The Mercedes-Benz GLC — part of the SUV 5-doors series and the 1 Generation (253) — is a one-of-a-kind vehicle born between the years of 2015 and 2019. This vehicle of German origin offers a blend of style, comfort, and thoroughly engineered performance, worthy of its Mercedes-Benz label. With its 5 seats and a generous fuel tank capacity of 13 gallons, the GLC provides ample interior space and distance coverage, appropriate for both day-to-day drives and long-distance touring. It’s engineered to keep up with every movement thanks to its independent, spring back suspension that ensures a smoother ride.
At the heart of the GLC lies a formidable power unit — a turbocharged (Turbine boost type), direct injection, inline petrol engine. This workhorse champions a cylinder bore of 3.237 inches and a stroke cycle of 3.588 millimeters. It houses four valves in each of the 4 cylinders, leading to a total of 16 valves. This setup generates a substantial 245 horsepower (Hp) at 5,500 revolutions per minute (Rpm) and a maximum power of 241.3836 Hp. The GLC’s engine manages an impressive torque turnover at a rather low 1,300 Rpm, demonstrating its performance capabilities early on in the rev range.
Part of the appeal of owning a Mercedes-Benz GLC is the superior and advanced automatic transmission that houses 9 gears. With the full drive wheel setup, navigating through various road conditions is a piece of cake. The GLC surprises with an acceleration of 0-60 mph in an impressive 10 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 147 mph — figures that convey this SUV’s raw power and refined engineering. When it comes to fuel, the GLC necessitates a 95 fuel grade, facilitating efficient combustion and contributing to the vehicle’s well-rounded performance. Brought to life in Germany, the GLC truly exemplifies German engineering’s precision, innovation, and attention to detail. The Mercedes-Benz GLC isn’t just a car; it is a testament of luxury paired with power and performance.
