Just the right stuff to keep it at the front

If Mercedes-Benz ever decided to make a greatest hits album, the C-Class would undoubtedly be one of the top tracks. Originally offered in the early ’90s as a replacement for the Mercedes-Benz 190 series, the C-Class is framed as the German brand’s entry-level luxury four-door compact. A second generation arrived in 2000, followed by a third-gen in 2007 and a fourth-gen in 2014. Now, as the fourth-gen C-Class enters its fifth year of production, it takes a spot in Merc’s lineup as the brand’s best-selling model, moving a total of 415,000 units in markets worldwide last year. That’s a huge volume for a single model. As such, Mercedes is looking to keep it feeling as fresh as possible, and will give it a slew of new updates to keep buyers coming back for more. The latest includes tweaked exterior styling, an updated interior, new infotainment gear, new safety and assistance tech, and even an extra splash of power as well. All good stuff, if you ask us.

The latest 2019 model year for the C-Class will appear in the metal for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, where Merc will also pull the sheets on the new A-Class, the new G-Class, and the new AMG GT Coupe. While a full generational changeover is expected in a few years’ time, this new model definitely keeps that old C-Class magic we’ve come to expect, while also adding all the extra goodies needed to keep it in the running with the competition. Read on for the details, and make sure to check back here for the full rundown when the C-Class drops in Geneva.

Can The Toyota GR Supra Shame The Mercedes-AMG C63 S In A Drag Race?

The Toyota GR Supra is known to punch above its weight, but the Mercedes AMG C63 S packs a lot of grunt - will it prove too much for the Supra?

Lately, it seems like it’s Toyota GR Supra against the world, as the car is constantly being pitted against other, more powerful vehicles. What’s impressive is that the Supra tends to come out on top, even when pitted against V-8-powered vehicles. Speaking of V-8s, YouTube channel Sam CarLegion has managed to secure a Mercedes AMG C63 S Coupe in order to go up against the GR Supra. Will it win or will it become part of the statistics?

The Nissan Z’s Twin-Turbo V-6 Packs Serious Grunt. This Infiniti Q60 3.0t Proves It By Schooling The C43 AMG

It’s another drag and roll race series, courtesy of YouTube channel Sam CarLegion. This time, it’s between two very unusual rivals – an Infiniti Q60 (not) RedSport and a Mercedes C43 AMG. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine in the Infiniti was adopted by the new Nissan Z, so this will give us a good idea of how it stacks up to some other performance coupes, performance-wise. Moreover, both cars run a stock tune (RS tune for the Infiniti) and a Stage 2 tune.

Mercedes came up with an AMG C63 Black Series almost a decade back. The team at Carwow brought it to the drag strip to take on an F80 BMW M3. Both these vehicles, however, are tuned and make 1,450 horses combined. While the BMW features a pair of hybrid turbos, the Mercedes features a supercharged under the hood.

The hottest version of the W206 C Class is already a fact. Although not on sale yet, a test car has been spotted during cold-weather testing. The test car features a similar full-body camouflage as the Mercedes AMG C63 Wagon, from not long ago. We already know that the next generation of AMG models will no longer use the glorious V-8 engine layout, they were known and loved for. The now-former AMG boss Tobias Moers, also expressed his displease with the way things are developing, even going as far as to quit AMG. All this begs the question, how much of an AMG will the new C63 be?

Mercedes Has a Good Reason For Only Offering A Four-Cylinder In the New C-Class

Since last year, we’ve been getting reports that the next-generation C63 AMG will feature an inline-four. This transition marks the beginning of the end for the hand-built AMG V-8 engines that we all know and love. Needless to say, such a decision raised more than a few eyebrows. AMG’s now-former CEO, Tobias Moers, stepped down from his position a few weeks after the meeting that sealed the C63’s fate. His work with AMG is not entirely done, however, since he is now the CEO of Aston Martin. As we know the British brand has struck a deal with Mercedes to use some of its technology. This includes the AMG 4.0-liter V-8 unit, which will probably be the swan song for Affalterbach’s V-8 rumble.

Cadillac is back in the performance game with the CT4-V Blackwing.

Main entries in this market include the BMW M3, Mercedes-AMG C63, and Audi RS4. The latter is not available in the U.S., so the Blackwing will face competition from BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes-Benz has been offering AMG versions of the C-Class ever since its compact sedan adopted the letter C in 1993. At first it was the C36 AMG, but the modern version goes by the name AMG C63 and it’s also available in a more powerful S version.

It’s pretty obvious that the 2020 AMG C63 S is superior to the original C-Class AMG in every department, but how does it compare to the previous-generation, 2013-model-year variant? The folks over at Throttle House brought these cars together to find out.

This fan renderings are fun, but is there any accuracy here?

On the market since 2014, the current Mercedes C-Class is far from fresh. With the various prototype sightings over the past couple of years, we know that 2021 will be the year for the fifth-gen model, but something we’ve yet to see is a prototype for the range-toping AMG C63 sedan. The C63 is billed as one of the most aggressive sports sedans on the market, and with very few rivals to compete with, Mercedes-AMG has to remain vigilant when it comes to how the car is perceived. As such, this rendering that we’re about to show you is likely a fairly accurate representation of what the C63 is actually going to look like.

The M139 four-banger is on the verge of reshaping the Mercedes-AMG lineup as we know it

The new M139 four-cylinder turbocharged engine that powers the new Mercedes-AMG A45 is a prime candidate to replace the 4.0-liter bi-turbo V-8 powerhouse found under the hood of the Mercedes-AMG C63 super-sedan, with a little help from the wonder of electricity. As a result, the next-generation 2022 C63 will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbo engine boosted by a 48-volt electric system - and before you start frowning, get this: the new powertrain will be just as potent as the V-8 and then some.

Big changes are expected to come for the Mercedes’ C-Class family now that the updated model is nearing its expected launch timetable of 2021. But just as the facelifted C-Class will arrive with plenty of changes and modifications, so too will the model’s lineup of sinister AMG alter egos.

The stakes are different, sure, but there are no two models that are linked to one another than the 3 Series and the C-Class. It’s fitting, too, that just as Mercedes unveiled the 2019 C-Class a few months ago, it didn’t take BMW long to roll out the next-generation 3 Series.

As if building some of the world’s most refined cars isn’t enough, Mercedes is jumping into the baby mobility business with the launch of the Avantgarde baby stroller. Developed in collaboration with German stroller company Hartan, the Avantgarde is the kind of stroller you’d want your baby to ride in you want to introduce him or her to a life of luxury before they even have a chance to walk on their own two feet. Neither Mercedes nor Hartan have indicated the price for the stroller, but a Russian site called Kinderpram is taking orders for a tidy sum of 82,400 руб. That’s around $1,300 based on current exchange rates.

How usable is the back seat of small luxury coupes?

How usable is the back seat of small luxury coupes?

Some can carry people in the back, others just pretend they do

All sub-$50,000 luxury grand touring coupes these days have a seating capacity of four, which means they can theoretically carry two additional people in the rear. The manufacturers usually show a smiling young couple blasting through the countryside in the press photos, and rarely, if ever, four people having a blast. In fact, you wouldn’t even know there were people in the back of most of the cars on the list below.

There are five names on it: the names of the five most important models in the segment and the purpose is to compare their ability to cosset rear occupants... or not, as the case may be. Spoiler alert, none of them are particularly apt at doing it, even though they do have actual full-sized back seats, but if you were to pick yours based on this alone, this is how they stack up - I’ve arranged them in order from least to most spacious.

A spin in the Mercedes-AMG C43 Cabriolet is definitely enough to show you just how capable AMG is of making a satisfying car. Don’t think for a second that this is a brute you wouldn’t be able to tame. It is not. Actually, the impressions I gathered driving the AMG C43 Cabriolet are dramatically different than I ever imagined them to be. See, AMG always stands for brutality and uncompromised driving performance in my head. The C43, while definitely packing some of those virtues, isn’t like that. Set it in Comfort, lower the roof, let Barry White cuddle your eardrums, and you have yourself a cruiser worthy of the Cote d’Azur. That is actually where I drove it as part of the #blackchili Continental driving experience. Yup, we tested their new tires and basically enjoyed three days in luxury, but I snitched a short test drive of this beauty as well. I had to.

Continental AG invited me to spend three days in Nice, France, drive really nice cars, experience its #blackchili driving experience and gorge on vine and fish of all kinds prepared by some of the best chefs around.

I said yes.

This is what I saw, drove and experienced there.

1,780 horsepower worth of cars were parked down the alley of a hotel with a golf course. All of them were white, all of them had OEM Continental tires on them. UUHP tires, mind you. That is short for Ultra Ultra High Performance and all of them had striking, yet subtle Continental decals. Right from the get-go, it was clear this wasn’t going to be a classic journalist driving event. It was more of a celebration and a party. I liked it.

The weather was at nice 78 degrees Fahrenheit, without a single cloud on the perfectly blue sky over the Cote d’Azur. Down at that parking - 10 cars - two Mercedes-AMG C43 Cabrios, two BMW M240i xDrive Convertibles, two Porsche 718 Boxsters, two Tesla Model Ss, and two Audi RS3 Sportbacks.

FYI, the Porsche was the least powerful one there. And when the Porsche is the least powerful at a car event, things are off to a good start.

With The Power Of The Ferrari 812 Superfast

Mercedes-AMG made a revolution with the introduction of the 4.0-liter, turbocharged, V-8. This engine, with its many states of tune, made it in so many cars within the Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG lineup that I almost lost count. The most dramatic discrepancy for its use, at least for me, is with the Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4 and the Mercedes-AMG GT R. These two are opposites but they both feature the same engine.

However, Mercedes-AMG did a favor to the world with this V-8. It ended up in the Mercedes C-Class as well. Its most potent form at that. The tuners flew over the AMG C63 S as vultures seizing the opportunity to create a supercar out of a four-door drift happy saloon. This is the latest in the line of awesome works on the Mercedes-AMG C63 S. It comes from G-Power, a company who made a fortune tuning BMWs. Now, it’s AMGs turn.

In the time since, the C-Class has grown to become Merc’s best-selling nameplate, with a plethora of model variants on the table to entice a swath of different customers. However, those looking for maximum headspace are encouraged to check out the drop-top cabriolet model, which just saw a refresh for the current fourth-generation W205 at the 2018 New York International Auto Show. Dropping alongside the new hard-top coupe, the latest C-Class Cab gets many of the same upgrades as the four-door and wagon that debuted before it, including a tweaked exterior style, new digital options for the interior, and extra ponies under the hood.

The New Mercedes C300 de Plug-in Hybrid to Deliver as Much Torque as an AMG C63

It can go higher but the transmission won’t handle it

Ever since it arrived at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the new Mercedes C-Class has been a regular topic of discussion in the auto industry. It’s tagged as a “facelift,” but it actually falls under the category of an all-new model given the number of changes it’s had compared to its predecessor. One of those changes is the addition of a diesel hybrid model, which will most likely be referred to as the “C 300 de.” It’s an unconventional move to fit a diesel with an electric motor, but it’s all part of the Mercedes experience. One of the features of this diesel hybrid powertrain is its torque output, something Mercedes says reaches 516 pound-feet of torque, exactly the same amount of torque that the AMG C 63 has.

It even has 25,000 new components, which is a lot for an all-new model, let alone one that’s in the middle of its life cycle. What it doesn’t have, though, is the automaker’s new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system.

The Mercedes C-Class is not getting an all-electric version anytime soon. Mercedes still plans to release a similar-sized, zero-emission model, but it will be badged as an EQ model. The C-Class will still be offered as a hybrid and plug-in hybrid in the future but, as far as an all-electric C-Class is concerned, don’t count on it happening anytime soon.

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe And Cab Unveiled

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe And Cab Unveiled

Fresh tech and some extra ponies

Mercedes-Benz just unveiled its latest AMG C43 Coupeand Cabmodels ahead of their official debut in the Big Apple.

The exterior gains a new twin-louver AMG grille and tweaked fascia styling, as well as updates to the bumper and chrome tailpipes. There are also new AMG wheels in the corners, which were optimized to better cut through the atmosphere at speed.

Moving to the cabin, there’s an optional 12.3-inch fully digital cockpit display and an AMG steering wheel to help drivers get a grip, with Dynamica microfiber and aluminum making the materials list. The optional AMG Performance seats will help hold passengers in place, while the Cab model gets an AirScarf neck heater as standard.

Further customization options include the choice between ash, walnut, and oak trim, as well as that good ‘ole go-to composite, carbon fiber.

An AMG-tuned turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 powerplant resides under the hood, with output rated at 385 horsepower. That’s 23 horses more than before, by the way. Torque goes unchanged at 384 pound-feet between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm. Properly applied, the run to 60 mph takes around 4.5 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 130 mph.

A nine-speed automatic transmission and AMG Performance 4Matic AWD system with rear torque-bias rounds out the drivetrain. Adaptive dampers arrive as standard spec, as does AMG speed-sensitive steering.

The fresh C now heads to the 2018 New York International Auto Show to strut its stuff in the metal. Sales will kick off later this year.

2019 Mercedes-AMG C43

Refreshed with new turbos and the latest tech stuff

Mercedes-Benz first introduced the C-Class nameplate in 1993 for the 1994 model year, offering it up as a compact luxury replacement for the outgoing 190 E. Since then, the C-Class has grown to become the most popular model in the Merc stable, no doubt thanks in part to sales of the pumped-up performance-oriented versions from AMG, which include the 43 series that launched in 2015. Now, there’s a refresh on the table for the go-faster C-Class, and it’s bringing extra power and new tech to the fight.

The Mercedes-AMG C43 to Show Off a Fresh Look and More Power in Geneva

Updated trim and 23 more horsepower are on the docket

Introduced in 2015 to bridge the gap between the C300 and the full-blown AMG C63, the AMG C43 brings together the usual AMG goodies inside and out and a smaller V-6 engine (instead of a V-8) for improved fuel economy. Although it’s not as powerful or as fast as the C63, the C43 has become a popular option among enthusiasts that want an AMG with daily driving skills. With the 2018 Geneva Motor Show just around the corner, Mercedes-Benz is introducing a facelift to both the sedan and wagon versions of the slightly beefed-up C-Class.

Comparison: 2017 Mercedes C-Class vs 2018 Mercedes C-Class

Can you tell them apart?

When it was unveiled back in 2014, the W205-generation C-Class redefined the premium compact market with its sporty exterior design and exquisite interior layout. Based on the larger S-Class, which was still new back then, the C-Class made the BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4 look old and dated. The fact that the two were three and seven years old in 2014 also helped the C-Class become the king of the luxury compact market instantly. But things have changed since them. Audi launched a new A4 in 2015, while BMW updated the 3 Series for the 2016 model year and it’s getting ready to launch a new-generation model in 2018. The C-Class is no longer that far ahead, so Mercedes gave its four-door a makeover.

On top of the usual exterior design changes, the C-Class was updated with new features and technology inside the cabin. Highlights include a new digital display for all models and a standard seven-inch screen for the lower-spec versions. Mercedes also added touch-sensitive buttons on the steering wheels, and new driver assist features that make the car semi-autonomous, just like in the bigger E-Class and S-Class models. Of course, exterior changes are an important part of a facelift, so let’s see what makes the upgraded model stand out in the comparison below.

2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Just the right stuff to keep it at the front

If Mercedes-Benz ever decided to make a greatest hits album, the C-Class would undoubtedly be one of the top tracks. Originally offered in the early ’90s as a replacement for the Mercedes-Benz 190 series, the C-Class is framed as the German brand’s entry-level luxury four-door compact. A second generation arrived in 2000, followed by a third-gen in 2007 and a fourth-gen in 2014. Now, as the fourth-gen C-Class enters its fifth year of production, it takes a spot in Merc’s lineup as the brand’s best-selling model, moving a total of 415,000 units in markets worldwide last year. That’s a huge volume for a single model. As such, Mercedes is looking to keep it feeling as fresh as possible, and will give it a slew of new updates to keep buyers coming back for more. The latest includes tweaked exterior styling, an updated interior, new infotainment gear, new safety and assistance tech, and even an extra splash of power as well. All good stuff, if you ask us.

The latest 2019 model year for the C-Class will appear in the metal for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, where Merc will also pull the sheets on the new A-Class, the new G-Class, and the new AMG GT Coupe. While a full generational changeover is expected in a few years’ time, this new model definitely keeps that old C-Class magic we’ve come to expect, while also adding all the extra goodies needed to keep it in the running with the competition. Read on for the details, and make sure to check back here for the full rundown when the C-Class drops in Geneva.

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Unveiled

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Unveiled

A few nips and tucks for the Teutonic standard

As if it weren’t already obvious from the vast quantity of examples seen on the road, the current generation of the C-Class compact four-door is officially the German brand’s best-selling model, moving as many as 417,000 units worldwide last year. Now, there’s a new model on the horizon, and it’s promising refreshed goods inside and out.

Let’s start with the stuff outside, where the high-powered AMG-spec’d models make their presence known thanks to a diamond grille fitted in front as standard, plus a new front apron and a rear diffuser for the 2019 model year. The rest of the line includes a bevy of silver and chrome trim, as well as halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights. Options include full-LED headlights, which also include goodies like “High Performance” elements with an “Ultra Range” high beam. The exterior paint options now throw in shades like Mojave silver metallic and emerald green metallic, while standard 17-inch wheels are found in the corners.

Step inside, and you’ll find an interior layout that looks more or less identical to the outgoing model, but Merc swears it’s updated for 2019, and includes a redesign for the center console. Optional interior materials include open-pore brown walnut trim and open-pore anthracite oak, while new interior color schemes include magma grey and black, plus saddle brown for the AMG line. There’s also a new multi-contour seat package which allows for individually adjustable side bolsters and lumbar support, as well as a massaging effect.

In terms of tech, the new C-Class is offered with a fully digital instrument display taken from the S-Class, and complete with three individual viewing modes. Standard spec throws a 5.5-inch display in between the gauges, but with the full digital option, you get a 12.3-inch screen instead. The center screen on the dash measures in at 7.0 inches as standard, but there’s also a high-resolution 10.25-inch screen if you’re willing to pay a bit more. Further features include touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel, a Qi wireless phone charging system, and the optional Comand Online navigation system.

Mercedes says the C-Class can “drive semi-autonomously in certain situations,” and includes optional features like Active Distance Assist, Active Lane Change Assist, Active Steering Assist, and Active Emergency Stop Assist. Active Brake Assist is standard.

Motivation is once again derived from a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which gets up-rated in the latest 2019 model year to produce as much as 255 horsepower. A 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission routes the power aft as standard, with AWD offered as an available option.

Pricing will be announced in March when the C-Class makes its formal debut at the Geneva International Motor Show. Look for the first batch to arrive hot off the presses in August.

2017 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Estate By Vath

2017 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Estate By Vath

German tuner gives Mercedes wagon power for days

Estate vehicles, or wagons as we like to call them, aren’t supposed to do 211 mph. It’s just one of those things that don’t happen as far as automakers are concerned. But the car tuning world is a different story, and we see a good example of that with Vath’s latest tuning program for the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Estate.

A lot of us are familiar with Vath’s work in the past, especially when it comes to Mercedes-AMG models. It has put in work to develop kits for the AMG SL 65, AMG C 450, and the sedan version of the AMG C 63. Heck, it’s even worked on the previous version of the AMG C 63 Estate. To say that Vath knows what it’s doing with Mercedes-AMG models is an accurate portrayal of the tuner’s abilities, and we see those abilities on full display once again with its new program for the meaty estate. Pick a section of the AMG E 63, and there’s a chance that Vath has something for it. The estate’s exterior? Check. Interior? Check on that too. Drivetrain? You better believe it. There are even “miscellaneous items” on the table, just in case you’re in the mood to get those. This is the kind of comprehensive tuning program that Vath has built its name on. There may be more popular tuning firms in the world out there, but when it comes to quality Mercedes-AMG tunes, few are as consistently good as Vath.
