2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® C 43 vs 2016 Mercedes-Benz C 450 AMG®

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® C 43 is the successor to the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C 450 AMG®. Although the two cars share many similarities, Mercedes-Benz made some changes beyond the numbers in the name to make the C 43 better in almost every way. To make the C 450 fit the Mercedes-Benz nomenclature layout, it needed some new technology to go along with its new title. Read on to find out why the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® C 43 is better than the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C 450 AMG®.

Neither the C 43, nor the C 450 AMG® get to be the flagship car for the C-Class lineup, but because of their relatively low prices, the C 43 will likely be the most popular model, just as the C 450 AMG® before it. Both models use the same 3.0L biturbo V6 engine, creating 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. The difference between the two engines will be how they are used. The C 43 features DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes that tell the engine how to operate depending on terrain and driver intent.

Before 2017, the C-Class was not available as a convertible. The introduction of this allows customers to get the AMG® experience without spending six figures and it gives the C-Class more character. It is more popular than the coupe and sedan versions despite the loss in handling associated with a topless car because of its new status and unique styling, but one of the biggest advantages the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® C 43 Cabriolet is the 9-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. This transmission makes the driving experience of the C-Class more comfortable, more thrilling, and more efficient, offering a huge advantage over the outgoing C 450 AMG®.
