Mercedes-Benz GLC was known previously as GLK. If you live in a country where you drive on the left hand side of the road, you will probably never heard of one or never seen one. GLK was never introduced as a right hand drive version due to engineering and manufacturing costs. However, Mercedes-Benz has now decided to offer the GLC with right hand drive as well.

Why GLC?

Mercedes-Benz decided to rebrand their whole product range and make it sounds more logical. Now GL means that it’s an off-road vehicle and C means that it is based on the C-Class. So you can understand what the product is initially related to. GLC is basically an off-road version of the C-Class.

Also, in the GLC, Mercedes-Benz offers the latest driving assistance and pre-crash system. The GLC is now capable of semi-autonomous driving, in that it can drive by itself up to 60 km/h! Also, radar-guided cruise control now manipulates the steering wheel to keep the vehicle in the centre of the lane. The GLC can also stop by itself if a crash is inevitable. Also, it can also detect cross-traffic and breaks by itself. With these driving assistance systems, GLC has become the safest vehicle on its class! This will be the case until BMW improves the X3.

Suspension?

For the first time, this class offers air suspension. Now you can order your GLC with Air Body Control (Don’t know the difference between the AirMatic ). This system enables the driver to raise and lower the vehicle and improve the ride in off-road conditions.

Off-Road?

GLC is trying its best to offer an off-road option. Similar to the Land Rover Discovery Sport, the GLC Off-Road Engineering package offers five different driving modes for different terrains. It will definitely help you to battle with adverse road conditions, but don’t expect a lot!

The new GLC is ‘way better than the previous GLK. It offers a really high quality interior, and the Mercedes-Benz latest technology. In terms of off-road capabilities, it will do its best, but don’t go for GLC if you are keen on heavy off-road experiences. Is it better than the BMW X3 and the Audi Q5? Yes! Better than the Land Rover Discovery Sport? Yes, as well.
