2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Exterior

What's New For the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC?

Mercedes-Benz decided to go big with its upgrades to its GLC-Class line of cars. First, you've got a new four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a decent increase in horsepower. For those of you with your eye on electric, you'll like that Mercedes-Benz gave its electric car, the GLC 350e plug-in, a significantly larger battery. Additionally, you'll enjoy the MBUX infotainment system (now standard in the GLC) that gives you unparalleled control over many of your GLC's functions.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Comes with an Amazing Array of Features

The GLC comes in a few different configurations, each with its variety of exciting features. The base GLC 300 is a 4X2 vehicle with a 2.0-liter I-4 under the hood. Inside, you'll enjoy the MBUX infotainment system (standard with all configurations), a power sunshade, 3-driver memory seat settings, and a panoramic sunroof. The next step up is identical to the GLC 300 except for the addition of 4MATIC all-wheel drive capabilities. Both the GLC 350e plug-in and the AMG GLC 43 have similar features to the GLC 300, but the AMG GLC 63 boasts a turbocharged V6. The AMG GLC 63 has even more goodies. It's got a 4.0-liter V8, an upgraded braking system, and variable torque distribution. No matter which configuration you choose, you can always add options or packages to your purchase, such as leather upholstery and self-parking.

2020 GLC Powertrain and Its Performance

2020 GLCs house a few different high-powered engines. The first is a 2.0-liter turbocharged motor with four cylinders. It puts out an impressive 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Then you've got the GLC 350e, which is a plug-in hybrid. This model adds an electric motor to the mix for a total output of 315 horsepower. Up from there is the 3.0-liter V6, which is available with the AMG GLC 43. It's rated at 385 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque.

It's an impressive engine but is nowhere near as powerful as what's under the hood of the AMG GLC 63. That's got a 4.0-liter V8 that produces an unmatched 469 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. The 4-cylinders and the 350e all share the same 9-speed transmission, while the V6 and the V8 have performance-enhanced transmissions.

Technologies to Keep You Safe

The GLC has its share of attractive safety features, such as Parktronic with active parking assist. This feature allows the car to almost park itself. There's also a pedestrian monitoring system that warns you if you're close to a collision. You'll also get quality standard equipment such as anti-lock brakes, overhead (along with side- and front-impact) airbags, and seatbelt pretensioners.

As far as optional safety equipment, you can choose automatic emergency braking and blindspot assist, to name a few of them. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the GLC a Superior rating for both its optional and standard front crash prevention systems. On top of that, the GLC earned good scores across the board in a half-dozen IIHS tests that mirror the most common crashes on the road.
