New Mercedes GLC teased ahead of tonight's reveal

The wait is over for Mercedes‘ answer to the BMW X3 and Audi Q5. The new GLC will have the covers taken off it tonight, but a new teaser video show’s what we can expect from the new model. Our snappers have also seen the midsize SUV out testing with only minimal diguise, and we’ve had a gruelling off-road passenger ride in the car.

Although Merc has offered a car in the class for a few years now – the GLK – The UK never received it due to the engineering complexities of converting the SUV to right-hand drive. An all-new modular platform now solved the issue with the GLC, which will go on sale very soon for deliveries in November. There will also be a swoopier GLC Coupe to challenge the BMW X4, expected next year.

Based on the recently introduced C-Class, the GLC will adopt the more curvaceous styling from the saloon. The current GLK employs a rather boxier stance, with squared off panels and sharp edges, but this gets a softer design approach. Inside, the GLC is pure C-Class, with the free-flowing centre console and liberal use of plush gloss black materials.
