While the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC is now an all-new model, the design change is more of an evolution of the X253 generation rather than a radical all-new look. The front end has been given a redesign, now sporting a bigger grille and sleeker headlights.

At the back, the GLC SUV now gets a bridged taillight design. Their interior has a three-dimensional look, and as an optional extra, they are available with an animation. The rear end also has a simulated chrome underguard, which encases the simulated chrome-look tailpipes.
