2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled the AMG version of the GLC crossover - the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43, which is going to debut next week at the New York Auto Show. The "dynamic addition" to the GLC lineup has a nice 362-hp under the hood, a more aggressive body kit and other performance upgrades.

The GLC43 is powered by a 3.0L biturbo V6 engine with 362-hp and 384 lb-ft. of torque that is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. That's enough power to accelerate the GLC43 from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph electronically-limited top speed. The AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive has a rear-biased torque distribution of 31 to 69 percent and the sport suspension has five settings.

On the outside the GLC43 gets a diamond radiator grille and a silver chrome front splitter. It also rides on unique 20-inch wheels and the silver-colored "BITURBO 4MATIC" lettering on the front fenders lets you know that this isn't just a regular GLC. The rear gets a sportier exhaust system with four tailpipes and a unique bumper. Inside the changes are smaller with a sportier steering wheel, sport seats and an AMG instrument cluster.
