The two-bar grille design here was previously only used for V8-powered AMGs and the 45 models, but the C43 wears it for 2019.

The C43's all-wheel-drive system sends 31 percent of engine torque to the front wheels and 69 percent to the rear for lively handling.

The sports exhaust is loud, crackling and snarling when turned to the "Powerful" mode.

The AMG C43 is much quicker and more invigorating than the C300, but not as wild (or as expensive) as the C63.
