Mercedes-Benz GLC 200 Joins Local SUV Lineup
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has expanded its lineup with the launch of a new GLC variant – the GLC 200. This follows the successful introduction of its SUV range last year, which includes the locally-assembled GLC 250 4Matic.
The GLC 200 is equipped with the Off-Road Exterior design which underscores the vehicle’s SUV characteristics with rugged design features in chrome. The radiator trim boasts an integral Mercedes star and two louvres in matt iridium silver with chrome inserts.
Other highlights include the 19-inch 5-spoke light-alloy wheels, the chrome-plated simulated underguard and the exhaust system with two visible, chrome-plated tailpipe trims and the anodized roof rails. In addition to the striking look, the LED High Performance headlamps and LED tail lights provide more safety at night thanks to a broad light distribution.
Its interior features Exclusive line, including upholstery in Artico man-made leather/fabric, Artico-covered dashboard with contrasting topstitching in three colours, seats featuring an exclusive upholstery layout, wood trim in high-gloss brown line structure lime and the 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel.
The GLC 200 is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, which produces 184 hp and 300 Nm of torque. The nine-stage 9G-Tronic automatic transmission also comes as standard on the model. Depending on the mode selected for the Dynamic Select dynamic handling control, the automatic transmission with a torque converter boasts great agility and responsiveness.
