12.3-inch Touchscreen Multimedia Display
The interior of the Mercedes-AMG C43 Saloon AMG 4Matic Premium Plus is impressive, with the massive 12.3-Inch Touchscreen Multimedia Display just sitting right in front of the Driver’s seat.
A cutting-edge wide-screen display makes the interior look very modern. Easy access to a world of features, including sound, mobile, and vehicle configuration, is also a standard in the new C43 Saloon.
Heated Front Seats
While the THERMATIC automatic climate control maintains a cozy atmosphere inside the cabin at all times, the front seats are individually provided with a heating option when colder days are experienced.
Each passenger has the luxury of choosing between three heating levels with just a push of a button on the center console.
Seat Comfort Package
With the Seat Comfort Package, you’ll quickly find a comfortable seating position ideally suited to your individual needs. It packs the front seats with plenty of electric and manual adjustment options that cater to the particular need of drives and front passengers in terms of body and comfort.
AMG Sports Seats
To further enhance the quality inside, the new C43 Saloon is equipped with performance seats that are AMG-specific, taking inspiration from racing deeply contoured car seats.
The seats are partnered side bolsters that can be power-adjusted and configured according to their body and seating position—featuring integrated head restraints and AMG badges for that combination of luxurious comfort and sports-style.
For the upholstery, a two-tone leather titanium grey pearl/black with red contrasting topstitching is used.
With the added wireless charging feature, you can go through the day without worrying about your phone battery. Just place your phone at the charging dock to start charging; your phone will still be charged during your drive and will be ready to use at the end of your trip.
Multifunction Steering Wheel
Bringing style and extra comfort to the driver as it comes with galvanized gearshift paddles in a neat Nappa leather with contrasting topstitching in red and buttons allotted for various command functions.

Exterior of the Mercedes-AMG C43 Saloon AMG 4Matic Premium Plus
Diamond Grille with integrated Star
This is where the Mercedes-AMG C43 Saloon AMG 4Matic Premium Plus exudes its power and strength—displaying crafted single louvers in matte iridium silver with ‘AMG’ lettering.
The grille showcases a massive Mercedes emblem sitting right in front, which ultimately presents what Mercedes could offer.
Panoramic Sliding Sunroof
A feature exclusive for the Premium Plus package, this panoramic sunroof allows extra light and air to enter the cabin with its massive yet functional glass sunroof.
Besides sliding over, it also includes a tilt position that can be optioned in three stages.
Electrically Adjustable and Folding Exterior Mirrors
Exterior mirrors can now be adjusted and moved electrically in and out without getting off your car through this feature.
It conveniently helps prevent damage to the exterior mirror housing when caught in a complicated and small space.
The exterior mirror’s auto-dimming feature on the driver’s side and the inside rear-view mirror is also part of the package. The driver can make these adjustments quickly with just a press of a button.
18-inch AMG Forged Alloy Wheels
18-inch AMG forged alloy wheels come standard as this Saloon strives for a more athletic exterior. This type of wheel is different from typical alloy wheels, as it is manufactured to achieve more robust and better performance through forging.
With its tight grain structure, it claims to be mechanically stronger and more resistant to wear.
MULTIBEAM LED Headlamps
MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are a combination of all the best lighting innovations in one, such as light functions that are anti-dazzle, anticipatory, and navigation-assisted.
This type of headlamps responds to the surrounding light conditions more rapidly and more reliably and the light in the opposite direction coming from the vehicle.
The MULTIBEAM LED illuminates the road much clearer in any weather conditions than conventional headlamps, without blinding other drivers. Thus, ensuring a much safer driving experience.
Using the rearview camera, reverse parking and maneuvering are considerably more straightforward and smoother.
When reverse gear is engaged, it is activated automatically and displays the vehicle (with dynamic guidelines) on the central monitor. The media display’s dynamic guidelines give drivers a clear orientation when maneuvering.

History of the Mercedes-AMG C43 Saloon AMG 4Matic Premium Plus
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a Daimler AG line of compact executive cars. Launched in 1993 as a replacement for the 190 (W201) series, the C-Class was the smallest model in the company’s line-up until the W168 A-Class introduction in 1997. At the Mercedes-Benz satellite plants in Sindelfingen and Bremen, Germany, and various satellite plants in other countries, Mercedes developed the C-Class.
On 1 June 1993, the Mercedes produced the first C-Class (W202) sedan, and on 18 July 2000, the first second-generation (W203) rolled off the assembly line. Since 2002, the C-Class has been available with a 4MATIC option (i.e., four-wheel drive). The third generation (W204) was introduced in 2007, while Mercedes launched the new C-Class (W205) generation in 2014.
In 2000, although initially available as a sedan and a station wagon, the W203 series debuted a fastback coupé (SportCoupé) variant that became the Mercedes-Benz CLC-Class when face-lifted. The CLC-Class remained in production until 2011 when it was replaced for the 2012 model year by a new W204 C-Class coupé.
On 10 December 2009, Daimler disclosed that C-Class manufacturing would be centralized at the Bremen factory, with additional domestic production in the United States.
On 16 December 2013, Mercedes publicly unveiled the car. W205 production began at the plant in Bremen on 4 February 2014. Mercedes-Benz plants in East London (South Africa), Iracemápolis (Brazil), and Tuscaloosa, Alabama (United States) are also in development. In March 2014, European sales began, while the vehicle went on sale in September 2014 in North America.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class 205 chassis delivered four C-Class body styles; Sedan (W205), Wagon (S205), Coupe (C205), and Cabriolet (A205). A new look has been given to the W205 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which made its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, including exterior improvements and new engines.
Mercedes unveiled its new generation, the W205 C-Class, at the North American International Auto Show 2014. It is the first model to utilize the all-new Modular Rear Architecture (MRA) platform, which it shares with the modern Mercedes-Benz E-Class and S-Class prototypes. The new structure is significantly lighter, using aluminum and high strength steel throughout the body, resulting in a 100-kilogram (220 lb) weight decrease
