2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 Sedan Bows with Performance Perks

2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 Sedan Bows with Performance Perks

By Philly Murtha, March 05, 2018
Having recently introduced the new 2019 C-Class Sedan, Mercedes-Benz this week previews a refreshed 2019 C-Class AMG C43 performance-enhanced compact premium sedan, one of three C-Class variants sold in the United States. The performance variant displays extra power, performance tweaks, and a host of sporty options in a preview at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. Last redone in 2015, Mercedes’ best-selling new 2019 C-Class variants will arrive at U.S. dealerships later this year.

Mild exterior design revisions to the compact premium sporty sedan include AMG’s twin-louver matte silver grille, more sculpted updated front and rear bumpers, and round tailpipe trim. The new C-Class AMG C43 variant also rides on AMG light-alloy wheels available in 18- or 19-in. sizes with three rim designs finished in gloss grey or black.

The new variant’s power has been amplified by 23 horsepower with AMG’s twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter V-6 engine that generates 385 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of peak torque, partnered with AMG’s 9-speed automatic transmission and standard 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. Mercedes officials say the 2019 AMG C43 will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds, with a top speed limited to 130 mph. Performance has been advanced with five dynamic driving modes ranging from Comfort to Sport+ and a new Slippery mode.

In addition, the 2019 C-Class AMG C43 variant will offer an upgraded digital cockpit design with three display options featured in the flagship S-Class along with techy driver-assistance systems borrowed from its larger E-Class sibling. The optional digital cockpit can be ordered along with an optional 12.3-in. screen. The new car also features AMG’s latest-generation leather steering wheel with touch control buttons.

The cabin of the new AMG C43 sedan is available with a larger choice of interior treatments from leather upholstery to AMG’s black microfiber with red stitching. New trims in natural wood grain and AMG carbon fiber and brushed aluminum are available. Heated, ventilated sporty AMG performance seats and headrests also can be selected. An optional AMG Night package provides sporty flash with front splitter, spoiler lip, side skirt inserts, and rear bumper flicks all in high-gloss black.
