2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 Spy Shots Spotted Testing with Light Camouflage. The prototype of the updated version of Mercedes AMG C43 sedan was recently spotted, covered with light camouflage. Since 2017 model year, C43 replaced C45 in the C-Class lineup. And, it shocked the world with its low starting price of $50,000.
The updated AMG C43 will come as 2019 model year. And, it is not the only getting new updates. As a matter of fact, Mercedes is currently refreshed its popular C-Class since this series that was first introduced as 2015 model year will reach its midlife cycle point very soon.
2019 Mercedes AMG C43 Specifications
Redesign of Interior and Exterior
Judging from the amount of camouflage covering the prototype ( navigate to motorauthority.com website to see actual spy shot) , it is safe to say that the refreshed AMG sedan will only receive minor styling updates. The camouflage only includes the front and rear bumpers. So, it seems like the biggest tweaks will come in those areas, at least for now.
Besides the restyled front and rear bumpers, we can see from the 2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 spy shots that the prototype boasts new grille design as well accompanied by twin blade design. Furthermore, even though it is not shown in the prototype yet, maybe the car will also get new wheels and exhaust tip design.
Unfortunately, the interior design is not showed in the spy shots. However, we definitely can expect some light updates in the cabin as well. Our best bet is a new digital instrument cluster just like what we have seen in E-Class and other more expensive series. If Mercedes is not generous enough to give the digital instrument cluster as standard, at least it will be probably available to be optioned.
Engine Spec — 2019 Mercedes-AMG C43
There is no information yet whether the refreshed AMG C43 sedan 2019 will receive new powertrain or will retain the same engine with the current model. Right now, the current AMG C43, just like another model in 43 families, is powered by a 3.0 L V-6 engine that belts out 365 HP (272 kW).

As we know, Mercedes is currently replacing the old V6 with a brand new inline-six engine with a turbocharger as well as a light hybrid battery power as the electric component, especially in the current S-Class. It will be good if AMG C43 and the other updated C-Class can receive the same treatment but the possibility is not that high.
Hence the cars probably will be equipped with the same powertrain. Besides, it seems like the refreshed C-Class will not get a significant bump of power even with the new engine. Maybe we have to wait until the new generation arrives to see the new inline-six engine in the C-Class lineup.
2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 Release Date and PRICE
There is no exact debut date yet. But, the new 2019 Mercedes AMG C43 sedan probably will be launched in the second half of 2017 or early 2018 together with the standard C-Class. After the sedan, it is reported that the updated sports wagon will be released soon as well. Even though the details about the new AMG-C43 sedan are still vague right now, we can expect more updates and even new spy shots very soon.
