As the substitute for the aged GLK-class, which itself was crafted from the mechanical rib of a previous C-class design, the new GLC could not be more important to Mercedes-Benz, with the compact-crossover market extra popular than ever before. Previewed in "sports car" from earlier this spring, the even more traditional GLC SUV embraces the charismatic "Sensuous Pureness" styling components that have spread throughout the Mercedes schedule. When sales begin this November, the GLC-class lineup for the United States will include simply the GLC300 SUV in rear-wheel-drive and also 4MATIC all-wheel-drive types. Coupe models are set to join the party eventually following year.
On the safety front, we find approximately nine airbags, consisting of a motorist's-knee airbag, as well as the front traveler seat, is outfitted with the automatic child-seat recognition that uses a weight mat, not a transponder, to deactivate the airbag when a child seat is set up. An additional safety-related nicety is an off-road lighting setting that supplies wider lighting of the terrain in advance, and also just like many various other Benzes, the GLC will be provided with collision-prevention help, blind-spot caution, lane-keeping aid, and more.
