Mercedes-Benz has launched the GLC 43 4MATIC Coupe in the country at Rs 78.4 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The performance-oriented AMG variant of the GLC  has an additional 122PS compared to the standard GLC. Moreover, it comes in the form of a coupe and ditches the conventional boxy shape for a sporty sloping roofline.

Let's get right into the heart of the matter. The long-named Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC packs a 3.0-litre, turbocharged V6 petrol engine which with a gentle tap of the pedal lashes out 367PS of power and 520Nm of torque. Mated to this engine is a 9-speed automatic transmission which sends power to all four wheels. Though an SUV, the AMG GLC 43 can reach 100kmph from standstill in just 4.9 seconds.

The AMG GLC 43 also comes with five driving modes - Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual. Where the first four are self-explanatory, the last one lets you assemble a combination of various elements like steering, engine, transmission and suspension from different models.

Though the power is the centre of attention of this car, Merc has not forgotten its luxurious roots and you get all the bells and whistles which the other GLCs get, plus that added AMG attitude. Outside, the SUV flaunts 19-inch, 5-twin-spoke AMG alloy wheels, an AMG body kit and the diamond radiator grille with chrome pins and ‘AMG’ badge. Get inside the SUV and you will find 'AMG' badging everywhere, remind you to be gentle with the throttle.

The steep price of the SUV is because it is a CBU. At this price, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC rivals the likes of the Porche Macan and the Jaguar F-Pace.
