A test mule of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLC has been spotted recently while filling up its tank.
This seems to be SUV day here on inautonews.com because our spy photographers have provided us with new images with the with the Maserati Levante and new they are bringing us the brand new Mercedes-Benz GLC. The model in question is a mid-size SUV which has been referred to previously as the GLK and it will be part of the nomenclature system adopted by the German based automaker recently.
The brand new Mercedes-Benz GLC will be slightly larger than its predecessor and this has been made possible because it had to move up a bit in order to make room for its smaller brother, the GLA. The vehicle has a longer wheelbase than the current GLK and a wider track, along with what seems to be a stretched hood and a front axle which has been pushed forward in order to accommodate the longer wheelbase, translating into a more spacious interior.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC will better match its main rivals, the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3 in terms of comfort and space and despite being hidden underneath its camouflage, the model seems to have a sloped roof and sportier proportions. The mechanical package will be shared with the one of the new C-Class generation and the base engine, in the GLC 250, will be a 1.8L turbo four-cylinder, while the GLC 250 BlueTEC will get a 2.1L four-cylinder diesel and the GLC 350 will get a V6. It is not certain at this point whether the model will get an AMG version.
