The next generation of the GLC compact crossover's sporty variant arrives in the second half of 2023 with an electrified powertrain.
The redesigned 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor. The 48-volt mild-hybrid system includes a starter generator integrated into the transmission.
The GLC Coupe competes against premium crossovers including the BMW X4, Porsche Macan, Infiniti QX55 and Audi Q5 Sportback. Mercedes delivered 65,531 GLC crossovers in the U.S. last year, up 26 percent from 2021.
The engine makes 255 hp and propels the crossover from 0 to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds. The electric motor system assists the combustion engine by adding up to 23 hp more.
A new four-link front suspension and a multilink independent rear suspension deliver improved ride comfort and handling, Mercedes said.
