Mercedes-Benz today launched the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupe in India. This is the eighth launch by the company this year and India's tenth AMG model.
The GLC 43 4MATIC gets its sporty character from the AMG body styling, AMG Diamond radiator grille, silver chrome finished front splitter in the AMG front apron, black ORVM housing, contoured power domes on the bonnet and silver-painted brake callipers with black "AMG" branding on the front ones.
On the inside, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupe features flat-bottomed AMG sports steering wheel in black nappa leather, brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs, AMG floor mats with "AMG" lettering and much more. The AMG instrument cluster has speedometer and rev counter dials in a chequered-flag look. The speedometer in it has a 280 km/h top speed reading.

Other equipment highlights are the COMAND Online infotainment system with an 8.4-inch display, ambient lighting, THERMATIC automatic climate control and 360-degree camera.
