The popular compact luxury crossover is going to receive a mid-cycle refresh for the following year. According to the latest reports, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC is going to develop with a nice amount of novelties. The GLC is one of the company’s most well-known models, so we do not doubt that the company will put a lot of attention to make this crossover even better and more popular. The current generation is on the market for about four years and it seems like the present year is perfect for a mid-cycle update.
We are just about to see the recently facelifted C-Class sedan will inspire a nice number of changes and the majority of them. Count on new external details, as well as on a lot of revisions on the interior. Latest reports also indicate changes under the hood. Familiar engines will receive a nice energy increase.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Redesign
Expect to see the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC sometime in the next quarter of the year. A common thing for all mid-cycle updates is that exterior changes are most notable. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC won’t be an exception. This will be a normal facelift. The testing model has been spotted, so we can easily see which changes are about to come altered. The new model will include revisions on the grille, as well as using a reshaped front bumper.
In the side, we will see new side skirts, while the rear end is going to suffer in areas like taillights, rear end, etc. Commonly for facelifts, the new model will even come with new wheels and few more colors in the offer. On the other side, mechanics and general design are just about to remain unchanged. This model will continue to ride the same chassis and feature the same dimensions. Of course, count on two body styles from the offer. Besides in typical SUV design, this model also comes as a coupe-crossover.
Interior Design and Features
The interior of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC will also come with different interesting changes. Of course, the base layout will remain the same, but we count on a lot of novelties on the dashboard. Of course, the very first thing that comes to mind is that a new touchscreen. Regrettably, we won’t see a new dual-screen design from the A-Class, but a new screen from the newly revised C-Class. Apart from a new center stack, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC will even feature a new touchpad in the middle console, as well as a new instrument cluster. Finally, count on a new steering wheel, using more mounted controllers.
Rest of the cabin will likely remain the same, which isn’t a bad thing. This model is one of the class leaders when it comes to materials and overall build quality. All areas are soft on touch and you’re able to observe the existence of materials like timber and leatherette currently in most basic models.
The cargo volume is fairly much a class common. On the other side, a coupe variant is a little bit tight, which means you can count on just 17.6 cubic feet supporting the back-row seats and 49.4 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded. Another area where we expect to alter is a list of standard gear. However, remember that the present model is currently well-equipped and even most basic models include a full load of standard equipment. Things like 14-way adjustable power seats with heating are standard, as well as a power liftgate. Regarding tech features, you can count on a new touchscreen port, two USB interfaces, HD Radio, and Bluetooth.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Engine
When it comes to the powertrain, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC will continue with recognizable engines in the offer. There is a broad offer of engines in the offer and a number of them will include a fine power increase. This primarily refers to more basic alternatives.
Therefore, a familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four will include additional 14 horses so that a max output will go up to 255 hp. A 3.0-liter twin turbo will also include a wonderful power increase, from 362 to 385 horsepower. The remainder of the lineup, such as AMG models, is about to keep in the same manner.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Release Date and Price
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC will come just a bit earlier than normal. We will likely see it sometime in the third quarter of the year. We don’t anticipate bigger changes in price, so base models must go around 41.000 bucks.
