German luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz has launched the AMG C43 Coupe in India at Rs 75 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Essentially a two-door coupe based on the C-Class with the AMG treatment from Affalterbach, the latest-gen C43 Coupe was introduced globally last year and comes to India as a CBU.

In its current avatar, the C43 Coupe gets a new AMG radiator grille with twin silver chrome slats, flanked by redesigned LED headlamps with DRLs on top and large air dams on the bumper. It gets 19-inch AMG alloys for that sporty appeal and the coupe roofline blends seamlessly with the boot to give it a sleek silhouette. At the back, it gets a striking rear diffuser and two round twin tailpipes to match the performance it packs.

The new AMG C43 Coupe is powered by the same 3.0-litre V6 engine that was used in the C43 4MATIC sedan earlier sold in India, but in a different state of tune. This engine now makes 390PS (23PS more) of power and 520Nm of torque and comes mated to a 9-speed AMG Speedshift gearbox. It also gets 4MATIC all-wheel drive with rear-biased 31:69 power distribution, along with AMG’s three-stage adjustable suspension damping from its elder sibling AMG C63. The C43 can do a 0-100kmph run in just 4.7 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph.

On the inside, the C43 boasts of a specially crafted AMG steering wheel wrapped in Nappa leather along with ergonomically positioned touch-control buttons. It also gets a head-up display and a massive all-digital 12.3-inch instrumentation cluster, with ‘Classic’, ‘Progressive’ and ‘Sporty’ modes.
