Mercedes-Benz adds GLC 200

Horowhenua Chronicle - - LOCAL CLASSIFIEDS -

Mercedes-Benz has ex­tended the ap­peal of its GLC mid­size SUV fam­ily with the in­tro­duc­tion of a new en­try level model.

Avail­able in the SUV bodystyle — but not the GLC Coupe — the new GLC 200 SUV low­ers the New Zealand mar­ket en­try point to the GLC range to $82,900.

The GLC 250 SUV re­mains at $96,900 to be­come the sec­ond tier of the GLC lineup.

The new en­try model is pow­ered by a 2.0-litre, four­cylin­der tur­bocharged petrol en­gine de­vel­op­ing 135kW out­put and 300Nm of torque. It drives via the 9G-Tronic nine-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion and in a first for the MercedesBenz GLC range it is rear­wheel-drive rather than be­ing equipped with the 4Matic all-wheel-drive sys­tem.

Stan­dard fea­tures in­clude Park­ing Pilot with a 360-de­gree cam­era, an Easy Pack tail­gate, En­ter­tain­ment sys­tem with 7.0-inch colour dis­play and touch­pad con­trol, satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem, dig­i­tal ra­dio, me­dia in­ter­face with smart­phone in­te­gra­tion, key­less start, elec­tric front seats, black ash wood trim, Ar­tico up­hol­stery, LED head-lights, Ac­tive Park­ing As­sist, Dy­namic Se­lect driv­ing mode se­lec­tor, and 19-inch al­loy wheels.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the GLC 200 is equipped with a suite of Mercedes-Benz safety fea­tures in­clud­ing nine airbags, Pre-Safe ac­ci­dent an­tic­i­pa­tory sys­tem, Col­li­sion Preven­tion As­sist Plus, At­ten­tion As­sist, and Blind Spot As­sist (pas­sive).

“Fol­low­ing the launch of the AMG GLC 63 S ear­lier this year, we are ex­cited to bring the fi­nal vari­ant of the GLC range to New Zealand,” said Ben Gif­fin, Mercedes-Benz New Zealand ex­ec­u­tive gen­eral man­ager.

“The GLC range now of­fers some­thing for any cus­tomer, pro­vid­ing the widest range of model vari­ants in the in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar lux­ury SUV seg­ment.

“The new GLC 200 of­fers the best value in the com­pet­i­tive lux­ury mid-size seg­ment, while the AMG GLC 63 S re­mains the only mid-size SUV avail­able with a V8 twin turbo pow­er­train.”

The GLC range com­prises GLC 250 petrol and GLC 250d diesel four cylin­der mod­els and the per­for­mance MercedesAMG GLC 43 and GLC 63 S mod­els with a price range now from the new $82,900 en­try point to the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe at $189,900.
