The side view showcases the almost coupé-like greenhouse, which together with the 118 millimetre larger wheelbase lends the GLC a long, elegant profile. This impression is further reinforced by the gently sloping dropping line which is a hallmark of the brand and by the powerful shoulders. The rising lower feature line also enlivens the vehicle’s side view. Matt black cladding in the wings, wheels up to a size of 20 inches and the optional side running board provide clear indications of the GLC’s off-road credentials. The rear is characterised by the broad, muscular shoulders, the horizontal orientation of the contour lines and the split LED rear lamps featuring a distinctive night design.
