As for the interior of a crossover, it is made in the manner of C-Class W205 with three round nozzles in the center console and a large-screen multimedia system over him.

The basis of the new Mercedes-Benz GLC laid down modular chassis Modular Rear Architecture (MRA), as is already familiar from the C-Class. Crossover weight (depending on the version, it is from 1 735 to 2 025 kg), the engineers were able to reduce up to 80 kg, of which 50 occurred in the lighter body (all thanks to the use in the construction of high-strength steels and aluminum), and the drag coefficient is now set 0.31 against 0.34 in the GLK.

To compensate this, you can order the optional air suspension Air Body Control, which allows you to adjust the clearance, increasing it to 30 or 50 mm to a maximum of 227 millimeters, or reducing by 40 mm in loading mode (15 mm in sport mode and 35 – in the mode of Sport +). In the base the suspension is for GLC with steel springs and shock absorbers with five adaptive modes.

The base is a 2.1-liter diesel engine, which is offered in variants of return of 170 hp (400 Nm) on the modification of GLC 220d 4Matic and 204 hp (500 Nm) – by GLC 250d 4Matic. The first car accelerates from zero to hundred in 8.3 seconds, the second – in 7.6 seconds.
The petrol engine – a 2.0-liter “turbo” to return to the 211 power (350 Nm) in the version GLC 250 4Matic, which allows you to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds. All three versions are equipped with a new 9-band automatic 9G-Tronic and permanent all-wheel drive, distributing traction in the ratio of 45:55 in favor of the rear axle (as usual).
In addition, Mercedes SFS 2016 immediately available in a hybrid version GLC 350e 4Matic. It combines the above-mentioned 211-horsepower gasoline engine, an electric motor (116 forces and 340 Nm), a set of lithium-ion battery (with a capacity of 8.7 kWh) and semidiapazonnaya automatic transmission 7G-Tronic Plus.
A pure electric crossover is able to overcome 34 kilometers at a speed not exceeding 140 km/h, while the maximum speed from the normal reaches 235 kilometers per hour and acceleration to hundreds claimed 5.9 seconds.
Later the line of powertrains for Mercedes GLC will be expanded, it is expected the emergence of a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo engine with 333 hp in the impact, which first appeared on the restyled E-Class 2014.
