The 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe has finally been revealed to the world. Ever so slightly larger than its predecessor โ€“ which curiously is still the version sold in Malaysia โ€“ this new model also comes with a standard hybrid powertrain across all variants in a bigger, techier package.

A restyled exterior featuring shaplier LED headlamps, a more defined hood, and tauter surfacing throughout the swoopy body are among the key developments.

Can't leave out the new-look LED tail lights too, which look brilliant. Plus the tailgate has a sharper upturn too, for added downforce (at 0.27 cd it's technically as aerodynamic as the Prius), which Mercedes says will help with tuning out more wind noise.

Interior appointments mirror those of the GLC SUV, so with the heavily-restyled dashboard comes a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, and the new 11.9-inch portrait-style infotainment touchscreen running the latest MBUX software.
