard. The seat design plays with layers and contoured surfaces, lending them visual lightness. The head restraints and their connection to the backrest with an enclosed cover have been redesigned. Now offered as a special feature (standard for the AMG Line) is a leather-lined dashboard with nappa-look beltlines.

“Mercedes-Benz South Africa offers a progressive SUV line-up that appeals to every facet of the market. The latest GLC SUV has already impressed automotive media and customers alike and the GLC Coupe aims to elevate that sentiment even more. A dynamic design, a host of standard features and the latest technology have culminated to form this head-turning beauty. This GLC commands the attention of those around it and we are very excited to introduce it into the market,” says Alex Boavida Vice President Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz South Africa.
