Mercedes GLC Coupe gets refreshed looks, new engines for 2019

Recommended Posts

Mercedes GLC Coupe 2019 press - on the road nose Tweaked design, new safety systems and uprated interior technology for Mercedes' more stylish SUV

Mercedes-Benz has given the GLC Coupe crossover SUV a mid-life facelift, adding mild-hybrid engines to the line-up and improving safety with new driver assistance systems.

Expected to arrive later this year, the revised GLC Coupe has recieved design tweaks similar to those used on the recently-refreshed regular GLC. It gets more pronounced A-pillars, a revised rear diffuser and a diamond radiator grille, along with a distinctive swooping roofline and rounded rear window.

It will launch with a range of new 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder petrol and Euro 6d-compliant diesel engines, ahead of the change in legislation due in 2020. The 207bhp GLC200 4Matic and 267bhp GLC300 4Matic include Mercedes' EQ Boost 48-volt starter-generator, which can assist with power delivery or energy recuperation for improved fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions. The trio of diesels that complete the initial line-up, the 161bhp 200d, 191bhp 220d and 242bhp 300d, are expected to make up the majority of UK sales.

It also receives optional dynamic body control suspension with adaptive dampers. Mercedes has yet to quote any performance claims for the facelifted Coupe.

Inside, the GLC Coupe features Mercedes' latest MBUX infotainment system, with 12.3in digital instrument display and a choice of 7.0in or 10.3in infotainment screen. A touchpad replaces the rotary dial found on the outgoing car, while voice recognition and gesture control is available for hands-free use.

It also gains a new suite of driver assistance and safety functions, including door exit warnings, active distance and active steer assist adaptive cruise control, active brake assist and traffic jam detection. Trailer manoeuvring assist uses the 360-degree parking camera to help calculate angles when reversing with a trailer hitched.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced, but the facelifted car is expected to carry a small premium over the outgoing GLC Coupe's £42,390 starting price.
