Mercedes-Benz has launched the GLC Celebration Edition to mark 70 years of the Indian independence. The special edition is available with the petrol as well as diesel engine options of the GLC in Sport trim. The GLC 220 d Celebration Edition is priced at Rs 50.86 lakh while the GLC 300 Celebration Edition costs Rs 51.25 lakh. These are Rs 88,000 pricier than the equivalent Sport trims.

The GLC Celebration Edition gets the following kit:

- LED puddle lamps with Mercedes-Benz logo

- Gloss black outside rear view mirrors

- Sporty stainless steel pedals with non-slip studs

- Chrome detailing on the front and rear

- SD card loaded with Garmin Map Pilot for offline navigation

The luxury carmaker also took this opportunity to introduce a new Designo Hyacinth red to the list of colour options for the GLC SUV. Recently, the GLC family also got a new member in the form of GLC 43 coupe with AMG performance.


The GLC 220 d packs a 2.1-litre diesel engine that makes 170PS between 3000 and 4200rpm and 400Nm of torque between 1400 and 2800rpm. The GLC 300 gets a punchier 2.0-litre petrol motor that pumps 245PS of power at 5500rpm and 370Nm of torque between 1300 and 4000rpm. Paired with a 9-speed automatic sending power to all four wheels, the diesel variants deliver a 0-100kmph acceleration figure of 8.3 seconds while the petrol variant trumps that figure by accelerating to 100kmph in 6.5 seconds.

The GLC line starts at Rs 46.49 lakh for the GLC 220 d in Style trim and tops out at Rs 74.8 lakh for the GLC 43. The GLC's prime rivals include the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
