A new video surfaced showing the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe on the road, and it shows the crossover with some parts partially covered. This only means that Mercedes is preparing for the facelifted version of the vehicle.
From the looks of it, the GLC will be introducing updates for its 2020 model year lineup, which will be unveiled sometime in 2019. The mid-cycle refresh is an attempt of Mercedes to outdo its main rivals’ BMW X4 and upcoming Audi Q3 Sportback/Q4.
The prototype was spotted roaming the streets of Germany. This time, Mercedes did not put much effort in concealing the cosmetic upgrades of the auto.
The observed updates include the front bumper and the lighting system. The changes appear to be mild in nature so there’s not much to say about them. It should be noted that what we are looking at is only the Mercedes-Benz GLC 4MATIC 300 Coupe model though—as indicated by the backside badge of the vehicle—so we are yet to see what will happen with the sportier and more aggressive Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe model.
Motor1 predicts that the AMG GLC 43 Coupe might feature a power boost to match the figures of the Mercedes-AMG C43. However, don’t get your hopes up about the technologically-advanced MBUX multimedia system reaching the dashboard of the facelifted GLC.
Since Mercedes, together with BMW and Audi, is expected to skip the Detroit Motor Show this January, the most likely venue for the facelifted GLC’s debut is at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019.
