Go ahead, touch the materials, stitching and flowing shapes. Feel the precision in its controls and aircraft-style vents. Venture through wide rear doors to the 40/20/40-split rear seats. Even your luggage rides in luxury, with an available hands-free tailgate.

Always in good shape: Two styling packages.

A muscular shape is just the start of a GLC. The Sport Package pumps up its style with 19-inch AMG wheels, chiseled bodywork and a sporty chassis. The Night Package cloaks all that in gloss black accents. And both offer 20-inch wheel upgrades.

Fashion that functions: The richly equipped cabin.

A hybrid with an edge. And a plug for your future.

The GLC 350e 4MATIC is the only plug-in hybrid that's also a GLC. So it not only outperforms, it also out-innovates: Radar helps it recoup energy as you brake. GPS map data can better its highway efficiency and in-town range, even when you're not navigating. Its gas pedal can even help you drive smarter, sometimes using no gas at all.
