2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 Sheds Boxy Style, Gains New Turbo Engine

Mercedes has introduced the second generation of its entry level compact crossover, giving it a new powertrain, new technologies, a new design and even a new name.

No longer called the GLK-Class, Mercedes is renaming its entire SUV/crossover lineup (except the G-Class). Dubbed the GLC-Class, the new name represents its position in the SUV lineup as equivalent to the C-Class in the sedan lineup.

The new name and look also comes with a new powertrain. No longer available with a V6 engine, the only motor available at launch in the US is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 241 hp at 5,500 rpm and 273 lb-ft of torque at 1,300-4,000 rpm. Thatís about 60 less ponies but the same torque as the V6-powered 2015 model year GLK. Standard as a rear-wheel drive model, the GLC 300 can also be equipped with 4Matic all-wheel drive. Regardless of the drive wheels, the crossover gets a nine-speed automatic transmission.

This new powertrain is expected to help improve fuel efficiency, although no official numbers have been shared at this time. Also helping to improve the fuel usage of the new vehicle is a slimmer curb-weight and improved aerodynamics. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC weighs 176 lbs less than the GLK 350 thanks to the usage of lightweight materials such as aluminium.
