A four-cylinder engine and a hybrid system are responsible for that power figure.
Mercedes-AMG has continued to transform and redefine automotive performance through hybridization, and with the release of its revamped AMG GLC Coupe, that transformation reaches the SUV coupe segment for the first time. The midsize series vehicle features state-of-the-art technologies and all the luxurious trappings we’ve come to expect from the German automaker. Two variants, the GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE Coupe and the GLC 43 Coupe, lead the lineup, boasting unparalleled performance and next-gen hybrid technology.
The GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE Coupe is the star of the show, the first-ever performance hybrid SUV coupe from Mercedes-AMG. Under the hood, you’ll find an awe-inspiring 671 hp system output, powered by a hand-built M139l AMG 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Not only is it the world’s first and only series-production engine with an electric exhaust gas turbocharger, but it also combines with a hybrid system to achieve that soaring power figure with as much as 201 horsepower of electric power.
With a dedicated focus on performance, the electric motor is mounted on the rear axle of the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE Coupe, which allows it to contribute directly to impressive acceleration and off-the-line power. What that means is that 671 horsepower becomes more than just a number, translating to exhilarating driving and thrilling performance. In addition, the hybrid system offers high recuperation efficiency, ensuring maximum propulsion whenever you need it. The proof: The GLC 63 S E PERFORMANCE Coupe takes you from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering 3.4 seconds, capping off at an electronically limited 171 mph top speed.
On the aesthetics front, the GLC Coupe’s design is a symphony of dynamic elegance and signature AMG features. The AMG front fascia, large air inlets, and vertical fins all exude a commanding presence. The sporty silhouette, the precise side edges, and the powerful wheel arches underscore its athletic stance. Moreover, the two-piece taillights add an extra dimension to its design, making it visually captivating from all angles. The new Mercedes-AMG GLC Coupe is more than just a head-turner it’s a game-changer when it comes to combining and luxury, performance, and style in the same vehicle. Whether you’re intrigued by its groundbreaking E PERFORMANCE hybrid tech or captivated by its sporty design, this coupe offers the best of both worlds.
