Following the launch of the newly redesigned Sedan, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 Coupe and Cabriolet are set to receive their own extensive updates. Shared visual features are the twin-louver AMG radiator grille, muscular front bumper and new rear bumper with round twin tailpipe trim elements.
“With the new C 43 Coupe and Cabriolet, we offer our customers extensively upgraded, visually and technically distinctive entry-level options into the performance world of Mercedes-AMG,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
Sporty and distinctive: the exterior design
The exterior of the C 43 Coupe and Cabriolet is considerably more expressive, even more strongly identifying the new models as members of the family. New distinguishing features include the AMG radiator grille with twin louvers in matte Iridium Silver and the powerfully sculpted front bumper with additional flics.
When viewed from the side, eye-catching features include the sporty side skirts plus new, aerodynamically optimized AMG light-alloy wheels.
The optional AMG Performance Studio Package creates highlights which are even sportier: the more expressive front splitter, standard-fit spoiler lip, broader side skirt inserts and flics in the rear bumper are finished in high- gloss black.
Sporty look with model-specific details: the interior design
Sporty materials such as leather, DINAMICA microfiber and aluminum in a high-quality finish continue the theme of the expressive exterior in the interior. The optional AMG Performance seats provide optimum lateral support when adopting a dynamic driving style thanks to the special design of the seat side bolsters of the seat cushion and backrest.
They are heated and, in conjunction with leather upholstery, also climate-controlled in three stages. In all C-Class Cabriolet models in the US market, the seats also come standard with AIRSCARF neck-level heating.
Comprehensive individualization options
Optionally available is a comprehensive choice of individualization options. With regard to trim, the range includes trim in Natural Grain Black Ash Wood and Aluminum, Natural Grain Line Walnut Wood, Dark Brown Linden Wood, Natural Grain Grey Oak Wood, AMG Carbon Fiber and Aluminum, and AMG Silver Fiber Glass and Aluminum.
Interior with innovative display concept and operating system
Whether with touchpad and Controller, Touch Control Buttons on the steering wheel or via voice entry: the operating system of the C 43 is just as versatile as it is flexible. All options are aimed at enabling the control tasks to be carried out as conveniently, quickly and appropriately to the situation as possible in this sporty environment.
Just as flexible is the display of the optional, fully digital instrument cluster with 12.3-inch screen diagonal, which brings the vehicle functions directly to life with the three AMG-specific display styles of “Classic,” “Progressive” or “Sport.”
A host of additional AMG information
Via the specific AMG menu, the driver is able to call up a host of additional information, such as Warm-up, Setup, G-Force, Race Timer or Engine Data, to make the driving experience even sportier. In addition, there is a digital indication of the current speed and selected gear.
New generation of AMG steering wheels
Extremely sporty design, a grippy shape with a heavily contoured rim and intuitive operation are the key attributes of the new AMG steering wheel in Nappa leather, which comes as standard equipment. It has a flattened bottom section and is perforated in the grip area.
