The 2019 Mercedes-AMG C 43 is Mercedes’s Medium Hot Wing

by Chris Butsch

For 20 years, AMG has taken innocent and docile Mercedes and injected them with tire-shredding torque, roaring exhausts and spine-shattering suspensions (for an anthropomorphic analogy of AMG’s work, click here).

Problem is, many luxury car buyers find these German muscle cars to be intimidating in both price and power. To attract more devotees, AMG has dialed back the steroids to create the more sensible C 43.

By combining AMG nuttery with a pliant ride, modest power and a lower price point, the $57k C 43 is Mercedes’ medium hot wing: spicy, flavorful and exciting, without the heart palpitations.
