Comfort for Five

Whether you’re cruising through Kahului or Lahaina, the Fletcher Jones team believes you should always travel comfortably, and when it comes to comfort, you wouldn’t expect anything less than top-notch features from a Mercedes-Benz. That’s why the Mercedes-Benz GLC offers dual-zone automatic climate control, 40/20/40-split rear seats with power folding, and a 7-inch freestanding color display, which uses a high pixel count to display video, maps, vehicle settings and more. Include the optional In-car WiFi hotspot, rear seat entertainment, and Burmester® Surround Sound system and the GLC transforms into every passenger’s dream ride.

Nine Speeds and Five Modes

The GLC is offered with three engines, ranging from 241 to 362 hp. Connected to each is a 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles, which offer a broad range of gear ratios, enhanced fuel-efficiency, and quiet operation. Transform the car’s character the flip of a switch. DYNAMIC SELECT lets drivers choose from five different driving modes (ECO, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual).


As previously mentioned, the 2018 GLC SUV earned the 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, the IIHS’s highest honor, for the past two consecutive years, and for good reason. The GLC is backed by some of the most innovative safety technology including features like:

  • Electronic Stability Program (ESP®)
  • Crosswind Assist and Trailer Stability Assist
  • Rearview camera
  • And more!

Coupe or SUV? Why Not Both?
