Cheaper by RM 51k, CKD 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC (X254) launched in Malaysia 01

The locally-assembled (CKD, Pekan) 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC is now launched in Malaysia. Like the fully-imported (CBU) model, only one variant is offered – GLC 300 AMG Line, which is priced at RM 378,888 (OTR without insurance), making it RM 51k cheaper than the CBU model.

Specs wise, the CKD GLC 300 mostly mirrors the CBU version except for the addition of a panoramic sunroof and hands-free access for the tailgate.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1685525140735-0'); });

The GLC 300 is a mild-hybrid (MHEV) and is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre inline-4 petrol engine that makes 258 PS/400 Nm.

This is paired to a 48V motor-generator which adds 23 PS and 200 Nm. Power is sent to all 4 wheels via a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission.

Like the CBU model, Adaptive Digital Light LED headlights and 20-inch wheels come as standard.

Inside, there's an 11.9-inch portrait infotainment display and a 12.3-inch widescreen digital instrument cluster that runs on the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). Audio is provided by the Burmester 3D surround sound system with 15 speakers.

There’s also an offroad drive mode, and a camera feature that allows one to ‘see-through’ under the hood when tackling tough terrains.

Other features include dual-zone automatic climate control, Artico man-made leather upholstery on the seats and dashboard, powered front seats with memory function, wireless charger, and 64-colour ambient lighting. New to the CKD model are the panoramic sunroof and hand-free access for the tailgate as mentioned earlier.

  • Active Blind Spot Assist (BSM)
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
  • Active Brake Assist (AEB)
  • Active Parking Assist with Parktronic

No mention of adaptive cruise control, unfortunately.
