Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 as you will in the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Warranty
