Live Stream: All-new Mercedes-Benz GLC to debut tonight at 11pm! [+Video]


We’ve seen the concept (coupe styling), we’ve seen the spy shots (regular bodied), and now for the real deal – the world premier of the GLK’s successor – the GLC.

The GLK nameplate may be strange to us, especially because it was never made in a right-hand drive configuration. But that’s about to change with the GLC, and it’s only a matter of time before the premium compact SUV gets introduced here. It’s main rival? The BMW X4.

Just to quickly recap, the GLC measures at 4,727 mm long, 2,000 mm wide, 1,593 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,827 mm. Powering the GLC Coupe is a 3.0-litre twin turbocharged V6 engine mated to a nine-speed (9G-Tronic) automatic transmission, sending 367 hp and 520 Nm to the four wheels via the brand’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

As for the regular GLC, we can expect the familiar 2.0-litre turbocharged inline-four powering the W205 C-Class (the model which it’s based on) to be featured here. On the inside however, as per our spy shots, revealed quite a stark resemblance to the C-Class, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
