This was revealed through an image of the SUV’s COMAND infotainment system that shows the various driving modes selectable along with a graphic of the car itself. Compared to the outgoing Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class (X204), the second generation X205 GLC-Class will adopt a design language more aligned to the current crop of new Mercedes-Benz models like the C-Class at the front. No surprise then because as the name suggests, the GLC-Class will be the SUV equivalent to the C-Class.
Recently, we reported on a video that shows a thinly disguised GLC roaming the streets, giving us an early glimpse of the car.
The interior is also inspired by the C-Class and will feature a seven-inch display linked to the COMAND infotainment system with a touchpad, control dial interface. Elsewhere, a three-spoke steering wheel, metal-finished air-conditioning vents, and wood grain interior completes the look although the finishes might differ depending on variant and spec.
Serving as the car’s underpinnings is a stretched version of the MRA RWD platform that can also be found in the current-gen C-Class. UK website Auto Express were given the opportunity to test out a prototype of the GLC-Class and found that it is not just limited to road duty but can be used as a real off-road vehicle even before the optional off-road pack is tagged on.
According to the Indian Autos Blog, the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class will make its global debut within the middle of June 2015.
