Mercedes-AMG has unveiled the new-generation coupé variants of the GLC 43 4Matic and the latter’s more powerful sibling, the GLC 63 S E Performance.

“With the new Mercedes-AMG GLC Coupé, we are addressing customers who are looking for a sporty lifestyle and dynamic design coupled with impressive performance,” said Michael Schiebe, CEO Mercedes-AMG GmbH and head of business units Mercedes-Benz G-Class & Mercedes-Maybach.

“The diverse and high-quality technical components guarantee the highest level of driving dynamics and pleasure. With the top model GLC 63 S E Performance Coupé, we now also offer our innovative hybrid drive in this segment, which guarantees an extensive range of driving experience.”

Like their SUV stablemates (and the new C43 4Matic, which we tested earlier this year, and C63 E Performance), the GLC 43 4Matic and GLC 63 E Performance Coupé models employ the Affalterbach-based brand’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine, which, with the 43, is coupled with a 48 V mild-hybrid system, and, in the 63 E Performance, a plug-in hybrid set-up. The 43 4Matic produces 310 kW and 500 Nm of torque for a claimed 0-100 km/h sprint time of 4.8 seconds. The top speed is electronically governed to 250 km/h. AMG claims an average fuel consumption of 9.8 L/100 km.

The 63 E Performance’s PHEV powertrain churns out 500 kW and 1 020 Nm, allowing the sleekly styled performance SUV to reach the three-figure marker from a standstill in 3.5 seconds, before topping out at an electronically limited 275 km/h. The company claims an average fuel consumption of 7.5 L/100 km.
