The Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 coupe just made its debut in India, taking up the tally of this year’s Mercedes-Benz launches in India to the figure of eight. This is also the third AMG model to make its way into the country this year, after the G63 Edition 463 and GLS 63 AMGs. The newly launched model distinguishes itself from the regular GLC with a coupe-styled SUV body coupled with AMG performance. Powered by a 3-litre V6 bi-turbo unit that can belt out a powerful 362 bhp and is mated to an improved 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic gearbox, the AMG GLC 43 is available in an all-wheel drive variant—only for India. As for the 0-100 sprint, the coupe takes just 4.8 seconds to do it, and its top speed is electronically limited to 250 kmph. The vehicle gets five driving modes – Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual. Its exterior sports a sloping coupe-like roof, while the AMG-style exterior kit that includes the diamond-pattern grille, muscular front bumper, silver side skirts along with a well-sculpted rear all come together to give it an aggressive, hard-core stance. As for the interior, you’ll find premium upholstery with AMG logo stitched in the head rests, with red seat belts and embossed door sill plates.
