Following the recently introduced Mercedes-AMG C43 Coupé, both the sedan and estate versions of the C-Class will receive the C 43 badge too. Powering the Mercedes-AMG C 43 will be the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that produces 367 hp.
The engine remains pretty much the same compared to the Mercedes-AMG C 450 and enables a 4.7 seconds sprint to 100 km/h. The estate version takes 4.9 seconds to reach 100 km/h from a standstill. All C 43 models are to feature the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with shortened shift times as standard.
On the inside customers are greeted by the familiar range of ARTICO leather and DINAMICA microfiber upholstery with red contrast stitching. 18-inch black alloy wheels come standard on the C 43, and so do black exterior mirror housings and brake calipers finished in silver with AMG lettering. Some of the options include AMG performance seats and the AMG Performance Exhaust System.
The 2017 Mercedes-AMG C 43 is priced from 44,460 GBP in the UK. Soon we will have more on the freshly badged six-cylinder AMG from Mercedes-Benz.
