6 ADVERTISING FEATURE Australia’s fastest mid-size SUV, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ FOR the first time, MercedesAMG’s powerful eight-cylinder biturbo engine is available in a mid-size SUV, making the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ SUV and 4MATIC+ Coupé models Australia’s fastest mid-size SUV combination with acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. The pair of performance SUVs also feature air spring suspension with adaptive adjustable damping, AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution, a rear-axle limited-slip differential, and a highperformance braking system. Visually linking the GLC 63 S models with the MercedesAMG sports car family is the AMG Panamericana grille, which was previously reserved for AMG GT models. In addition, the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S models offer all the advantages of a MercedesBenz SUV: ample room for passengers and luggage, comprehensive array of safety equipment and superior traction in any road conditions. As the only vehicles in their segment to be powered by an eight-cylinder biturbo engine, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ SUV and Coupé meet the wishes of mid-size performance SUV customers looking for a combination of superior power delivery along with a highly emotive, unmistakable engine sound. “For us, the new GLC 63 715402 6 - Carsmart, Tuesday, July 11, 2017 4MATIC+ is a quite special vehicle. It is no easy job designing an SUV to be highly sporty and dynamic while at the same time offering inherent extreme driving stability,” says Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes- AMG GmbH. “This required us to put our heart and soul, along with our many years of SUV expertise, into the development of this vehicle. The result is an SUV that can be driven with high precision and agility and which, if required, is equally at home on a high-speed lap of the race track.” V8 biturbo engine: a unique offering in the midsize segment In the GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ SUV and Coupé models, the proven AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine outputs 375 kW at 5500-6250rpm with maximum torque of 700 Nm from 1750rpm to 4500rpm. Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h is completed in just 3.8 seconds, while the top speed is 270 km/h (electronically limited). The 4.0-litre eight-cylinder biturbo engine is already used in numerous AMG Performance vehicles. It is also installed in the AMG GT sports car with dry sump lubrication. A feature is that the two turbochargers are positioned not on the outside of the cylinder banks, but inside the cylinder “V”. The main advantages of this design are the compact engine construction, optimal response and low exhaust gas emissions. One mechanic assembles each engine in the engine shop in Affalterbach according to the “one man – one engine” principle. Short shift times, high efficiency: the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed transmission The new GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ models feature the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed transmission, which made its debut in the Mercedes-AMG E 63 4MATIC+. The driver benefits from extremely short shift/response times. Fast multiple downshifts and the double-declutching function make for a highly emotive gearshift experience. AMG Performance 4MATIC+ variable all-wheel drive The intelligent AMG Performance 4MATIC+ allwheel drive system unites the advantages of different drive concepts: the fully variable torque distribution to the front and rear axles ensures optimal traction right up to the physical limit. The driver is also able to rely on high driving stability and handling safety under all conditions, both in the dry and in the wet, or in snow. The transition from rear-wheel to all-wheel drive and vice versa is seamless, because intelligent control is integrated into the overall vehicle system architecture.
