Mercedes-AMG disrupts status quo with sportscar-challenging GLC63 S mid-size SUV
1 Jun 2018
WHETHER we like it or not, the high-performance game is moving on. Reflecting a wider trend, buyers are flocking to hi-po SUVs over hi-po passenger cars in increasing numbers, which means the term ‘sportscar’ has begun to take on new meaning.
One such example is Mercedes-AMG’s GLC63 S wagon and coupe, which are a pair of mid-size SUVs hell bent on disrupting the status quo – so much so that they might even be better than their passenger-car counterparts.
Of course, such talk is ludicrous because high-riding soft-roaders cannot possibly hang in there with sleek coupes and sedans – or can they? Have we finally reached the point where the distinction between SUVs and passenger cars has become unnecessary?
To put this theory to test, we signed up for the unenviable task of putting the GLC63 S twins through their paces. Spoiler alert: They’re bonkers, truly bonkers – and we loved every minute of it.
