Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé (C253), 2019
The updated Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe won’t be in Australia for quite a while, probably well into the second half of 2019.

But it’s already exciting the Merc enthusiasts. Not only does it look good it also will be powered by a new engine line-up and introduces clever driving assistance systems. Changes to the external appearance are relatively minor, but do give the GLC an even sleeker look.

A larger touchscreen displays with 12.3 inches in the instrument cluster. There are 7.0 inches with 960 x 540 pixels and 10.25 inches with 1920 x 720 pixels in the central display.

The latest generation of the MBUX Mercedes-Benz User Experience multimedia system uses intuitive logic and offers you a choice of ways to interact with the GLC’s system: multifunction touchpad on the centre console; optional gesture control with the Interior Assistant; and by voice control, using the “Hey Mercedes” prompt.
