Coming up with a vehicle that can successfully blend an SUV with a coupé body style would defeat most car manufacturers, but not Mercedes-Benz. In fact, the premium German marque has produced the GLC Coupé, a classy automotive affair that delivers a comfortable ride and is surprisingly economical to run.
A swooping roofline provides the vehicle with its head-turning coupé silhouette. Entry-level Sport trims ride on 18-inch alloy wheels too, which are included as standard. A number of other eye-catching elements are featured, not least a chrome-and-matte-iridium-silver radiator grille, which adorns the car’s front fascia. The GLC Coupé is as practical as it is impressive to look at. For instance, it features a five-door body style, and a range of exterior lighting that includes high-performance LED headlamps.
The vehicle’s power-operated sliding sunroof ensures that the interior is bathed in plenty of natural light, conferring a bright and airy feel on the cabin. A sunblind is provided too, just in case the sun’s rays become too strong. The GLC Coupé’s ersatz-leather-upholstered cabin has a refreshingly uncluttered look and feel, and there’s room for two adults – or three younger travellers in its rear compartment. Despite the car’s classic coupé roofline, space in the back row is more than decent, and there’s certainly plenty of legroom. Front-row occupants, meanwhile, are treated to lots of head and legroom. The driver further benefits from a highly adjustable position, and tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel – so getting comfortable will never be an issue. With all seats in place, boot volume stands at 500 litres; with rear seats folded, this capacity expands to a very useful 1,600 litres.
Sport grades are typically installed with a 2.1-litre 170bhp diesel engine, which delivers 400Nm of torque and 0-60mph in a just over eight seconds. This four-cylinder unit also returns as much as 56.5mpg, and produces CO2 emissions as low as 131g/km, making it the most efficient option available for the GLC Coupé.
Keyless entry provides the driver with easy access to the car, while keyless start ensures that engine ignition relies on the simple push of a button. A high-definition seven-inch display screen allows intuitive control of the vehicle’s Garmin satellite navigation system and five-speaker Burmester sound system, among other things.
The GLC Coupé comes with a maximum five-star crash-test rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP. An extensive array of safety features is included, such as Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Stability Programme. In addition, Active Parking Assist automatically identifies spaces that the car will fit into. A rear-view camera features too, relaying high-quality real-time footage to the vehicle’s display screen, making it another essential parking aid.
