2020 Mercedes GLC 300 - Practical And Comfort Luxury SUV

2020 Mercedes GLC 300 SUV - Drive, Interior and Exterior. Color: Brilliant Blue Metallic. Subscribe.

The crucial feature of the M 264 two-liter four-cylinder engine from Mercedes- Benz is the increased output at significantly lower fuel consumption. In the GLC 300 and GLC 300 4MATIC, the M 264 four-cylinder engine replaces the M 274 predecessor engine.

The new engine generation is a crucial component for reducing CO2 emissions and is a systematic advancement with regard to lowering consumption.

The four-cylinder engine is combined with 4MATIC all-wheel drive and the 9G- TRONIC automatic transmission, which supports both a dynamic and a fuel- saving driving style.

An SUV that lives up to its name - as usual, the GLC is convincing on almost any type of ground and in the most adverse weather conditions. The DYNAMIC SELECT system with expanded functions responds to the individual requests of the driver with regard to the handling and the requirements posed by the particular road conditions. The 4MATIC all-wheel drive has also been newly developed from the ground up. The three-stage design of ESP® with a wider spread now offers even more dynamics in the “Sport” and “Sport +” drive modes, once again proving the versatility of the GLC.

Refined materials, precision workmanship and flowing shapes – that is what characterizes the interior of the GLC. It is characterized by flowing surfaces in connection with clear lines and proportions. The center console features an elegant trim component that exemplifies supreme craftsmanship, which is available in two new wood trims – Natural Grain Grey Oak and Natural Grain Walnut.

The multifunction steering wheel is available in two versions and has been completely revised. Its distinctive spoke design conveys an even sportier character. In addition, its operation of Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® and the Touch Control Buttons for controlling the instrument cluster and the multimedia system as well as the acoustic input feedback send a clear signal pointing to the future.

The user can operate the multimedia functions using single-finger and multi- touch control on the Touchpad on the center console. It serves as an alternative to Voice Control and offers the possibility to enter letters, numbers or special characters manually. The Touchpad surface not only provides clear haptic feedback, but also acoustic feedback.

The scope and level in the new model have been advanced, thus enhancing driver support with regard to safety and comfort. The available Driver Assistance Package in the GLC includes, for example:

- Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® with the functions:
- Braking for stationary vehicles
- Expanded automatic restarting in a traffic jam in conjunction with Active Parking Assist and navigation
- Active Steering Assist with the functions:
- Active Emergency Stop Assist – with automatic unlocking and sending of an SOS call to the MB Emergency Call Center after vehicle comes to a stop in the event that the driver is unresponsive while Active Steering Assist is active
- Active Lane Change Assist in conjunction with navigation
- Active Speed Limit Assist with response to change in speed limit in conjunction with Traffic Sign Assist
- Route-Based Speed Adaptation adjusts ahead of bends, roundabouts and toll plazas, as well as before making a turn or exiting a highway; reduction of vehicle speed also for route event “end of traffic jam,” in conjunction with navigation
- Evasive Steering Assist
- Active Lane Keeping Assist
- Active Blind Spot Assist
- Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function
- PRE-SAFE® PLUS

When Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC with Route-Based Speed Adaptation is activated, the new GLC is able to recognize and respond to traffic jams or slow-moving traffic with the help of information from LiveTraffic before the driver becomes aware of this traffic obstruction. When a traffic jam is detected (and if the driver does not choose a different response), DISTRONIC reduces the speed as a precaution. This is complemented by an improved Active Lane Keeping Assist as well as by additional functions of Active Emergency Stop Assist.

Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function reduces the risk of a potential accident when making a turn, for example, if the driver fails to see oncoming vehicles. If there is a danger of a collision with oncoming traffic when making a turn across the road, the GLC can brake at the speeds typical of such maneuvers. Braking intervention takes place if the driver signals the intention to make a turn and the vehicle can brake to a stop before crossing the lane markings. Oncoming vehicles are detected by the long-range radar sensor in the front and the Stereo Multipurpose Camera.
