The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe has been launched in the country becoming the 10th car for their Make-in-India portfolio. The car will be available in two variants – 300 d 4MATIC diesel priced at Rs 63.70 lakh and the 300 4MATIC petrol for Rs 62.70 lakh (ex-showroom).

The new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe models add to the Stuttgart major’s SUV range in the country making the German auto manufacturer the largest premium SUV portfolio with eight SUVs in India. Mercedes claim that there is an increasing demand for SUV coupés, which will be better catered to with local production. The new car will be equipped with Mercedes me connect that offers a number of features like remote lock/unlock, car locator, speed monitor, emergency e-call, and more. We will also see MBUX, which is Mercedes’s car virtual assistant and infotainment system.

As mentioned above, in the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe we see two BS-VI engines with the OM654 1,950-cc, in-line four-cylinder engine churning out 245 hp and 500 Nm of torque. The petrol version is a 1,991-cc in-line four-cylinder unit that makes 258 hp and 370 Nm of torque. Both variants are available with the 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission.

Speaking about the launch, Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “With the GLC Coupe, we are excited to add yet another stylish lifestyle and dynamic SUV in our portfolio and continue the unmatched product offering in the luxury SUV segment. The GLC Coupe now locally produced in its series version will further enhance the popularity of the SUV Coupe. The GLC Coupe is distinguished by its technological prowess thanks to the most intuitive and engaging MBUX which is capable of ‘Over the Air’ updates via Mercedes me connect services. The SUV features the intelligent virtual in-car assistant popularly known as ‘Hey Mercedes’ and comes with an NTG 6.0 with class-leading 24X7 connected features and services from Mercedes Me Connect.”

Piyush Arora, Executive Director, Operations, Mercedes-Benz India said, “Mercedes-Benz India’s manufacturing facility has remained the backbone of our growth story in India and we are extremely satisfied with our localization strategy, which is pivotal to our long-term success in this dynamic market. The adding of the 10th product reiterates the highest level of refinement and implementation of advanced technology and flexible processes that ensure our production quality conforms to the most stringent global standards, and we create a novel benchmark in manufacturing for the luxury car industry in India. Going forward we will strive to introduce more locally value-added vehicles depending on future market dynamics and growth.”
