2017 Mercedes Benz AMG GLC 43 unveiled
Mercedes-Benz put one of their new SUV’s under the scalpel and the result is the new AMG GLC 43. This new AMG version of the SUV is the latest entry to the 43 AMG lineup of the company. With the introduction of this AMG badging on the vehicle, it turns the rather simple looking SUV into a proper performance machine.
The 2017 Mercedes AMG GLC 43 gets a diamond slate grille upfront which gives it a sportier look, along with the introduction of beautiful 19’’ glossy black alloy wheels to give that AMG stance to the SUV. Similar tweaks have been given to the air-vents and rear diffuser to make the car look even more aggressive.
Under the hood of the 2017 Mercedes AMG GLC 43 lies a 3.0L V6 engine that churns out 327bhp of power along with a massive 520Nm of torque. This is combined to a 9-speed automatic transmission coupled with paddle shifters and an all-wheel drive system. All this power coupled with Mercedes legendary drive select system helps this large and bulky AMG powered SUV reach 0-100km/h in just 4.9 seconds. That is fast!!!
As far as the interiors of the 2017 Mercedes AMG GLC 43 are concerned, some updates have also been given to it. The dashboard gets nice leather and suede touches to it, along with red stitching on the leather seats, which include sporty bucket seats in the front and a revamped digital instrument console setup. All these improvements and add-ons make this GLC 43 deserve its AMG badging. The regular version of the Mercedes AMG GLC 43 is expected to reach Indian shores in July while the more insane AMG version will be launched at a later date.
