Mercedes-AMG C43 prices bridge the C-Class AMG gap

The dream of owning a Mercedes-AMG coupe just got a little easier to realise, with local pricing for the C43 sedan, coupe and wagon.

It just got cheaper to score a Mercedes-AMG C-Class with prices for the V6-powered Mercedes-AMG C43 starting just north of $100,000. 

The C43 range encompasses sedan, coupe and wagon bodystyles, and all three are available to order now with deliveries commencing in October.

Opening the lineup is the C43 sedan, which retails for $101,900 plus on-roads. The estate follows at $104,400 and the C43 Coupe caps off the range at $105,615, putting the C43 family squarely in the middle between the mainstream C250d and the flagship V8-powered C63.

The C43 bridges the performance gap between the standard Mercedes-Benz C-Class models and the C63 as well. Sedan, coupe and wagon are all powered by a 3.0 litre twin-turbo petrol V6, which makes peak power of 270kW and a torque max of 520Nm. Power is sent to all four wheels via a performance-tuned all-wheel drive system and a nine-speed automatic is the sole transmission offered.

It’ll zip zero to 100km/h in about 4.7 seconds with the drive mode selector set to Sport or Sport+, while shift times are claimed to be substantially faster than grocery-getting versions of Benz’s nine-speed. 

Standard equipment for all C43 models includes a head-up display, AMG Night Package, 19-inch AMG wheels, sports suspension with adjustable dampers, a sports exhaust system, panoramic sunroof, Burmester surround sound system and Benz’s COMAND Online infotainment system

The Coupe adds heated front seats to that list. 

Aesthetically, the C43 boasts a beefed up bodykit to help differentiate it from the standard C-Class, though the absence of a pair of longitudinal strakes on the bonnet are the tell-tale clue that the C43 doesn’t have a honking 4.0 litre V8 in its snout. 

Standard safety equipment includes collision prevention assist, active lane keeping, blindspot warning and a 360-degree parking camera view.
