The limit of the four-cylinder Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 & 63 SE Performance

Electronically controlled turbo upper body, low-speed high-torque response instant

Both cars are equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine, and the output is larger than the old model

●GLC 43 has a maximum horsepower of 421 horsepower, and GLC 63 has a combined horsepower of 680 horsepower

●Both vehicles are equipped with AMG Ride Control air suspension system and rear axle steering system as standard

GLC, whose original factory code is X254, has launched the high-performance representative models of the car series, GLC 43 and GLC 63 SE Performance. Compared with ordinary models, both of them have a lot of upgrades and changes in appearance. The front of the car includes a water tank guard with a straight waterfall grille, a large-sized front bumper air intake dam, and diversion air intake holes extending to both sides. It looks very sporty, and the 63 SE Performance There is also an exclusive front bumper aerodynamic kit (chin), creating an extremely crazy face trying to swallow the road.

The difference in appearance between GLC 43 and 63 is not too big. Except for the difference between the rear nameplate and the exhaust pipe, one of the few places that can be easily distinguished is the nameplate on the front fender. The GLC 43 fender nameplate uses the more common word Turbo, but there are more words Electrified below, representing the identity of its electronically controlled turbine; GLC 63 adds an E Performance nameplate under the word Turbo, emphasizing The status of this car's PHEV high-performance gasoline-electric.

There is no significant difference between 63 and 43 in appearance. There is only one more chin on the front of the car, and four tailpipes at the rear to highlight its status.
In addition to the original Turbo, the nameplate on the side of the car has more words Electrified, representing the identity of its electronically controlled turbo.

Four cylinders can output more crazy

In fact, as early as when the W206 C-Class was launched, everyone was skeptical about replacing the 43 and 63 with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but when they saw the amazing performance output, the hesitation was probably only sentimental. Let's go with Sonic! The 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine of the GLC 43 has the latest 48V light oil-electric technology. In addition to the energy-saving effect of the previous 48V, the 48V electric motor has also become the existence of driving the electronically controlled turbine blades, so it can make this vehicle The car no longer relies solely on the exhaust gas from the engine to accumulate pressure. It can directly push the turbine blades at low speeds to generate powerful torque output, completely get rid of the problem of turbo lag, and easily squeeze out 421 horses/51 kg meters, 0~100km The /h acceleration can be completed in only 4.8 seconds, and the electronic top speed is 250km/h.

The appearance of GLC 43 is quite fierce, after all, its performance is also very arrogant. The 2.0-liter has a maximum horsepower of 421 horsepower.

As for the GLC 63 SE Performance, the power system has abandoned the proud 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine of the old model, and replaced it with the same M139 configuration, but the 2.0-liter engine body has squeezed out a maximum horsepower output of 476 horsepower. The reason why the auxiliary car is called E Performance, the biggest key is of course the EDU electronic drive unit installed on the rear axle, and the 400V high-voltage lithium battery pack exclusively developed by AMG for it, with a battery capacity of 6.1 degrees, which can provide an additional 204 The maximum horsepower output, and under the framework of the P3 gasoline-electric hybrid, not only can the body weight be distributed more evenly, but the maximum synergy horsepower has reached the terrifying level of 680 horsepower in one fell swoop, and the maximum synergy torque is even more direct. Breaking through the 100 mark, it is close to the performance of 104 kilograms of meters, and with the help of the nine-speed manual transmission and four-wheel drive system, it can complete zero-hundred acceleration in 3.5 seconds, and the electronic top speed is set at 275km/h.

The GLC 63 can complete zero-to-hundred acceleration in 3.5 seconds, and its strength should not be underestimated. The 43 has the ability of 4.8 seconds.

With strong power, the chassis must be correspondingly strengthened. These two AMG latest performance SUVs not only come standard with AMG Ride Control air suspension system, AMG Performance 4Matic four-wheel drive system, but also turn the rear axle for the first time. The system is included, and the maximum steering angle is 2.5 degrees, which enhances the flexibility of the curve and the stability of the vehicle at high speed. In addition, the GLC 63 is also equipped with an active roll stabilization system, which actively adjusts the action of the anti-roll bar through electronic control, which can not only improve driving comfort, but also further enhance the handling performance.

In terms of tire size, the GLC 43 uses 20-inch AMG multi-spoke aluminum rims, and the GLC 43 is upgraded to 21-inch front and rear specifications, and the rim shape is also different, and the front calipers are upgraded to golden AMG six-pistons. Upscaling the size of the four-wheel rotors ensures that this ferocious four-cylinder performance beast also has plenty of braking power. The interior part of these two cars continues the consistent style of AMG. A large number of suede and carbon fiber elements decorate the whole car, including AMG's suede-covered flat-handle steering wheel, and sports car seats are of course standard equipment.

The 20-inch aluminum ring is quite handsome, but the brakes do not seem to be upgraded to AMG parts.
The 21-inch bead set with six-piston AMG calipers is more handsome, and the braking power is naturally improved by leaps and bounds.
A large amount of carbon fiber and suede cover the cockpit, creating a very combat-like cabin layout.
