Mercedes-Benz has revealed the updated GLC Coupe ahead of a local arrival late this year alongside the recently unveiled wagon version.
Exterior changes are subtle, the bumpers, front grille, headlight and tail-lights have all been tweaked. High-Performance LED headlights are now standard-fit across the range.
The interior will now feature the MBUX infotainment system which comprises a 10.25-inch touchscreen, navigation with augmented reality and intelligent voice control via the talk button or the "Hey Mercedes" prompt. There’s also a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
Mercedes-Benz has updated the GLC Coupe’s powertrains for the new model year. The petrol powered GLC200 and GLC300 use a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 145kW/320Nm and 190kW/370Nm respectively.
The petrol engine utilises a 48-volt onboard electrical system called EQ Boost. The belt-driven starter-generator is responsible for hybrid functions such as producing a 10kW/150Nm boost for short bursts, energy recuperation and reducing consumption while cruising.
Both models feature a nine-speed automatic transmission that sends torque to the brand’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
Three diesel options will be available (depending on the market), it’s the same four-cylinder engine tuned to deliver 120kW/360Nm in the 200d, 143kW/400Nm in the 220d and 180kW/500Nm in the range-topping 300d.
Safety has been bolstered by the addition of Active Distance Assist Distronic (smart cruise control) which automatically adjust the speed ahead of bends or junctions.
As an alternative to the standard sports suspension with adaptive damping, buyers can now option Dynamic Body Control with infinitely adjustable dampers for the steel springs on the front and rear axle.
Also optional is the Energizing comfort control which combines various in-vehicle systems to create an optimum environment. The system modifies the lighting, music and climate control, along with seat heating, ventilation and massage function to fit the driver and the situation.
The 2020 GLC Coupe should reach Australia towards the end of the year.
