2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC Makes Its Spy Shot Debut

The next-gen luxury SUV has been spotted testing for the first time on German roads


  • The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC could debut in 2021.
  • Though it looks familiar, it features plenty of new design details.
  • Could come with a portrait-oriented infotainment system a la new S-Class.
  • GLC could feature a raft of petrol, diesel and hybrid engine options.

Our last brush with the Mercedes-Benz GLC was when the German carmaker launched the facelifted version and the GLC Coupe in the country. Now, Mercedes-Benz has started work on its successor, the 2022 GLC, which has been spotted testing on German roads ahead of its launch. 

At first glance, the 2022 GLC looks largely similar to the current model. A closer look reveals plenty of new design elements, giving it a breath of fresh air. For starters, the grille and LED headlamps are larger and feature revised design elements. We also noticed the new alloy wheels and the more pronounced haunch above the rear wheel arches. It also comes with a more butch rear bumper and could feature sleeker LED tail lamps. The upcoming GLC also could be slightly larger than the model it replaces.  


The 2022 GLC’s interior is yet to be seen. However, considering Mercedes’ latest design language, it could come with a portrait-oriented touchscreen central console a la the upcoming Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Have a closer look here

In terms of features, the 2022 GLC could retain most of the current model’s kit such as the latest iteration of the MBUX system, connected car technology, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a panoramic sunroof, Burmester sound system, digital dials and cruise control. On the safety front, it could come with nine airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, a 360-degree camera and lane keeping assist.  


The powertrain options for the facelifted GLC are yet to be revealed. One can expect a raft of petrol, diesel and even hybrid powertrain options. AMG enthusiasts could also expect the brute AMG GLC 63 with the mighty 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 unit. When launched in India, expect the GLC to continue with the same diesel and petrol powertrain options as the current model.  

The new-genGLC is expected to make its global debut in 2021 and could reach India by early 2022. When launched, expect it to be priced above the current model which starts from Rs 52.75 lakh (ex-showroom). The facelifted GLC will lock horns with the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and the Volvo XC60.
