A more provocative alternative to the GLC, the AMG GLC 43 Coupe puts more of an emphasis on style than ultimate practicality. Less brutal than the 63, the 43 Coupe still manages solid peak outputs of 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. An AMG speedshift nine-speed automatic transmission is standard, along with a rear-biased 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.
Unlike lesser GLC coupes, the 43 sports the typical AMG upgrades that make it stand out even more. AMG body styling, quad exhaust outlets, 20-inch wheels, and gloss black exterior trim are all stylishly integrated. A power sunroof, LED headlamps and taillamps, and a rearview camera are all standard equipment. Move inside, and you’ll be greeted by 14-way power-adjustable front seats trimmed in MB-Tex and Dinamica upholstery. Red stitching and red seat belts are further sporty touches, along with AMG instrumentation and brushed aluminum pedals. Dual-zone automatic climate control, a power liftgate, a seven-inch touch screen, and front-seat heating make this a comfy and inviting cabin. The standard safety package encompasses Pre-Safe, seven airbags, blind-spot assist and active brake assist.
