RE: Mercedes-AMG C43 facelift for Geneva

RE: Mercedes-AMG C43 facelift for Geneva

Outside, the 2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 Sedan gets a new and improved AMG-exclusive twin-louver grille design and front and rear bumper refreshes finished off by round twin tailpipe trim details.

The C43's 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine now churns out 287kW of power at 6100rpm, an increase of 17kW.

Both the headlights and taillights get a new lighting signature. 0-100km/h comes up in 4.7 seconds, according to claims, while the top speed is limited to 250km/h.

New for the Merc-AMG C 43 is the "Slippery" mode that ensures moderate power delivery when travelling on snow- or ice-covered surfaces.

Two new wheel designs have been added in 18- and 19-inch sizes, both optimised for aerodynamic efficiency in a wind tunnel by AMG engineers who also considered weight and brake cooling properties.

Like the previous C43, drivers can control the interior either through the touchpad and controller, buttons on the steering wheel or with voice commands.

Inside, the AMG C43 is loaded with technology, including a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster with selectable Classic, Sport or Supersport viewing modes.

The auto carries over the "Dynamic Select" drive programs "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport+' and "Individual", plus there's a fifth setting known as 'Slippery", designed for icy/snowy roads. Torque remains unchanged, at 384 pounds-feet, but it peaks a little higher on the tach - now 2,500-5,000 rpm rather than the previous 2,000-4,200 rpm. A 10.25-inch dashboard display replaces last year's 7- or 8.4-inch units.

Inside, the C43 can be had with standard leather seats or new AMG Performance Seats, featuring heated and tri-level ventilated thrones with sporty side bolstering and red seat belts. "As the most successful model series for Mercedes-AMG, the C-Class family in all its facets has made a major contribution to our corporate success", said Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

A fancy new steering wheel and wider infotainment screen are the key updates inside the 2019 C43's cabin.
