The GLC-Class SUV is one of Mercedes-Benz’s best-selling vehicles and will receive a makeover for 2020. That includes a sportier stance with LED headlights that have slimmer casings, a revised rear bumper, LED taillights, and new exhaust tips. A range of new wheel designs will be offered as well.
Like its C-Class cousin, the GLC-Class SUV will be powered by a refreshed 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. It’s a 14-hp and 2 lb-ft bump from the year before. The 4Matic all-wheel drive system has been updated for the new year as well, and there are updates to the vehicle’s driving modes as a result.
There’s a 10.3-inch infotainment screen inside with an available 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. New voice controls add to the input options, joining gestures and a touchpad on the center console. Advanced safety tech is mostly optional and includes adaptive cruise, lane change assist, blind spot monitors, and rear cross-traffic alerts.
The GLC-Class competes with the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. We should start seeing the new models appear in late 2019, and there is no word yet on pricing.
