With technology derived directly from Formula 1™, the latest generation of the Mercedes-AMG C 43 Sedan sets new standards for innovative drive solutions. Following its global premiere in the Mercedes-AMG SL 43, the AMG M139l hand-built engine, the world’s first series-production unit to feature an electric exhaust-gas turbocharger, is now also being used in the new AMG C 43 Sedan. Developed exclusively at Mercedes-AMG, the advanced unit is produced under the company’s “One Man, One Engine” principle. The new form of turbocharging guarantees a spontaneous response across the entire rev range and thus offers an even more dynamic driving experience. The turbocharger is operated via the 48-volt electrical system, which also feeds the belt-driven starter-generator (RSG). In the AMG C 43 Sedan the unit produces 402 hp and, in certain driving situations, is able to receive a brief additional boost of 13 hp from the electric motor. The standard rear-axle steering, AMG Performance 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with rear-biased torque distribution, AMG SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 9G transmission with wet start-off clutch and AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with Adaptive Damping System also contribute to the dynamic powertrain. The 2023 AMG C 43 Sedan impressively leads its segment in both power and efficiency.

“The C-Class has always been an absolute success story for Mercedes-AMG. With the innovative technology of the electric exhaust-gas turbocharger, we are once again significantly increasing the attractiveness of this latest generation. The new turbocharging system and the 48-volt on-board electrical system not only contribute to the outstanding driving dynamics of the C 43, but also improve its efficiency. In this way, we are demonstrating the tremendous potential that lies in electrified combustion engines. The standard all-wheel drive, the active rear-axle steering and the quick-shifting transmission all serve to enhance the Driving Performance that is the hallmark of AMG,” says Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

At the heart of the new AMG C 43 is the AMG 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which combines innovative technologies and high performance with exemplary efficiency. At the same time, it remains true to a tradition typical of the brand: not only was it developed entirely at the company’s site in Affalterbach, but it is also manufactured there in accordance with the principle of “One Man, One Engine.” In this process, Mercedes-AMG combines the craftsmanship of its highly qualified employees with the latest production methods of Industry 4.0 and a high degree of digitalization.

The internally named M139l engine (l for longitudinal installation) is the world’s first series-production engine to be turbocharged with an electric exhaust-gas turbocharger. The innovative system is a direct derivative of the technology that the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team has been using so successfully in the premiere class of motorsport for many years. The new form of turbocharging guarantees a particularly spontaneous response across the entire rev range. This leads to an even more performance-oriented driving experience, while also increasing efficiency.

Characteristic AMG elements for the exterior and interior ensure a sporty, refined appearance

On the exterior, numerous AMG-specific details underscore both the dynamic and the luxurious character of the AMG C 43. In terms of exterior design, these include the AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical struts in chrome, AMG front bumper with air flics, sporty air intakes and chrome-plated trim element, matching side sill panels, the diffuser-look rear bumper, and two round twin-tailpipe trim elements. The AMG C 43 is fitted with AMG light-alloy wheels and 18-inch tires as standard, with 19- and 20-inch options available.

In the interior, features such as AMG seats with a distinct upholstery layout and seat covers in black MB-Tex/Microfiber with red contrasting stitching and red seat belts provide a particularly sporty touch. The flat-bottom AMG Performance steering wheel in Nappa leather has a perforated grip area and silver-colored aluminum gearshift paddles. The two round AMG steering wheel buttons allow fast and unerring operation of various dynamic driving functions and AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs. The dashboard and upper door trim are upholstered in leather with red topstitching. The sporty, luxurious atmosphere is rounded off by AMG sport pedals, AMG floor mats and illuminated door sills with AMG lettering.
