If such a versatile and dynamic as the Mercedes GLC AMG vehicle we add the finish and &# 039; Supermotor&# 039; six-cylinder and 367 hp will have one of the most powerful compact SUV market.

So fashionable among SUV there is an elite that has little or nothing to do with the rest. These some wonders automotive engineering as BMW X4 M40i are located, the Porsche Macan or which stars in the test: the Mercedes-AMG 4Matic GLC 43.

If this car impresses you out, it will do more inside. Almost perfect finishes and the latest materials are combined in the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4Matic to provide an inner three in one: cozy, sporty and luxurious.

The steering wheel, flattened at the bottom, and you indicated that this sporty SUV It is a different Mercedes GLC; more provocative. In addition, the seats offer better lateral support than in the rest of the range and red stitching give it a sporty touch I was talking about. And if you want to customize this interior even more, you have many options to do so.

The passage will notice they are aboard an SUV ... special. The suspension is firm, with a clear trend to hardness, but selections in its AMG Dynamic Select Comfort mode. Driving on a country road of those we have in Spain full of broken and forgotten by the Ministry of Public Works may be, say, something delicate for those on board. It is not his forte.

Nor is the extent of space in the rear seats, where only two adults will travel aboard this comfortable Sporty Mercedes GLC. One more is unnecessarily complicate the transfer. At least, the seats can be folded down also from the trunk and lower the rear air suspension to load the trunk of a more convenient way.

Yes, everyone will love the clang of the block V6 GLC 43 I test. Intoxicates from the same power. I still think that a mechanical six-cylinder V is a real highlight a four-wheeled vehicle can carry under the hood. It brings balance, power, speed of reaction, reliability ... and the GLC's topped with a double turbo causing an immediate reaction of a linear accelerator with rev counter and forceful rise. Just over five seconds to go from 0 to 100 km / h, trust me ... impressive. Especially if we are talking about almost two tons moving with the agility.

Do you lose traction in this brutal process? Nothing. With greater transmission power to the rear wheels, it achieves neither of the two axes complain against a good pisotón throttle from standstill.  Their behavior is also book rapid changes of direction, thanks to the hard suspension decisively and firmly holds your body. Therefore, a good winding road asphalt is his favorite ground.

The hiperdirecta direction, with just over two laps of wheel, inscribes GLC 43 4Matic in the path as few SUV can do so, and only Macan could overcome it, something very difficult.

Another mechanical element that I found your ideal mate almost 3,000 cc engine is its automatic gearbox double clutch 9G-Tronic. In this version, the electronic offers a faster response. But also its manual mode holds the gear selected, without changing to a superior, even if the engine reaches its ignition cut (past 6,000 rpm). And the icing: these addictive beats gas, mimicking a spike-heeled, reducing gears. It is also true that, and thank goodness it's just sometimes this change seems to be overtaken having to manage many relationships.

Lesser Evils to be healed when you choose the Sport mode (Sport + leaves for circuits) and see how the GLC crouches a little and, as Usain Bolt prepares to shot out the slightest hint accelerator and as if it had a direct connection to your brain.
