  • by

Here’s what you need to know before you buy the redesigned 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC or Mercedes-AMG GLC 63/63 S. Base M.S.R.P. – $42,500 (GLC 300) / $76,500 (AMG 63)

Marcedes most popular vehicle has been updated and we’re gonna find out exactly what that means i’m kris moto academics and today we’re gonna take a look at the 2020 mercedes-benz glc introduced in 2015 and now updated for 2020 what was once the most popular suv a mercedes portfolio is now the company’s most popular vehicle but as we all know the increasing appetite for

Crossovers and suvs has continued to lessen the interest in cars making this glc refresh a big deal so as before there are two variants of the glc you have the glc 300 and then there’s also the amg version we’re here with the amg example but both versions of the glc have been revamped on the exterior from the grille to the front and rear fascia to the now standard

Led headlights in all it’s still recognizable as a glc but just in a little bit cleaner package depending upon the model and trim 18 to 21 inch wheels are available and i think the proportions in stance of even the more standard tlc looks really nice not to mention the matte gray on one of the cars we drove was rather impressive hey i’m dana hedrick and i’m in

Product management here at mercedes-benz usa and i’m gonna introduce you to our all-new inline four-cylinder engine in the glc 300 this is our new m26 4 engine it makes 255 horsepower 273 pound-feet of torque and it’s made it up with our 9 speed transmission which really gives you a nice smooth delivery here in the glc it really has a nice peppy power to it and the

Car feels really agile and it’s really fun to drive this new turbo 2 liter has 14 more horsepower than the outgoing powerplant helping it to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in 6.1 seconds which is a few tenths faster than before highway results for fuel economy are slightly increased as well with 22 miles per gallon in the city 29 miles per gallon on the highway

And 24 miles per gallon combined for the rear wheel drive suv and 21 miles per gallon city 28 miles per gallon highway and 24 miles per gallon combined for the 4matic coupe and suv while the glc isn’t an all-new vehicle there are quite a few new and welcome features inside for starters the touch controls have been added to the steering wheel but my favorite

Is the inclusion of the larger displays both on the instrument panel and on the infotainment unit that we’ve come to love in some of mercedes’ more expensive vehicles a new remote touch interface is present as is mbu x with hey mercedes voice control that we’ve already introduced to you in the new gla i can’t really speak to what lesser options vehicles look like

But the ones with the bells and whistles that we experience this time around are as appointed and luxurious as you’d expect from mercedes like the interior but i’m behind the wheel didn’t present any surprises either the cabin was quiet and comfortable and while not what i would consider fast by today’s standards the engine provides autumn omentum you need for

Daily driving and the transmission finds each gear quickly and smoothly the steel suspension is tuned for comfort and agility and after driving literally hundreds of miles in the glc i can say it’s a vehicle that you wouldn’t mind driving hundreds of miles at a time in there’s new driver technologies such as active lane change assist that helps you change lanes with

The press of a button and blind spot warning with exit assist warns you of approaching traffic before you open your door but one of the neat party tricks can be found on the nav screen in conjunction with the audible directions during a route and augmented video overlay is also present highlighting the street names and showing you where to turn in real-time it’s

Really cool and functional too and no i haven’t forgotten about the amg glc 63 and 63s they drive just as well they’re just faster and make more noise doing it the coupe and suv 63 of both powered by an amg 4 liter biturbo v8 that makes 469 horsepower and forward 279 pound-feet of torque that’s good for zero to 60 time of 3.8 seconds an electronically limited top

Speed of 155 miles per hour the engine in the 63s coupe has been massaged a 503 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque and complete 60 miles per hour just 3.6 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 170 4 miles per hour that’s moving for relatively heavy fertility and all amg glc s have an amg speedshift mct nine speed transmission it’s no surprise

That i prefer the driving dynamics of the amg more but we’ll have to wait for the full review to see if it’s truly worth your money so there you have it guys the newly updated 2020 mercedes-benz glc now as you can see it’s starting to rain out here so i’ll leave you with a couple of quick things first the glc 300 suv starts at $42,500 and it’s on sale right now

This amg version the amg 63 well that one starts a little bit higher at seventy six thousand five hundred dollars that’ll go on sale a little bit later as always if you like this video give us a thumbs up if you haven’t done so already by all means subscribe so you don’t miss it we have coming up next i’m chris tavano academics thanks for watching
