Mercedes GLC Cover

The first-generation GLC was Mercedes’ compact luxury crossover SUV that slotted itself between the compact GLB, and the mid-size GLE. However, if you’re familiar with Mercedes’ naming convention, you probably know that already just by the name. The GLC made its debut in 2015 for the 2016 model year, with the GLC having run for a good seven years, the German automaker introduced its replacement last year in 2022. And now, it’s on its way to our shore this June.

In a report by Autoindustriya, they state that the official launch date of the Mercedes GLC is at June 21, 2023. Good news for the affluent and wealthy Filipinos as that means a new Merc is only a few weeks away. Unfortunately, we don't have access to official details and local specifications for the all-new GLC at this time. However, what we do know is the dimensions of this luxurious Merc. The length of the vehicle has increased by 60mm, now measuring 4,716 mm from 4,656 mm, while the height has decreased by 4 mm to 1,640 mm from 1,644 mm, on the other hand, the width remains unchanged at 1,890 mm.

In terms of propulsion, there is a possibility that Mercedes-Benz Philippines may introduce the GLC 200 and the GLC 220d, equipped with 48V mild-hybrid engines. The GLC 200 features a 2.0-liter turbo-gasoline engine producing 201 hp and 320 Nm of torque, while the GLC 220d would come with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel engine generating 194 hp and 440 Nm of torque.
