The cabriolet model of the C-Class range was not spared either, a 3.0 V6 engine in the front, hooked-up to a 9-speed automatic

I guess you could say that the Germans are very thorough breed, and none could be a better example than plastering the AMG C43 badge on just about every C Class-based Mercedes there is.

We have driven the C43 Sedan, and we did love the neat handling, all the bits of tech above the 4MATIC which keeps a driver safe, and packaged into a compact-sized sedan about the size of a Japanese compact econobox footprint.

The cabriolet model of the C-Class range was not spared either, a 3.0 V6 engine in the front, hooked-up to a 9-speed automatic, driving all four wheels, and stickered around the car, the ever-so important street-cred upping AMG badging.

Exterior
One could say that those who were considering the cabriolet model did consider the coupe, styling-wise, they are rather similar, in the cabriolet’s case, Mercedes had gone with a soft top. Up in front, LED daytime running lights stripe across the headlamp lenses, and the single-bar front grille features their signature diamond theme. AMG styling shows up in the large scoops in the front bumper, and a frosted silver lip under the bumper.

We did test the more vanilla C200 Cabriolet a while ago, and loved how the wind deflectors did a good job of reducing the buffeting you’d get form the wind with the top down. The C43 also is equipped with the same good stuff, just in-case you’d find a high-speed straight, and would like the idea of doing it with the top down.

The Other AMG cues are the large perforated front brake discs sitting inside 18” rims, 225/45 in front and 245/40 at the rear.

I tried advertising my vehicle on both Oneshift and another portal. Oneshift gave me the best price for my vehicle. Dealer who contacted me was professional and took the trouble to explain process and address my concerns. Will definitely choose Oneshift again if I ever need to sell my car.
