The GLC was unveiled by Mercedes in 2015 and branded as the compact SUV equivalent of the C-Class. While there are many variants of the GLC that use different engines and transmissions, including a Hydrogen-powered model, the GLC 63 S is the full-fat, high performance version which boasts a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 - producing a mighty 510bhp, and achieving 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds.
The GLC 63 S can be found in both standard SUV and coupe body styles, with the coupe having a sloped roof and a sleeker design but compromising on headspace in the rear of the interior. The regular SUV body style allows for more cabin space but lacks the sporty and more capable looks of the coupe model. The GLC 63 adopts all of the creature comforts and luxury features that customers have come to expect from the brand, including the all-new AMG Ride Control +, which combines multiple suspension systems to ensure maximum comfort for passengers. It also sports AMG High-performance compound brakes to adequately handle the brutal performance of the GLC 63.
Overall, the GLC 63 S is a surprisingly capable, family friendly German muscle car in its own right. It also doesn’t skimp on luxury, with the interior being laden with high quality leathers, carbon fibre and metals, making each button and dial enjoyable to use. The sheer performance and drama of the engine in the GLC 63 S is truly something to behold and keeps it in line with some of the best cars in its market.
