"Like every new product from Mercedes-Benz, the GLC embodies our successful design philosophy of sensuous purity. Its styling focuses on the paradigm shift from angular forms towards a contemporary luxury. In particular the exterior design, with its sensuous surfaces in combination with clearly drawn feature lines and expressive proportions, shows that the GLC’s new stylistic direction radiates not just intelligence, but also emotionality”, explains Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG. Its dynamic design arouses emotions while at the same time playing with puristic forms. However, the GLC distances itself only visually from its forefather, the G-Class. Technically, it sets new standards on every front, with the off-road qualities of the mid-size SUV still pre-eminent.
