The 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe: Because everyone wants more fast



AMG continues its quest to place its badge on everything Mercedes makes, filling in the gaps in its expanding lineup. The latest vehicle to say AMG on the back (and the sides, and the wheels, and...) is the GLC Coupe. Just like the GLC300 4Matic Coupe we reviewed earlier this year, the GLC43 Coupe is a fastback crossover that appeals to drivers who want the most of the utility of a compact SUV with a sportier look. And now with some added performance.

Like other 43 AMG models, it can be considered a sort of tweener model that bridges the gap between the normal production Mercedes and the full-bore AMGs – the 45s, 55s, 63s, and 65s of the world. This new AMG "coupe" features the same 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 from the regular Mercedes-AMG GLC43 crossover that generates 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. With an AMG-tuned 4Matic all-wheel-drive system that is rear-biased (31:69) and a quick-shiftinf nine-speed automatic transmission, the 0-to-60-mph sprint takes just 4.8 seconds. The GLC43 Coupe's direct competitor, the BMW X4 M40i, isn't as powerful at 355 horsepower, but takes slightly less time to get to 60 mph – 4.7 seconds according to BMW.
