2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC Teaser Shows Off SUV’s More Rugged Face

Mercedes-Benz has released a teaser video of the facelifted 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC prior to the vehicle’s world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

The short video of the tweaked SUV has it wading along a river and beyond the first second, shows virtually nothing of the facelifted GLC. Fortunately, the first second does provide us with a glimpse of the vehicle’s new fascia.

The most obvious difference between the new GLC and the outgoing model are the different headlights, complete with revised LED daytime running lights. In addition, the facelifted Mercedes-Benz GLC adopts a new grille with two horizontal slats rather than the one found on the current GLC. The model featured also has a much more rugged-looking front bumper incorporating a number of bolder silver elements.

Mercedes-Benz won’t mess with the overall shape of the GLC but further tweaks are expected to be found at the rear, including alterations to the taillights which will see the reverse lights positioned under the brake lights.

The inside job for 2020MY

In the cabin, the facelifted Mercedes-Benz GLC will be refreshed and will be outfitted with the automaker’s excellent MBUX infotainment system. Altered trims alongside other improvements such as a new wireless charging pad for cell phones will be part of the package too. Recent spy shots also revealed a newly designed steering wheel.

Mercedes hasn’t offered any information regarding the powertrains that will be offered with the new GLC. However, we have an inclination that some engines from the facelifted C-Class could find their way into the updated crossover. This could include a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 255 hp and 273 lb-ft (369 Nm) of torque.

Stay tuned for more details about the facelifted 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC as its unveiling inches closer.

A facelifted GLC Coupe is coming too

Similar changes are expected on the SUV’s sister model, the GLC Coupe, though, at this point, we don’t know if Mercedes will bring it to Geneva or if it will choose to keep it for another international motor show like in New York this April.
