The three most powerful letters of the alphabet have made their way onto the back of Mercedes-Benz’s most award-winning crossover, the GLC-Class. The all-new 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43 stares the Audi SQ5 square in the face. It’s on like grey poupon, filet mignon, and donkey kong. In terms of speedy crossovers, few do it as well as Audi. Somehow they’ve always been able to master the art of putting power to the ground, thanks to their advanced Quattro all-wheel drive system. This year, Mercedes-Benz took a crack at it. With a 362-horsepower twin turbo V6 engine and proven 4MATIC rear-wheel biased four wheel drive, the GLC43 AMG gives the long-reigning Audi some stiff competition. Also in the AMG’s line of fire are the Porsche Macan S and Jaguar F-Pace S, which are available for comparison and purchase at our dealership.
AMG has enhanced the driving dynamics of the GLC to make it feel more car-like to drive while retaining the seating position and practicality crossover utility customers want. This thing is an absolute blast to drive and look at. The first one arrived in Kansas City via transport truck last week and is being prepared for its new owner. Will that owner be you?
