There are two powerful model variants to choose from: The GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE Coupé is the brand’s first performance hybrid SUV coupé (combined fuel consumption 7.5 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 170 g/km, combined power consumption 12.7 kWh /100 km) with 500 kW (680 HP) system output at the start. There is also the entry-level model, the GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé (combined fuel consumption 10.2-9.8 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 232-223 g/km) with 310 kW (421 hp) power and a short-term boost of 10 kW (14 hp) via the belt-driven starter generator. The extensive standard equipment with rear-axle steering, all-wheel drive, AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission with wet starting clutch and AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with adaptive damping supports the dynamic driving experience.
The sporty silhouette with a flowing transition to the rear is the main feature of the new Mercedes-AMG GLC Coupé. The headlights connect to the top of the AMG-specific radiator trim and thus emphasise the width of the vehicle. The AMG front apron in jet wing design with large air inlets, vertical fins and additional flics sets striking, independent accents. Precise side edges emphasise the sporty proportions and the powerful wheel arches.
The wheel arch trim in the body colour and the AMG side skirt trim are harmoniously integrated into the elegant basic shape. The confident appearance is also emphasised by the wide track and flush-fitting wheels in 19-, 20- or 21-inch formats. Several of the wheels offered ex works feature a glossy aesthetic with bi-colour surfaces. Optional equipment includes entry-optimised running boards and numerous other packages.
The two-part taillights visually widen the rear view with a black, dark red connecting element. The AMG-specific rear apron in a diffuser look (GLC 43) or with an additional diffuser board (GLC 63 S) as well as the two double tailpipe trims (round on the GLC 43, trapezoidal on the GLC 63 S) reinforce the powerful impression.
In the interior, AMG seats in ARTICO man-made leather / MICROCUT AMG microfiber with unique graphics and covers provide a sporty touch. Optional upholstery made of leather and Nappa leather with an embossed AMG coat of arms in the front headrests is available. The AMG performance seats are also available as options.
There is also the standard AMG Performance steering wheel in Nappa leather (GLC 43) or Nappa leather/MICROCUT microfiber (GLC 63 S). It is flattened at the bottom, perforated in the handle area and equipped with silver-coloured aluminum shift paddles. The two round AMG steering wheel buttons enable quick and precise operation of various driving dynamics functions and the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving programmes. The sporty, luxurious atmosphere is rounded off by AMG sports pedals, AMG floor mats and illuminated door sills with AMG lettering.
The MBUX infotainment system includes various AMG-specific displays and functions. These include the independent displays in the instrument cluster, in the portrait format multimedia central display in the centre console and in the optional head-up display. The AMG-exclusive “Supersport” style offers the possibility of displaying various content via a vertical structure. This includes a set-up menu that shows the current chassis or transmission settings. The driver can also have a navigation map or consumption data displayed in supersport style.
Also integrated is AMG TRACK PACE (standard in the GLC 63 S, optional for the GLC 43), the data logger for use on the racetrack. The software records more than 80 vehicle-specific data ten times per second while driving around a racetrack, such as speed, acceleration, steering angle and brake pedal operation. The display of lap and sector times as well as additional training and analysis tools are also revealing.
