The Mercedes Benz GLC on the way this year
Mercedes Benz are all set to replace their GLK model with the brand new GLC which will officially go on sale here in Britain later on this year. The brand new car as we stated will replace the GLK but will be seen as just a new addition to the market here in Britain as the GLK was not sold here due to issues with the right hand drive steering. More information is gradually coming to light about the new model the closer we get towards its official launch and the car has been spotted testing on a few different occasions. In our post today we have all of the latest information known on the new car as we look ahead to the grand launch of the brand new car. The new Mercedes model is going to pack some big updates made to the bodywork of the vehicle and we will also see some adjustments made to the engine too.
What's the latest on the Mercedes GLC?
So in regards to the latest known information on the new model, engine wise we are expecting to see a range of V6 petrol and diesel engines which are going to be paired up to either a seven or a nine speed automatic transmission system. The engine range is also expected to come turbocharged. If you are looking more towards different fuel cell vehicles though, a hybrid version of the GLC will be made available on the road from next year with more exact specifics still awaiting confirmation.
The latest images of the car testing have revealed to us some new exterior components that the car is set to carry. Brand new headlights and tail lights are just two of the features amongst the big changes. The boot has also received some restyling as has the boot. Newly fitted chrome trimmings can also be found mostly around the front end of the vehicle.
Will the GLC prove to be a success here in the United Kingdom?
From what we have heard about the new model so far, we certainly believe that it has the potential to yes. With any company offering a new model into the suv segment there is a lot competition waiting in this day and age. When we look at what kind of cars the GLC will look to dethrone, the X3 from BMW and the the Q5 from Audi certainly come to mind. Time will tell though. Keep an eye out for the new Mercedes suv as it makes it onto the road this year.
