Don’t be turned off by the “43” moniker because it’s still a full fledge AMG-model. Well, sort of. Underneath the hood is a 3.0-litre bi-turbo V6 that churns out 362 hp and 520 Nm of torque mated to a nine-speed G-Tronic automatic gearbox. As the 4MATIC badge denotes, both variants are equipped with the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel system. Century sprint time is done and dusted in 4.7 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h.
Standard on C 43 models is the AMG Ride Control sports suspension which allows the drivers to select from three different damping settings – Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. The AMG speed-sensitive sports steering adjusts its power assistance according to the Dynamic Select driving programmes (Comfort and Sport). The AMG sports exhaust system is fitted as standard.
Visually, both cars wear the signature AMG diamond radiator grille, dual exhaust outlets, AMG lip spoiler as well as “BITURBO 4MATIC” on the front fenders. A set of 19-inch AMG five-spoke lightweight alloy wheels are fitted as standard on both models.
Step inside and you will be greeted with ARTICO leather upholstery, sports seats, multifunctional flat bottomed steering wheel, red contrast stitching and AMG instrument cluster with AMG menu.
