Highlights

  • The C43 bridges the gap between the C200 & the Mercedes-AMG C63
  • It is powered by a twin turbo 3.0-litre V6
  • The C43 also gets features like AMG ride control

Mercedes-AMG India has launched the Mercedes-AMG C43 4Matic in India in a move to expand its performance oriented automobile portfolio. The C43 is the 13th launch of the year for Mercedes-Benz India and comes as a bonus after the manufacturer originally intended to launch just 12 cars in 2016. The Mercedes-AMG C43 is priced at ₹ 74.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and bridges the gap between the entry level Mercedes-Benz C200 petrol and the beastly Mercedes-AMG C63 S.

The Mercedes-AMG C43 is powered by a twin turbo 3.0-litre V6 that makes 357bhp and 520Nm of torque mated to the 9G-TRONIC gearbox. It can go from 0-100kmph in 4.7 seconds. Unlike the C200 or the C63, the C43 comes with an all-wheel-drive setup in order to compete against the likes of the Audi S4. The C43 also gets features like AMG ride control which is a sports suspensions setup with AMG developed springs and a 3 stage variable damper. The C43 also gets a performance exhaust as standard with a raspy exhaust note similar to the one found on the GLE450 and the SLC43.

The interior on the Mercedes-AMG C43 is also slightly sportier as compared to the normal car with optional red accents on the door panels and aluminium accents on the dashboard. The instrument cluster also sports the typical AMG style with the sporty "chequered flag" design.

On the exterior design front, the C43 gets larger air intakes on the front bumpers and a more aggressive stance due to larger AMG-spec wheels. The rear bumper gets an inbuilt diffuser and the C43 also gets a subtle lip spoiler on the bootlid. The rear bumper also gets a quad exhaust setup that is typically expected from all AMG cars.

Although the Mercedes-AMG C43 does not have any real competition in India yet as Audi India no longer sells the S4, it will go up against the likes of the S5 Sportback and the upcoming Volvo S60 Polestar too.
