The Coupe-SUV is claimed to sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

This reiterates our strong commitment to the Indian market and our continuous effort towards creating value for our customers. We are confident that the local production of the AMG will further increase the popularity of the performance brand in India and cater to the increasing demand for performance motoring enthusiasts. The local production of AMG gives us a competitive edge in the dynamic Indian luxury car market. – Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India
