Mercedes sets six-figure C43 price

Want an AMG-badged Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but don’t want to scare the neighbourhood’s dogs into a barking fit every time you start it up? The German luxury brand has announced pricing for the tamer Mercedes-AMG C43 4Matic, which starts from $101,900 for the sedan, $105,900 for the coupe, and $104,400 for the Estate. For that you get 270kW/520Nm of twin-turbo V6 hustle sent via a nine-speed auto to all four wheels – a first for the C-Class. Quick? The sedan will jump from 0-100km/h in a mere 4.7sec.
