When did driving become less of an adventure and more of a chore? Most of us start out thinking of getting behind the wheel as an expression of freedom, and every time we turn on the ignition there’s a new journey ahead of us. Perhaps we get too used to it, or maybe it’s that too many people stay with the same segment they’ve been driving since the DMV first gave them a passing grade. If you think it’s time to switch things up and regain your enthusiasm, then the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV, available outside of Miami FL here at Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay, may be the right choice for you.
Here’s some good news for those who have been eyeing up this model, but weren’t quite ready to take the plunge: the AMG® GLC 63 variant has been added to the lineup. This new high-performance variant offers the handcrafted AMG® 4.0L V8 biturbo engine, with 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.
|Standard 241-hp 2.0-liter trubo 4-cylinder engine||Dual-zone automatic climate control||Anodized low-profile roof rails|
|ECO-START®/stop system||14-way power driver seat with memory||18-inch 5-spoke wheels|
|9G-TRONIC® automatic transmission w/shift paddles||FrontBass® System||Natural Grain Brown Ash wood trim|
|Dynamic Select® drive program selector||7-inch color display console||Rear privacy glass|
If you don’t choose carefully, picking the wrong SUV can feel a lot like choosing any other practical, family-friendly car. You deserve to find a model that truly feels like home, or better than home, when you sit behind the wheel. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV offers everything practical you’d find in other midsize options, like 17.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, but it’s a lot more fun to drive.
How fast can your current model go? The GLC has a manufacturer-tested 0-60 acceleration time of just 6.3 seconds, and that’s just in the base model. Some of our favorite features include the ECO-START®/stop system that automatically turns the engine off when you’re stopped, and then restarts when you accelerate, saving on fuel. We also love Dynamic Select®, as it allows you to choose between ECO, Comfort, Sport and Sport+, to create a driving experience that’s right for you.
It’s difficult to describe what luxury feels like, but you’ll know it when you take a test drive. Stop by Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay to get behind the wheel of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV.
