USA - Today, the Mercedes-Benz GLC won Motor Trend's 2017 SUV of the Year Award.

"The GLK, our original midsize SUV, was one of the most popular models in our SUV lineup. The GLC, our second-generation midsize SUV, has built on the sales success of the GLK while taking a huge leap forward in terms of safety, technology and design," said Bernie Glaser, General Manager of Product Management, MBUSA. 

"Winning Motor Trend's SUV of the Year award is a testament to all the hard work that designers, engineers and product management have put into the new GLC; congrats to the whole Mercedes-Benz team."
On a technical level, the Mercedes GLC sets new benchmarks for ride, handling, safety technology and comfort and offers off-road capabilities. 
Though larger than the GLK, the GLC is also lighter. A turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is teamed with a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission improved performance and efficiency. 
The GLC offers 4MATIC all-wheel drive for outstanding agility and traction on a variety of road surfaces.
The GLC's longer wheelbase and vehicle length result in substantially more interior space for occupants and luggage. The GLC's dashboard and center console showcase flowing lines and a large, one-piece panel that elegantly sweeps from the center air vents to the armrest. 
These clear-cut lines create a feeling of open space and establish a purist, modern vibe. The optional large panoramic glass roof further enhances the light and airy feel inside.
