How else do they compare?
Right off the bat you’ll notice that the GLC 300 and AMG® GLC 43 are pretty different in price. The GLC 300 is a better choice for drivers on a budget due to having an MSRP that is $16,300 less than the AMG® GLC 43. However, by opting for the AMG® GLC 43, you’ll get better performance with a more powerful engine and a quicker 0 to 60 time. Besides that, the AMG® GLC 43 also has some advantages such as a NANOSLIDE® cylinder wall technology, AMG® Sport Suspension based on AIR BODY CONTROL®, and standard all-wheel drive just to name a few. The GLC 300 can also be equipped with all-wheel drive, but that is optional.
When you step inside, you’ll see a few other differences beyond just performance. One of the advantages for the AMG® GLC 43 is that it has KEYLESS-GO® as a standard feature, meaning you can unlock, start, and drive away in the GLC without removing the SmartKey from your pocket. Again, this feature is optional in the GLC 300. Seating is different between the two with the AMG® GLC 43 offering the higher-quality MB-Tex/DINAMICA® upholstery.
Both GLC models have their own set of advantages, so be sure to come check them out for yourself to see which is a better fit for you!
