    Towards the sides, the updated GLC features optional aluminium-look running boards with rubber studs, which reinforces its character. They are positioned on the side skirts at a certain height and assist the passengers in getting in and out.

     20-inch AMG 5-spoke light-alloy wheels

The dashboard and beltlines are wrapped in ARTICO man-made leather in a black nappa-look finish, as a part of the AMG-Line package.

    MBUX multimedia system

These include multimedia, navigation (with augmented reality and live traffic information), Hey Mercedes voice assistant, climate controls (for Thermatic dual-zone system), and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

    In terms of performance, the new GLC runs from zero to 100 kmph in 6.2 seconds and hits a top speed of 240 kmph.

The former works in tandem with a 360-degree camera and offers a “transparent bonnet”: A virtual view under the front of the SUV, including the wheels and their steering position is displayed on the central screen. It enables the driver to tackle all sorts of obstacles on the path such as large stones or deep potholes at an early stage.
