Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe 2020 revealed

The GLC Coupe is set to join Benz' 2020 lineup with new engines and competitive spec.

Mercedes-Benz has revealed the facelifted version of its GLC Coupe SUV.

The new GLC Coupe follows the updated regular GLC revealed last month, and will take on the BMW X4 and Porsche Macan when its expected to arrive late this year.

On the outside, the updated GLC Coupe has a redesigned front bumper with new wider diamond grille, reshaped headlights and larger contrast inserts. Around the back it scores redesigned rear light clusters and a more subtle lower bumper with a new diffuser and exhaust garnish.

The GLC Coupe will share the same turbocharged four-cylinder engine choices as the already-revealed regular GLC range, including two mild-hybrid petrol engines - the GLC 200 (145kW/280Nm) and 300 petrol (190kW/370Nm), and three diesel engines - the GLC 200 d (120kW/360Nm), 220 d (143kW/400Nm) and 300 d (180kW/500Nm).

The mild hybrid on the petrol engines will be provided via a 48v battery system that has the ability to cut the engine while the car is coasting. The system also provides 150Nm of torque which Mercedes says assists with both comfort and performance.

All GLC Coupes will have Mercedes' 4MATIC all-wheel drive system and LED front lighting as standard.

The GLC Coupe will come with a range of petrol and diesel four-cylinder engines with all-wheel drive as standard. The GLC Coupe will come with a range of petrol and diesel four-cylinder engines with all-wheel drive as standard.

Diesel engines benefit from efficiency improvements courtesy of multiple exhaust gas treatment systems consisting of a diesel particulate filter, AdBlue injection and an 'ammonia slip catalyst' in the exhaust. Mercedes say these systems bring the GLC Coupe's diesel engines in-line with Euro 6d emissions ratings set to enter force next year.

The GLC Coupe will be optionally available with sportier 'dynamic body control' suspension with adaptive dampers or 'air body control' air suspension.

All GLC Coupes will come with Mercedes' new MBUX multimedia interface with "Hey Mercedes" voice control hosted on a 10.25-inch multimedia touchscreen. MBUX can be controlled via touch, a touchpad on the centre console or with gestures with the optional "interior assistant" pack.

Advanced safety systems come in the form of auto emergency braking (branded Active Brake Assist), Lane Keep Assist (branded Active Steer Assist), 'Active Distance Assist' which appears to be active cruise control as well as lane departure warning (LDW), something called 'tail-end-of-traffic-jam function', trailer manoeuvring assist and a 360-degree reversing camera.

A digital dashboard and large touchscreen come standard with Mercedes' new MBUX multimedia system. A digital dashboard and large touchscreen come standard with Mercedes' new MBUX multimedia system.
