Let your vehicle take care of changing gears: you will barely notice the gear changes made by the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. Nine gears enable low engine speeds, which reduces your fuel consumption and ensures a more pleasant noise level.
Using the DYNAMIC SELECT Switch, the driver is able to change the vehicle's damping properties. There is a choice between Comfort mode with more comfortable damping characteristics and two Sport modes for a sporty, taut damper set-up. The adjustment options provide a wide spread between comfortable, sporty and very sporty configurations. The driver has a choice between 3 stages, "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport+".
DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter the performance character of your GLC just by tapping a console switch. Driving modes from ECO to Sport to Comfort to Individual vary the throttle feel, shifting, suspension options and more to suit the conditions.
The optional multi-chamber air suspension system AIR BODY CONTROL works in unison with continuously variable damper control to ensure very high standards of road roar and tyre vibration characteristics and driving dynamics. The damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation and road surface condition. The occupants enjoy a soft basic suspension set-up and the secure feeling of high handling stability as speed increases. A harder spring rate, for example when cornering and braking, effectively reduces rolling movements. With the “Comfort” and “Sport” settings, AIR BODY CONTROL can be configured for a more comfortable or sportier drive.
Lightweight, efficient 4MATIC® adds all-wheel driving confidence on slippery roads and in dry corners. Continually sending torque to the wheels that can use it best, the GLC Coupé can further vary the torque from 0 to 100% front-to-rear.
In the GLC Coupé, the 9G-TRONIC is the world’s first 9-speed automatic transmission with a hydrodynamic torque converter in the premium segment that can be used with longitudinally mounted engines, and impresses with fast, virtually indiscernible gear changes and very high ride comfort.
The sports exhaust system features an even sportier character and reinforces the emotional sound experience. The acoustics can be tailored to suit personal taste in conjunction with the DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes via the integrated exhaust flap. Optionally the sound can be even sportier thanks to modified silencer system design. It adapts to the driving mode resulting in a more emotional and intense sound. And if a more subtle sound is desired, that is also possible. Your car, your sound.
