On a driving front, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC offers five different driving modes. These consist of the Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual settings all of which are featured on other Mercedes-Benz models. A unique feature of the GLC is the Off-Road Engineering package. It adds a further five driving programs like ‘Slippery’, ‘Offroad’ and ‘Trailer’. One of the most interesting is the ‘Rocking Assist’ program. If the GLC gets stuck while offroading, this driving function raises the car’s ride height by 50 mm while the wheel-slip control thresholds are increased to allow the GLC to work its way free.
U.S. pricing is expected to be released in the coming months.
