Suave, sophisticated yet sporty in performance roughly sums up the Mercedes Benz GLC Coupe, a premium streamlined SUV that has captured the attention of luxury SUV enthusiasts in India ever since its launch. With user rating ranging from 8.1 to 10 stars on an average, this is perhaps the coupe version that is meant to last. Besides the basic model,the year 2018 witnessed the launch of 2 newer versions in the GLC line that are, the AMG GLC 63 and the AMG GLC 63S each of which has displayed outstanding on-road performance lavish interiors and a near perfect blend of technical inputs that make the vehicle worth the money you spend on it.
