Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC
Self-confidence means owning your strengths. And that’s exactly what the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 does as soon as you start the engine, acccelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds. But the V6 engine with 270 kW (367 hp) and 520 Nm can also exercise its power discreetly. AMG DYNAMIC SELECT helps it do just that with five driving modes — from very sporty to efficiently comfortable. Because understatement is another a form of self-confidence.
3.0-LITER V6 BITURBO ENGINE
You can recognize true athletes even before they move a muscle. The broad shoulder line and the upright radiator trim signal that the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC is packed with power. But the front end isn’t the only powerful symbol. The sharply cut profile and the broad, muscular rear end also contribute to the athletic design. Together they create a powerfully expressive form that makes a lasting impression. And that’s even before it starts to move.

These include striking AMG body styling, made up ofan AMG front apron with distinctively sporty air intakes with a diamond-pattern grille and simulated underguard in silver chrome, AMG rear apron with silver chrome trim strip and simulated underguard, as well as 48.3 cm (19-inch) AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted high-gloss black with mixed-size tires. The two tailpipe trim elements in a twin-tailpipe design and black features such as the exterior mirror housings, edge mouldings, and window surrounds round out the car's dynamic appearance. The "BITURBO 4MATIC" lettering on the front wings and the diamond radiator grille with chrome pins and a louvre in high-gloss black with "AMG" lettering all add to the exterior's sporty exclusiveness.
Sports Exhaust System.
A throaty sound characteristic of AMG- or a more reserved noise level – the acoustics of the AMG sports exhaust system adjust to the selected driving mode. The double-declutching function when downshifting underscores the sporty vehicle setup in"S" mode. In "S+" driving mode, the V6 engine sound is at its most emotional — with double-declutching function and misfire in overrun mode as well as during gear shifting. The two chrome-plated tailpipe trim elements bring the sporty character of the AMG sports exhaust system to life on visually. They are separated by a centerpiece, which creates a four-pipe look.

The 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine stands out for its state-of-the-art injection technology and mixture control, resulting in maximum power combined with low fuel consumption and emissions. Delivering 270 kW (367 hp) and 520 NM, the V6 unit sets new standards for Driving Performance in its segment — underscored by acceleration from 0-100 km/h in a breathtaking 4.9 seconds.
Featuring nine forward gears, this automatic transmission takes dynamics, efficiency and comfort to a completely new level. It is the world's first 9-speed automatic transmission with hydrodynamic torque converter in the premium segment. The wider gear ratio allows for a reduction in engine speed. Performance remains excellent, while ride comfort is enhanced and noise levels are reduced. Fast gear changes thanks to the AMG-specific tuning result in even better response and agility. The 9G-TRONIC also impresses with smooth, barely perceptible gear shifting similar to a continuously variable transmission. The 9G-TRONIC can skip individual gears, allowing for multiple downshifts for fast and powerful sprints.
AMG Performance 4MATIC.
The performance-oriented all-wheel drive developed by Mercedes-AMG combines optimum traction, hallmark AMG driving dynamics and maximum driving pleasure, thanks tothe clear torque distribution to the rear. Unlike in the standard model, Mercedes-AMG distributes the engine torque in a ratio of 31% to the front axle and 69% to the rear axle. In addition, AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive increases driving safety and traction on wet or wintry road surfaces.
A multiple-disc clutch with 50 Nm blocking effect guarantees that the full gripping potential of all four wheels, especially on snow or ice. This basic concept enables high-traction values because it uses a dynamic axle load shift toward to the rear axle during acceleration for additional drive torque to the rear. In addition to traction and transverse dynamics, the all-wheel drive also improves the longitudinal dynamics of the vehicle for even more dynamic acceleration.
AMG RIDE CONTROL Sports Suspension.
The multi-chamber air suspension system works in unison with a sporty, AMG-specific spring/damper setup and continuously variable damper control to ensure a very high standard of riding comfort and driving dynamics. Damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation and road surface conditions. Separate valves are used for damper compression and rebound for fast and precise adaptation. A harder spring rate, for example when cornering and braking, effectively reduces rolling movements. With "Comfort," "Sport" and "Sport+" settings, the driver can give the multi-chamber air suspension system a more comfortable, sporty or very sporty setup. Thanks to the pneumatic all-round self-leveling suspension, the vehicle maintains a constant level irrespective of the load. The suspension level can be raised to increase ground clearance. The suspension is automatically lowered at high speeds, helping reduce aerodynamic drag and further improve handling stability.
AMG Speed-Sensitive Sports Steering.
Speed-sensitive steering provides power assistance in line with the vehicle's speed. At high speeds the power assistance decreases, while at low speeds it is continually increased. Steering requires comparatively less effort at low speeds.
Optimum control of the vehicle is also possible at high speeds. The risk of the steering wheel being wrenched out of the driver's hands at high speeds is also substantially reduced. The selectable steering characteristics support a sporty or comfortable driving style.
