How the Current GLC-Class Came to Be
The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is still very new, having only arrived for the 2016 model year. That being said, the GLC-Class is strongly based on the GLK-Class with the renaming due to a new naming scheme for Mercedes-Benz in the 2016 model year. The first GLK-Class model arrived in 2010 as a V6-powered compact SUV with an all-new design but clear influences from the larger G and GL-Classes.
For 2011, the GLK got extra airbags, an optional rearview camera, a new
leather steering wheel, and a new headlight switch, along with an available AMG
package. LED running lights were added to the headlights in 2013 while the
taillights also received LEDs. The 3.5-liter V6 was updated to reach 302
horsepower coupled with some updated styling. A diesel version, the GLK250
BlueTEC, was available in 2014 while the transition from the GLK to GLC-Class
took place for 2016.
