For the 2023 model year, the C43 has undergone a complete redesign, and it ought to be available at Mercedes dealers by the end of 2022. There will be a C63 model that is even more potent, and we already know that a 2.0-liter turbo-four will also power it. A powerful sedan with a cutting-edge new engine at its core, the new Mercedes-AMG C 43 is the latest in the tradition. The 2023 C43 sports sedan results from the wits at Mercedes' AMG tuning division being given free rein to work on the new C-class. This time, the C43 makes do with two fewer cylinders and an engine with one less liter of displacement but with the same amount of power. Visit Mercedes-Benz of Gilbert in Gilbert, Arizona, to find out more about the performance details and engine of this sport sedan.
The 2023 C43 has a 2.0-liter inline-four turbocharged engine, smaller than the 385-hp, 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 that powered the previous model. Not to be feared, though; this new engine still produces a solid 402 horsepower while being helped by a 48-volt hybrid system that can briefly provide up to 13 additional horsepower at lower rpm. The hybrid aid does not, however, increase the overall power output. The new engine's turbocharger design is partly based on the manufacturer's F1 racing-engine technology. The compressor spins up more quickly thanks to an extra electric motor built into the turbocharger, which also cuts down on turbo lag. The C43 handles nimbly and predictably and has plenty of cornering grip. A stiff ride in even the lowest driving mode setting is the price to pay for that level of performance. A sizable 11.9-inch infotainment touchscreen is standard on all versions, and it is slanted slightly toward the driver and perfectly integrated into the center console. The system runs the most recent MBUX software interface, which supports voice activation, and comes standard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge display.
