What we know about the C43 AMG

The C43 AMG is set to release sometime next year and last week we got our first look at the beauty via the Geneva Auto Show. In terms of specs a few things were released so we will cover what we know at this time.

What's the Same:

Well the engine has not changed in the C Class convertible it will be the same 362 hp, 384 lb.-ft biturbo 3.0-liter V6. It also doesn't look like they have changed any of the interior with this unit either not surprising there.

What's Different:

Well, here we have a few things cosmetically the rear end looks way better in our opinion compared to their coupe version that they released earlier this year. A pic can be found below:

Additionally, we now have an additional AMG logo on the grill

We also found out that under the hood there are a few changes for starters the standard 4Matic all-wheel drive system has been updated from 33-66 front-rear bias to a 31-69 front-rear bias.

While not specific to the C43 all convertibles will receive a new 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.


All of this makes up a slightly better 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds.
