The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is set to debut in a couple of days, but after a look at these new spy photos there won’t be much left to reveal.
AutoGuide.com’s spy photographers have caught the production GLC testing just ahead of its unveiling, revealing the German automaker’s next luxury crossover. Replacing the current GLK-Class, the GLC will get rid of the outgoing model’s sharp and boxy lines for something more curvy and fluid, much like all its new-generation models.
It will also follow Mercedes-Benz’s new nomenclature where its crossover and SUV models will be similar to its traditional models, that being the entry-level C-Class, the midsize E-Class and the range topping S-Class. As a result, expect a GLC, GLE and GLS to eventually round out the company’s lineup.
With the GLC replacing the GLK, the GLE has already debuted as the replacement for the ML-Class. The eventual GLS will take the place of the current GL as the flagship SUV offering from Mercedes.
As for what to expect with the Mercedes-Benz GLC, powertrain will carry over from the existing C-Class which includes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 241 hp and 229 lb-ft of torque and a more powerful 3.0-liter V6 with 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque.
