Mercedes ups C-Class
MERCEDES-BENZ is introducing further models to the already extensive C-Class line-up.

The C 43 saloon and coupe can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds, while the estate takes 4.9 seconds.

Othe standard equipment on the C 43 includes Artico leather and Dinamica microfibre upholstery with red contrast stitching, 18-inch alloy wheels in black, black exterior mirror housings, and silver-painted brake callipers with AMG lettering.
