Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupé Presented



Mercedes-AMG is once again extending its product portfolio with the addition of a very dynamic model: the new Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe combines a sporty, elegant design with the brand’s hallmark driving performance and the advantages of an SUV in terms of seating position, interior flexibility and traction off-road. The 362 hp AMG-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo engine, AMG-enhanced 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission with shortened shift times and the AMG Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, configured with a rear bias, form the basis for an especially dynamic on-road driving experience. A significant contribution is also made here by the AMG Sport Suspension based on the multi-chamber air suspension system, AIR BODY CONTROL, with adaptive damping adjustment. Additionally, the AMG GLC43 Coupe is able to undertake occasional off-road excursions: the ground clearance can be increased at the touch of a button and pneumatic all-round self-levelling ensures constant vehicle level at all times.


The GLC Coupe fulfills a very wide variety of tasks with style: the unmistakable design stands out from the crowd without being overpowering, sports car-like performance reveals the Coupe to be a thoroughbred performance car and convenience settings selectable at the touch of a button make it a reliable companion whatever the conditions. The GLC43 Coupe accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and its speed is electronically limited to 130 mph.


The AMG-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo engine is used in numerous AMG Performance models. It delivers a maximum output of 362 hp plus maximum torque of 384 lb-ft. Installed close to the engine, the two turbochargers react quickly to throttle inputs. The performance yield comes courtesy of a high amount of boost pressure, which has been increased to 16 psi. The NANOSLIDE® coating of the cylinder liners is also used in the Formula 1® engines of MERCEDES-AMG PETRONAS team. Especially tough and wear-resistant, this coating reduces friction, contributing to higher efficiency. The same applies to the spray-guided multiple injections with up to 2900 psi of fuel pressure. Visually, the powerplant can be identified by a red aluminum insert on the engine cover and an AMG logo.
