Fresh for a mid-life facelift, the new Mercedes-AMG GLC43 4MATIC Coupe is the consummate blend of AMG sportiness and Mercedes-Benz comfort too. More agile on the road than before and with more lateral dynamics on tap. This crossover coupe is the perfect motoring tool for the performance-oriented driver who also likes the outdoorsy lifestyle.
Right from the first time you lay your eyes on the car, the newly designed A-shaped AMG-specific radiator grille and the huge air intakes in the front bumper hints of the GLC43 4MATIC Coupe’s intent. The typical Coupe line design additionally accentuates its high performance while at the rear, you can recognise the engine directly on the diffuser with the quad round tailpipes of the AMG exhaust system. Another highlight – the 21-inch light alloy wheels in double-spoke design which is exclusive to the GLC43.
Propelled by the tried-and-tested turbocharged 3-litre V6 engine which produces 390 hp and 520 Nm from just 2500 rpm, the GLC43 4MATIC Coupe is fast. The century sprint takes 4.9 seconds, with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed automatic shifting through the gears with laser-like precision, and if you stay on the accelerator pedal, top speed will soon arrive at 249 km/h. These are performance figures which many sports cars will struggle to emulate.
Elsewhere, the AMG Performance seats provide excellent support while you have every driving situation under control with AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving programs with AMG-specific parameterisation, AMG electronic rear-axle limited-slip differential and AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive.
