The Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupe facelift has been launched in India at Rs 76.70 lakh ( ex-showroom, India). It is the first AMG model to be produced locally in the Pune manufacturing facility of Mercedes-Benz. With the addition of the AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé, Mercedes-Benz now locally manufactures 11 models in India. Mercedes-Benz India’s production facility in Pune has an installed capacity of 20,000 units annually, the largest for any luxury carmaker in India.
AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé combines the elegance of a coupé with dynamics of a sports car and versatility of the Mercedes-Benz GLC.
The 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine now produces 390 hp (287 kW), 23 hp (17 kW) more than the previous model. Power is transferred to all four wheels through a 9-speed automatic gearbox and an AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system with a rear-biased setup — 69 percent of the GLC 43’s total output is sent to the rear. It comes with a choice of five drive programs: Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual.
The AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé is equipped with Mercedes me connect that offers multiple convenient connect features like remote lock/unlock, car locator, speed monitor, emergency e-Call which are accessible from the customer’s smartphone/tablet. A dual-screen setup, with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch MBUX touchscreen infotainment system, along with a Burmester audio system, are standard fit.
“Rolling out the first-ever locally manufactured AMG from India’s largest installed luxury car production facility is an important achievement for us. This reiterates our strong commitment to the Indian market and our continuous effort towards creating value for our customers. We are confident that the local production of the AMG will further increase the popularity of the performance brand in India and cater to the increasing demand for performance motoring enthusiasts. The local production of AMG gives us a competitive edge in the dynamic Indian luxury car market.”
