The Mercedes GLC Coupe will enter the second round in 2023. Engines such as the GLC 200 and the plug-in hybrid are based on the C-Class, which is also new, and the price is very likely to be on the predecessor.
While the hatchback variant will be replaced in autumn 2022, the Mercedes GLC Coupe to follow in spring 2023. In terms of design, it follows the new, specified design with smooth and flowing surfaces. The mild hybridized drives including plug-in hybrid motorization include a choice of two petrol engines, one diesel and three plug-in hybrids.
Under the model designations GLC 200 and 300, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 204 hp (150 kW) and 258 hp (190 kW) operate. The GLC 220 d is also a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The compression-ignition engine delivers 197 hp (145 kW). The GLC 300 e and 400 e combine the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with an electric motor and achieve system outputs of 313 hp (230 kW) and 381 hp (280 kW) as well as an electric range of up to 120 kilometers.
The GLC 300 de, whose four-cylinder diesel and electric motor achieve a system output of 197 hp (145 kW), is just as far. The 4.0-liter V8 from the current AMG GLC 63 no longer makes it into the Mercedes GLC Coupe. All engine variants are delivered with an automatic transmission.
2023 Mercedes GLC Coupe Interior
We are also familiar with the design of the cockpit with its free-standing “widescreen” monitor from the C-Class, which is 9.5 to 11.9 inches in size depending on the equipment. For the first time, the Mercedes GLC Coupe offers a steering rear axle that is available as an option.
Compared to the C-Class, however, the steering angle at the wheel is not a maximum of 2.5 but 4.5 degrees. The turning circle is reduced by 90 centimeters to 10.9 meters. The new four-link suspension at the front and a multi-link suspension at the rear should already ensure a high level of comfort and driving pleasure with the basic chassis – air suspension is also available as an option.
Further optimizations compared to the current GLC relate to the material appearance and noise comfort. It is still unclear how all this will affect the price of the Mercedes GLC Coupé 2023.
