Beneath the hood of each GLC43 model is a fire-breathing twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine that yields sports-car performance on demand and is a willing partner for enthusiast drivers. An AMG-tuned nine-speed automatic transmission is the perfect companion for spirited turns behind the wheel.

Mercedes-AMG has made the wise decision not to fuss around under the hood of the GLC43 for 2018. We're pleased, because this twin-turbocharged V-6 is one of our favorites. It sounds wonderful-especially when pushed hard in Sport or Sport+ mode-and acceleration is magnificent.

Since nothing has changed for 2018, we expect the GLC43 and the GLC43 coupe to deliver performance that is similar to last year's models. For details about the engine and transmission of the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43, see our in-depth review.
