Interior

Even high-performance athletes are nothing without their equipment. That’s why the driver of the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 can expect everything from its cockpit: high-quality workmanship, breathtaking design, and handling that gets your heart pumping. The optional AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfiber provides a perfect grip, for example. And with the AMG instrument cluster, you’ll always have valuable driving information in view. Its RACETIMER allows you to measure and store lap times on the racetrack. You might never want to get out of the car again.    

3.0-Liter-V6-Biturbo Engine.

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.    

AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G.

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 AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G also impresses with smooth, barely perceptible gear shifting similar to a continuously variable transmission. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G 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.
