The Mercedes-AMG C43 is a trim of its own, so there are no trim levels within this range, per se. You only get one engine and transmission specification. This is the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with the 48-volt electric motor connected to a nine-speed automatic AMG Speedshift transmission and rear-biased 4Matic all-wheel drive. Optional features are few and far and are mostly bundled in packages. Standard specs for the Mercedes-AMG C43 include 18-inch alloy wheels, the 11.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with MBUX, Parktronic with active parking assist, AMG ride control with three-stage damping, a 64-color ambient lighting package, keyless-go smart remote keyless entry, and heated seats.
There are a fair amount of optional packages to be had in all Mercedes-AMG C43 models. Two AMG Night Package configurations include a series of black chrome elements for the exterior to give the performance sedan a sleeker overall presence. For a sportier look, you can consider the Carbon Fiber package. The Digital Light package upgrades the headlights to stronger adaptive LEDs. The Performance Seat Package Advanced fits the sports seats with memory function, AMG branding embossed on the headrest, chrome detailing, partial leather upholstery, and multi-contours with bolster adjustments. The Pinnacle Trim package is the most comprehensive when it comes to technological additions. This includes enhanced ambient lighting, a head-up display with AMG-specific readings, navigation powered by MBUX, inductive wireless charging for smartphones, the Burmester 3D surround sound system with music streaming, and augmented video capabilities.
