Mercedes UK announced pricing for the C43 AMG and the addition of new AWD models in the range.
The sedan version of the turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 model is priced from £44,460 with the Estate model asking from £45,660 and the Coupe £46,280.
With 367hp on tap, the sedan and coupe C43s can accelerate from zero to 62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.7 seconds with the estate completing the same procedure in 4.9 seconds. All versions are mated exclusively to the company’s nine-speed automatic gearbox which offers shortened shift times to match the sporty character of the model while power is sent to all four wheels.
Customers also get -for the first time in the UK- the option of the 4Matic AWD in other versions of the C-Class, including the C 200 Coupe, the C 220d and C 250d.
The added traction and practicality of the 4Matic is priced at £1,500 over their rear-wheel drive equivalents, meaning the C 220d Sport 4Matic start at £36,025 with the Estate version asking for £37,225.
