With the powerful arrival of the SUV into the automotive industry that such a good performance are giving to the majority of brands, the manufacturers were not long in re-exploring uncharted territory: the SUV high-performance. I don’t just mean todocaminos with a great engine and hundreds of horses under the hood, but crossovers sports cars that are capable of spinning very fine in circuits and twisty roads. Today the company Mercedes-AMG shows us his latest creation, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4Matic Coupe.
The AMG GLC 43 4Matic Coupe is the version of high-performance Mercedes GLC Coupe, which comes to rival the range X4 from BMW. At the level of the body keeps the dimensions and shapes of the model from which it is derived, but receives an aesthetic much more aggressive and dynamic comparable to that of its “twin brother”, the GLC 43 4Matic. And as we have spoken of rivals, the greatest enemy of this GLC 43 4Matic Coupe is the BMW X4 M40i of 360 horses.
In the body of this SUV attention is called to the great number of chrome details, that combine with the brilliant black color of the body that we see in the images. These applique chrome appear in the wide front grille is diamond-effect, as seen previously in other models signed by AMG or the lower lip of the front.
The SUV coupe a high-performance, incorporates a wheels 19” and design of five-spoke double color duotones with gloss black and polished aluminum that will attract the focus of our view when you look sideways. In the rear we will meet again with the chrome finishes in a few lines on the pilot lights on the diffuser black and the four exhaust outlets also in chrome.
One of the positive points of this type of cars, you don’t need to give up the interior space and the low load capacity if we want a car for performance more than palatable. Not by having a silhouette with a soft landing loses all of its comfort, and that is the mark of the star says that the height of access to and space for the shoulders is identical to that in the GLC “to dry”. In addition, this AMG GLC 43 Coupe offers a boot capacity of 491 litres, expandable to 1,400 liters if you folded down the rear seats; an operation that can be performed in proportions 40:20:40.
In the dynamic part, the GLC 43 Coupé mounts the well-known motor V6 turbo petrol and 3 litres of cubicaje that eroga 367 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque. The propeller is associated with an automatic gearbox 9G-Tronic (with shorter gearing for the best for this occasion) which distributes all the energy between the four wheels, sending the 31 % to the front axle and 69 % to the rear. This way you can speed up from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and roll to 250 km/h, figures good enough for a todocamino of more than 1,800 kilos. For its part, the average consumption approved is 8.4 liters per 100 kilometers.
on the other hand has a specific chassis and air-adjustable suspension “Air Body Control”. Depending on the driving mode selected by the driver, the system will adapt the settings of the suspension in one form or another. The five driving modes that the driver can select are: Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual.
will Be presented in society the next day 28, during the Paris motor show, and will hit the market in the month of December; although the German brand of the star has not yet released its price.
