Mercedes-Benz Australia has detailed the local pricing and standard features for its critical new-generation GLC SUV ahead of its on-sale date in June.
As previously detailed, the new Mercedes-Benz GLC will only be available with one variant at launch locally. The GLC 300 4Matic is priced from $104,900 before on-road costs, which is $12,600 more than the outgoing model.
The German carmaker’s local division has said coupe and AMG GLC models will follow at a later date. Although the latter hasn’t been officially revealed yet, a number of spied prototypes have been captured over the last 12 months.
The GLC 300 4Matic is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 190kW and 400Nm of torque, and a 48V mild-hybrid system that has a starter-alternator producing 17kW/200Nm.
Based on the current C-Class, this new GLC is 60mm longer and 4mm shorter than the outgoing model. The width remains unchanged and the wheelbase is 15mm longer.
