Mercedes-Benz unveils C253 GLC Coupe facelift

KUALA LUMPUR: Mercedes-Benz has finally revealed the C253 GLC Coupe facelift, which comes with an updated design, a new 48-volt mild hybrid engine, and MBUX system. This new GLC Coupe facelift stands next to the updated X253 GLC that was showcased in late February, this year. Prior to this, the company has done a number of revelations at the Geneva Motor Show 2019  including the CLA Shooting Brake and Concept EQV.

The exterior of the car has received a number of tweaks. The grille is filled with numerous chrome pins. At the centre of the grille sits the brand’s logo. The LED High-Performance headlamps are standard and come with LED light strips. The LED strips run along the edges of the unit and also act as DRLs. Moreover, the lower-end is highlighted by a chrome skid plate.

The rear end of the facelift flaunts LED taillights, which is partitioned by the boot lid and the rest extends a bit towards the side profile. The taillights are illuminated by two ring-shaped strips. Furthermore, the two exhaust exits are also revised with chrome bezels.

Ingressing inside, one would be welcomed with a more or less similar design. However, just like the X253 GLC facelift, this coupe is also bestowed with the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system. The MBUX can be operated in a number of ways that include - using of the new multifunction steering wheel, gesture control, “Hey Mercedes” voice prompt along with a few other options. Other changes include a 7-inch touchscreen display with a 10.25-inch panel as the other alternative.
