- Mercedes has priced the 2023 AMG C43 sedan at $61,050.
- It has a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine with 402 horsepower.
- All-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission are standard.
The newest middle child of the Mercedes C-class lineup, the
2023 AMG C43 sedan, now has a price. It starts at $61,050, a $3500 bump compared with the last time the C43 sedan was offered, for the 2021 model year.
The C43 looks a whole lot different this time around, as this performance model now has a turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain compared with the old model’s turbo V-6. Power is up, however, with the new 2.0-liter engine pumping out 402 horsepower compared with the old V-6’s 385 hp. If you’re not sold on this setup in the new W205-generation model, you can still buy the old W206-generation C43 in coupe and convertible form for 2023, as these carry over for the time being.
Mercedes will offer the C43 in two trim levels, with the base called Premium. The Pinnacle trim, for an extra $2800, adds features including heated front seats, a sunroof, larger screens, and a head-up display. There are also other options available such as a $3250 Performance Seat package, a $1700 driver-assist package, and many more standalone add-ons that will easily push the price over $70,000.
The C43 is starting to arrive at U.S. dealerships now, but the real AMG faithful will still be kept waiting for the top-dog: the 2024 AMG C63. It swaps the old C63’s V-8 for a new plug-in-hybrid setup with a four-cylinder that puts out a whopping 671 horsepower in total. Pricing is still a mystery, but we reckon it will cost a pretty penny.
