At the New York International Auto Show Mercedes is easily overshadowed with its new SUV model under the symbol GLC Coupe. Going back to last year when the head of the Mercedes research and development Thomas Weber said that the GLC Coupe concept to go into production, after presentation to the public GLS and GLC models, the words is held!
In this way, in 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is based on the basis of the current C-class and therefore attacks the BMW X4 model. From the standard model GLC picked up the bonnet, front wings, and lower door panels. Concrete, dimensions, GLC Coupe the length of 4730mm, height 1600mm and the wheelbase is 283mm. Although the last part of the roof lowered slightly but company still claims that it is not threatened by the comfort of passenger while the size of the trunk is slightly smaller and that is 491 liters.
As for the drive units are available petrol and diesel variants, including plug-in hybrid, and is included in the prestigious AMG version.
For basic gasoline model with GLC 250 4MATIC Coupe has a 2.0-liter turbo engine that delivers 211hp. The main diesel labeled GLC 220d Coupe with 2.1-liter engine of 170hp, while more powerful 250d Coupe 4MATIC has an output of 204hp. All these models are paired with 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission.
Then there is the hybrid version GLC 350e 4MATIC Coupe with the same petrol engine as well as GLC 250, was added on the electric motor, and on that basis receives a maximum power of 320hp, mated to a 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission.
