Default Rumour: Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 to launch in India in July 2017

Mercedes-Benz is reportedly preparing to launch the AMG GLC 43 in India by the end of next month, i.e. July 2017. This new variant will join the GLC line-up in India, which currently includes the GLC 300 petrol and the GLC 220d diesel.

The Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 will be a performance-oriented version of the GLC SUV. It will be powered by a 3.0-litre bi-turbo V6 engine that will be rated at 357 BHP and 521 Nm of torque. Transmission duties will be handled by an improved version of the 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic gearbox. It will come with an all-wheel drive system and air body control as standard. Mercedes claims that the AMG GLC 43 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, while its top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h.

The SUV will also get some AMG-specific design elements to differentiate it from the regular GLC variants. These cosmetic add-ons include new grille, larger air intakes on the front bumper, 19-inch AMG alloys, an all-black interior option with red stitching and an AMG-spec flat bottom steering wheel.

Ive seen multiple news reports regarding the GLC coupes launch but not one stating an estimated price. I hope its launched under 60-65 as that could really sell.

However i think MB will put it post the 70 lakh mark

This is a cracker of an engine, I drove the C43AMG back to back with my RS5 and yet found the C43 fun to drive. Sure, it doesn't have the raw power of the RS5 v8 nor is it was quick. However, the turbo torque surge and RWD setup make it fun to drive. Fish tailing galore!!
I doubt the bulky body of a SUV might not leave the engine to be as fun.
I wish they launched a regular GLC43 instead of a coupe version. The GLE is already there as a coupe option in their portfolio.
