Fresh Air Included

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.

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.
