The SUV comes standard with all-wheel-drive as the '4Matic' and features AMG Dynamic Select system with five drive modes --Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual.
From a visual stand point, the sloping roof of the GLC 43 Coupe adds a distinctive look from its standard SUV and gets diamond radiator grille with chrome pins, sporty air intakes and a chrome front splitter. The sportily distinctive air intakes in the AMG front apron feature fins in silver chrome. It rides on 19-inch alloy wheels while it gets 21-inch alloys as optional. At the back, carbon fibre lip spoiler and quad silver-lined exhaust. The AMG-specific rear apron sports trim in silver chrome.
It features an all-black interior with plenty of carbon fibre and houses 7.0-inch infotainment with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, multifunction flat-bottomed steering wheel and black upholstery with contrast red stitching.
