2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 gets soft updates on power and styling

When Mercedes-Benz gave the regular C-Class models a soft update for the 2019 model year, it was already expected that it would do the same to the high-performance C-Class units. Now, the Mercedes-AMG C43 is getting a soft update – both in terms of looks and power – when it arrives as a 2019 model year.

Offered in Saloon and Estate variants, the new Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC is considered as the entry-level high-performance C-Class model. Thus, it is only logical that it receives certain updates. For starters, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate are provided with new distinguishing visual elements like the AMG radiator grille with twin louver in matt iridium silver, as well as the dynamically sculpted front apron with extra flics. The front apron features side air curtains that help channels front airstream. The trim details on the front splitter as well as the cross fin attachment now don a silver chrome finish.

On the rear end, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate now feature a pair of round (instead of angular) twin tailpipe trim elements as finished high-gloss chrome. The rear end is also defined by a rear apron with side air curtain appearance, a more expressive diffuser as well as body-colored spoiler lip on the boot lid.

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Facelift gets more power and tech upgrades

The outgoing Mercedes-Benz C Class began production in the year 2015. And even though it may not be that old, the automaker decided to already give it a mid-cycle refresh and finally, it has arrived with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan. The automaker recently just took the camouflage off the vehicle, before setting out to make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.

When looking at the new C-Class sedan from the outside, changes seem to be very subtle but noticeable. For instance, the single bar diamond grille from the AMG Line now comes standard, surrounded by new LED headlights that are now standard as well.

The front fascia looks tweaked with horizontal fins in the side air intakes. The rear fascia has also been redesigned, now with an additional diffuser. The headlights and the taillights also got a minor design change and an LED upgrade, and the sedan now sits on a set of 17 inch twin five spoke wheels that are standard.

Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall of over 10,500 MY2015 C-class sedans in the United States due to a production error that could cause steering wheels to squeak and fail to turn. Mercedes spokeswoman Donna Boland remarked that the issue was first noticed in September in two vehicles in Europe.

The vehicles had their “steering coupling interlock” in an open position, when they should have been released locked from the factory in Europe. The 2015 C-class model – built in Europe -- was launched in the US at the end of August, Boland said.

The spokeswoman noted models in the US are built at the carmaker’s Vance plant in Alabama, which means there is no reason to say that they also carry the same issue.

Mercedes-Benz will reduce the fuel economy ratings of some MY2013-2014 C-class sedans after the United States Environmental Protection Agency found errors in mpg test procedures.

A C300 4Matic version fueled by ethanol or gasoline will also have its city rating reduced by 1 mpg to 19 mpg, although its 27 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined will stay as they are. The changes were confirmed by a Mercedes spokeswoman.
