Mercedes-Benz India has released the GLC 43 Coupe performance SUV in India. The Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe will cost Rs 74.8 lakh ex-showroom, which is the same price as before. Mercedes-Benz India is putting a lot of effort into putting its 43 AMG series engine in its Indian sports cars. We already have cars like the CLA 43 AMG, GLA 43 AMG, C 43 AMG, and SLC 43 AMG, and now we have the GLC 43 AMG Coupe. Also coming in the future is the E 43 AMG.
The GLC 43 Coupe has a 3-liter V6 engine with two turbochargers that makes 362 PS of power and 520 Nm of torque. It’s an SUV, but it drives like a sports car. It only takes 4.9 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h, and its top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.
This is the latest AMG model, and it has all-wheel drive and 4-matic technology, just like all the other new ones. The regular GLC has air suspension, and so does the AMG version. The engine is paired with a 9G-Tronic gearbox that has 9 speeds. There are different driving modes, such as Comfort, Eco, Sport, and Sport+, so that the software can change the 9 gear ratios to make driving more fun.
The roof of the GLC 43 AMG slopes down like the roof of the GLA coupe, which is different from the typical SUV. It looks great with its AMG-specific body kit, which has a lot of carbon fibre parts and four exhaust pipes at the back.
If you go inside, you will also find carbon fibre. The whole centre console has a carbon fibre finish that looks very sporty. It gets a sports steering wheel with a flat bottom and AMG branding. Also, don’t expect a lot of space inside because the sloping roof takes some of that away for the back passenger. Compared to the regular GLC, there is less space in the trunk. Even the company agrees that the styling of the GLC AMG Coupe comes at the cost of some practicality. The price is right for the GLC 43 AMG Coupe. There is no SUV on the market that gets good gas mileage and drives like a sports car.
