In great shape: A midsize SUV that's all lean muscle.
Has your SUV been working out? People can't help but notice the muscular body of the GLC. Honed in the wind tunnel and tuned on the track, its long wheelbase, big wheels and wide track add up to more space, stability and sportiness. And from its crisp proportions to its chrome details, it attracts admiring eyes like it's drawn to the road.
In your own way: Distinctive looks inside and out.
Take it to the next level. The Sport Package adds AMG body styling and 19-inch wheels to your GLC, along with a topstitched dash and doors. The Night Package adds dramatic black styling elements plus 19-inch or 20-inch AMG wheels. And available cabin amenities include rich leather, ventilated front seats, multicolor ambient lighting, and more.

In good hands: Exceptional luxuries, exquisitely tailored.
There's something for all your senses in the GLC's menu of innovative options, from handcrafted designo Nappa leather to heated front and rear seats. Rear-door sunshades add cool privacy, while a giant Panorama roof welcomes in the sun and stars. You can even enjoy ionizer-purified cabin air, and infuse it with subtle aromatheraphy.

On your guard: Virtual eyes on the driver ahead, and the one at the wheel.
For decades, Mercedes-Benz has predicted the safety standards of the future. Your GLC can literally look ahead, and 360 degrees around, to spot hazards in your path. A team of standard and optional systems can alert the driver, assist in braking, and even respond autonomously to help avoid collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians.
At your side: Advanced options ease your journey, from cruising to parking.
Even the most advanced safety systems may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. Systems do not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of other vehicles and pedestrians. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for system alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. See Operator's Manual for system operating speeds and additional information and warnings. Some systems may be optional on some models.

Pump it up: Turbo-4 sips fuel, pours on the power and torque.
The GLC 300 takes to the street, or the hills, with the responsive power of a state-of-the-art 241-hp turbo-4. With Direct Injection, multispark ignition and a fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop system, it outputs 273 lb-ft of torque over a wide rpm range. And while it's quick to launch and eager to merge, it also goes easy on the fuel and the planet.
Turn it up: Standard selective damping or class-exclusive air suspension
The precise 4-wheel multilink suspension features an innovative selective damping system that instantly firms up in corners while keeping the ride silky. An available AIR BODY CONTROL rides and corners on air. It self-levels at all four wheels, offers adjustable ride height, and can even lower to ease cargo loading.
