strengthened its AMG portfolio by driving in the powerful AMG C 43 4Matic at a
price of Rs 74.35 lakh (ex showroom Delhi). This is the third product with the
43 AMG nomenclature for the Indian market. The Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC
complements the C-Class range by another sports build of Mercedes-AMG origin.
The Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC was launched by Michael Jopp, Vice President,
Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India.
The Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC
is powered by a V6, 4 valves per cylinder, 2,996 cc ebngine which produces a
peak 367 hp @ 5,500–6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 520 Nm@2,000–4,200 rpm. The
car accelerates from 0 to 100 kmph in 4.7 sec and achieves a top speed of 250kmph.
The car has different driving
modes and the driver can select one of five transmission modes using the
Dynamic Select switch: “ECO”, “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport +” and “Individual”.
The 9G-Tronic Automatic Transmission features nine forward gears. The
performance-oriented all-wheel drive developed by Mercedes-AMG combines optimum
traction, hallmark AMG driving dynamics and maximum driving pleasure. This is
ensured by the clear torque distribution to the rear. Unlike in the standard
model, Mercedes-AMG distributes the engine torque in a ratio of 31% to the
front axle and 69% to the rear axle. In addition, AMG 4Matic all-wheel drive
increases driving safety and traction on wet or wintry road surfaces.
The AMG sports suspension with independently
developed AMG front and rear axle enables high cornering speeds and agile
handling. All of the components are matched to provide high lateral
acceleration, precise steering characteristics and a reduced body roll
The sports exhaust system
features an even sportier character and reinforces the emotional sound
experience. The acoustics can be tailored to suit personal taste in conjunction
with the Dynamic Select driving modes via the integrated exhaust flap.
The sporty, striking exterior
is based on the AMG Line exterior and is augmented with specific features,
creating an even sportier and more individual appearance. The steep diamond
radiator grille with chrome pins. With the louvre in black and chrome trim
creates an emphatically expressive impression. AMG front apron with sporty,
striking air intakes, diamond-pattern grilles and front splitter in silver
chrome add to the appeal.
The saloon features a 45.7 cm
(18-inch) AMG 5-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in high-gloss black and with a
high-sheen finish. "BITURBO 4MATIC" lettering on the front wings is
standard. The Mercedes-AMG C 43 4Matic finalizes its sporty look at the rear
end with the signature AMG twin-tailpipe design
The interior greets the driver
with an authentic sports car atmosphere, created by the synergy of the
multifunction sports steering wheel, sports seats in ARTICO man- made leather
with enhanced lateral support and an AMG instrument cluster. The 43- series
typical red topstitching stresses the exclusivity of the AMG brand. 3-spoke
multifunction sports steering wheel in
black nappa leather with
red topstitching, flattened
bottom section, heavily embossed in grip area, with DIRECT SELECT steering wheel
shift paddles and steering wheel
bezel in silver
chrome. Red topstitching on the
upper part of the dashboard, beltline, door centre panels and armrests in
ARTICO man-made leather is a typical feature of the 43-series models. It

cm (5.5-inch) multifunction display, AMG main menu including RACE TIMER and 280

The sports seats in ARTICO
man-made leather/DINAMICA microfiber with red contrast topstitching along with
AMG-specific seat upholstery layout are implying typical AMG sportiness. More
contouring and higher seat side bolsters at the front provide optimized lateral
support and brace the passengers during dynamic cornering. The car is also
equipped with designo seats belts in red adding to the overall sporty appeal.
