The GLC 220d Coupe is the entry point to the range, sitting below the 250 and 250d, and wears a sticker price of $77,100.

Expect a 2.1-litre diesel donk good for 125kW and 400Nm, enough to push the 220d to 100km/h in a somewhat leisurely 8.3 seconds while sipping a claimed/combined 5.8 litres per hundred kilometres. It's paired with a nine-speed torque converter automatic gearbox and sends its power to all four wheels.

You'll want for little, too, with even the entry-level modding scoring the AMG Line Pack as standard, which adds 20-inch alloys, body skirting and a sportier interior. On the road, you'll get adaptive dampers as standard kit, and a five-step adjustable drive mode program that allows you to dial up the sportiness at will.

Inside, you'll find a nav-equipped seven-inch touchscreen, a five-speaker stereo and privacy glass at the rear.

On the safety front, expect nine airbags, AEB and a self-parking mode as standard, along with a 360-degree reversing camera.
