Mercedes-Benz India has officially launched the 2016 GLC luxury SUV in the country with prices starting at 50.9 lakh for the petrol version, going up to 50.7 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom, Pune) for the diesel variant. The new model is available in both diesel and petrol options. The GLC 220d, powered by a 2143 cc diesel engine, is priced at Rs 50.7 lakh, while the GLC 300 driven by a 1991 cc petrol engine is tagged at Rs 50.9 lakh (all prices ex-showroom Pune).


“The GLC is a key product that fills the gap between the GLA and the GLE luxury SUVs. We have seen a growing penchant for luxury SUVs amongst luxury car customers in India and the addition of the GLC is going to redefine the segment completely,” Mercedes-Benz India MD and CEO Roland Folger. The model is being imported to India as a completely built unit.


Sharing its underpinnings with the C-Class sedan (Hence the nameplate), the Mercedes-Benz GLC gets a wheelbase of 2873mm, which is 113mm more than the sedan and enhances cabin space on the SUV. The styling too is in-line with the C-Class and the similarities are evident in the front. A twin-slat grille graces the front with a chrome finished faux skid plate, while the headlights are quite similar to the ones on the C-Class. The rear sports the AMG GT inspired tail lamps and twin exhausts surrounded by a good amount of chrome.The silhouette though is more estate-like, a thing we pointed out in our review.


Mercedes-Benz is offering both petrol and diesel engine options on the GLC. The GLC 220d is powered by a 2143cc four-cylinder diesel motor, while the GLC 300 petrol uses a 1991cc four-cylinder unit.


The cabin on the Mercedes-Benz GLC holds strong resemblance to the C-Class and gets impeccable fit and finish. A 7-inch infotainment screen gives out all the information including a 360-degree view of the SUV, while infotainment features include 20 CD stereo, Garmin-based navigation, 2 USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity and much more. The boot capacity stands at 550-litres, which can be expanded to 1600-litres with the rear seats folded down.
