Mercedes has launched another performance SUV, the GLC C43 AMG Coupe. Based on the Mercedes-Benz GLC, this coupe gets a sloping roof akin to its bigger sibling, the GLE Coupe. It has been launched at a price tag of Rs 74.80 lakhs, ex-showroom India. At this price tag, you have a bunch of petrol SUVs. But then, if you are looking for something else as well, here is what all you can lay your hands on.
Among the Germans, if you want performance, the Audi S5 is on the cards along with the C43 AMG. Being sedans, they sit lower and will give you much better dynamics while saving you some pennies as well. Talking about sedans, there is always the E350 diesel which is almost a limousine in itself.
Speaking of pure performance and panache, you can get yourself a Ford Mustang or a BMW Z4 or a Mercedes SLC. The latter two being convertibles will certainly score over the GLC Coupe in terms of style with the option of open-air motoring as well. But they certainly will not have the ability to hit trails off the beaten path like the GLC possesses. The Porsche 718 also fits in right above the GLC Coupe and if you do not want to spend on the convertible Cayman, the hardtop Boxster will usher you into the world of Porsche handling.
If performance is not the only thing, the Volvo V90 Cross Country will give you something different and will save you at least a million rupees. And if you want an SUV, and an efficient one at that, you have the Volvo XC 90 or the Audi Q7 in the fray.
