Right before the GLC Coupe was unveiled today at the New York Auto Show in all its production glory, Mercedes released a trailer of sorts yesterday.
Scheduled to arrive in Europe this summer, the AMG GLC 43 4Matic will be sporting a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine under the bonnet. Paired with Mercedes' new 9G-Tronic automatic transmission and 4Matic all-wheel-drive system, the four door coupe will have a 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque output. All of this combined will give the GLC 43 a 0-62mph time of less than five seconds.
For those of you wondering what the fuel economy would be like for a vehicle that’s going up against the X4 M40i, you’ll be seeing a combined fuel consumption of 8.7-8.3 l/100km along with a combined CO2 emissions of 199-189 g/km.
Living up to the coupe name the GLC 43 gets a more angled rear roofline that cuts into the rear seat headroom, trunk space and visibility but it makes up for this with a sportier look. While the front looks very similar to the regular GLC, the rear has been designed to include broader shoulders, a diffuser style rear bumper, and narrower taillights.
The Chassis has also been upgraded to include the Air Body Control air suspension, adjustable dampers, bigger brakes and Mercedes’ five mode Dynamic Select system.
Mercedes has not released pricing details yet but you can expect to hear about it soon with the Europe ordering books opening soon.
