Mercedes-AMG is introducing a Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé that offers unique combination of agility, elegance and everyday practicality, which is likely to compete with BMW X4. By Staff Writer
The GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé also enables occasional off-road excursions to be undertaken: the ground clearance can be increased at the touch of a button, and the pneumatic all-round self-levelling ensures a constant vehicle level at all times.
“The new GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé is characterised by a high level of agility and sporty driving dynamics. With its expressive design and high everyday practicality the Coupé is able to appeal to new target audiences”, said Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes‑AMG.
Comprehensive: infotainment features
The standard infotainment equipment in the GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé includes the Audio 20 CD with 7-inch (17.8 cm) display, Frontbass, Bluetooth® hands-free function, audio streaming and two USB ports. The optional Garmin® MAP PILOT with Live Traffic expands Audio 20 CD into a fully-fledged navigation system with traffic jam avoidance integrated into the onboard electrical system. The navigation software and map data are supplied on an SD card.
When COMAND Online is installed, the colour media display features a screen diagonal measuring 8.4 inches (21.3 cm) and has an even higher resolution. It also allows optional digital TV/radio reception, for example, and offers a host of other features including fast hard-disc navigation, automatic tailback avoidance via up-to-date and accurate Live Traffic Information, integrated WLAN hotspot functionality and the LINGUATRONIC voice-operated control system.
Musical enjoyment at concert hall level is possible with the optional Burmester® surround sound system. This has a 9-channel DSP amplifier, 13 speakers and a system output of 590 watts.
Personal assistant: Mercedes me connect
Also available in the GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé is Mercedes me connect.
In addition to the standard functions such as Mercedes-Benz emergency call, Accident Recovery, breakdown assistance or after-sales service, Remote Online (standard with COMAND Online) offers numerous convenience features via the Mercedes me app or the Mercedes me portal, for example control of the auxiliary heating, locking and unlocking of the vehicle or the retrieval of various items of information, such as odometer reading, fuel level or range.
The new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé will celebrate its world premiere on 28 September 2016 as part of the Paris Motor Show. The sales release follows on 6 October 2016, with the market launch beginning in December 2016.
