Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC: a lot to intrigue

Its 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 with a 9-speed automatic 4-wheel drive differential starts a new trend for the Mercedes-AMG brand. 369bhp brings with it brisk performance synonymous with all that has come from AMG in the past, yet some way short of the tire-smoking V8 muscle which has grown its popularity. Take a look at this fine example, a C 43 4MATIC Coupé which stands alone as a formidable comfortable cruiser yet enthusiastically loud in ‘Sport+’ with suitable pops, bangs and crackles as it hurtles down the road. There’s more to enjoy when it comes to its sure-footed all-wheel drive, seemingly clambering at every inch of the tarmac to scrape maximum grip in all but the most treacherous conditions.

Exterior 

The sporty, striking exterior design of the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC is based on the AMG Line exterior and is augmented with specific features. These include the diamond radiator grille with pins in chrome with “AMG” lettering, the “BITURBO 4MATIC” badge on the front wings and the two tailpipe trim elements in a twin-tailpipe design plus silver chrome-colored and high-gloss black detachable body parts and trim. The AMG spoiler lip on the trunk lid is the same as the one on the C 63 Coupé.

Interior 

The interior greets the driver with an authentic sports car atmosphere, with multifunction sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section, sports seats with enhanced lateral support and an exclusive AMG instrument cluster with AMG menu. The seat upholstery, door center panels and also the upper part of the dashboard and beltlines are finished with red topstitching, a feature that is typical of the 43-series models.

Powertrain

Thanks to the technology developed by Mercedes-AMG engineers, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé is very agile to drive and offers exhilarating lateral dynamics. The basis for the high degree of hallmark AMG Driving Performance is the Mercedes-Benz 3.0-Liter V6 Biturbo engine enhanced by Mercedes-AMG and the performance-oriented all-wheel drive system AMG Performance 4MATIC with AMG-specific power distribution of 31% to the front axle and 69% to the rear axle. The three-stage AMG adjustable damping of the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension is taken from the Mercedes-AMG C 63.
