The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe in Euro-spec is setting back interested buyers at least 49, 444 euros – or 40, 580 pounds if you happen to live in the United Kingdom.
People have somehow managed to understand and adopt the quirky and decidedly less practical coupe-SUV segment, which was started years ago by the BMW X6. Now the latter is in its second generation and Mercedes-Benz has decided to give the Bavarians a run for their money not only in that segment, but also in the one the BMW X4 activates – meaning a more compact version can be had as the GLC Coupe instead of the hulking GLE Coupe. In the UK, the regular GLC compact SUV will go for £34,950 – but style over substance always commends a premium, so the GLC Coupe will go for at least £40,580. At home in Germany the same scenario: the GLC can be had starting from €44,506, while the GLC Coupe will set eager owners back at least €49,444.
For the money the people will get the GLC Coupe 220d 4Matic, but we highly advise an upgrade to the 250d version that has 204 hp instead of 170. Both versions of the oldish 2.1-liter turbo diesel have been linked to the 9G-Tronic automatic transmission as standard. There’s always the more upscale option of a petrol engine – but for now choices are restricted to the GLC 250 4Matic Coupe. Prices for the other versions – GLC 200 d Coupe, GLC 350 d 4Matic Coupe, GLC 300 4Matic Coupe, GLC 350 e 4Matic Coupe, and GLC 43 4Matic Coupe will be revealed later on.
