Mercedes-Benz India has unveiled the much awaited GLC and the S-Class Cabriolet at the Auto Expo 2016. Both the global products which do not have a predecessor in India, were unveiled by Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India.


The Mercedes-Benz GLC is a unique, sporty and dynamic SUV which combines the ultimate in driving comfort, with impressive on road and off-road capabilities. The design philosophy behind the new GLC essentially favours sensual purity and modern aesthetics over the classic off-road look. The paradigm shift in the area of design affects not only the outside appearance. The new design idiom combines sensual purity with dynamic sportiness and embodies a new interpretation of modern luxury. With a Cd value of 0.31, it sets a clear benchmark in this segment.


The new GLC offers the DYNAMIC SELECT handling control system with five driving programs as standard. In addition to the ECO, COMFORT, SPORT, SPORT+ and INDIVIDUAL settings which are familiar from other models, the new all-rounder is also be equipped with the Off-Road Engineering package. The nine-stage 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission also comes as standard for the GLC 300 4MATIC.


The S-Class Cabriolet is the 6th variant of the current S-Class family and the first open-top luxury four-seater from Mercedes-Benz since 1971. The S-Class Cabriolet symbolizes Mercedes-Benz’s passion for creating individual and timeless exclusive mobility for customers. The V8 engine of the S 500 Cabrio has an output of 461 PS. The displacement stands at 4663 cc and the engine produces peak torque of 700 Nm from 1800 rpm. The S-Class Cabriolet is fitted as standard with the full-support AIRMATIC semi-active air suspension featuring infinitely variable damping control.


Innovative solutions such as the luggage compartment bulkhead made of aluminium and magnesium as well as the aluminium rear floor also lower the body shell weight to the level of the S-Class Coupe. The S-Class Cabriolet has a host of safety features. The standard-fit roll-over protection system behind the rear head restraints features pyrotechnic initiation of the actuators for the first time, in addition to which the roll bars themselves are moved into position by a gas generator. The multilayer, taut soft top underscores the vehicle's class when closed. The switch in the centre console can be used to open and close the soft top while on the move up to a speed of 60 kmph. Opening and closing take around 20 seconds.
