Following the debut of the GLC Coupe Concept back in April, Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled its successor to the now defunct GLK: the 2016 GLC. Sharing much of the same design language as that of the GLE — previously dubbed the M-Class crossover — the new GLC comes in both 4Matic and RWD options and boasts a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The overall size of the vehicle and the interior will be the draw for customers, however, as the GLC features a longer wheelbase and more spacious cabin than its predecessor with 20.5 cubic feet of space available for cargo behind the second row of seats. Thanks to a Dynamic Select system, drivers will have Comfort, Sport and Sport+ drive options at their disposal with the Sport and Sport+ modes actually lowering the suspension up to almost a full inch for a more aggressive driving experience; there’ll even be an Eco mode for improved fuel economy while Individual mode will give drivers complete control over the vehicle’s various adjustments.
Though pricing info has yet to be made available, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC will make its debut this November.
