A test mule of the Mercedes-Benz GLC has been recently caught on camera, at night, on a highway near Stuttgart, Germany.
The development of the Mercedes-Benz GLC is not over apparently because the carmaker is continuing to test different mules of the crossover. The newest one to be caught on camera has been spotted near Stuttgart, Germany, on a highway, at night, wearing the usual camouflage on its body. If you were hoping to see some new lines in the clip posted below, you will be in for a surprise, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not worth taking a look at.
The brand new Mercedes-Benz GLC is basically a new generation of the GLK, which has received a new name, just like the ML did. The model in question will grow in size compared to the current version in order to make room for its smaller brother, the GLA, and also in order to offer more space in the cabin and to become more popular than its main rivals such as the BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.
The new Mercedes-Benz GLC will also has a longer wheelbase, along with a stretched hood, a front axle which has been pushed forward and this is translating into a more spacious interior. A slightly sloping roofline towards the rear will give it a sportier look but without affecting the rear headroom. The engine lineup of the crossover is expected to be shared with the one of the new C-Class generation and this includes the 1.8L turbo four-cylinder in the GLC250, the 2.1L in the GCL 250 BlueTEC and the V6 in the GCL360. It’s not known at this time whether an AMG version will be introduced.
