Next-gen Mercedes-Benz GLC spied testing ahead of unveil

The next-gen Mercedes-Benz GLC is expected to debut in 2022 or 2023.

Mercedes-Benz is working on the next-generation iteration of the GLC SUV.

Ahead of its unveil, the new-gen GLC has been spotted testing and can be seen covered heavily in camouflage, revealing very few details. The spy pics showcase the new model featuring a slightly stretched out bonnet, lowered roofline and more pronounced rear haunches. The upcoming model is also said to have slightly larger proportions, compared to the current model, translating to better cabin space.

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLC is also reported to come underpinned by an updated version of the brand's Modular High Architecture (MHA) platform. The updated version is reported to make use of more aluminium, which should help in bringing down the overall weight of the SUV.

Mercedes-Benz is yet to announce the powertrain options for the next-generation GLC. However, reports suggest that the base variants could continue to be powered by the brand's 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. Higher variants though, could feature some form of electrification / hybridisation. Reports also suggest, Mercedes-Benz will be replacing the engine on its range-topping AMG GLC 63 SUV, with a 4-cylinder unit.

With the current-generation GLC having received a mid-cycle update in 2020, expect the new-gen version to debut only sometime in late-2022 or early 2023.
