Mercedes has confirmed that it will unveil its new GLC crossover on June 17, releasing this preview sketch and a few details to give us an idea of what to expect.
Set to replace the outgoing GLK, the GLC will slot in between the GLA and GLE (née M-Class) in the Silver Star automaker’s growing sport-ute lineup. Its nameplate shifts to better align with the C-Class sedan and the SLC roadster that’s set to replace the SLK. The crossover’s design was previewed in slant-back form as the Concept GLC Coupe in Shanghai a couple of months ago, but as you can see from this sketch, it’ll initially come with a more conventional roofline.
In announcing the livestream of its reveal, Daimler revealed that the GLC will feature a multi-chamber air suspension, Dynamic Select transmission control, and 4Matic all-wheel drive. It also promises to consume 19 percent less fuel than the GLK it replaces.
