Earlier today, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia revealed its new range of SUVs here in the country. We’ve brought you live coverage of the new GLC, GLE and GLE Coupe models from their launch event at the Kuala Lumpur Performance Arts Centre, where you will also be able to catch them this weekend.
However, despite bringing you loads of content from the event, there’s one more model worth mentioning – one that we almost missed because of how well it blended in with the other vehicles on show. That model is the Mercedes-Benz GLC 250 4Matic Edition 1. Yes, the limited-edition model is being shown at KLPAC’s grounds, and will soon be for sale. But, blink, and you’ll miss it.
Parked to the left of the main hall, the GLC 250 Edition 1 looks completely identical to the regular GLC 250. Both cars feature an AMG Line exterior kit and 20-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. The only distinction on the outside comes in the form of the “Edition” 1 badging on the front fenders.
Inside is where the changes are to be found. Rather than the regular upholstery, the GLC 250 Edition 1 gets a designo two-tone interior in platinum white pearl over black nappa leather. The open-pore black ash wood trim remains, along with the longitudinal-grain aluminium trim on the dashboard and steering.
A designo badge is featured on the backrests of the front and rear seats, while the door panels and door armrests also feature white pearl upholstery in a diamond design with white top-stitching. The black centre armrest gets the same white top-stitching treatment.
Crystal grey top-stitching is featured on the dashboard, which is now wrapped in black Artico man-made leather, and the black velour floor mats have “Edition 1” badges on them. The rest of the vehicle remains completely identical to the regular GLC 250 4Matic.
When quizzed about the Edition 1’s price, the folk at Mercedes-Benz Malaysia said that it hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it’s set to go on sale, though apparently only in a very small number.
