The updated Mercedes-Benz GLC just made its Malaysian debut together with its sexier GLC Coupe sibling.

Similar to the updated C-Class range, the updated GLC range sees the discontinuation of the GLC 250 variant.

With the GLC 250 no more, the next step up from the GLC 200 is the GLC 300 (estimated RM 350,000).

Prices have also gone up, as the GLC 200’s price have increased from RM 293,888 to RM 299,888.

Up front, the new GLC is fitted with new headlights surrounding a new front grille that is more angular than before.

The side air slats that was previously residing at each edge of the front bumper are now integrated with the lower air intake.

Towards the rear, the tail lights get new quad LED lighting effect. The bottom half of the rear bumper also gets a more prominent rear diffuser and new exhaust tips.

Moving inside, the biggest change is the inclusion of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system, hooked up to a 10.25-inch touchscreen display.

 

Mercedes-Benz has also replaced the traditional analogue instrument cluster with a sleeker 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz has also swapped out the old rotary control dial, replaced with a new touch pad.

The steering wheel of the older GLC has also been thrown out, replaced with a sleeker, newer unit.

 

Power is derived from a new M264 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with varying output figures.
