2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC

The folks at Mercedes-Benz seems to be going through some confusing times, trying to tidy up their new nomenclature system. Up until recently, their AMG models were given the AMG badge after their cars’ alphanumeric names, for example Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. These high performance cars, however, have been separated out as Mercedes-AMG models, changing the aforementioned car’s name to Mercedes-AMG C 63. Then they started offering AMG Sport models to split the difference between the regular models with their AMG variants, but that was soon dropped in favor of incorporating them into the Mercedes-AMG family.

Confused yet? Well, no need to be confused anymore as Mercedes seems to have figured it all out and are introducing a new line of ’43 AMG’ models that will sit below their full blown ’63’ models. The newest addition is the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC. It’s a sportier version of their GLC compact SUV, with appropriately aggressive looking body kits fitted along with delicious 19-inch alloy wheels. The sporty appearance is backed by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine that produces 362hp and 383 lb-ft, propelling the SUV from 0-60 in a supercar-like 4.8 seconds. Perfectly suited for those of us that have familial responsibilities but don’t want to give up on our spirited weekend driving, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC might just hit the sweet spot for many.

동글동글 귀엽게 생긴 것 같으면서도 구석구석에서 AMG의 손길을 느낄 수 있는 SUV

메르세데스 벤츠가 2016 뉴욕 모터쇼를 위해 메르세데스-AMG 43 GLC 43 4MATIC을 공개하였다. 준준형 SUV 세그먼트의 첫 AMG 모델로서 3.0리터 V6 트윈터보 엔진이 362마력의 힘을 자랑한다. 0-100km/h을 4.9초 만에 주파하고 최고 속도는 250km/h로 제한되어있다. 250km/h가 결코 느린 속도는 아니지만 제한이 걸려있다니 괜히 아쉽다. 동글동글 귀엽게 생긴 것 같으면서도 구석구석에서 AMG의 손길을 느낄 수 있는 메르세데스-AMG 43 GLC 43 4MATIC. 하루빨리 도로에서 달리는 모습을 보고 싶다.
