Before you put your money in the bank, buy this car
There’s more to this SUV than meets the eye
Jul 12, 2016
If there’s anything you should do before putting the bucks in for the most coveted car of this year— you have to get to know it… close and personal. The Mercedes-Benz GLC is the ultimate SUV that has been designed with extraordinary qualities that, at first glance, will be overshadowed by just how great the car looks.
However, when you begin to inspect the features inside out, the mysteries just unravel on their own. It embodies the combination of modern luxury, mesmerizing design elements and offers ultimate driving pleasure for the lucky riders who get to own one of these beauties. Here’s what you should know about what could be your future set of premium quality leather-upholstered wheels.
A lot of the characteristics—interior as well as exterior—are based off of the Mercedes’ own C-Class sedan model, giving the car the luxurious interiors while maintaining the athletic feel it’s originally intended for. This makes it one of the only full-size SUVs in the Mercedes’ model line-up that is produced in Europe.
Like any other Mercedes model, the GLC is also equipped with active parking assist with PARKTRONIC, attention assist and PRE-SAFE® system. Buckle up in what could be the safest ride cruising out on the streets.
It’s oh so light
The GLC weighs an incredible 80 kilograms lesser unlike its predecessor, the GLK, thanks to the lightest body shell in Mercedes’ segment. With five driving modes of the Dynamic Select, take the wheel and drive on uneven terrain or road that you set out on without any hiccups. And that’s not even the best part about the GLC: while you change between the driving modes of Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual, the height will automatically adjust itself corresponding to the drive mode, due to the upgraded air suspension.
You’ll agree that you’ve had problems with navigating your car in traffic and parking before because the steering wheel’s stubborn tight grip refuses to work smoothly with you. The GLC on the other hand, is fully set up with electric system giving you a light steering experience while doing the parallel parking like a pro.
Despite spacious interiors, both in the front and in the back, the GLC has all the boot space that your luggage needs. The SUV has a good space to accommodate a person’s head, knees and toes in the backseat. Seems like good news for tall folks who won’t have to complain about being cooped up in the back anymore.
It’s really all that
The SUV is built with a view to provide brilliant on-road as well as off-road expeditions, making it the ultimate car on the streets to watch out for. With the right kind of settings on the interiors lights, you can set the ambience for when you take off on the road. The Mercedes-Benz GLC comes in five different colours, as if you weren’t spoilt enough already with all the features that the car comes with.
A classily built ride
We can all agree that SUVs are known to look a bit burlier than its other car type counterparts. GLC is a completely different story. It’s less about muscle, and more about elegant class giving it a compact and stylish feel. If there’s any luxury car ride that you’re looking forward to, the Mercedes-Benz GLC should be on top of your bucket list.
