2019 C-Class AMG

2019 C-Class AMG

A tweak here and there, a new nine-speed auto and style that’s superbly classy, the 2019 Mercedes Benz C-Class AMG models really will take your breath away.  Climb aboard one of these and you’ve gotten inside one of the class leaders.  It’s a sports luxury sedan or coupe with oodles of power and stunning control.  2019 sees the biggest upgrade in the AMG C-Class sports cars to be the new nine-speed automatic gearbox, which now offers quicker shifts with that trademark Mercedes smoothness.  Taking a closer look reveals how awesome this new AMG C-Class has become.

Life gets exciting in a new AMG C43 or C63 coupe or sedan.  The raucous soundtracks that both engines deliver quicken the heart beat and excite the drive.  There’s no doubting that a drive through the city streets in a new AMG C-Class draws admiring looks your way.  Gorgeous flowing lines are pumped and muscular, with a low, wide profile to dial-up the heartbeat.  Angled DRLs border the large chrome bar across the grill, and in the centre of the grille is that very familiar bold three point star.  The headlights get multi-beam LED treatment, and around the back the taillights get more angular light beams.  C63 AMG models get vertical chrome inserts for the grille.  Bigger air dam vents create a punchier look to the car’s front, while the new air splitters and skirts are very smart.  There are twin tailpipes at each corner giving the car an even more powerful appearance.  The car measures over 4.6 metres in length, and it’s low and wide stance make a big performance statement.

2019 C-Class AMG Interior

Inside, the sports leather interior is lavish and elegant, and the build quality superb.  The classy central large digital display touchscreen has all the mod cons and looks very modern and stylish mounted in the central dash area.  Seated behind the steering wheel is the large digital driver’s display for the driver’s infotainment requirements.  You can select different styles accordingly even via switches on the steering wheel.  A multi-purpose, lovely-to-hold steering wheel houses plenty of controls, which includes controls for the infotainment system, while the familiar three air vents look eye-catching above the centre console.  Zoned climate control air-conditioning is a very favoured feature in what is a hot drive.

The seats are really comfortable and boast strong side bolster adjustment for those moments when you’re going to corner at insane speeds.  There is a nice analogue clock in the centre of the dash and the aluminium trimmings against soft black fascia panels look fantastic.  New AMG C63 S versions have all the sporty trimmings and features both inside and out.

Filling a set of big shoes, the alloys are wide and well-dressed.  A massive paw print on the road makes for awesome handling, and the RWD set-up obliges with accurate surefooted athleticism even when things get a little hairy in the wet.  The 2019 AMG C-Class is pure joy to drive quickly.  The car is equipped with Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes for the suspension settings.  You can also turn off or fiddle with traction control levels for an even more involving drive.

There are numerous new safety features, and it might sound simple but the adjustable headlights work a treat and the Polar white exterior colour scheme is really visible at dusk.  But if you want any other exterior colour scheme you will have to pay extra – not so cool!  Five star safety is in writing.

Start your engines!  The new C-Class AMG cars are very quick but it’s also the engine sound that is every bit as exciting.  Everybody will know you’re coming if you gas the right foot.  Coupes look a little sportier than the sedan alternatives.  I think it’s just the long two door styling which gives the sportier edge.  On the road, both the sedan and coupes are quick, and they feel well hunkered down in the corners.  An electronically controlled limited slip differential does wonders for finding grip where other systems wont.  Large carbon ceramic brakes do a magnificent job of slowing you down quickly from speed.

2019 C-Class AMG

2019 Mercedes Benz C43 AMG models get the uprated 3.0-litre V6 Biturbo petrol engine for dishing out the performance punch.  With 290 kW, you’re never lacking in get-up-and-go.  Passing manoeuvres are over in a jiffy, and the effortless cruising ability is GT-like.  As much as 520 Nm of torque is available from 2500 rpm.  The 0-100 km/h can be finished in less than 5 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 250 km/h.

Under the bonnet of the new Mercedes Benz C-Class AMG C63 is a hand-built V8 twin-turbo with 375 kW.  This has the goods for a sub 4 second 0-100 km/h sprint.  Masses of grip, launch control, AWD, adjustable suspension, a limited 250 km/h top speed – and what you have here is the premium mid-size motorway bruiser.
