First Hybrid Powered Mercedes-Benz GLC Introduced

    Mercedes-Benz GLC 2023, one of the best-selling models of Mercedes-Benz and first released under the name GLK, made its debut.

    Announcing that it will say goodbye to manual gear from 2023 a few days ago, Mercedes-Benz introduced the 2023 model version of the GLC, one of its best-selling series, with semi-hybrid technology. The car, which has the latest generation technological features, will be launched in the USA in two different versions GLC 300 and GLC 300 4Matic.

    The company uses a nine-speed automatic transmission on both models. It was announced that both cars reached a speed of 96 kilometres per hour in 6.2 seconds. The friction coefficient of the new GLC, which is even bigger than the old version, has been reduced from 0.31 to 0.29. By optimizing the underbody panels, the dimensions of the wheels, the roof spoiler and many other components, the company announced that it has designed the new crossover in a more comfortable way by prioritizing silence and efficiency.

    Introducing the new Mercedes-Benz GLC

    Mercedes uses the M254 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the rear-wheel-drive GLC 300 and all-wheel drive GLC 300 4Matic models. Both models have 48-volt semi-hybrid technology. The 258 horsepower GLC 300 produces 400 Nm of torque. In addition, the start-stop system provides an increase of 17 kW of power and 200 Nm of torque in the car.

    In the renewed design, the car’s headlights extend horizontally towards the grille. The taillights, which look thinner and sportier than the old version, have formed integrity with the black line in the trunk.

    The company, which offers 18- to 20-inch rims with two different options, also offers users the option of a side step, which they can purchase with either a plain side step or digital light.

    New generation technology features

    The Mercedes 2023 GLC series, offers a giant 12.3-inch driver screen located behind the dashboard. The car’s 11.9-inch touchscreen multimedia player is combined with the centre console. Redesigning the front panel and door interiors, Mercedes-Benz offers new generation technological features such as wireless charging and heated front seats in both models. 

    Prioritizing safety in the new GLC, Mercedes offers the Active Distance Control System, which can be used at speeds from 48 km/h to 96 km/h, as standard in both models, together with the Driving Assistance package.

    There is no official word yet on when the new GLC will be released and how much it will be sold for. However, the car is expected to be on the roads in 2023.
