Higher boost, less friction and myriad fortifications of the GLC 43 biturbo V6 add up to 385 hp and 0-60 in 4.7 seconds. A handcrafted biturbo V8 in the GLC 63 unleashes 469 hp and a 0-60 rush of just 3.8 seconds.
A paddle-shifted AMG SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed keeps you in charge of the GLC 43's 384 lb-ft of torque. In the GLC 63, the multiclutch AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed is masterful at delivering its 479 lb-ft. Both offer multiple modes and can downshift multiple gears.
The GLC 63's electronically controlled limited slip differential precisely apportions power to each rear wheel. Cornering is more reassuring, more rewarding, and potentially more rapid as well.
AMG Performance 4MATIC turns the GLC 43's torque into traction and agility, with a 31:69 rear bias. In the GLC 63, AMG Performance 4MATIC can fully vary the front-to-rear torque split. Translation: gripping control, and up to 100% rear-wheel drive.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you alter the shifting, throttle, steering, damping and more via a console paddle. Modes range from Slippery to Sport+, along with an Individual mode you can customize. The available AMG DRIVE UNIT puts the controls right on the steering wheel.
AMG brakes apply its racing know-how. Sizable perforated front discs feature 4-piston front calipers on the GLC 43. Even beefier 6-piston front calipers with compound discs help rein in the GLC 63.
The GLC 63's AMG Performance Exhaust (also a GLC 43 option) features internal flaps and multiple modes. You can unleash a torque-rich rumble at the touch of a button. Or bring it to a mellow growl to keep your neighbors happy.
The AMG Sport Suspension takes AIR BODY CONTROL to new heights of handling with a wider stance, more rigid components, and multimode adaptive damping via AMG DYNAMIC SELECT.
Legendary for quality and style, AMG® wheels are available in four designs for each AMG GLC SUV. Both models feature standard 20-inch wheels. Options include black finishes and 21-inch sizes.
AMG muscle further tones the GLC's physique. Each model underscores its vertical-bar AMG grille with distinctive lower bodywork. Styling options include accents in gloss black or carbon fiber, plus a GLC 63-exclusive Aerodynamics Package. AMG Carbon Fiber Package pictured above.
The sporty, aggressively sculpted front air dam and rear valance are highlighted by chrome-plated underguards. Substantial AMG® wheels celebrate the GLC's confident stance.
Sleek and purposeful, the low-profile roof rails accommodate a variety of available accessory attachments for carrying bikes, surfboards, skis, snowboards and cargo carriers. They feature a durable anodized silver-shadow finish that adds modern style even when you're not using them.
Available AMG digital instruments, an AMG Performance steering wheel, and sport seats support your every move. Available AMG Track Pace can record performance on the central touchscreen.
The AMG Performance steering wheel includes Touch Control Buttons, and a flat-bottom design in a choice of materials. You can add the AMG DRIVE UNIT controls to any of them.
Substantially bolstered sport front seats feature exclusive contouring, intuitive seat-shaped controls on the door, plus a 4-way power lumbar support. To set and save your ideal driving position, a memory system for each front seat recalls three stored positions for the seat, plus the positions of the 4-way power steering column and side mirrors for the driver. Both front seats also feature adjustable thigh support.
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 0.0002-inch from entering the cabin. 3-zone climate control is available.
To make riding in the GLC even more serene, the front door windows can be laminated with an acoustic membrane that further keeps external noise from entering the cabin.
A network of LEDs can create not just a soothing ambience in the cabin, but one you can alter to suit your mood, or even create one. The 64 selectable colors and adjustable brightness let you control the atmosphere like never before. Edge-lighting glows from around the console and numerous cabin areas, while the front door sills welcome you with AMG logos backlit in soft white.
A widescreen color display with multitouch interface makes it easy to access a world of features, including audio, MB Navigation, phone and vehicle settings. In addition to the three input methods of the standard screen (touchscreen, console touchpad, and Touch Control steering wheel), it also responds to the advanced voice control you activate by saying "Hey, Mercedes." Predictive features can learn and anticipate your commands, while you can save groups of settings as themes and moods.
A vivid 12.3-inch screen directly in front of the driver offers customizable analog-style and digital displays for instrumentation and exclusive AMG readouts. The panel also integrates a large multifunction menu screen with illustrated and animated menus for vehicle information, settings and driver-assistance features. Several instrumentation styles can be selected, featuring a variety of AMG-specific analog-style, digital and graphical readouts.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
With longer life, quicker illumination and beams that approximate daylight even more closely than xenon headlamps, the multi-element LED headlamps enhance both vision and visibility in nighttime driving. Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps and all other front light functions are integrated within the flowing sculpture of the headlamp assemblies, making the design as appealing as it is illuminating. Wide, horizontal taillamps feature an all-LED design with a three-dimensional design.
The Surround View System uses cameras in all four directions to compose a single, live overhead view of your immediate surroundings. Displayed on the in-dash screen during low-speed maneuvers, it can help you avoid obstacles as you negotiate tight spaces, whether you're moving forward or backing up. A special mode zooms in to help you line up your GLC and a trailer to attach it to the available hitch.
When traveling above approximately 20 mph, radar technology can help sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area. Blind Spot Assist can then alert the driver via an illuminated red icon in the appropriate side mirror. An audible warning sounds if the driver activates a turn signal while a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. After parking, Exit Warning Assist can alert the driver or passengers to vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians that could be at risk if the door is opened.
Greater use of aluminum helps the body shell of the GLC elevate its overall rigidity, occupant protection and acoustic qualities while reducing weight, even with a significant increase in cabin space. Along with high-strength and ultrahigh-strength steel, numerous components and strategic reinforcements are made of diecast, extruded and stamped aluminum, as well as heat-treated steel and laser-welded, "tailored" sheet steel that's created with predetermined, varying thicknesses.
An advanced system of 7 air bags offers 9-way occupant protection. Dual two-stage front air bags, combined thorax/pelvic bags for driver and front passenger, a driver's knee air bag, and side curtain air bags for both seating rows are standard.
Radar-based technology alerts you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, the system can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, the system can also initiate braking automatically from speeds up to 65 mph, and can activate the features of PRE-SAFE®.
4MATIC all-wheel drive incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and responds to ensure torque is sent to the wheels with the best grip, even if that's only one wheel.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
