Then around back, there have been some more changes chiefly among them are the full LED taillights with a more pointed design like in the GLA down at the bottom all models have dual exhaust outlets.
However, the tips are fake this year, but overall, Mercedes has done an excellent job with this refresh.

2020 Mercedes GLC 300 Specs

It’s A 14 horsepower over last year and is now shared with the GLE 350. So that is now right in line with the competition as far as powers concerned now, there will be a GL c 43 AMG version that’s not available right at this moment.
But as far as that, I will go ahead and mention that briefly that is a 3-liter twin-turbo V6 385 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, and that is also we bump with 23 HP over 2019. Charge your transmission you’ll have a 9-speed automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive or 4matic all-wheel drive as we have equipped in this one. Then as far as your fuel economy, you’ll be rated at 22 cities, 29 highway, 24 combined with rear-wheel drive.
Then when you go for the 4matic all-wheel-drive system, it drops your city and highway numbers by one. However, the combined number does stay the same by the EPA’s calculations. Healthy zero to sixty names there Around six seconds, maybe a little less than six seconds. The same as the four-cylinder competition.
You know, and that definitely for this type of vehicle feel is plenty adequate. Now we do also have a Mercedes auto start/stop system.
