Mercedes-Benz updates the GLK with a new name and athletic new styling and performance upgrades for 2016.

As Mercedes-Benz continues to streamline its growing model lines, drivers should take note that some of their favorite models will be changing names as they update design and performance features. Models such as the ML and GLK will be shedding their old titles for new ones. The ML will be the GLE, and the GLK will be known as the GLC. But don’t worry, these popular models are not being replaced, simply upgraded.

The versatile GLK has been a popular choice for drivers looking for a smaller sporty SUV option that provides a luxury ride and exceptional handing and control. For 2016, the GLK will assume its new identity as the GLC and will feature an array of exciting new updates as it takes a big leap forward with new technology and engineering designs.


Safety and Handling Features of the GLC

Mercedes-Benz has a strong reputation for implementing class-leading safety design and the GLC is no exception. Featuring state-of-the-art driver assistance programs, it offers more preventative measures than ever before. For instance, the GLC will come equipped with AIR BODY CONTROL: a multi-chamber air suspension that delivers a smoother ride. Combined with the DYNAMIC SELECT engine and suspension mode options, drivers can choose what kind of driving mode best fits their needs choosing between comfort, sport, and eco modes. This gives drivers the ultimate control over the agility and comfort of the drive no matter what kind of driving surface they encounter.

Exceptional Design

The GLC reflects the commitment Mercedes-Benz has made to creating a more sophisticated line of SUVS that portray athleticism, sensuality, and luxury design. The eye-catching design is sporty and will make a strong impression on the road. Classically rugged yet pure in form, the GLC was designed to stand apart from the original G-Class in outer design, while continuing its legacy of excellent performance and safety on a technical level.

The cabin will continue to feature exquisitely crafted materials including wood inlays and a smooth dash that features all the information necessary within the touch of a button. Comfortable seating and ergonomically designed controls make for a pleasant journey no matter how far.
