New Delhi, July 21: Mercedes-Benz has unwrapped the GLC SUV models in the GLC 63 S version and the AMG GLC 43 version. Globally, the AMG versions do away with the V6 and V8 in favor of a very performance-focused four-cylinder hybrid powertrain.
The new Mercedes-Benz GLC 43 offers an average peak power of 310 kW and a peak torque of 500 Nm, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds. The GLC 63 S, on the other hand, delivers a whopping 500kW of power and 1020Nm of torque to do the same sprint in just 3.5 seconds. Kia Seltos facelift launched in India. Check out pricing, features, and other important details.
Both the GLC 43 and GLC 63 S share an AMG mild-hybrid drivetrain, with a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder petrol engine paired with a 48-volt electric motor adding an additional 10kW and 150Nm, powered by a 6.1kWh battery and mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
However, the GLC 63 S has a plug-in hybrid system with a 150kW electric motor and a two-speed transmission on the rear axle, combined with an even larger turbocharger to deliver some notable figures.
