Coming soon to the UK is the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC, a scintillating driving experience delivered through a 367 hp engine with 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The C 43 4MATIC epitomises the ‘Driving Performance’ that you have come to expect from the AMG badge.
The new 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine is part of the BlueDIRECT engine family ensuring effective combustion, enhanced performance and reduced fuel consumption. Technical advances such as modified boost pressure increases engine output and torque as well as improving dynamism and flexibility. In addition, the same technology that can be found in the MERCEDES-AMG PETRONAS Formula One engines, have made their way to the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC; contributing to less engine-friction and higher overall efficiency.
The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission matches the demands of the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC perfectly by reducing shift times of the 9-speed transmission, known as the multiple downshift. This allows even faster bursts of speed, while the double-declutching function in the 'Sport' and 'Sport Plus' transmission modes match your emotions to the driving experience.
The Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC suspension has been redefined for a comfortable and controlled ride, while that white knuckle experience is always just a rev-of-the-engine away. With improved agility, reduced body roll, higher lateral acceleration, better traction and strong neutral handling, the driver is always in command.
Sporty and muscular, the C 43 4MATIC is instantly recognisable as part of the prestigious AMG family. The characteristic AMG styling finds its way into the C 43 4MATIC with dramatic effect. From the sporty distinctive air intakes, to the chrome-plated diamond radiator grille; the progressive nature and performance of AMG has been captured perfectly in the body, styling and design of the C 43 4MATIC.
Mercedes-Benz has always seen comfort as a non-negotiable, the ARTICO leather/DINAMICA microfibre upholstery ensure, whatever your driving style, comfort and luxury is at the fore. The multifunction sports steering wheel, finished in black leather with a flattened bottom section and contrasting red topstitching sits perfectly in the hand. The AMG instrument cluster delivers all relevant information in a clearly arranged layout, allowing you to focus on the road ahead.
The Mercedes-Benz C 43 4MATIC will be available in Saloon, Estate and the revered Coupé with production beginning in June 2016. For more information please contact your nearest dealership.
