See How the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Performs in the Moose Test

Posted on

The fast change of direction on a test moose is often challenging for crossovers due to their higher center of gravity. The 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC 220d 4Matic takes up the challenge in this video, and really manages to get through the cones.

The GLC 220d 4Matic is the most powerful model in the lineup producing 194 horsepower (145 kilowatts). This one has the optional AMG Package which includes a more aggressive suspension setup. It rides on 20-inch wheels instead of the standard 18-inch cut. The tires are Continental EcoContact 6 which focuses on low rolling resistance to improve fuel economy.

KM77 generally conducts its first moose test on a vehicle at an entry speed of 48 miles per hour (77 kilometers per hour). This time, however, the driver started off at 46.6 mph (75 kph). GLC failed the evaluation by hitting cones in the second half.

In its best effort, the GLC passed over the cone at 46.6 mph (75 kph). However, the testers were unable to achieve a second success at this speed.

KM77 described the GLC as not very agile but had predictable handling. This allows the driver to control the vehicle without overworking it.

In slalom, the suspension controls body roll, but the steering doesn’t provide much feedback. The GLC completed the test in 24.8 seconds. This time it is identical to the 2022 BMW iX xDrive40. Fastest time in this test from KM77 is 22.8 seconds for the 2022 Polestar 2 long range dual motor performance package.

Mercedes-Benz is currently working on the GLC Coupe, and we expect it to debut before the end of the year. This variant will have a revised roofline and tail to give the crossover a sleeker appearance. Mechanically, the two vehicles are identical.

At the very top, there will be the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 Coupe. We hope to share the powertrain with the new C 63. The setup will include a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with an electrically assisted turbo and rear-mounted electric motor making a total of 671 horsepower (500 kilowatts) and 752 pounds. -feet (1,020 Newton-meters) of torque in the C-Class. A hot GLC can have identical output.
