Mercedes Amplify The GLC Coupe & SUV With AMG Power

Mercedes , BMW X3, Audi Q5, Jaguar F-Pace, they’re all luxury, mid-sized SUVs. But what makes them different? They all offer 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, and all but the Q5 offer 6-cylinder diesel variants too. In fact, all four of the above rivals boast a 3.0-litre 6-cylinder petrol engine with between 354-380 hp. Sure, that’s quick, but there’s nothing quicker?

Ok, there wasn’t a quicker option, but Mercedes has just made a grand entrance with the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 4MATIC+ and Mercedes-AMG 63 S 4MATIC+, hereby referred to as the 63 and 63 S. Some may argue that the engine may be out of place, but the 4.0-litre handbuilt V8 certainly deserves some respect.

It lays its power down to the wheels through a 9-speed multi-clutch (not dual-clutch!) gearbox, and talking about power, you have 476 hp and 650 Nm at your disposal. That makes the 63 good for 0-62 mph in 4.0 seconds.

Unless you want to be there in 3.8 seconds, then the 63 S might be a better choice with 510 hp and 700 Nm on tap. Both have an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

Standard kit includes high performance brakes, sports seats finished in Nappa leather, powered front seats and steering wheel and 19-inch alloys finished in titanium grey. The 63 S gains performance seats, an electronic rear axle differential lock and 20-inch alloy wheels.

For a limited time only, and at the buyer’s expense, Mercedes will offer an Edition 1 which brings with it grey mango paint, yellow decals, 21-inch black alloy wheels with yellow rims and performance seats with contrast yellow stitching.

Optional extras include the Premium package comprising of keyless go, a Burmester surround sound system and a panoramic glass sunroof among other things, for the princely sum of £2,595. Ceramic brakes come in at £4,285, while an AMG performance exhaust comes in at £1,000.

This is where the Edition 1 begins to make sense, with all of the above included in its price tag as standard.

Want your 63 to reach 167 mph? That’ll be another £2,755. Or just £765 for your 63 S to reach 174 mph, probably because Mercedes already feels bad with the price it charges for the 63 S.

Now, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 (S) 4MATIC+ is on sale now, with deliveries expected in early 2018, but how much to get your hands on one? A lot.
The 63 comes in at £68,920 with the 63 Coupé costing £71,410.

The S model, available on the SUV and Coupé, demands a £6,750 premium. For the Edition 1, you can add over £15,000 to the cost of an S model before options (the Edition 1 is only available on the more expensive S models).
