2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4Matic Launches With 385 HP

Mercedes-AMG has just unveiled the new 2020 GLC 43 4Matic models, available in both standard and Coupe forms and expected to hit the market later this year.

As the 2020 GLC 43 4Matic models are based around the facelifted GLC presented earlier this year, they feature a number of new components differentiating them from the previous GLC 43. The most obvious visual alterations come in the form of overhauled headlights and taillights but all things considered, these new models are really only subtly different than the GLC 43 variants they replace.

Both the new GLC 43 4Matic and GLC 43 AMG 4Matic Coupe use a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine offering up 385 hp and 383 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque. This power is sent to the pavement through a 9-speed automatic transmission and a 4Matic all-wheel drive system, ensuring the duo reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in a brisk 4.7 seconds. Both the standard and Coupe models top out at limited top speeds of 155 mph (250 km/h).

The all-wheel drive system features a front/rear axle torque split of 31 to 69 per cent and those looking to buy the latest AMG model will be pleased to learn that it comes with AMG Ride Control and Air Body Control air suspension systems as standard. The first of these systems adjusts damping at each wheel for the requirements at any given time to improve safety and ride comfort. Drivers have the option of ‘Comfort’, ‘Sport’, and ‘Sport+’ settings for the suspension.

Inside, the 2020 GLC 43 4Matic models come standard with leather sports seats with red topstitching. There are also a number of aluminum trim elements found throughout the cabin. Other highlights include a flat-bottomed steering wheel, galvanized shift paddles, and various steering wheel buttons. Customers also have the option of an AMG steering wheel. Like most new Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG models, the company’s latest MBUX infotainment system comes standard and can be operated through a touchpad, Touch Control buttons on the steering wheel, through voice recognition or via gesture control.

Mercedes-AMG has yet to state when the GLC 43 will arrive in dealerships nor how much it will cost.

    Rear Lamps looks horrendous…. Mercedes will never get closer to Audi interms of Lamp designs… Even BMW is getting better with new models… Jeezz

      They’re not that bad. I like the new graphic with the twin ‘ovals’, it’s a bit more unique than the sharp lines used by Audi and BMW with their OLED set ups.

      So are all your car purchases based on solely the tailight design?

        Eventhough i wont buy Mercedes, i didnt say i would reject a car just only for rear lamp design.. but it plays a major role in overall apperance of the car.
