2019 Mercedes GLC L SUV Redesign, Release Date, Price, & Spy Shots – The Audi Q5 L will likely be going through a tough competition from the new Mercedes-Benz GLC L. It’s a long-wheelbase variant of the preferred German premium SUV which will be offered exclusively in China and is now legally out.
The technical engineers have stretched the wheelbase of the vehicle by 100 millimeters (3.93 inches) providing passengers at the back a bit a lot more lower-leg space. The overall length of the car now is 4.76 meters (187.6 inches), when the width appears at 1.89 meters (74.7 inches). The curb bodyweight of the standard GLC is about 3,950 pounds (1,790 kgs), so probably the elongated version is a bit weightier.
Just like all other long-wheelbase versions on the Chinese market, aesthetically the GLC L is definitely similar to the regular model. The only noticeable distinctions are a bit longer rear doors, which a bit have an effect on the overall proportions of the SUV. Under the hood, everything is standard. In China, the GLC is powered by three 2.0-liter turbo gas engines, the GLC 200 L 4Matic, GLC 250 L 4Matic, and GLC 300 L 4Matic, creating 184 horsepower (137 kilowatts), 211 hp (157 kW), and 245 hp (183 kW) correspondingly. Power is channeled to all four wheels as the standard by means of a nine-speed automatic gearbox.
The German automaker will offer the GLC L for roughly $1,450 more than the regular model. The long-wheelbase SUV will be produced by the Beijing-Benz Motor Company (BBAC), a joint venture among Mercedes-Benz owner Daimler and nearby company BAIC. The GLC and GLC L will likely be made on the same assembly line. The new SUV is expected to make its open public debut at the Guangzhou International Automobile Event next calendar month.
