Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe on sale in Australia from $77,100

Prices for the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe SUV have been announced for the Australian market. This is the second coupe-style SUV in this vehicle category, and the second for Mercedes.

Following in the footsteps set by the BMW X6 and the smaller X4, the GLC Coupe has its sights squarely focused on the latter. It’s based on the GLC, which is Mercedes’s mid-size, C-Class-derived SUV.

Mercedes Australia is offering local customers three different variants to choose from, spanning from the 220 d, 250, and 250 d. All come with turbocharged engines, and all offer a cargo capacity ranging from 500 litres to 1400 litres. This matches the BMW X4’s capacity exactly (500L/1400L).

The entry level GLC 220 d is powered by a turbo-diesel four-cylinder producing 125kW and 400Nm. It matched to a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system with a 9G nine-speed automatic, as with all three variants here.

Stepping up to the GLC 250 d gets you a more potent diesel engine generating 150kW and 500Nm, while the GLC 250 uses a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol producing 155kW and 350Nm.

All three variants come extensively packaged, with AMG Line trimmings, 20-inch AMG wheels, Dynamic Body Control sports suspension, an electric tailgate, Garmin sat-nav, a 360-degree camera, and Black-Ash open pore wood interior accents.

The GLC Coupe will officially go on sale in Australia in November. Starting prices are as follows (excluding on-roads):

Mercedes-Benz GLC 220 d Coupe – $77,100
Mercedes-Benz GLC 250 Coupe – $80,100
Mercedes-Benz GLC 250 d Coupe – $82,100
