The Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 gets more horsepower in its latest makeover

Following a successful release in 2016, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4Matic SUV and Coupe have been updated with a fresh new look, along with an impressive selection of new features - some of which you can read about here.

New engine with more horsepower
Both the SUV and Coupe models will be powered by a revised version of the same twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine that powers the current GLC 43 models. With an increase of 23-bhp, the new engine offers drivers 385-bhp and a 0-62mph time of just 4.9 seconds.

Driving modes for better handling
With five driving modes programmed into the SUV and Coupe, drivers are able to choose from “slippery”, “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport+” and “Individual”. These driving modes will alter the characteristics of the car, modifying key parameters, such as engine response, transmission, suspension and steering.

Exterior facelift
As part of the facelift, both models will be fitted with a new-look AMG Panamericana grille which will distinguish them from their predecessors, as well as new LED headlights, reprofiled bumpers to the front & rear of the car and new wheels ranging from 19-21 inches in diameter.

Sporty interior with the new MBUX operating system
The sporty feel doesn’t stop at the exterior and handling of the car, in fact both models feature black sports seats with contrast red topstitching as standard. Offering plenty of space to both passengers and luggage, the GLC 43 models both offer an extensive range of safety features, as well as a high level of comfort for those long distance journeys. The adoption of the new MBUX operating system comes as perhaps the most notable change - allowing drivers to operate their Infotainment functions either via touchpad or steering wheel buttons.

The new models are expected to reach the UK market by the end of this year, however Mercedes-AMG are yet to announce exact dates.
