An Evolutionary Machine | Mercedes GLC 2023 | First Drive Review

A demand so high Mercedes had to put a stop to selling this car. A car which was exceptional in almost everything. A potential so strong it shook the market right away.


Effortless Powertrain, Comfort, Sophisticated design


Steering could be more precise


The car, in terms of its design and size, has improved and upgraded. The size has increased by 60 mm and 15 mm in the wheelbase, making the seating more roomier and more comfortable. Overall the car looks bigger due to its design as well. On the front, you will notice that the huge logo and chrome plating around it has remained the same from the outgoing GLC. You can see the radiator grill in all the new models of Mercedes. Coming to the headlamps are the LED high-performance lights connected to the radiator grill. There is chrome plating on the under guard skid plate on the front and rear. It carries the Mercedes look perfectly, making it a sporty and stylish design. 

Going to the side, the car has artistic-looking 5-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels adding to the car's character. 360-degree cameras on the side view mirrors and one under the logo giving the live feed. Going to the rear of the vehicle, the 3-D rear lights are a perfect touch to the simple and stylish look of the vehicle. The car also has dummy exhaust tips in chrome—slight changes from the previous GLC. Overall the exterior of the car has had a facelift, and Mercedes has done an extremely good job at it.
