Mercedes-AMG has announced UK prices and specifications for the standard and coupé variants of its updated GLC 63 performance SUV.
Prices start from £74,599 for the entry-level GLC 63 4Matic+, with the cheapest coupé model costing £77,089.
Top-of-the-line 503bhp S models feature red brake calipers, performance seats, performance-oriented bodykit, a multi-function leather steering wheel and 20in wheels. Prices start at £83,665 for the GLC 63 S SUV and £88,345 for the coupé.
The most expensive variant of the new GLC 63 is the S-badged coupé variant with the optional Premium Plus package, which adds a Burmester surround-sound system, keyless ignition and sliding sunroof.
For £4285, S models can be equipped with a high-performance ceramic brake kit, which features bronze six-piston calipers at the front and single-piston floating calipers at the rear.
Mercedes also confirmed that the SUV is capable of 22.2 mpg on the WLTP combined cycle, emitting 278 g/km of CO2, while the S variant manages 22.1 mpg and 283 g/km. The standard coupé offers a slight improvement, consuming 22.6 combined mpg and emitting 275 g/km of CO2.
Unveiled earlier this year at the New York motor show, the GLC 63 is the fastest SUV to have lapped the 12.9-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The performance SUVs have received a series of subtle changes, most of which are focused on the exterior styling and upgrades to the interior.
New features include redesigned LED headlights and tail-lights and new trapezoidal twin tailpipes. Customers can now also specify new 21in alloy wheels and Graphite Grey Magno matt paint.
However, the most significant upgrades are found inside. Included is a revised instrument binnacle and Mercedes' new MBUX operating system with touchscreen, touchpad, voice and (optional) gesture control. There’s also a new AMG steering wheel that features touchpads within its horizontal spokes and offers additional upholstery options.
