The "4-door coupe" version of Mercedes-Benz's GLC SUV is now available in South Africa. Herewith specification and pricing details of the range...
The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is a direct rival to the BMW X4, Range Rover Evoque and Lexus NX. The range, which sits alongside the standard GLC SUV, comprises 6 models, with a brace of turbodiesels at the start and ending off with the mighty GLC 43.
The line-up begins with the GLC 220d with a 2.1-litre 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine that produces 125 kW and 400 Nm. Then you get the GLC 250, which offers a sporty 155 kW and 350 Nm (courtesy of a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol motor) and then there is the GLC 250d, which utilises the same engine as its 220d sibling, but produces higher engine outputs (150 kW and 500 Nm). The GLC 350d boasts a mighty turbodiesel V6 with 190 kW and all diesel-fed powerplants feature AdBlue injection to reduce emissions.
On the turbopetrol side there's a GLC 300 4MATIC Coupé with 180 kW and the flagship GLC 43 AMG, which Mercedes-Benz claims will accelerate from zero to 100 kph in just 4.9 seconds, courtesy of its meaty biturbo V6 engine that pumps out peak outputs of 270 kW and 520 Nm of torque.
All models come equipped with Mercedes-Benz's 4Matic all-wheel drive technology and, as is customary with luxury German vehicles, the GLC Coupe can be specified to heart's content with optional features that will make your GLC coupe stand out from the rest.
