GLC43 - US / Canada - Videos

Saw 2 new videos pop up on YouTube in the last couple of days of US / Canadian market GLC43s.

Neither video really should tell you anything new. Though one thing that caught my eye in both videos is that despite having the zero-cost interior (641 Black MB-Tex w/ DINAMICA and Red Stitching), the passenger seat had the thigh extender and memory function. I was previously under the impression you had to get the leather package to get those.

Cardinal Red w/ Night Package, 20" Multispoke Wheels

Polar White w/ 20" Multispoke Wheels

First video is nicely done. Red GLC43 appears NOT to have flat bottom steering wheel. Heated wheel?

You got to love the German autobahn. It seems very quiet at high speed. Will be perfect for my cross Europe journeys.

I think that's a safe guess. Especially since the dealer who created the video appears to be based in Alberta, Canada. (Brrrr!)

Curious. Is there a Performance Exhaust option for the GLC43 like the C43?

And the wipers don't chatter.

Not in the UK. As I understand it changes depends on the vehicle settings, not sure whether that is the same or not.

The C43 exhaust option (with valves at the back and a button on the console) is not available for the GLC43 in the US.

Thanks. What a shame. Dumb move Mercedes. It's not available on the GLE43 Coupe either. I'm considering the upcoming 2017 GLE43 SUV (non Coupe) but wont if not available.

Yep. Check out the 1:22 mark. You can see the stalk to turn on the heated steering wheel.
