The new GLC is larger than the model it replaces with a wheelbase that is 15 mm longer. The SUV is also 60 mm longer overall though the width has remained unchanged. On the design front, the new GLC features an evolutionary design while incorporating design elements from the new C-class. The second-gen SUV also gets a longer rear overhang that has helped liberate more boot space.

The cabin too follows the design of the C-class with an identical layout featuring a digital instrument cluster and a larger portrait-style central touchscreen. Mercedes says that the GLC will be its first SUV in India to get the NTG 7 infotainment system – the system is already available in select sedans such as the C-class.

Coming to the engine line-up, the new GLC will be available in petrol GLC 300 and diesel GLC 220d spec with 4Matic all-wheel drive as standard. Both trims denote 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged units under the hood and 48-volt mild-hybrid tech will also be standard. In global markets, the GLC 300 4Matic develops 254 bhp and 400 Nm of peak torque. The GLC 220d meanwhile develops 194 bhp and a meatier 440 Nm of torque. It remains to be seen if the power outputs for the Indian market are different.
