The new Mercedes-AMG GLC43 4MATIC is the consummate blend of AMG sportiness and Mercedes-Benz comfort in an extremely functional SUV package. Designed to be more agile on the road and trail than before and with increased lateral dynamics on tap, it is the perfect SUV for the performance-loving driver who also fancies the occasional jaunt off-road.
The newly designed AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical black slats and the huge air intakes in the front bumper hint of the GLC43 4MATIC’s purpose. At the rear, the quad round tailpipes of the AMG exhaust system take centre stage and showcase the SUV’s potent performance. 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 will leave many sports cars in its wake. The 0 to 100 km/h dash 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.
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.
