The GLC will feature the second-generation of Mercedes’ MBUX infotainment system, first launched on the new S-Class. For the GLC – available with four-wheel-drive and rear-axle steering – the system will have an offiroad menu that includes a real view of the ground under the front end to help the driver detect obstacles.
Also included is an augmented reality view that superimposes house numbers and traffic lights on images from the front camera.
Standard screen size is 11.9 inches for the central display and 12.3 inches for the instrument panel, Mercedes says.
Mild-hybrid gasoline versions are based on a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an output up to 190 kilowatts and 295 foot-pounds of torque. Mercedes did not release emissions or horsepower figures. The plug-in hybrid system adds a 100-kw electric motor.
