MERCEDES BENZ – SECOND TO NONE
The GLC 300 4MATIC gets as close to perfection as possible with a streamlined body that screams quintessentially Mercedes Benz. It houses a 370Nm torque-intense, 245-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-Liter, 4-cylinder in-line, gasoline engine that propels the car from a standstill to 100km/h in 6.5 seconds. The all-wheel drive comes paired with a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with shift paddles and a dynamic control that allows you to choose between four modes, namely: ECO, Comfort, Sport & Sport+ and individual.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN YOU ARE NOT STUCK IN TRAFFIC
You would not mind being stuck in a gridlock for hours in this car, that being said, what all the motor vehicle jargons mean for you is what you will be getting out of this purchase. The GLC S0 4MATI C SUV boasts a top speed of 220km/h with a mileage of 21 miles per gallon in the city and 28 miles per gallon on the highway which boils down to approximately 8.9 kilometers per liter and 11.9 kilometers per liter, respectively. This is possible because of the ECO start/stop system which automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. To control the car at high speeds, the GLC 300 4MATIC is equipped with electric suspension disc brakes in all four wheels, where the discs are internally ventilated. Transitioning from start to stop has never been this fluid while the AGILITY control suspension.
The front of the four door SUV might remind you of the C-class sedan, but it is the shape of the bonnet and the LED headlamps that give it a unique character and make it a separate entity from the sedan. The front grille too is more like the C-Class and bears resemblance to the other cars from this family, so it carries the DNA of a reputable line of cars. The rear of the car bears tail lamps that are sleek in design, twin exhaust pipes and a shape that is pleasant to the eyes and the car comes in the color of your choice. The GLC 300 4MATIC comes with AMG 5 twin spoke light alloy wheels as well. So, all in all, you will be getting the best of both worlds in terms of a sporty and elegant exterior appearance. But, the highlight of this already spectacular car is its luxe interior.
Unparalleled in the opulence it provides at the price point, every nook and cranny of its interior is immaculate in detail. Starting from the full cloth headliner, leatherette upholstery, and panoramic sliding sunroof to the high gloss brown line structure lime wood trim, the interior is equal parts luxurious and comfortable. The driver’s seat is also furnished with a 14-way power adjustment system. The center console has a 7-inch infotainment screen with a 20-CD stereo, two USB P° Bluetooth and an SD card slot.
