What Car? says...

What’s the point of an SUV? If the marketing teams of numerous manufacturers are to be believed, they offer a commanding view of the road and plenty of space for friends, family and all their lifestyle accessories. The Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 Coupé takes the regular Mercedes GLC and gives it the swoopy looks of the coupé variant then adds one more thing to that list: neck-snapping acceleration.

You see, on our private test track a GLC 63 S clocked the fastest 0-60mph and 0-100mph times of any SUV we’ve ever tested. For all you Top Trumps fans, the numbers are 3.6sec and 9.0sec – figures that put it well ahead of the slices of Italian exotica that adorned teenagers’ walls throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
