China Automotive News Network Honestly, from the time I took the C43 key to the car door and pulled into the car, I did not look at the TA as an AMG. After two years of experience with the C43 sedan, I still see no changes in this coupe version.
Regardless of appearance or exhaust sound, this 43 still feels too bland, and this test drive car does not even have the matte paint that AMG likes in recent years, which is a very ordinary bright red. Only the body of the two-door coupe and the nameplate on the door reminded me that the origin of this car was not Daxing, but that it came to China from the Bremen factory across the sea.
So what will make people spend nearly double the price to choose such a C-Class, maybe those people who are not crazy about pursuing extreme performance, need an AMG Paradise admission ticket.
This is a C-Class that can wander with Audi 4WD owners in snowy days.
Honestly, driving down the street, I like that this 43 is better than 63, especially in rainy and snowy days. Although it is just an ordinary 4 Matic full-time four-wheel drive, the 31:69 ratio is also more like a rear-wheel drive in terms of characteristics, but driving it gives you more confidence than a pure rear-wheel drive.
Driving on a safe closed section, turning off the limited slip a little, you can also feel the restless twisting of the tail when the floor is oily, but it will soon be restricted by the computer.
The assembly line of the V6 twin-turbo engine is not signed by the engineer, and it has no charm in sound. Even the four-out tail pipe is only a camouflage of bilateral single-exhaust, but the power reserve of 390 horsepower and 520 Nm is real. In less than 5 seconds, the acceleration of 100 kilometers can also cry a lot of opponents.
However, if I am the owner of this car, I will definitely purchase the modified exhaust and Michelin tires before picking up the car, and I will replace this low-profile C-Class in the first time, and then paste the "tb" "Beijing Benz", to be a Sleeper in the C-class riders group.
The adjustment of the 9-speed gearbox is actually much better than before, especially the comfort and controllability in the comfort mode, which are no different from an ordinary C-class, but once switched to S or S + mode, this car His personality will immediately become irritable, and then switch the suspension mode to the hardest. On the bad road in Beijing, a row of manhole covers are connected. Congratulations to your brother, your co-driver can be replaced.
Then, in addition to the imported noble identity, and the ability to quietly kill the opponent, the C43 also gives a little play to the advantages that Mercedes itself has, that is, the interior and details.
Although there is no large screen of E53, this LCD meter on the C-Class is more sports car-like. Information such as G value, oil temperature, track lap speed and other information can be easily read. I drove the AMG GT myself.
In terms of details, AMG's latest steering wheel, metal and alcantara mix and match materials is a word whether it is visual or tactile: high-end, in addition, there are red stitching, red seat belts and perforated sports seats in the car, even if there is no apple tree blessing , Then we are also a riotous Mercedes.
The C-Class coupe itself is a niche car, and with the skin and performance blessings of AMG, this car becomes even more alternative. But for performance enthusiasts, aside from a little saneness, this is not a more suitable choice for daily travel than the C63.
In recent years, Mercedes-Benz has continuously introduced more entry-level AMG models. The 43 series and 45 series have indeed helped many young people and performance fans realize their dream of owning "AMG". Compared to the V8 pure rear-wheel drive that sells millions in China, these entry-level models are simply AMG's tax avoidance magic cars.
