The exterior exudes an even sportier design with the imposing diamond radiator grille and at the rear features the tailpipe trim integrated into the bumper and the streamlined LED rear tail lamps.

Inside, the Mercedes-Benz GLC 200 and GLC 300 4MATIC are adorned with the Exclusive Line and AMG Line packages with the Artico leather upholstery featured in both variants.

The Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) comes standard across the GLC line-up with a fully-digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster display and the media display touch screen is now measured at 10.25 inches.

Meanwhile, the cabin of the new GLC 300 Coupé is lined with leather upholstery and aluminium trim. It features the MBUX and Mercedes me connect service with a fully-digital cockpit including navigation display.




The GLC range is powered by the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine (M264) paired to a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission but each variant is tuned differently. As such, the GLC 200 outputs 197hp and 320Nm of torque. The GLC 300 4MATIC produces 258hp and 370Nm of torque and lastly, the GLC 300 Coupé produces 258hp and 370Nm of torque.

Mercedes Benz Malaysia also announced the Mercedes me connect (Mmc) for owners to remain connected to their vehicles whether it is starting the engine, getting customer support or simply checking their fuel level.

To begin using Mercedes me connect, owners are required to define and activate their vehicle on the Mercedes me portal where they will be conveniently guided through all the necessary steps.

The Mercedes me connect application can be downloaded from both, the Apple App Store as well as the Google Play Store. The application is designed to work with Android and Apple devices, including the Apple Watch.

The service will be made available in 2020 onwards, starting with the new generation GLC range.

For customers with Mercedes-Benz vehicles built after 2002 without connected functionality, they will still be able to enjoy the experience of connected features through the Mercedes me Adapter. The Mercedes me Adapter is priced at RM250 and will be available in the first quarter of 2020.

“With the new generation Mercedes-Benz SUV line-up, we are redefining the standards of luxury SUV segment in Malaysia by combining a different level of mobility and innovation. As part of our product offensive strategy, the line-up offers our customers comfort and luxury beyond what you would expect from an SUV, in addition to the spaciousness, practicality as well as the performance,” said Vice President, Sales & Marketing Passenger Cars, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, Michael Jopp.
