Why you would want the new Mercedes GLC Coupé? A reason

In this day and age, where efficiency is becoming increasingly important, coupé SUVs have actually been given a reason to exist. What to do with a less attractive, less practical high water car? Well, the Mercedes GLC Coupé has more range than the GLC.

We then have an electric range, because the second-generation Mercedes GLC Coupé is also available as a plug-in hybrid. And its streamlined coupe body ensures more range.

Mercedes GLC Coupé with large electric radius

The GLC Coupé can travel a maximum of 131 kilometers on the electric motor alone. This is partly due to its more favorable cW value of 0.27. The normal GLC reaches 0.29 and is out of power after about 120 kilometers.

Anyway, those extra 11 kilometers of range do have a downside: the questionable appearance of the GLC Coupé and a slightly less practical usability.

New Mercedes-Benz GLC is always a hybrid

Less luggage space in the coupé version of the GLC

For example, you have to make a compromise in terms of luggage space. In the regular GLC, 620 liters fit in the trunk; 460 if you order the plug-in hybrid. The GLC Coupé eats quite a bit of that, with 545 and 390 liters respectively.

Of course you can always fold the rear seats for more space: 1490 liters. In the plug-in hybrids, the location of the battery ensures that you hand in more than 150 liters and 1335 liters remain.

This is why the new Mercedes E-Class is sooooo 2009
