A raft of significant updates, including key drivetrain improvements, expanded dimensions and a packed standard equipment list mark the launch of the 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC Coupé.
To be offered in just one trim level, the new GLC Coupé features proportional updates that make it 31mm longer, and an 5mm higher than the previous model. Track widths have grown by 6mm (front) and 23mm (rear).
As a result, luggage capacity grows to 545-litres with the rear seats in place, and to 1,490-litres with the seats folded. Along with an automatic tailgate, changes such as acoustic optimisation for the bodyshell and windscreen make for a quiet driving experience.
The GLC 300 4MATIC Coupé now also comes loaded with a mild hybrid with 48-volt technology and an integrated starter-generator. This is paired to a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, delivering 190kW of power and 400Nm of torque.
Both work in conjunction with a 9-speed auto and 4MATIC all-wheel traction. There’s also an over-boost function capable of delivering an extra 17kW and 200Nm for a short period. Inside, you’ll find a head-up display and heated electric front seats, with memory.
In addition, a panoramic sunroof is standard for the first time. Externally, the GLC Coupé further differentiates itself from its GLC SUV sibling with distinctive 20-inch AMG 5-spoke light-alloy wheels, and Night Package exterior trim enhancements in black.
Sport suspension features, while safety comes in the form of nine airbags and a Mercedes-Benz’s Pre-Safe accident package, which includes active lane-keeping assist, blind spot assist, traffic sign assist, active distance assist, and cruise control.
A parking package that includes a 360-degree camera, active parking assist, and LED high-performance headlights with adaptive high beam assist. The GLC 300 Coupé also features a dedicated Off-Road mode included via Dynamic Select.
A transparent bonnet function utilises cameras beneath the vehicle to present a virtual image of ground conditions directly in front of and beneath the car. AMG Line exterior and AMG body styling, plus aluminium-look running boards with rubber studs also feature.
Inside, you’ll find an advanced sound system, a multifunction Nappa leather sports steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless charging, heat-insulating dark tinted glass, keyless entry and start, and a space-saver spare tyre.
An elegant dashboard is paired with a portrait 11.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system that provides easy access to navigation, audio, telephony and climate control settings. It even has a fingerprint scanner for each driver to personalise their setup.
Turbine-inspired air vents, and quality finishes complete the interior. The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC Coupé can be ordered from November 24, and is priced at $113,900 plus on-roads. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
