Mercedes-Benz C-Class Saloon C43 AMG 4Matic Review
Wag no Tails The Mercedes-Benz C43

Introduction and Exterior

The C43 sits in the same playpen as the lesser Audi and BMW models, but do not be fooled though. The Merc’s potent V6 twin-turbocharged engine is mated to a nine-speed transmission, driving all four wheels, makes this a very entertaining car, and wickedly nimble

The current C Class Mercedes-Benz is in-complete if there is no hot model in it’s range. For this, the guys at Stuttgart had fielded two C Segment sedans, the AMG C63 and the AMG C43.

Audi has their S4 and RS4, BMW has their more muted 340i and mental M3. Mercedes needed one to fill this lower segment, since they only had a C63 model previously.

The C43 sits in the same playpen as the lesser Audi and BMW models, but do not be fooled though. The Merc’s potent V6 twin-turbocharged engine is mated to a nine-speed transmission, driving all four wheels, makes this a very entertaining car, and wickedly nimble.

Exterior

Compared to the C63, the C43’s styling is more muted. There are smaller tailpipe covers compared to its big brother, with the big fat ones and the jutting out diffusor. Less chrome trim, and more visible ‘diamonds’ on the front grille.

Twin-spoked, gloss painted 19” rims fill up those wheel arches, hidden behind the rims are 360 X 35mm ventilated discs up front, and 320 X 24mm ones in the rear, covering ventilated discs.

The C43 sits on a 2,840mm wheelbase, just 30mm longer than the BMW 3 series, but the tapered rear end, does make the car look smaller than the previous W204 model, which was a whole 80mm shorter.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
