Mercedes-AMG GLC43 arrives in New York with 362 hp
Mercedes-AMG has unveiled the GLC43 in New York.
Set to go on sale later this year, the GLC43 has a familiar design but is distinguished by a sportier front fascia with a diamond radiator grille and a chrome splitter. Designers also installed black mirror caps, a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system, and 20-inch AMG lightweight alloy wheels with a two-tone finish.
Interior changes are fairly limited but buyers will find a multifunction sports steering wheel, sports seats, and an AMG instrument cluster with a checkered flag motif.
A b-iturbo 3.0-litre V6 engine resides under the hood and produces 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and a rear-biased AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive system which enables the model to accelerate from 0-96 kilometres per hour in 4.8 seconds before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 249 km/h.
Besides featuring a powerful engine, the crossover has been equipped with a high-performance braking system, a sport-tuned steering system, and an AMG Ride Control sport suspension. The model also has an AMG Dynamic Select system which modifies the response of the engine, transmission, and steering system.
