The Good

With a singularly impressive rear apron, sporty diffuser fins and an energetic diffuser board, this striking vehicle has dual chrome-plated twin tailpipe trims, unrestricted power, and the distinct sound inherent to the AMG sports exhaust system. The Mercedes AMG GLC 63’s interior features sports-inspired seating, crystal gray seatbelts, and a performance enhancing steering wheel.

The stalk-mounted gear selector, intuitive dials and controls for the infotainment system, and drive mode option selector enhance its interior even further.

The Better

Available options include cross-spoke styling on the 21-inch forged wheels, larger than usual brake discs, high performance composite brakes, and beautiful front splitters and air intakes. Those 21-inch wheels have a twin-spoke design, titanium gray styling, and motorsport inspiration. The vehicle’s sloping roofline adds to its aesthetic appeal and good looks. The AMG GLC is one of the first midsize Mercedes SUVs to sport a solid, dependable, V8 engine in a road warrior vehicle that provides unequaled family-friendly comfort. With the safety of your family in mind, the Mercedes Pre-Safe system is even crafted to brace the driver and passengers in the event of a collision.
