Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe : More Details

The new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe now gets a revised exterior, updated LED headlights and new creases on the sides. Mercedes has reworked the bonnet as well as the grille. The grille is now larger and the headlamps extend into it. Further, one can also notice the larger wheel arches along with a reprofiling of a few panels.

The Coupe also comes with a sloping roofline that extends to the tailgate. It appears more slanted than regular GLC. The GLC Coupe also gets new LED tail lamps, and a new diffuser with dual tail pipes on the AMG line trim.

On the inside, there is now more space than the GLC thanks to the longer wheelbase and rear overhang. This has liberated more boot space as well.

Otherwise, the interiors are more or less same as the GLC. The dashboard design is new and it consists of a 12.3-inch driver information display and a vertical 11.9-inch infotainment screen. The GLC coupe also gets a new steering wheel and redesigned air vents.
Additionally, Mercedes says they offer higher quality materials to offer luxury and comfort to the passengers. Other optional extras include a panoramic sunroof, head-up display and a 710W Burmester surround sound with 15 speakers.
