Engine, Drivetrain, and Fuel Economy
Taking a peek under the GLC 300 SUV’s hood, you’ll find a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine that generates 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Inherently powerful and fuel-efficient, the turbo engine further benefits from ECO-START®/Stop, which helps a sophisticated 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission to achieve up to an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway. Built to deliver significant horsepower and torque without requiring constant fuel top-ups, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is the picture of stylish sensibility.
Customizable Drive Modes
Quiet, fast, and easy on gas, the GLC 300 SUV’s standard 9-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles is engineered for greater gear range. What’s more, the transmission comes with DYNAMIC SELECT® – a multi-mode drive program that allows Alpharetta and Johns Creek drivers to adjust throttle response, shift points, and steering. DYNAMIC SELECT® includes four pre-set modes: ECO, Comfort, Sport, and Sport+. The fifth Individual mode lets drivers build a setting from scratch. For example, you can program the Individual mode to switch the transmission to manual-only shifting for increased control.
Travel and Tow in Safety
Every moment you spend behind the wheel, the GLC 300 SUV’s cutting-edge safety systems work to keep you out of harm’s way. As part of its extensive safety package, you’ll receive:
- 9-way airbag protection
- Rearview camera
- LED Daytime Running Lamps and taillamps
- Rain-sensing wipers
- Adaptive braking technology
- Anti-theft alarm with remote panic
The GLC SUVs also include COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS® and PRESAFE®, which work to prevent a collision and automatically prepare occupants for an imminent collision, respectively. Meanwhile, standard Trailer Stability Assist and Crosswind Assist aim to prevent safety issues often caused by trailer sway and strong side-blowing winds.
Feature-Packed Cargo Area
With its wide track width, long wheelbase, and accommodating door openings, the GLC 300 is anything but stingy with space. The luxurious yet minimalistic dash, accessible driver controls, and free-standing central screen add to its spacious, clean-cut feel. Toward the back, you’ll find 40/20/40-split rear seats with power folding, which can broaden your SUV’s cargo storage with the push of a button. With the rear seats folded, the GLC 300 offers a maximum of 56.5 cubic feet of cargo room. The cargo area itself includes a retractable luggage cover, as well as lockable sub-floor storage, 12-volt power port, bag and tie-down hooks, side cargo net, and pop-out brackets.
