Facelifted 2019 Mercedes GLC Coupe prices confirmed

Mid-life facelift for Mercedes GLC Coupe SUV brings slightly tweaked styling, new engines and Mercedes’s latest infotainment system

Prices for the revised Mercedes GLC Coupe have been confirmed. The updated lineup for the BMW X4 rival starts from £44,045 for a GLC 220 d AMG Line, with order books open now.

From launch, there's two engines and four variants of the AMG Line trim level to choose from. The 220 d, powered by a 189bhp 2.0-litre diesel, is also available in AMG Line Premium trim, which costs £47,505.

The GLC 300 d uses a more powerful version of the same unit that makes 238bhp and 500nm of torque. This costs from £49,290 in AMG Line Premium trim, climbing to £57,670 in AMG Line Premium Plus Ultimate spec. Like-for-like, the GLC Coupe costs £1,875 more than the equivalent conventional GLC.

At a glance, its exterior looks almost identical to the model it replaces. However, Mercedes has given the GLC Coupe a subtle range of styling updates such as a new front bumper, a new grille, a redesigned diffuser and a fresh pair of exhaust tips.

Mercedes’ revisions to the GLC Coupe’s interior are much more involved, with a redesigned dashboard, a reworked centre console, an air-vent design borrowed from the new A-Class, a tweaked multifunction steering wheel and the firm’s latest MBUX infotainment system.

The new MBUX multimedia unit replaces the previous GLC’s ageing ‘Command’ set-up. It consists of a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch centre-mounted display and a multifunctional touchpad mounted on the transmission tunnel. Voice and gesture control also feature.

At a later date, the GLC 300 will join the range with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder from the new Mercedes C-Class, producing 254bhp and 370Nm of torque. It’s also fitted with a 48-volt belt-driven starter-generator. A plug-in hybrid will also feature. All models will be fitted as standard with Mercedes’ 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system.

The GLC Coupe’s facelift is completed with a suite of new driver-assistance technology, a revised version of Mercedes’ ‘Dynamic Body Control’ adjustable dampers, optional air suspension and the optional ‘Energising Comfort Control’ package, which automatically tailors the GLC’s interior lighting, climate control and seat massagers to the driver’s mood.

Prices for the new GLC Coupe are yet to be announced. However, the current model starts from around £42,000, and we’re expecting a similar entry-point for the updated version.
