    The upcoming updated 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV has been testing for quite some time now, and has been getting spotted by the spying cameras. Recently, another test prototype model of the refreshed new GLC was spotted testing the roads again revealing some more details. The interesting fact about this test mule is that it was a right-hand drive model, and so this could be an export unit. The latest spotted Mercedes-Benz GLC prototype model was also veiled lightly with a thin layer of body camouflage, while its front fascia was heavily camouflaged, indicating that the GLC SUV facelift will be coming with an all-new face.

    The updated 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV is expected to be unveiled towards the end of 2018 or early in 2019, which should soon be followed by its global market launch. However, how soon it will land up in the Indian car market, cannot be commented on at the moment, but it might not take very long after the global launch; approximately max a year’s time.

    The Mercedes-Benz GLC luxury SUV hit the global market back in 2015, and was soon launched in the car market of India in June 2016. Now is the right time for the GLC SUV for its mid-life facelift. The German luxury auto giant even displayed the pre-production model of the refreshed GLC SUV at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

    As already mentioned above, the most recently spotted test prototype model of the refreshed Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV flaunted very heavy veils on its face. It s grille and front bumper were heavily camouflaged, which certainly means that the updated SUV model will be getting restyled or fully newly designed grille and front bumper, while the headlights are also going to come with revisions made to it, thus offering a new front fascia. The headlights of the test mule could be partially observed, as they were not fully camouflaged and thus, it is apparent that they have been redesigned and are significantly different from the ones that were seen on GLS F-Cell (fuel cell) version.

    The side profile and the rear end of the updated GLC are also expected to be endowed with a number of mild cosmetic updates and changes. For now, the rear end of the vehicle, although under thin camouflage can be ascertained to be very similar to that of the ongoing model of the GLC. Nevertheless, Mercedes is likely to endow some subtle but good visual changes all around the refreshed GLC SUV in its final production version in order to offer a fresh appeal.

    Meanwhile, some other spy shots have also offered us a glimpse of the cabin of the Mercedes-Benz GLC facelift model. This test prototype model of the SUV showed that the updated GLC will be featuring the new huge 12.3 inch digital driver's display as well as the larger 10.25 inch display integrated infotainment system. At the moment, the other equipment list changes and the under the hood bit details are unknown.
