Sept 14,2023,Kuala Lumpur.- Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has unveiled the locally-assembled new GLC 300 4MATIC at a retail price of RM 378,888 inclusive of 10% Sales Tax (for Peninsular Malaysia).
The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC is assembled in the brand’s production facility in Pekan, Pahang.
Bettina Plangger, VP of Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars Malaysia & SEA II said, “With over 12,000 units sold since 2016, the GLC maintains its status as Mercedes-Benz’s best-selling SUV in Malaysia, offering a harmonious blend of luxury, versatility, and driving pleasure. The introduction of the locally-assembled GLC marks a significant milestone in our journey, reaffirming our unwavering commitment to delivering uncompromised quality to our valued customers in Malaysia. This development is a testament to our customer-centric approach, as we continually strive to provide our valued customers with the best possible experiences.”
The new GLC is immediately recognisable as a member of the Mercedes-Benz SUV family. The expressive design of the AMG Line adds a sporty and exclusive touch to the exterior. The body design is characterised by a full, spanned surface design enriched with precisely shaped edges in the sides. These edges not only highlight the vehicle’s proportions but also accentuate the muscular wheel arches and creates a balance between elegance and off-road capability. The new GLC comes equipped with polished aluminium roof rails and aluminium-look running boards with rubber studs. The AMG bodystyling consists of AMG front apron with sporty air intakes and chrome trim element along with a diffuser-look AMG rear apron. The addition of the Panoramic sliding sunroof provides a bright and pleasant ambience in the interior. When viewed from the outside, the large sliding sunroof likewise makes a unique visual impression, as it lends lightness and exclusivity to the exterior.
Other features of the sporty, confident appearance are the wide track and flush 20-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels and the radiator grille showcasing the distinctive Mercedes-Benz pattern. The new rear design comes with the simulated underguard in chrome look, the tailpipe trims in chrome as well as the two-part rear lights with three-dimensional design, which are connected by a glossy black trim element.
The new GLC comes with DIGITAL LIGHT, constantly adapting the illumination of the road to the lighting conditions, the traffic situation, the course of the road and the weather. The outcome is outstanding visibility for the driver while not affecting the visibility of fellow road users.
The GLC 300 4MATIC is available as a sole variant featuring the AMG Line interior, that lends your vehicle a more visible and tangible sense of sportiness.
The AMG Line includes several key features such as ARTICO man-made leather upholstery in black, MICROCUT microfibre and the AMG sports pedals. The multifunction sports steering wheel in nappa leather stands out with its distinctive design, featuring double spokes in the horizontal position and a flattened bottom section, drawing inspiration from motorsport and enhancing the cockpit’s dynamic aesthetic appeal.
The dashboard is clearly structured: the upper section exhibits a wing-like shape profile with newly designed flattened round nozzles, reminiscent of an aircraft’s engine nacelles. The lower section has a generous trim area that seamlessly blends into the curved centre console with a metal-structure finish. Positioned in front of the driver, the 12.3-inch (31.2 cm) high-resolution display screen appears to hover freely before the wing profile and trim area. The 11.9-inch (30.2 cm) central display rises seamlessly and without joints from the centre console creating a floating appearance above the trim area. Both the dashboard and screen surfaces are subtly angled towards the driver for optimal visibility and convenience.
The new GLC upholds its high standards in every aspect. For instance, the latest generation of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system elevates the vehicle’s digital capabilities and intelligence. Full-screen navigation gives the driver the best possible route guidance equipped with MBUX Augmented Reality. Experience greater audio performance via the exquisite Burmester® 3D surround sound system with 15 high-performance speakers tuned to match the vehicle interior.
The increased rear overhang results in a significantly larger luggage capacity of 620 litres, offering practicality for daily use, family vacations, and everyday transport needs. The GLC has HANDS-FREE ACCESS making loading and unloading a stress-free process. The sensor area beneath the rear bumper detects a kicking motion with the foot allowing the tailgate to open and close with a contactless function.
The GLC features the new Parking package with 360-degree camera and the functions of Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC. This combination ensures optimal visibility from all angles and facilitates the full parking process. In off-road mode, the GLC with 360-degree camera provides a “transparent bonnet” on the central display, offering a virtual view beneath the front of the vehicle, inclusive of the front wheels and their steering position.
