Mercedes Brings Updated C-Class To Geneva, C43 Leads The Way

The C-Class remains one of Mercedes‘ best-selling models, and now, after a recent update, it’s more S-Classy than ever.

For some, the C-Class was always meant to be a sportier and more compact (a lot more compact) S-Class, a philosophy that also carried with it a smaller price tag. Now, by shoving even more technology into their facelifted sports saloon, Mercedes have basically future-proofed it until BMW comes out with their new-generation 3-Series.

The changes are of course subtle, yet also significant, depending on which aspects of a car interest you most. For example, if the updated headlights don’t tickle your fancy, then perhaps the available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster will, thanks to its high resolution of 1920×720 pixels.

Other changes inside include the new steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons, an updated touchpad, updated head-up display and the optional 10.25-inch infotainment system, to go with improved voice control and a few new additions to its active safety systems.

When it comes to performance, focusing on the C43 4MATIC version should definitely help, as it too has been upgraded for the 2019MY. It now has 23 more horses than before, bringing the total to 390 PS, coming from its 3.0-liter twin turbocharged V6, along with 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque.

The Mercedes-AMG C43 is capable of sprinting to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds if you opt for the sedan, and 4.8 seconds if your cup of tea is the Estate version.
