    Mercedes-AMG is set to launch the performance-oriented C 43 Coupe in India on March 14, 2019. The coupe version of the C-class facelift will be the new entry point to Mercedes-AMG’s India range.  

    In terms of design, the C43 Coupe will feature subtle upgrades over the standard C-class sedan, the facelift for which arrived in India in September last year. Apart from the obvious omission of the rear doors, it will get a sporty body kit, larger alloy wheels, different tail-lights and quad-exhaust tips as part of the package.  

    Unlike the range-topping C-class, the C 63, which houses a twin-turbo V8, the C 43 Coupe will be powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol motor that puts out 390hp and 520 Nm of torque. A 9-speed automatic gearbox will send power to all-four wheels via Mercedes’ 4Matic system.The C 43 Coupe completes the 0-100kph dash in 4.7 sec and has an electronically-limited top speed of 250kph.

    The cabin of the C43 Coupe will be on par with the facelifted C-Class’. Being an AMG, the C 43 Coupe will feature sports seats at the front, a sporty multifunction steering wheel and AMG-specific menus in the infotainment system.   

    Mercedes launched the C 43 AMG sedan back in December 2016 at Rs 74.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). We expect the Coupe to be priced a little higher than the sedan. Although it has no direct rival in our market, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 Coupe will compete with the Audi S5 Sportback.
