NEW Mercedes Benz AMG GLC 43 4Matic: Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive, POV and Review

👋 In todays video we check out the Mercedes Benz AMG GLC 43! This is a sporty SUV on the smaller size, but is also very practical and can even tow! The exterior on this particular Mercedes Benz model has a nice sleek design, all the line flow nicely and the wheel option is a great contrast against this exterior color! The interior has very nice materials from the brushed aluminum accents to the wood grain and the leather seats! All of the red accents on the interior pop as well and look great in this AMG GLC 43! The Mercedes Benz AMG GLC 43 has more of that coupe like design for the exterior, but that doesn’t hinder rear passenger head room or the amount of cargo space available! In fact, this even has hidden and lockable storage underneath which is a great touch to see! So for the size, it would be a great daily driver and you can still retain that sporty feel if you are looking for those handling characteristics in your SUV! The drive in this Mercedes Benz is what you would expect! It is comfortable and quiet and with the different driving modes, you can adjust how you want the suspension, steering and the exhaust depending on how you want to drive! The technology for this Mercedes Benz AMG is great with the amount of info to go through, and even having the 360 camera system and the parallel parking feature! It definitely has a lot to offer and would be a great smaller size SUV with performance and comfort if you are in the market for that style SUV! Definitely check out this Mercedes Benz AMG GLC 43 4matic to take it anywhere!

Inventory to choose from so definitely check them out but the amg that you see behind me is finished off in black and it has a list price right around eight thousand dollars to start off today’s review we’re going to take a look at what powers this glc underneath the hood you’ll find the three liter twin turbo v6 engine this is paired to the nine speed amg speed shift

Transmission and it pumps out 385 horsepower around 6 100 rpm and 384 pound-feet of torque around 2500 rpm this has the 4matic all-wheel drive system it weighs in right around 4 100 pounds it’ll do 0-60 in 4.3 seconds up to its top speed of 155 miles an hour and it has a fuel capacity of 17.4 gallons you’ll expect to see around 18 miles per gallon in the city and 24

Out on the highway this has a wheelbase of 113.1 inches its overall length is 183 and a half it has a width of 74.4 and a height of 64 inches as we move on to the exterior styling now for this amg glc let’s start off front and center with the massive mercedes-benz logo you can see in the grille this is also the forward-facing sensor so it’s nicely incorporated into

The logo itself even though it is a bit oversized it still looks very nice for this front end you can see the rest of the grille matches nicely with the finish plenty of cutouts too to provide maximum cooling to this twin-turbo engine this also has a forward-facing camera nicely integrated just underneath that badge along with all the parking sensors that you can see

Incorporated throughout it for these led headlights you can see they have a really nice design this has led drls and turn signals as well and the drl and turn signal are actually split on both sections of the headlight housing so we have the triple beam design right in the middle and then the turn signal and drl running on the outside just gives it a really clean look

For that housing you can see there’s even more cutouts down in the lower section there’s even functional air inlets and they are pretty large you can see right through that bumper there just to provide even better air flow along with all the cutouts down below to provide cooling to the front engine components and then the hood has some really nice lines coming down

Just to give it a really nice clean design running all the way back to the grill as we move on to the side now this has a set of 20 inch wheels they’re nine inches wide you can see the multi-spoke design along with the two-tone finish this even has the amg brakes you can see those are finished off in a gray color we have the body colored mirrors with the integrated

Turn signal and a camera system i will show that system later on in today’s video this also has the sunroof up top along with the blacked out roof rails you can see all the window trim is blacked out as well the bi-turbo badge is up front really nice addition to the fender flares too all that trim work matches nicely really nice lines running just underneath the

Height of the door handle and then as we finish up in the rear you can see the body colored spoiler along with the integrated third brake light wiper blade is in the lower section gives you plenty of visibility out of that glass this also has a backup camera that’s nicely hidden away when it’s not used and when you put the vehicle into reverse of course that will

Pop up you can see all the parking sensors that are located down below this has led tail lights really nice design to those housings in the lower section you can see the diffusers just to give it more of that sporty appearance especially being the amg model with the quad tip dual exhaust on both sides we’ll start this up in just a little bit so you can hear that

So with the exterior wrapped up let’s move on to the cargo area so you can use the electronic button on the liftgate itself or just push this button on the key fob it will automatically open up and you’ll see there is a ton of space we have this cover here so you can hide any items over on this driver’s side you can see a net along with a little bit of cargo space

It goes outwards just slightly over on this passenger side so plenty of room really nice flat surface this even has a lockable compartment in the floor so if i open this up look at this addition for storage space you can place pretty much anything down here you want there’s a cargo rack right there that you can set up just as a divider so nothing slides around

Really cool to see that that’s lockable and then you can also fold down these back seats using these buttons on the left and the right side all i need to do is pull on this you can see that fold down on the driver’s side i can pull that one down and now we have a really nice flat surface you can put in a lot more items if you need to also over on this side you

Can actually raise and lower the back of this vehicle so if you want that load height to go down when you have a lot of items you can push on that button and i’m not sure if you’ll be able to see the vehicle lowering right now but it makes it much easier for that load height so you can put in items and then with the power liftgate up top you can close and lock

The vehicle the one on the left side will just close it and we can move on to these back seats now and you’ll notice too you can lock and unlock the vehicle from the back doors you’ll see those power mirrors fold out so it’s really convenient to be able to do that on this model here you can see all the black leather in the red stitching along with the brushed

Aluminum this model has the upgraded burmister audio sound system you can see the window control along with the grab handle good amount of storage space down in that lower section too and at 5 foot 10 it’s time to work my way into these back seats where you’ll see we have a combination of black leather and suede along with the red seat belts to match all the red

Stitching definitely really nice to see the door sill is very low so it makes it easy to enter and exit we have that grab handle nicely placed you can see behind both front seats there’s a storage pocket here so you can place any items that you’d like to with the front seat set at my height i have plenty of room for my feet and my legs and i have around three or

Four inches above my head so it’s a very spacious back seat these also have a 40 20 40 split to them so you can fold down this middle seat if you’d like to before we do that we’ll take a look at the storage that you get in this armrest and then there is a cup holder on both sides if you’d like to use those and then just by grabbing this handle on the right side of

The headrest you can fold this seat down so that way you can see into the back if you have any longer items that need to pass through and then from this angle you can see with these back seats down just how much more storage there is to make this a much more practical daily suv to drive you’ll see right in the middle we have two air vents along with the control for

That and in the lower section you can flip this out to where you’ll see a two-prong outlet along with a 12-volt so that way your backseat passengers can charge their electronics if they need to really nice to see that and then as we work our way to the front seats you’ll see the door panels finished off just like the rear one we have the addition of all the memory

Seating adjustments all the controls for the seat along with the heated seat option you can see lock and unlock all the side mirror adjustments and window controls really nice to see all that finished off in brushed aluminum there’s even a release for the liftgate and you can see all the additional storage space down in the lower section amg is also down on the

Door sill and this does illuminate it’s going to be very hard to see during the daytime but that’s a really nice touch and then as we move on to these front bucket seats you can see all the bolstering support the red seat belts definitely gives it a great look you can even adjust the front section of the seat just by using that control on the door panel you can

See me adjust that forwards and backwards just to give you a little bit more comfort and just like the back seat very easy to enter the front seats here it is a pretty low car for an suv so it makes it very easy to enter and exit and then moving on to the steering wheel you can see the perforated and solid black leather we have that red stripe right in the middle

More red stitching flat bottom design with the amg badge and even more brushed aluminum very fancy steering wheel for this sporty suv but let’s fire this up with my foot on the brake we have that button over on the right side and we can bring this to life in looking at this gauge cluster you’ll see over on the left side is the fuel gauge and the miles per hour

On the right side is the attack in the engine temperature and then right in the middle you do have this lcd screen that shows you a lot of information you can see the temperature and the time along with what gear you’re in and then in the lower section you can go through a lot more information using these three buttons over on the left side of the steering wheel

This also has the cruise control settings but with these three buttons we have home we have back and then you can swipe on this dial right in the middle up and down to go through all that information so right now i’m going to push on the home button where you can see the amg performance if i click on that center button now you can look at your g-force meter i can

Swipe up you can look at all the different settings the vehicle is currently in you can also look at your boost along with some other vitals and then if i go back you can swipe over look at your driver assistance you can go into servicing if i go in the other direction you can go into the trip information pull up the navigation you can look at radio and media

And then your phone as well if you have that paired so it’s nice to have all the information front and center and then over on the right side of the steering wheel we have these same three buttons these will control the center screen we’ll come back to that here shortly we have volume for the radio all of the bluetooth and voice commands and this also has these

Steering wheel mounted paddle shifters you can see those are finished off in brushed aluminum just to match in nicely over on this left side the electronic parking brake is located down below if you can see that blue reflection that is because this has the interior ambient lighting very nice to see that we have the headlight controls along with a dimmer switch

You can see one air vent there and then coming back to that center screen this is a touch screen system so you can use that if needed and just swiping on this to go through all this information or you can use those dials again over on the steering wheel here i’m going to be using those for right now you can go through a lot more information go into that ambient

Lighting you have some of the same ones that you saw in the center screen there but it’s nice that you have all this front and center if i go into the amg performance now you can go through your vehicle you can look at your accelerating your braking you can go into the engine look at all this performance you have your consumption and the dynamic select so you can

Go and configure a lot of information you can even see shortcuts to the climate controls there so you can go through all the information of course where you like the air and all of that we can go back to this screen go through a lot more settings so it’s nice that you have all that easily available you can go through towing if you need it turning on your parking

Sensors you have all this information here readily available for you you’ll notice three air vents just underneath that along with this wood trim backing it covers all these controls right in the middle so that is really nice to see we have more physical buttons for the climate controls so you can easily get to all that information if you’re not already on that

Screen we have the fan speed temperature where you like there to go all those dials nicely laid out and there’s a bunch of shortcuts down below so if you quickly want to get to your radio and media you can push on that we also have a car button here going back to all those different settings there’s a favorites button that you can push as well hazards are over on

That right side and then working our way to this compartment here if i open this up you’ll see that this has a keypad down below along with a 12 volt a little bit of storage space right here you could place your phone or other smaller items and then behind that we do have a third way to use this screen so it has a back button the home button same controls that you

Saw on the steering wheel so if i push on home now we have this track pad here i can swipe my finger to go through all this information if i scroll down now you can go to all these different themes that you can set up you have favorites as well if i go all the way back up now we are here so again really convenient a lot of different options there’s also a dynamic

Button here so if i push on that you can go between slippery individual comfort sport and sport plus you’ll see the diagram there change along with the exhaust note 2. we also have the m button so that allows you to use the paddle shifters there’s a few different settings for the suspension you can see comfort along with sport and sport plus we have traction control

Volume and power for the radio the engine start stop feature and then this last button here is for the parallel parking so you can see it’s telling me to look for a parking space right now so that can aid you in doing that this also has a full 3d camera system so right now we’re looking at the forward-facing camera we have a little bit different of a view now we

Have the surround view and then there’s two angles for the rear-facing camera so it’s really nice to see that in order to put this vehicle into reverse you’ll notice that there’s nothing in the center here it is a column mounted shifter so if i push it all the way up that is for reverse we can go down into drive and then pushing the end of the stock is for park

So it’s nice how it’s kind of out of the way there gives it more of a cleaner look right in the middle the center armrest also has a ton of space along with usbs so you can charge electronics place any information in there that you’d like to and then over on the glove box you’ll see it has an ample amount of room for all that info we’ll take one last look at this

Interior very nice spec with all of the red like i mentioned earlier this does have the moon roof it is split between your front seat and your rear seat passengers the adjustments for that and the sunroof are up top you can see we have the dome lights along with a sunglass holder and some call buttons are up there as well so now getting this mercedes-benz amg glc

43 out on the road this has been a really cool sporty size smaller size suv from mercedes-benz and i think it has a lot to offer for the footprint of this vehicle it’s actually very spacious on the interior the fact that you can fold the back seats down too just makes it a little bit more versatile and this can even tow around 3 500 pounds that’s not a lot but

It’s very very adequate for the size and the power plant for this amg model so it’s nice that if you need the practicality of an suv you need to tow smaller trailers and you want that practicality to put people in the back you have a lot of storage and that rear cargo but you also want sports car like performance this is a great model we’re gonna put it into the

Manual setting now pop it into sport plus and i love the fact that we have pops in that exhaust it puts a smile on your face for sure i once say it’s crazy fast it does have a quick 0-60 time which i won’t be testing today but it has plenty of power to get up and move and the exhaust isn’t crazy loud so under just uh cruising right now at a normal speed you can’t

Hear it it disappears there’s not a lot of road noise wind noise either and it handles very well in sport plus when you put it back into comfort mode you can feel the steering get a little bit looser so it’s nice to see that the different settings are actually functional and here we go from second i’m sure you guys can hear the small pops in that exhaust it

Definitely sounds good but as far as just driving this i love this interior as you’ve already seen in today’s video all the materials are super nice i love this screen too it has a lot of different settings if you go into engine you can look at live readouts for your horsepower your torque and some other vitals so with the camera behind me you’ll be able to see

Those which is pretty cool but everything is very nice all the leather we have these seats with these inserts it’s a really nice top-notch interior and obviously that’s what you’d expect from mercedes-benz especially with their amg lineup and so now as we switch over to the pov angle you can see what it’s like to be behind the wheel of this mercedes-benz the

Screen is a really nice size i like it positioned over these three air vents and it’s nice that it has almost a floating design to it so that gives it a cool look we have the brushed aluminum trim that goes all the way over but definitely a nice place to be everything is laid out very nicely and these paddles are super responsive i love that crisp pop in between

The up shifts definitely adds some excitement to this vehicle if you want to tone it down we can go back into comfort mode here we also have these suspension settings we have comfort sport and sport plus just depending on how you want to drive this this is an suv but it can still take some corners almost like a sports car it is a little bit heavier obviously being

An suv but it is small it’s nimble even in comfort mode it can take a normal turn like that very nicely so definitely the place to be if you want to drive this every single day you want those sporty characteristics and then we’ll take a quick look at visibility from this angle so you can see over this shoulder here and then over the left shoulder definitely easy

To see all around but i think that’s going to wrap it up for this walk around review and test drive getting behind the wheel of this mercedes-benz amg glc43 once again huge shout out to carolina autodirect for providing this vehicle for me make sure you guys check out their website that’s down in the description below and give this video a huge thumbs up if you
