The Mercedes-Benz GLC is being tested in actual traffic.

More Mercedes-Benz GLC spy shots are now surfacing as the world premiere of the SUV on June 17 nears. Previously, we featured a couple of spy shots of the auto with very thin camouflage, giving us already an idea of the design we have to expect from it.

Recently, the vehicle was caught on video and was uploaded by YouTube user walkoART. It showed the Mercedes-Benz GLC with a very little camo covering only the lines on its sides, bumpers, and lights as it was being driven in actual traffic.

Hit play in the video below to see the Mercedes-Benz GLC in traffic:

What we are looking at here is the standard model of the Mercedes GLC. This is the direct successor of the Mercedes-Benz GLK.

It should be noted that the name change was only due to the updated nomenclature system of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The letters “GL” in the “GLC” refer to the SUV lineup of the brand. The last letter indicates the relationship of the auto with the core series of the company. In this case, the “C” in the “GLC” points out to the C-Class where the vehicle has adopted pretty much of its styling features.

There is also a strong belief among us that the GLC might be carrying most of the tech and interior design of the C-Class as well. Then, the engine configurations of its variants will probably follow the ones offered by its sedan counterpart, plus it will likely offer an AMG Sport version in addition to its full-fledged AMG model.
