The 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe is now available for sale in the US! My AMG trainer brought one by the dealership today so that we could see it before the first one arrives!
The GLE coupe has been out for about 2 years now and has been a huge success. My clients have loved having the functionality of an SUV in a less traditional wrapper. The GLC grows this segment with a smaller footprint. This would be a great vehicle for small parking situations! It has all of the presence of the larger vehicle without the size!
I was only able to drive it across the parking lot but it was excellent! It has better visibility than you normally see in coupes and the seating position is high without being tippy. This particular vehicle had the standard dinamica interior and it felt very sporty. With the Dynamic Select set to Sport+ it has all of the growl of the bigger AMG vehicles!
Since this is an SUV we should talk about the storage. It has a large cargo area with a very large opening. It isn’t as tall as a traditional SUV in the back but it makes up for it with a very flat floor. The GLC43 is also standard with Air Suspension which allows the car to squat in the back for easier loading. This is an option in the GLC300. If you watch the video you’ll be able to see the cargo tray, scratch protector and cargo box in use. This makes for incredibly organized cargo! Nothing slid around at all!
This is the only Mercedes-Benz SUV that is currently built in Germany! The GLC is built in Bremen and is available for European Delivery. This would be an excellent time of year to plan your vacation!
We should be getting our first 2017 GLC43 coupe for inventory very soon. Please get in touch if you would like to schedule a test drive!
The Mercedes-Benz GLC is getting tons of good press because it is a great car! My clients are loving the luxurious ride, the plush interior and the excellent power. The down side of all this love is that supplies are small! I don’t have a large inventory and some desirable features are hard to get.
If you are thinking about a GLC you should order ASAP! I recommend you visit your trusted sales professional (hopefully me!) to review the available features and get your order in the system. It will likely take 90 to 120 days to arrive and you are going to want a new car this spring!
If you want to get really fancy you can order it for European Delivery and pick it up in Sindelfingen or Bremen, Germany! I can help!
Take a look at this beauty arriving yesterday! This client wanted leather (hard to get), trailer hitch (almost impossible) and Burl Walnut Wood (Not in November or December). It took almost 5 months to get it done right but we did it and they love the result!
Mercedes-Benz had introduced several new models and variations of models in the last few months. I though tit would be useful to see them side-by-side! Here is the GLC family and the big brother, GLE.
And a video!
Two new 2017 models have just arrived! The C63 AMG S-model coupe and the GLC300 coupe! It is a very stylish day!
Motor Trend has just named the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC as the SUV of the Year! It has been selling like hotcakes and I am sure that this announcement will boost it even more!
“Before we get to the “why” of the award, let’s get to the “what” of the SUV. The GLC replaces the old GLK, the little-loved, squared-off, schnauzer-faced mini-ute that will forever be known as the most believable character in Sex and the City 2.”
“The GLC is a smaller vehicle that feels every bit as well-honed as an E-Class, if not an S-Class.”
“How does the GLC compete against the other strong-selling German SUVs, the Audi Q5 and BMW X3? Solid players for sure, but we can tell from experience that the GLC does it all better. That also applies to the smaller-volume players in the segment, the Jaguar F-Pace, Maserati Levante, Porsche Macan, Acura RDX, Infiniti QX50, and Volvo XC60. All are nice premium SUVs—some even do a good job mimicking sports cars—but none is as well-rounded as the Mercedes-Benz GLC. Although not an official criteria, being the best in a given segment greatly helps secure first-place votes.”
Motor Trend took these mid-size SUVs for a drive through wine country and guess who won?!
“The execution is also top-notch. Every material in the GLC300 feels authentic. Wood is wood, metal is metal, and even the faux leather feels more convincing than the Lincoln’s true leather. Every button, dial, and switch is designed and built to a standard rather than to a price. Mercedes-Benz has set the benchmark with the GLC300’s interior design and execution.”
“Although Mercedes’ COMAND might not be cutting-edge in terms of technology and/or screen size, at least there are multiple/redundant ways in, and it’s easy to navigate through its features using both hard buttons on the center stack and the knob/touchpad controller. Its graphics are not only sophisticated but also useful for intuitively accessing everything from vehicle preferences to manually tuning radio stations. No gimmicks, no frustrations, no “it’s just the way you have to do it.” Rather, it just worked on a level above the others.”
“The GLC is larger and improved in every measure compared to the GLK, and its handsome exterior, impeccable interior, and class-leading dynamics and efficiency only serve to underscore the value it also contains. Who would’ve guessed that a Mercedes-Benz would emerge as the least expensive, least powerful, lightest, most sophisticated, most engaging to drive, most fuel-efficient, most attractive, and thus most desirable player in this group? The GLC300 takes the gold medal. Keep your eye on this one for next year’s SUV of the Year.”
Thanks Lloyd for pointing this article out to me! Glad your GLC won!
It’s been a quiet day at the dealership so I took myself for a test drive in the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC300! Perhaps next time you’ll give me a call and set up a test drive for yourself!

I have had a bunch of orders arrive this month and they looked great! Without exception the new owners are thrilled to have a vehicle that is exactly what they wanted and unique in the marketplace. The customers waited between 60 days to 8 months for these masterpieces!
2016 GLC300 – Black with Espresso Brown Leather
2017 GLS550 – Palladium with designo Espresso Brown Leather
2016 AMG GTS – Mars Red with Black Dinamica and Red Accents
Don’t settle for something you don’t love! If you have a strong vision for your new car I can make it happen
The first GLCs have arrived! The first shipment is mostly pre-sold but we should have another truck full arriving soon! It looks great! Come by soon for a test drive.
The all-new GLC300 is scheduled to arrive in December! One dropped by today and someone happened to park a GLK next to it! I thought it was the perfect opportunity to so a side-by-side comparison.
The new GLC is the direct replacement for the outgoing GLK. The new nomenclature tells you it is the SUV aligned with the C-Class sedan. It is larger, plusher and less boxy than the GLK.
