Mercedes-Benz will soon fill a gap in its SUV line-up in Australia, with the arrival of the new midsized GLC-Class.

Revealed last month, the new model will sit above the compact GLA and below the new GLE in Mercedes’ Australian line-up, with the latter replacing the M-Class and set to arrive from September.

The GLC’s predecessor in the GLK was unavailable to Australian customers, owing to its left-hand-drive-only production, but now Benz has an SUV to rival BMW’s X3 and Audi’s Q5 here.

Mercedes has chosen a trio of models to kick off its midsized SUV strategy in this market, with more variants to follow from 2016 and beyond.

For now, all variants come equipped with the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system and a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The cheapest way into the GLC is the 220d, with prices starting at $64,500 plus on-road costs.

For this, buyers will get a 2.1 litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing 125kW and 400Nm while returning 5.5 l/100km.

Features for the 220d include an electric tailgate and 19-inch alloy wheels along with LED lights both front and rear. A 360-degree camera, electric front seats and satellite navigation are standard in the interior.

For petrol buyers, the sole choice for now is the GLC 250 with its 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 155kW and 350Nm while returning 7.1 l/100km.

The GLC 250 can hit 100km/h from rest in 7.3 seconds, with prices starting from $67,900 plus on-roads.

Topping the local range is the 250d, which packs 150kW and 500Nm from the same 2.1 litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel as the 220d.

The 250d is priced from $69,990 plus on-roads and despite the power boost, it matches the 220d’s fuel figure of 5.5 l/100km.

Both the 250 and 250d get 20-inch alloys over the 220d’s 19-inch wheels, along with leather trim, tinted glass, a proximity key and more.

For drivers looking to boost the GLC’s off-road capabilities, an options package is available which boosts the ride-height by 50mm and adds a switch to the cabin to select from up to five off-road driving modes.

However, the off-road kit can only be purchased alongside the optional airbag suspension package.

Safety features include Benz’s driver fatigue monitoring, crosswind assist, headlight assist and autonomous emergency braking in all models, while upper-spec variants also score semi-autonomous steering assist, cross-traffic alert and more.

It’s entirely possible the GLC will become one of Mercedes’ best-selling models in Australia, following in the wheel-tracks of its C-Class cousin upon which the GLC is based.

Cheaper 2WD models could appear in the line-up sometime in the future, along with AMG performance models.

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC is expected to arrive in local showrooms from December.
