AMG®-Enhanced Biturbo Engine
The AMG® C 43 Sedan houses an AMG®-enhanced 3.0L biturbo V6 engine that produces 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. In addition to twin-turbocharging, the engine owes its capability and efficiency to the following features:
- NANOSLIDE®: AMG® uses NANOSLIDE® technology to create the cylinder walls of the diecast aluminum block, resulting in greater performance and fuel economy.
- ECO-START®/Stop: During idling, this system turns off the engine to conserve fuel. The engine is restarted when you lift your foot from the brake.
- AMG®-Enhanced 9-Speed: AMG® programming makes the already fast, smooth-shifting 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic even sharper.
AMG® Handing Technologies
Like its AMG® siblings, this new C-Class is born for long stretches of highway and sharp bends. In fact, it can launch itself from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. Much of its speed and agility can be attributed to the following handling technologies, as well as the engine:
- AMG® Performance 4MATIC®: This system focuses heavily on rear-wheel-drive performance, but offers all the stability and safety of standard 4MATIC® all-wheel drive.
- AMG® RIDE CONTROL Sport Suspension: Using 3-stage damping, this suspension system seamlessly adjusts to the racetrack or streets of Waipahu.
- AMG® Performance Braking System: Perforated 14.2-inch front rotors and 12.6-inch rear discs give the AMG® C 43 incredible stopping power over a short distance.
- Wider Track: Developed by AMG®, the front axle and wider track create a sportier stance, as well as sharper feedback for the driver.
