Mercedes-Benz will launch the C43 AMG in India tomorrow. After the C63 AMG S, the C43 AMG will be the second performance offering in the C-Class line-up and overall be the 11th offering in the AMG portfolio in India.

Powering the C43 AMG will be a 3.0-litre V6 Biturbo engine which produces 361bhp and 520Nm. It is mated to the AMG spec nine-speed automatic transmission. The driver can choose from five transmission modes from the Dynamic Select switch – economy, comfort, sport, sport and individual. A sprint from 0 - 100kmph takes around 4.7seconds while the top speed is electronically limited to 250kmph.

The C43 AMG comes with the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system unlike the C63 S AMG, which is rear-wheel drive. All the torque from the engine is split by sending 33 per cent to the front axle and 67 per cent to the rear.

It gets 18-inch five-spoke light-alloy wheels as standard, but Mercedes can also provide a 19-inch five-twin-spoke or multi-spoke alloys as optional extra. Braking responsibilities will be taken care by ventilated compound brake discs at the front and rear. The C43 can also be had with AMG Performance exhaust system.

On the inside you get a 5.5-inch multifunction display stacked in between the instrument pods. The flat-bottomed steering wheel with mounted controls and paddle shifters. The most fascinating element inside the cabin are the red seatbelts complimented by red contrast stitching. The COMMAND infotainment system, 590 watts Burmester surround sound system with 13 speakers, and panoramic sliding sunroof will all come as standard in the C43 AMG.

The C43 AMG comes in as the third AMG 43 offering from the German manufacturer this year after the GLE 43 AMG Coupe and the SLC 43 AMG. Mercedes-Benz India is aiming to gain popularity with the AMG43 nomenclature in the country with the C43 AMG. When launched in India, it will take on the fight to the Audi S5 and BMW M3. The price tag for the C43 AMG is expected to be between Rs 85-92 lakh (ex-showroom).
