One of the best design icon from Audi, the A5 Coupe has undergone a massive makeover with the advent of its second-generation model nine years after its inception.

We all know that the all-new Mercedes GLC is based on the C-Class platform, but to consider it as a mere jacked-up car would be an unfair account of the design and engineering effort by the company in making this car. The GLC is a replacement to the GLK-Class, the renaming is the result of Mercedes's new nomenclature scheme.

Moreover, its time for the company to steal some sales from its arch rivals - Audi and BMW, as the GLC is likely to render a far-more tougher competition to the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. For sometime now, the company will sell the GLC as limited-run CBU model called as 'Edition 1' featuring almost every optional features along with the standard ones as well, until local assembly of the model commences in India.
