2023 Mercedes-AMG C 43 Preview
The C-Class has been a staple in the Mercedes lineup for decades. For many years now, the automaker has handed the car over to AMG for a special going-over. The standard C-Class was all-new for 2022, so while AMG typically sells a few flavors of the hotted-up sedan, the “entry-level” C 43 is the first to debut for the new-generation car.
Mercedes-AMG runs a Formula 1 team, and a successful one at that, but it’s taken until now for the automaker to bring existing race-bred tech to its production cars. The new C 43 gets an electric turbocharger that supplements its traditional turbo by reducing lag and improving responsiveness. That’s impressive for a vehicle that will eventually have two other models above it in the AMG catalog.
