"A fast compact sedan 0-60 in 4.0 to 4.1 seconds"

by MR. AMG from CENTREVILLE, VA. | April 14, 2020

You can maximize horsepower and torque with this vehicle by during three applications: 1st is select sport + mode, 2nd is depress traction button on the center console, which will give you handling mode without traction and xxxxxxx stability control, third and final is paddle shifting after 2nd gear transmission is engaged or you can select the manual transmission also on the center console if you are a pro/experience with that mode of driving. This is my third AMG C43 , I have had two 2017 C43 coupes and now a 2020 C43 sedan that is fully loaded with 19" rims except HUD: HEADS UP DISPLAY. I wanted more hip, head, rear seat room and rear windows that let down. If you like exhaust sounds get the performance exhaust system for the strong pows and gurgle pops. I have also changed out the summer tires that come standard with 19" rims to Kenda UHP VEZDA 400 ALL SEASON PERFORMANCE non run flat tires, so when it snows I have outstanding snow traction with these Kenda tires and they have a 50,000 mile warranty and a AAA TRACTION AND A TEMPERATURE rating.

Great running, great looking car.

Great running, great looking car. This car does everything that is advertised, even more. It is a bi-turbo V6, and not only does it move really well, it gets great gas mileage. And it looks killer

C43 Sedan - Obsidian Black, Designo, Perf Package

Looking for performance luxury? The 2017 C43 delivers and the only AMG that has all wheel drive. This puppy has some serious get up and go and can also handle all weather conditions. Performance exhaust is impressive and turns heads. The only area for improvement can be with the Mercedes Me app (which has nothing to do with the car itself).
