Overview

A bestseller for Mercedes since its launch in 2016. 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. 13,000+ Customers in India talk about themselves. 

The outgoing GLC checked off all points, making it a car everyone wanted. And now the All New Facelifted 2023 GLC is #ReadyForIt to continue the legacy of the previous GLC. In my eyes, Mercedes has always been about reliability, exceptional drive quality and safety with exceptional performance. At first sight, one can notice certain upgrades to the car in terms of design and size. Add modernised technology and a luxurious interior with a minimalistic touch to it. And a few more very cool and engaging features that you wouldn't expect in a preferably mid-size SUV meant for families. But Mercedes has done a very challenging job of upgrading a car that was already a best seller and had everything it needed. The car has evolved and undoubtedly has the potential to set high standards again. Let's find out just how high it is setting the mark.

VERDICT

Mercedes took up the challenge and excelled, giving the best seller car in their portfolio a facelift and upgrades. They certainly did not fail at either, with 13,000+ customers already loving the Previous GLC. After driving the 2023 GLC, I'm certain this car will already sell like hotcakes because of its performance and comfortable drive, luxurious interiors, stylish exteriors and modernised technology. It might have a few tiny disadvantages, but nothing huge enough compared to its competitors. Get ready for the Mercedes GLC 2023 to set your standards high and shake the market!
