Mercedes-Benz India launched the svelte looking GLC SUV in India. The GLC is their latest middle weight luxury SUV that sits right in between the smaller GLA and the more plush GLE.

The GL-prefix now accompanies Merc’s entire range of SUVs in India starting from the GLA and going up to the G63 AMG.

The GLC, priced at Rs 50.7 lakh (Ex-showroom, Pune), is currently available as a CBU (Completely Built Unit) which means prices should come down a bit once local production begins. The car gets two engine options – a 2.0 litre petrol which puts out 245 bhp of power and a 2.1 litre diesel putting out 170 bhp along with 40 kgm of torque.

The GLC also gets five normal driving modes and three exclusive off-road driving modes. It’s also got Merc’s trademark 4-Matic all-wheel drive system along with a 9-speed gearbox.
