Mercedes continues to grow its AMG range with the introduction of the fourth model in just three weeks. After we saw the Mercedes AMG C43 Coupe and Cabrio, and the E43 AMG, Mercedes is presenting us the new GLC43 AMG, the sporty version of its compact SUV.

Under the bonnet we find the same AMG 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine with two turbochargers and a power output of 367 hp, together with the 520 Nm torque from 2500-4500 rpm.

The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is standard and manages to reduce the shift times of the 9-speed transmission. The multiple downshift allows even faster short bursts of speed, while the double-declutching function in the “Sport” and “Sport Plus” transmission modes makes for an even more emotive driving experience. Defined ignition adjustments also provide faster gearshifts than in the “Eco” and “Comfort” modes. “Manual” mode can be selected using a separate button in the centre console.

Affalterbach developers have designed an autonomous sports suspension on the basis of the Air Body Control air suspension. Also specifically adapted, the Adaptive Damping system ADS PLUS can be adjusted in the three stages “Comfort”, “Sport” and “Sport Plus”.

The standard-fit all-wheel drive AMG performance 4Matic is characterised by the rear-biased torque distribution of 31 percent at the front axle to 69 percent at the rear axle. This configuration ensures more driving dynamics and higher lateral acceleration on the road plus improved traction during acceleration.

The new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC celebrates its world premiere in March 2016 at the New York International Auto Show, and sales release is on 4 April, with market launch beginning in June 2016.
