2018 Mercedes-AMG C43 4MATIC
20 mpg city / 27 mpg hwy / 23 mpg combined
One of two high-performance versions of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class compact sedan, coupe and convertible, the AMG C43 derives motivation from a twin-turbocharged AMG 3.0-liter V6 engine producing 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque from 2000 to 4200 rpm. Power is delivered through an AMG-enhanced 9-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel drive with a torque split of 31 percent front / 69 percent rear. The AMG C43 sedan and coupe are both rated at 27 mpg highway, with the AMG convertible coming in at 26 mpg highway. The top-line AMG C63 sedan is powered by an AMG twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 producing up to 503 horsepower, but it didn’t quite make the cut since it rates at 24 mpg highway.
