Car-based SUV are on an unstoppable roll, and automakers are launching one after another. With crosses quickly replace passenger cars in buyers shopping lists, sport utility vehicle they are also increasingly care automakers arms of performance. With the new Mercedes-AMG GLC43, for example, Daimler is following the example of its SQ5 Audi and BMW with its newly launched X4 M40i.
Based on the GLC (compact crossover which recently replaced the GLK), the GLC43 is one of the sports models recently launched AMG, one located below the high-power models of the traditional line of AMG, but significantly above unimproved AMG vehicles. Power comes from a 3.0-liter V-6 Twin turbo-shaking 362 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of torque. This results in serious performance: the sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds, according to Mercedes, and top speed is governed to 155 mph.
To justify its status as AMG, the GLC43 receives additional changes beyond the powerful engine. Speed ??automatic transmission standard nine is scheduled for faster changes, and the exhaust system is set to make big sounds upshifts at full steam. There disks larger brake (14.2 inches front, 12.6 inches in the rear), and the system of the standard all-wheel drive 4MATIC distributes torque with a bias of 69 percent to the rear axle. The chassis has been enhanced with a sport-tuned air suspension with adaptive damping includes the Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus modes version. The AMG also receives a variable ratio steering GLC43, new links together steering and suspension, and fall further negative.
Outside, the GLC43 is equipped with the same rear bumper regular models gracing GLC with the appearance package and AMG front. There is also a divisor of chrome, black mirror housings and 20-inch AMG wheels marked with bright black. interior decoration includes sports seats with red stitching, boring wheel background, and a checkered-flag motif on the dashboard. Mirrors AMG C-Class versions are with the panel and door trim is virtually identical to that of the small sedan Benz.
The Mercedes-AMG GLC43 compete with models mentioned above X4 Audi and BMW, as well as the upcoming Jaguar F-Pace and Porsche Macan S. I hope that Mercedes-AMG GLC43 to launch later this year as model 2017 price in the mid-range $ 50,000.
