Mercedes-AMG has expanded its lineup with the introduction of the GLC 63 Coupe, its first-ever hybrid SUV Coupe. This move comes in response to criticism that the brand’s offerings cater to a limited demographic. The GLC 63 Coupe is designed for customers seeking a sporty lifestyle, dynamic design, and impressive performance.
The GLC 63 Coupe is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine, which delivers 470bhp, making it the most powerful production four-pot engine in the world. It is also fitted with an electric motor on the rear axle and a high-performance 6.1kWh battery, resulting in a total system output of 671bhp. This hybrid powertrain enables the SUV Coupe to accelerate from 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 170mph. The GLC 63 Coupe can also travel about 7.5 miles in electric-only mode.
In terms of performance features, both the GLC 43 and GLC 63 Coupe models come with a nine-speed AMG ‘Speedshift’ auto ‘box and a range of chassis aids to enhance their driving dynamics. These include ride control with steel springs and adaptive dampers, active roll stabilization, three-stage speed-sensitive steering, rear-axle steering, AMG brakes, and an AMG exhaust.
On the design front, the GLC 63 Coupe features a new front apron, wheel arch trims, side skirts, and large wheels. The interior boasts premium leather upholstery, Mercedes’ ‘MBUX’ infotainment system, and a ‘Track Pace’ data logger for those who desire to track their performance.
The GLC 63 Coupe will be available in an ‘Edition 1’ variant, which includes special paintwork and exclusive features for the alloys, calipers, and interior trimmings.
