Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 43 Coupe Launched At Rs 76.70 Lakh
It is the first-ever locally manufactured AMG performance model in India
The facelifted GLC Coupe launched here in early-2020 finally gets the performance variant.
The AMG GLC 43 Coupe has a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 that makes 390PS and 520Nm.
It has the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system and a 9-speed automatic transmission.
It also gets AMG Ride Control+ suspension to balance between sportiness and comfort.
Being a locally made model, the final on-road price of the AMG SUV coupe offering has reduced by over Rs 20 lakh.
The facelifted Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe was launched in India back in March but at the time, it was missing the AMG variant. It has now finally been launched here as the first made-in-India AMG performance model which helps bring down its final on-road price by over Rs 20 lakh. The new AMG GLC 43 Coupe is priced at Rs 76.70 lakh (ex-showroom pan-India).
The 43 moniker represents the fact that it is a baby AMG without the heroic V8 but it will still offer plenty of usable performance. The new GLC 43 Coupe offers 390PS and 520Nm of performance from the 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine. It’s mated to the 9-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission. Power is sent to all four wheels via Mercedes’ 4MATIC drivetrain system with a rear-biased torque split of 31 percent to the front and the rest to the rear axle. The claimed 0-100kph time is a quick 4.9 seconds. It also gets the option of the AMG performance exhaust for more noise to match its pace.
Like the more tame variants of the 2020 GLC Coupe, the AMG 43 version also offers plenty of cabin comforts such as the 10.25-inch touchscreen MBUX infotainment system with connected car technology and digital assistant, a Burmeister sound system, and the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. It gets an AMG-specific steering wheel with trackpad controls that can also be used to switch between its various drive modes: Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual. The AMG GLC 43 Coupe also comes with the AMG Ride Control+ adaptive suspension that finds the balance between driving agility and ride comfort. Its safety equipment includes seven airbags and active braking assist.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 43 Coupe doesn’t have any direct rivals in India at the moment. Its closest competitor in the sporty SUV segment is the pricier Porsche Macan and the more powerful BMW X3 M.
