Almost a year after the introduction of the GLC's second generation, the German automaker launched the coupe version for it in March 2023 as a 2024 model year.
The sporty-looking GLC Coupe was no longer a surprise for customers, and they were eager to see it in the flesh after its regular-back sibling, the GLC was unveiled in June 2022. With its dynamic image and fresh look, the coupe version of this compact-sized SUV came on the market boasting advanced technologies and engines for every taste. It could also be optioned with an AMG pack.
The 2024 GLC Coupe shared the same design language with its GLC stablemate, featuring similar swept-back headlights with an angular inner side and rounded, raised outer side. In addition, the front fascia wore a broad grille fitted with a mesh and a chromed horizontal slat that supported the center-mounted three-pointed star badge. From its profile, the sloped-down roof and the raked-forward tailgate were the design elements that made it look like a coupe.
The car was fitted with a luxurious yet sporty interior, and the carmaker offered high-bolstered seats as an option. For the dashboard, Mercedes-Benz installed a 12.3" screen for the instrument panel, while atop the center stack, it mounted a second, 11.9" touch-screen. In addition, a color head-up display was offered as an option. Furthermore, it was fitted with the Mercedes me App that could connect to Android or Apple devices. In the back, the headroom was smaller than on the regular GLC, and the trunk was not spectacular. But these were traded for the car's overall appearance.
Under the hood, Mercedes-Benz installed only electrified powerplants, either gasoline or turbo-diesel. In addition, three plug-in hybrids were offered right from the vehicle's launch.
