Roland Folger, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes Benz India said, “AMG, three letters that define, exemplify and evoke the racing DNA midst ardent driving performance aficionados around the world. Mercedes-Benz is celebrating 50 years of AMG globally, and AMG has sprinted from 0–50 years in a gasp of breath! In the course of this half century, Mercedes-AMG has further consolidated its position as an extremely successful sports car brand with its genes on a race track. Personally, I feel one of Mercedes-AMG’s key contributions to the world of performance motoring has been the incessant transfer of technology from race-track to series production cars, resulting in developing some of the most emotionally appealing and performance oriented vehicles.
With the launch of the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe, we further cement our strong AMG portfolio in the performance segment.”

To commemorate the international success of Mercedes-AMG, we introduced the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé for India. This SUV Coupe is going to be a key addition to our 43 AMG line and will be instrumental in further popularizing the 43 AMG range to a new customer base. The GLC 43 4MATIC Coupé combines the emotional, timeless elegance of a coupé with the impressive dynamics of a sports car and the versatility of the Mercedes-Benz GLC. The bold but never brash design sets it apart from the masses. We are confident that this brand new product will be well received by our elite Indian customers.”
