Specs and Features in the 2020 GLC
This promises to be the best GLC yet, and it starts with the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system. The voice-command multimedia interface uses artificial intelligence to decipher the driver’s commands and responds accordingly, whether you want to change the music or inquire about the weather. Best of all, unlike most voice-command interfaces, this one uses natural voice recognition so you won’t need to enunciate everything clearly. The MBUX system can easily detect your voice as if you’re speaking in conversation. Other highlights in the 2020 GLC include:
- Burmester® Surround Sound System
- Android Auto/Apple CarPlay
- Mercedes me connect services
- LED headlamps
- Panorama sunroof
- 3-zone automatic climate control
- Large driver display screen
- And much more!
