A Look At The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV
In a market full of luxury vehicles, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV makes an unforgettable impression on customers. The new GLC offers more-than-ample storage space as the brand’s premier mid-sized SUV is perfect for families on the go. Utilizing state-of-the-art radar technology, the GLC also provides unparalleled safety features for you and your passengers.
Mercedes-Benz details the safety and technology features noting, “GLC safety keeps an eye on your future. Radar helps spot hazards in your path. A team of standard and additional systems can monitor all around you, alert you, help you brake, and even respond on your behalf to help reduce collisions…A high-tech suite of systems is available to help make every move easier. Some can make traffic less stressful, from cruising to changing lanes…”
In fact, the 2017 GLC SUV model earned the highest award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The intelligent body construction smoothly avoided collisions in the IIHS track tests and received accolades for the vehicle’s upgraded headlights. Due to an intelligent mix of aluminum, high- and ultra-high strength steels, the GLC provided a rigid passenger safety compartment surrounded by deformation zones. In a series of five crashworthiness tests, which include small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints testing, the GLC SUV received top ratings. The GLC SUV not only received a “superior” rating overall, but the model was categorized as a Top Safety PICK+ vehicle by IIHS. The 2018 GLC SUV has only improved in safety offerings in the last year.
Even with the safety and family-first focus of the GLC, the vehicle is exceptionally luxurious and ultimately powerful. The interior features fine leather materials and heated rear and front seats. The oversized panorama sunroof lets in the crisp outside air and sunshine. Plus, this Mercedes-Benz smells impeccable (even after the new-car scent fades) utilizing an ionizer-purified, fragrance-infused air system.
Shoppers can choose from the GLC 300 SUV, the GLC 300 4MATIC® SUV, and the GLC 350e 4MATIC® SUV. Each option offers a different level of power under the hood, giving you a sporty driving experience. For maximum savings at the pump and minimal environmental impact, the GLC 350e option provides drivers with a 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine plus a plug-in hybrid electric motor.
