The new GLC is available two engine options. Both come with a 48-volt mild hybrid system and all-wheel drive as standard.

Mercedes-Benz has launched the second-generation GLC in India. The 2023 GLC comes in two variants - GLC 300 4Matic petrol and GLC 220d 4Matic diesel – and are priced at Rs 73.5 lakh and Rs 74.5 lakh (ex-showroom, India), respectively. Both these engine options come with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. Mercedes-Benz has already stated that the new GLC has received over 1500 bookings. There are a number of changes on the 2023 GLC over the outgoing model.

On the outside, the 2023 GLC has been given a slightly slimmer design to the LED tail lamps as well as sharper headlamps. The GLC is now 60 mm longer and 70 litres of extra boot space than the previous generation model. Mercedes-Benz has also increased the wheelbase by 15 mm and ground clearance is up 20 mm, too. Furthermore, the new GLC gets an off-road feature which uses the front camera to show what is underneath the bonnet of the SUV. The new GLC also gets 19-inch alloy wheels but with a new design pattern.

On the inside, the new GLC gets a very similar cabin to the C-Class with a vertically mounted 11.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The new GLC comes loaded with seven airbags and features new safety equipment like Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist. Mercedes-Benz has also packed with the 2023 GLC with a panoramic sunroof, 360-degree cameras, 64 colour ambient interior lighting and an air purifier. The front seats are heated and come with a memory function as well.

As mentioned earlier, the new GLC gets two engine options, both of which come paired to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. First is the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel motor which churns out 195 bhp and 440 Nm of torque called the 220d. Second, a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine producing 255 bhp and 400 Nm of torque called the 300. Both these motors have all-wheel drive as standard and come mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. The new Mercedes-Benz GLC makes 60 bhp more than its predecessor.

Mercedes-Benz also boasts of a higher fuel economy figure for the GLC; the petrol gets an ARAI-certified figure of 14.72 kmpl, while the diesel returns a claimed 19.47 kmpl. Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz's latest SUV will be available in five exterior colours and three interior trim colour options.
