The Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe brings some serious hustle to a segment that has a hard time being taken seriously, because a coupe-shaped crossover is an inherently silly thing.
Coupe-shaped crossovers are silly, but even sillier is a performance-oriented coupe-shaped crossover, like this Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe.
The GLC43 Coupe packs a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6.
Its output is pegged at 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, which is nothing to sneeze at.
It'll reach 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and eventually slam into a surprisingly low, electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. Lame.
All-wheel drive is standard, as is a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The GLC43 Coupe sports a number of aesthetic enhancements, so that way, people are forced to acknowledge that you spent more money on the car.
AMG hallmark touches include a sharp spoiler lip, quad tailpipes and a silver chrome front splitter.
Inside, there are red seatbelts, sport seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel that may or may not make the rockin' world go 'round. Wait, no, that's not right...
The Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe will debut at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September.
The car goes on sale in the first quarter of 2017, with pricing yet to be determined.
