The 2023 model year Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV Crossover is now available for order in Germany. The prices start at 57,631.70 euros ($57,789.61 based on prevailing conversion rates).
The GLC SUV just released its second-generation model in June this year. The GLC range came as a replacement for the GLK-Class in 2015 and has been the best-selling vehicle under the Mercedes-Benz brand in the past few years.
The latest generation features cleaner and smoother surfaces that embody the three-pointed star marque’s “sensual purity, intelligence, and emotion” design philosophy. It is also highlighted by a mild hybrid setup, new onboard tech, and a more agile body having a better drag coefficient at 0.29 cd than its predecessor’s 0.31 cd.
New Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV Trims
The new generation of the GLC SUV is currently available in three trims in Germany with three more coming soon, including a plug-in hybrid model, and a couple of yet-to-be-confirmed AMG models. Meanwhile, the US will only get two choices for the SUV in its dealerships.
