Higher boost and lower friction fortify the GLC 43 biturbo V6 to 385 hp, for 0-60 in 4.7 seconds. Handcrafted biturbo V8s release a stampede of horsepower: The 469-hp GLC 63 can hit 60 in 3.8 seconds, the 503-hp GLC 63 S in 3.6.
A paddle-shifted AMG SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed keeps you in charge of the GLC 43's 384 lb-ft of torque. In both GLC 63 Coupes, the multiclutch AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed is masterful with their mountains of torque. They all offer multiple modes and can downshift multiple gears.
AMG Performance 4MATIC turns torque into agility. The GLC 43's 31:69 rear bias quickens takeoffs and clings to corners. On the V8 models, variable-torque 4MATIC+ can send all their torque to the rear axle.
The AMG Sport Suspension is based on self-lowering, multimode AIR BODY CONTROL. You can vary its parameters to your liking via the driving programs of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT.
Big brake discs are cast with their perforations in place, not drilled later, to better manage stress. Multipiston front calipers apply stronger force more evenly. Ceramic compound front brakes are a GLC 63 S option.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter shifting, throttle, steering, suspension damping and more via a console paddle. Five modes range from Comfort to Sport+, plus a mode you can customize. The GLC 63 S adds a track-focused RACE mode.
The available AMG DRIVE UNIT puts AMG DYNAMIC SELECT modes and other features directly on the steering wheel. Color graphical displays in each control help make them easy to set on the fly.
The available AMG Performance Exhaust (standard on the V8s) features internal flaps and multiple modes. You can unleash a torque-rich rumble at the touch of a button. Or bring it down to a mellow growl to keep your neighbors happy.
Legendary for quality and style, AMG® wheels are available in numerous designs. All three coupes feature standard 20-inch wheels. Black finishes and 21-inch sizes are optional, as are forged alloys for the GLC 63 S.
AMG muscle further tones the GLC physique. Each model underscores its recontoured vertical-bar AMG grille with distinctive lower bodywork. Styling options add gloss black or carbon fiber accents, an AMG Performance Studio suite for the GLC 43, and aero elements for V8s.
From its color-keyed "jet wing" front apron trim to its rear spoiler, airflow is managed to benefit performance. AMG GLC 63 S Coupe in designo Cardinal Red with 21-inch AMG multispoke wheels pictured above.
The sporty, aggressively sculpted front air dam and rear valance are highlighted by chrome-plated underguards. Substantial 20-inch AMG® wheels celebrate the GLC Coupe's confident stance.
Sport seats, AMG instrumentation, and a thick flat-bottom steering wheel reward your every driving maneuver. True coupe luxury and design meet AMG personality and personalization, with a range of rich finishes and racing-rooted upgrades.
The AMG Performance steering wheel includes Touch Control Buttons, and a flat-bottom design in a choice of materials. You can add the AMG DRIVE UNIT controls to any of them.
Substantially bolstered sport front seats feature exclusive contouring, intuitive seat-shaped controls on the door, plus a 4-way power lumbar support. To set and save your ideal driving position, a memory system for each front seat recalls three stored positions for the seat, plus the positions of the 4-way power steering column and side mirrors for the driver. Both front seats also feature adjustable thigh support.
A widescreen color display with multitouch interface makes it easy to access a world of features, including audio, MB Navigation, phone and vehicle settings. In addition to the three input methods of the standard screen (touchscreen, console touchpad, and Touch Control steering wheel), it also responds to the advanced voice control you activate by saying "Hey, Mercedes." Predictive features can learn and anticipate your commands, while you can save groups of settings as themes and moods.
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 0.0002-inch from entering the cabin. 3-zone climate control is available as an option.
A vivid 12.3-inch screen directly in front of the driver offers customizable analog-style and digital displays for instrumentation and exclusive AMG readouts. The panel also integrates a large multifunction menu screen with illustrated and animated menus for vehicle information, settings and driver-assistance features. Several instrumentation styles can be selected, featuring a variety of AMG-specific analog-style, digital and graphical readouts.
A network of LEDs can create not just a soothing ambience in the cabin, but one you can alter to suit your mood, or even create one. The 64 selectable colors and adjustable brightness let you control the atmosphere like never before. Edge-lighting glows from around the console and numerous cabin areas, while the front door sills welcome you with AMG logos backlit in soft white.
One of the most respected makers of handcrafted high-end home audio, Germany's Burmester® has developed a surround-sound system that's specifically tailored to the GLC. With 13 high-quality speakers and a 590-watt 9-channel digital amplifier, the system fills the cabin with pure digital surround sound while seamlessly compensating for ambient noise. Exquisitely detailed aluminum speaker grilles are as rewarding to the eyes as the system's output is to the most discerning ears.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
With longer life, quicker illumination and beams that approximate daylight even more closely than xenon headlamps, the multi-element LED headlamps enhance both vision and visibility in nighttime driving. Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps and all other front light functions are integrated within the flowing sculpture of the headlamp assemblies, making the design as appealing as it is illuminating. Wide, horizontal taillamps feature an all-LED design with a three-dimensional design.
The Surround View System uses cameras in all four directions to compose a single, live overhead view of your immediate surroundings. Displayed on the in-dash screen during low-speed maneuvers, it can help you avoid obstacles as you negotiate tight spaces, whether you're moving forward or backing up. A special mode zooms in to help you line up your GLC and a trailer to attach it to the available hitch.
An advanced system of 7 air bags offers 9-way occupant protection. Dual two-stage front air bags, combined thorax/pelvic bags for driver and front passenger, a driver's knee air bag, and side curtain air bags for both seating rows are standard.
Greater use of aluminum helps the body shell of the GLC elevate its overall rigidity, occupant protection and acoustic qualities while reducing weight, even with a significant increase in cabin space. Along with high-strength and ultrahigh-strength steel, numerous components and strategic reinforcements are made of diecast, extruded and stamped aluminum, as well as heat-treated steel and laser-welded, "tailored" sheet steel that's created with predetermined, varying thicknesses.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) can automatically detect a substantial loss of tire pressure in any wheel and alert the driver via a warning message in the multifunction display. The advanced TPMS can also display the numeric tire pressure for each mounted wheel.
A camera in the windshield can record activity occurring in front of the vehicle, and let you save it for playback using your own compatible USB flash drive. Potentially useful for documenting an accident or other event, the 1,280x720-pixel video with a 30-Hz frame rate can also include vehicle speed and the time of day. Playback can be viewed on the car's multimedia display or on your own computer via your USB flash drive.
Brake Assist (BAS®) senses emergency braking via the speed at which the driver presses the brake pedal and immediately applies maximum available power boost. Brake Assist can potentially reduce the overall stopping distance by eliminating the delay caused by a common human tendency not to brake hard enough, soon enough. Letting up on the brake pedal releases Brake Assist.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
