First Look: Impressive Features of the 2017 GLC Coupe
Need more room in your vehicle but don’t want to buy a van? Want something sporty but something you can still fit more than two people in? Mercedes-Benz has presented a happy medium between size and sport in the form of the 2017 GLC Coupe. This crossover has the size and power of an SUV, the agility and handling of a coupe, and the shape of a large hatchback. This hybrid of a vehicle is bound to meet many, if not all, of the specifications you’re looking for in a new vehicle. Introducing the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.
If you’re looking for something that has the size and power of an SUV but the handling of a much sportier car, then you can’t do better than the GLC. The turbo four engine, capable of peaking at 241 horsepower, uses advanced Direct Injection and multi-spark ignition to create an acceleration that can take you from 0 to 60 in just over six seconds. The agile and adaptive chassis is perfect for handling everything from rough country roads to the streets of your neighborhood.
The GLC Coupe also introduces the Dynamic Select system, which allows you to match the Coupe’s driving style with your own preferred driving style. For example, if you choose the Eco mode, or maybe the Sport+ mode, the GLC will reprofile the transmission, and adjust the throttle and chassis to give whatever driving experience you want.
In addition to its compilation of handling, power, and reliability, the GLC Coupe also comes equipped with an impressive compilation of technology. A touch screen and console-mounted controller make it easy to access the many entertainment and navigation features that the Coupe has to offer. And speaking of navigation, the Coupe also comes with top of the line heads-up display technology, which projects important information directly onto your windshield for convenient and safe viewing.
As with all new Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the 2017 GLC also gives owners access to Mercedes Me, a compilation of programs that connect you to your car and to Mercedes-Benz itself. Features of Mercedes Me allow you to do everything from remotely parking your car from your smartphone to renting a smart car directly from Mercedes to get you around town.
All of the shiny bells and whistles mean little if those within the vehicle aren’t kept safe. In addition to a strong frame and airbags that surround the interior of the vehicle, other safety features include adaptive cruise control (which adds to standard cruise control by keeping you at a safe distance from cars ahead of you), parking assist and blind spot assist, radar-based collision detection, and stability control. Not only will you be able to cruise in your own style, but also in safety.
