Highlights: Highlights of the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 4MATIC+

Exceptional position: For the first time a mid-size SUV is available with the powerful eight-cylinder biturbo in two output variants. The basis for this comes courtesy of the AMG 4.0‑litre V8 engine rated at 350 kW (476 hp) or 375 kW (510 hp) in the GLC 63 S and GLC 63 S Coupé variants (fuel consumption combined: 10.7-10.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 244-234 g/km).

Transmission: AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9‑speed sports transmission for extremely short shift and response times.

Drive system: AMG Performance 4MATIC+ variable all-wheel drive. This intelligent system combines the advantages of different drive concepts: the fully variable torque distribution to the front and rear axles ensures optimal traction right up to the physical limit. The driver is also able to rely on high handling stability and a high level of safety under all conditions, in the dry, in the wet or in snow.

Data: Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 4MATIC+ SUV and Coupé (fuel consumption combined: 10.7-10.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 244-234 g/km); Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ SUV and Coupé (fuel consumption combined: 10.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 244 g/km)

AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes: The five AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs of "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport+" and "Individual" allow the driver to extensively influence the characteristics of the GLC 63 4MATIC+.

Suspension: The Performance SUVs feature air spring suspension with adaptive adjustable damping, AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution, a rear-axle limited-slip differential and also a high-performance braking system.

Rear-axle limited-slip differential: For improved traction and driving dynamics, the GLC 63 4MATIC+ comes with a mechanical rear-axle limited-slip differential, while the GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ uses an electronic rear-axle limited-slip differential. Both differentials reduce the slip on the inside wheel when cornering, without control interventions by the brakes. The result: allows the driver to accelerate out of corners earlier thanks to the improved traction.

Expressive front end: As a visual indication of their links with Mercedes-AMG sports cars, the new models sport the AMG Panamericana grille, which was previously reserved for the AMG GT family.

Interior: The interior underscores the leadership ambition of the new mid-size Performance SUVs in terms of driving dynamics. As standard the driver and front passenger are accommodated on sports seats, which combine high lateral support with functional ergonomics with a focus on driving.
