A Stint in a C43 AMG Coupe Prefacelift.


On November 4, 2019

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption L/100km

The gap between C300 and C63 have been quite a huge one, Audi S4 and BMW 340i ( or M340i talking current Bmw terminology) needed a rivalry if we talk sedan format, that’s when Mercedes-Benz AMG seen the need to close the gap by introducing C43 AMG back in 2016.

I drive the W205 pre-facelift C43 AMG in coupe version for the first time, which is more of a Bmw 440i and Audi S5 coupe direct rivalry.

Powered by the 3.0L Twin-Turbo V6 delivering 270NM/520NM mated to 9G Tronic gearbox and 4matic/ all wheel drive setup unlike its Tyre shredding rear wheel drive hooligan C63 big sister.

However even though the C43 is 4Matic drivetrain, it offers a rear wheel drive biased setup for better traction and stability and can send 69 percent of torque to the rear, my test unit was in the standard 18 inch alloys, tinted glass and LED headlights and LED Daylight running lights as well as Diamond Grille embedded with AMG badge.


Compared to a standard C300 Coupe, the C43 has angrier front and rear bumpers, there’s Bi-Turbo 4Matic badges on the fenders to serve as reminder of what you seeing as well as silver plated AMG written brake calipers.


C43 looks classy and elegant with flowing sharp curves in right places , large rear end and a sweeping roofline ensures a cool look of the Coupe, with AMG badge making a debut on tailgate.

There is negative camber channeled into the front and rear geometry to allow the tyres more cornering grip when in the works, C43 is equipped with ventilated brake discs that are 360mm front and 320mm with three-stage electronic stability system.


The interior is unmistakable Mercedes-Benz with fine leather and alcantara mix with Red stitching on the sports seats , dashboard, steering wheel ,door panels and on the carpets as well as stainless steel foot pedals as well as carbon Fibre look touches.

You can navigate from Eco through Comfort to Sport, Sport+ and the individual tunes where you specifically choose the what you want the car to behave, meaning you can be driving on Eco mode but noise on Sport mode to Beautifully trick your ears.

There is flat-bottomed multifunctional steering wheel and affixed alloy paddles for manual engagement should you get tired of watching the 9G box doing all the labour for you, COMAND infotainment system in the form of single floating iPad screen.


But how does it drives:- Put your foot down and there’s a brilliant surge of acceleration accompanied by Beautiful V6 cacophony with addictive blips on changing down controlled manually by the paddle shifters, the car also feels reasonably grippy and manageable of twisty tarmac.

The gear shifts from the nine-speed auto are crisp and quick and changes up with alacrity, smaller and lighter engine combined with the better traction, helps the C43 feel more responsive and planted.

Speed sensitive sport steering ensures more agile handling in cornering and authentic feedback, The C43 is certainly a quick car no doubt and makes the statement if you keen on everyday brilliance.

Verdict:- Yes there is a face-lifted C43 already in our market however if you on a budget and fancy an AMG C63-Lite with manageable power, this is something to buy on pre-owned market, it have the sporty looks and speed.

In Sports Plus mode the V6 engine screams and crackles, It’s a different soundtrack to the Big Sister V8 , but still exhilarating in a satisfying V6 manner, a companion for everyday thrill and drivability and without the need and purpose to scare you.
