Mercedes GLC Caught On The Road: Video
With the new Mercedes-Benz GLC set to break cover on June 17th, it’s no wonder the Germans are elbows deep into testing the crossover. The GLC keeps showing up around the company’s largest testing facility near Stuttgart. Last week we received a new batch of spy shots from our trusty paparazzi, but now it’s time to watch the new crossover in action thanks to a video released by YouTube user "walkoART".
The one-minute footage shows not one, but two GLCs trotting around the Sindelfinden facility with mild camouflage still covering their bodies. The good news is the thin layers of camo Mercedes decided to keep on the vehicles can no longer prevent us from having a closer look at the GLC’s rounded, yet muscular body lines. This wouldn’t be a big deal if its predecessor were been less boxy, but the GLC is a massive departure in terms of design.
Moreover, one of the prototypes shown in the video wears a metallic, dark-red paint job, a breath of fresh air compared to the black and gray GLC prototypes we’ve seen so far. If you’re a Mercedes fan or you’re simply eager to see more of the GLC, this video has you covered.
As a brief reminder, the GLC is actually the second-generation GLK. Mercedes changed the crossover’s designation to better highlight the connection between vehicles sharing the same platform. In this case, the "C" in the GLC comes from the C-Class, the sedan equivalent of the compact crossover.
