Carlos Lago tests and reviews the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S AMG Coupe. We weren't sure what to make of this compact luxury SUV until we went to our test track. Once we got to the acceleration strip, we found that the length of this vehicle's name is equally absurd as its straight-line speed. In this video, Carlos explains why the GLC 63 S AMG is so quick, demonstrates what its acceleration looks and feels like, and compares its results to traditional sports cars.

Q: What kind of engine and transmission does the Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S AMG Coupe have?
A: The Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S AMG Coupe has a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that makes 503 horsepower. A nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard.

Q: How much does the Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S AMG Coupe cost?
A: Our 2018 test car starts at $81,745. It has a few options, including carbon-ceramic brakes, 21-inch forged wheels, and a performance exhaust system, that bring the as-tested price to $105,610.

Q: How fast is the Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S AMG Coupe?
A: During testing, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S AMG Coupe reached 60 mph in 3.5 seconds (3.3 seconds with a 1-foot rollout, as on a drag strip) and clocked a quarter-mile time of 11.7 seconds at 115.6 mph.

Q: What are the Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 S AMG Coupe's main competitors?
A: The GLC 63 S AMG is unique in that it is the only compact luxury SUV to offer a V8 engine, and a powerful one at that. The Porsche Macan Turbo comes closest in terms of output, offering up to 440 horsepower from its twin-turbo V6. The BMW X4 has the same sloping rear roofline as the GLC Coupe, and it will soon be available in a high-performance variant called the X4M.
