Mercedes launched its new 2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 car in the Indian market at a price of Rs 75 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
Back in 2016, Mercedes-Benz introduced the AMG C43 Sedan, which found quite a few takers.. Since then, the C-Class has facelift, and Mercedes-Benz launched the updated C-Class sedan and Cabriolet last year. Now, instead of bringing the C43 sedan facelift, the creator has chosen to launch the first C43 Coupe.
The new AMG C43 Coupe is powered by the same 3.0-litre V6 engine that was used in the C43 4MATIC sedan earlier sold in India, but in a different state of tune.
Essentially a two-door coupe based on the C-Class with the AMG treatment. The new AMG C43 Coupe is powered by 3.0-litre V6 engine that makes 390PS (23PS more) of power and 520Nm of torque and comes mated to a 9-speed AMG Speedshift gearbox.
It comes with a rear-biased 31:69 power distribution with a 4MATIC all-wheel drive, and an adjustable suspension of three steps from AMG's older sibling AMG C63. The C43 can only run at 0-100 kmphs in 4.7 seconds and it has a limited top speed of 250 km per hour electronically.
It is also equipped with Touch Control Button and Head Up Display.The AMG C43 compete with India's Audi S5, which costs Rs 72.4 lakh (ex-showroom).
