Mid-life update includes tweaked face, improved multi-media system and new diesel engine.
Mercedes-Benz Thailand has updated the GLC mid-size SUV with tweaked looks, new diesel engine and revised multi-media system.
Also applied on the GLC Coupe derivative, changes on the skin primarily include new LED lights and grille. Inside, the infotainment has been updated to accompany the brand’s latest MBUX system that allows users to operate various functions using voice control.
The bigger news come under the bonnet. In place of the OM651-coded 2.1-litre diesel used in the pre-facelift GLC is a newer OM654-designated 2.0-litre unit already applied in the C- and E-Class.
In GLC220d variation, the four-cylinder diesel generates 194hp compared to the previous 204hp GLC250d and 170hp GLC220d.
Prices are more or less the same as before with the entry-level trim going for 3.239 million baht and AMG Dynamic 3.699 million baht. The GLC220d Coupe, pictured below, comes in only AMG Dynamic costing 4.04 million baht.
The most direct rivals for these two Mercedes SUVs include the BMW X3 and X4, both powered by 190hp 2.0-litre diesel in 20d guise. The X3 is priced at 3.329-3.629 million baht, while the coupe-like X4 asks for 3.969 million baht.
