Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off the GLC43 AMG. As the name suggests, it is a high performance version of the German automaker’s crossover and will be showcased at the 2016 New York Auto Show.

Externally, the GLC43 AMG gets the diamond avantgarde grille, AMG body kit, two-tone paint job and of course the large and sporty AMG wheels. One of the noticeable elements are quad chrome tipped exhausts fitted on either side of the rear of the car. The cabin is mostly standard GLC stuff but also includes a different steering wheel, sports seats and AMG spec instrument cluster.

The excitement that the GLC provides comes courtesy of a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 that produces 362bhp and 520Nm of torque. This engine has been mated to a 9G-tronic AT and a rear-biased 4MATIC AWD system. This combination has given it a 0-100kmph time of 4.8 seconds and a top-speed of 250kmph. There is also a sports suspension and AMG dynamic select which basically controls the response of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering.

It will make its debut in the US market later this year before being launched elsewhere. Expect an India launch for this high performance crossover in early 2017.
