2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe First Look
- Coupe version of refreshed GLC revealed
- Upgraded 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine
- Set to go on sale late this year
- Current GLC Coupe priced from $47,300
Following the introduction of the facelifted, 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, the German automaker has taken the wraps off the fastback coupe variant of its compact luxury SUV. This new Mercedes-Benz is set for a debut at the New York Auto Show and will go on sale by the end of the year.
Like its more formal-roofline sibling, the new GLC Coupe sports a revised diamond-block grille, slim LED head- and rear taillamp designs, interior upgrades including the new Mercedes-Benz User eXperience (MBUX) interface and an upgraded 4-cylinder engine.
The fastback roof is the principal distinguishing feature between the GLC and GLC Coupe. The fastback shape gives the vehicle a sportier appearance, aided by the distinctive grille (available in silver or black when the Night Package is specified) and lower intakes, chrome strip on the high beltline and 19-inch wheels.
The contemporary makeover carries over into the cabin, where the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe has a new available 12.3-inch digital instrument panel ahead of the driver and a high definition 10.25-inch center touchscreen, which is also controlled by a new console-mounted touchpad. The revamped interior features new materials and accents, including upholstery choices of either MB-Tex or leather.
The 2020 GLC Coupe also features MBUX which is the latest in intelligent voice control that uses natural language and responds to the verbal cue “Hey, Mercedes.”
The GLC 300 Coupe is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine rated at 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The engine changes resulted in a 14-horsepower gain in output. Offered in rear- and all-wheel drive 4Matic, the GLC Coupe uses a 9-speed automatic transmission. Like the standard model, it has Dynamic Select drive modes and recalibrated 3-stage stability control that provides a marked distinction between Sport and Sport+ modes.
The GLC Coupe also benefits from new as well as revised driver aids and safety systems. New to the vehicle is an exit-warning function which joins adaptive cruise control with navigation-based speed adaptation, active steering assist, automatic emergency braking, active speed limit, lane keeping and active blind spot assists.
The updated 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 Coupe will go on sale late this year with pricing announced closer to its appearance in showrooms. The current 2019 GLC Coupe is priced from $47,300.
