Spy video captures the prototype of the updated crossover Mercedes GLC

Auto publications have published a video showing a camouflaged prototype of the updated Mercedes GLC crossover. The official debut of the newest car will take place in a few months.

It’s been over a year since we first spotted the next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLC test prototype. The crossover was fully camouflaged with front and rear cladding and temporary lighting fixtures. In a new video, the crossover prototype is again captured and Mercedes continues to hide the design of the GLC – the car still wears the same camouflage covers it did 12 months ago. This means that there are still several months before the debut.

The new GLC will share the basics with the new C-class, which means these cars will be similar in design on the inside.

The GLC is expected to get a digital instrument cluster and infotainment screen located low on the dashboard. It should also be equipped with the latest Mercedes technology and safety features.

The updated platform will help increase the torsional rigidity of the crossover while reducing weight. The crossover looks a bit larger than the previous model, although we’ll need precise measurements to be sure of this as the wheelbase looks a bit longer, although this could be a camouflage and cladding gimmick. The exterior proportions of the GLC shouldn’t be much different from the current performance of the car, although it will have a new design for the front and rear panels.

The next-generation GLC is expected to get a slew of four-cylinder engines, even for the high-performance AMG variant. The new platform will allow the company to offer customers electrified powertrains, including plug-in hybrids. Given the amount of camouflage still covering the crossover, we don’t expect Mercedes to officially unveil the new GLC before the end of this year or early next. Once that happens, we may have to wait for the AMG variant to debut at a later date, along with the redesigned GLC Coupe.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote about how ferociously the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar roars.
