Mercedes-Benz launched the much anticipated luxury SUV, the new GLC ‘Edition 1’ in New Delhi. The GLC is introduced as a CBU and will be available in both petrol and diesel variants.
The GLC is Mercedes-Benz’s key product that never had a predecessor in India, positioning itself between the GLA and GLE luxury SUVs. With the introduction of the GLC, Mercedes-Benz India continues its product offensive strategy and bolsters its versatile range of luxury SUVs.
“We are very excited to launch the GLC ‘Edition 1’, as it is one of the much anticipated products in the luxury segment in India,” said Roland Folger, managing director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India. “The GLC underscores our philosophy of introducing world-class products from our global portfolio for our discerning Indian customers. We have seen a growing penchant for luxury SUVs amongst the luxury car customers in India and the addition of the GLC is going to redefine the segment completely.”
According to Folger, the GLC gives customers a sporty, dynamic and completely new generation SUV to opt for. “We are confident that the GLC will cement Mercedes-Benz’s strong presence in the luxury SUV segment in India. The introduction of the GLC also fills the gap in our SUV portfolio, making Mercedes-Benz the luxury car manufacturer with the most extensive range of SUVs, ranging from the GLA to the iconic AMG G 63.”
The GLC 220 d ‘Edition 1’ is priced at Rs. 50.70 lakh, and the GLC 300 ‘Edition 1’ at Rs. 50.90 lakh (both prices ex-showroom Pune).
