Naijauto.com has been really impressed so far with the way the German automaker, Mercedes has been storming the global auto market with new vehicles, upgrades and version updates since the beginning of this year 2019.
If you recall, you might remember that the Mercedes-AMG division featured a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine in its GLC compact SUV in the past 2 years, and has since then been making steady design changes/updates to this SUV line.
Similarly, this year at the Geneva Motor Show last month, the standard GLC was revealed with aesthetic tweaks which shows an entire AMG-touch on the GLC lineup. Also, there is now a new “Slippery Driving mode” among the 5 or 6 options made available, a new AMG sports steering wheel, a standard electronic limited-slip centre differential, and the displayed MBUX infotainment signs together with the MBUX interior Assistant feature.
The Mercedes GLC 63 gets some really exciting updates
Mercedes-AMG obviously wants to shout out the GLC 63 S Coupe which is now the hottest in its range as it lapped the Nürburgring in just 7.49.369 minutes. This obviously makes the 4-door clambake to now be the fastest SUV currently on the ‘Ring as it crossed the finish line in a 2.4 seconds time ahead of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio SUV.
This feat actually succeeded without any changes been made to the engine. The regular Mercedes GLC 63 holds an output of 469 hp and a 497 lb-ft of torque while the GLC 63 S Coupe still gets a 503 horsepower and 516-pound-foot of torque. Both of these variants, however, feature the AMG’s MCT nine-speed transmission that uses a wet sort of start-off clutch to replace its torque converter.

Some noticeable cosmetic changes that join the LSD include an all-new metallic Gray Graphite exterior paint and also optional 21-inch wheels. On the inside, there is a choice of an all-new Magma Grey upholstery that comes with Black Nappa leather as well as yellow contrasting topstitching that goes well with the vehicle’s flat-bottomed steering wheel.
The interior of the Mercedes GLC 63 is not so lacking in modern technology features
This wheel fits well in the AMG Drive Unit as it can be wrapped in several materials especially on the S model of the vehicle.
