Refined performance, sharpened driving dynamics, and expressive design are just some of the updates Mercedes-AMG has made to the new GLC 43 4MATIC models. More powerful than its predecessor, the GLC 43 benefits from an updated 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine that produces 385 hp on demand. An optimally tuned AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G Torque-Clutch Transmission guarantees perfect sequences in all driving situations, considerably faster gearshifts, and AMG’s trademark acceleration. In conjunction with the AMG DYNAMICS agility control system, a rear-biased AMG Performance 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive configuration gives the GLC 43 optimal traction and a sporty feel.

The updated GLC 43 SUV and Coupe come equipped with an upgraded six-cylinder engine from Mercedes-AMG. This 3.0 litre 6 cylinder turbocharged engine produces 385 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque — an increase of 23 hp over the previous model. In addition to applicative adjustments made to the software, the higher output comes courtesy of two separate, standalone turbocharger units. Mounted close to the engine, the two turbochargers are especially spontaneous in their response — the GLC 43 SUV and Coupe are able to accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in a mere 4.9 seconds.

The sporty design characteristics of the GLC 43 4MATIC SUV and Coupe continue all the way through to the interior of the vehicle. These mid-size performance SUVs feature sports seats as standard, which offer improved lateral support to both the driver and front passenger. Upholstered in black ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfiber, the seats are accented with red topstitching. Aluminum trim elements throughout the vehicle serve to highlight the vehicle’s sporty aspirations. Both the SUV and Coupe models of the GLC 43 feature a variable interior that offer an extensive range of safety features, ample room for passengers and luggage, and a high-level of long-distance comfort.

The GLC 43 4MATIC SUV and Coupe come equipped with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G Torque-Clutch transmission that ensures responsive shifting with short shift times. Optimally tuned to the engine, the transmission guarantees the trademark acceleration typical of any AMG. An “M” mode, activated by shift paddles on the steering wheel, allows drivers to enter into manual gear shifting, providing for an even more dynamic drive. The 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC SUV and Coupe will go on sale in Canada by the end of the year
