Alongside the new X253 Mercedes-Benz GLC, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia also introduced the facelifted C253 GLC Coupe, which is available in a sole GLC 300 AMG Line CKD variant. Pricing starts at RM419,888 on-the-road without insurance (up RM20k compared to the outgoing model), and includes a four-year/unlimited mileage warranty.

Styling updates that come with the facelift include a more angular grille that is flanked by slimmer, trapezoidal-shaped headlamps, while the rear gets GLE-inspired taillights with ring-shaped graphics within them.

As the AMG Line exterior is present here, a single-louvre diamond grille and A-wing-style front bumper are standard fitments, while the rear apron gets a more expressive diffuser element sandwiched between the dual exhausts tips.

The GLC Coupe also comes with Night Package, Multibeam LED system with Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus and staggered 20-inch AMG five-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels. However, unlike its non-coupe siblings, it run on normal tyres rather than run-flats (there’s a tyre repair kit under the boot floor), and it sports a smaller front sunroof instead of a panoramic item.

Power comes from a new M264 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 258 PS (254 hp) and 370 Nm, which is mated to a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic transmission and a 4Matic all-wheel drive system. The top speed here is 240 km/h, while the zero to 100 km/h time is 6.3 seconds. A stiffer sports suspension is also fitted as standard.

Inside, you get an AMG Line interior, Nappa leather AMG steering wheel, leather upholstery (an upgrade over Artico leather on the non-coupe GLCs), paddle shifters, ambient lighting, triple-zone Thermotronic climate control, electrically-adjustable front seats with memory function, illuminated door sills, AMG floor mats, rear door sunshades and a new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system that comes with the facelift.

The MBUX system is linked to a 10.25-inch touchscreen and Burmester sound system, and features a LTE module to power the Mercedes me connect services. It also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and powers a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster display.

Other standard features include Active Brake Assist (autonomous emergency braking or AEB), Blind Spot Assist, Active Parking Assist with Parktronic, Active Lane Keeping Assist, a 360-degree view camera, cruise control, Keyless-Go, Pre-Safe, Hands Free Access and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
