Since its launch earlier in the year, the AMG brand promise – Driving Performance – and the typical character traits can now be experienced by an even broader target group.

As an attractive entry into the world of AMG, the MercedesAMG C 43 4MATIC combines a 270kW 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with a permanent Performance all-wheel-drive system and sophisticated suspension technology adopted from the Mercedes-AMG C 63.

The result is fascinating Driving Performance and the hallmark emotional expressiveness of the brand.

The new AMG sports model is available as a sedan and a coupe variant, and makes the extensive product line-up within the C-Class range even more attractive.

The complete C-Class sedan range is manufactured in East London, including the flagship Mercedes-AMG C 63 and the C 63 S variants. “With the Mercedes-AMG C 43 we present a sporty and emotionally expressive vehicle.

It combines the power of a strong twin-turbo V6 engine with a high level of emotional expressiveness, and avails itself of the technical DNA of the new C 63.

The new sports models represent a convincing proposition for our customers: sports car technology and motor racing fascination become more attainable,” says Selvin Govender, Marketing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars.

The declared goal of MercedesBenz is making top-class safety available to everyone.

The C 43 4MATIC lives up to this standard as well because it adopts many of the new and significantly enhanced assistance systems that are also being used in the S-Class.

It comes standard-equipped with the further enhanced ATTENTION ASSIST fatigue detection system and COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, which helps prevent rear-end collisions. The assistance systems increase both comfort and safety.

The predecessor to the new C-Class already impressed with excellent results regarding passive safety. The current model surpasses it.
