AMG GLC43 is the latest curvy coupeover from Mercedes-Benz

Manufacturers are just mad for coupe-like crossovers, so we'd better get used to them.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

The rear end of the AMG GLC43 coupe swoops sharply down into a rear spoiler. Sure, it looks cool, but it does cut into head room and cargo capacity.

The AMG GLC43 gets a 3.0-liter V6, putting out 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. It'll hit 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, but its top speed is electronically limited to 130 mph.

The AMG GLC43 coupe gets Mercedes-Benz's air suspension. Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus modes make for a customizable ride.

The AMG GLC43 coupe can even be raised up about an inch for any light off-roading you may get into.

A 7-inch infotainment system is standard, but that can be bumped up to an 8.4-inch screen, and you can add options like Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity and navigation.
