Mercedes GLC 300 4Matic Gets A Lot Of Social Media Attention

Good and also some bad, thats is the current social media attention on this new GLC 300. 

Priced at RM429,800 and this is because it is fully imported and comes with new features. The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4Matic is powered by a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine making 258Ps and 400Nm of torque which gives the car a century sprint time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 240km/h and is also available as a mild hybrid with 48-volt technology and a second generation integrated starter-generator.

The vehicle also includes Guard 360° vehicle protection among other key safety features.

So, why is there a number of negative social media chatter on this latest GLC 300 4Matic? Well, the first issue is its asking price which has risen by a hefty RM80,000. The previous best selling GLC 300 4Matic was priced only at Rm349,800 and it sold very well.

However, the previous GLC was locally assembled and that was some 4 years ago. Currency exchange and the higher cost of production has all new cars, besides this Mercedes, costing more in Malaysian showrooms.

The next issue is that this selling price is still higher than the more attractive and recently launched GLC Coupe at RM419,800.
