    You can’t discuss the ABCs of performance driving without AMG. The Mercedes AMG C 43 4MATIC is the kind of car drivers wake up early for to get curvy …

    so Benz do not name the cars after the engine anymore? It use to be the 43 mean 4.3 liter engine looks like not any more


    Great and thorough car review as always. I like the way the Sedan looks better than the Coupe. Would love to see a comparison review between the C63 AMG and the GLC 63 AMG.


    And in Canada we have the wagon! ๐Ÿ˜

    I own a 2017 C300 Coupe. Absolutely gorgeous, one of the most beautiful cars on the road. Love the exterior and interior. But I wouldn't buy another COMAND system Mercedes. With an MBUX system, I'd consider it (maybe).

    Thank you Tom!๐Ÿ˜Š
    Another great video review.๐Ÿ‘
    The antics at the end were an added bonus!๐Ÿ˜œ
    Good job!


    You could always close the trunks on powered trunks of Mercedes, at least the S-Classes as far back as 2001. I remember way back when I had my first S-Class I opened the powered trunk with the switch inside for someone outside and wondered if it would close it, if I pushed the rocker the other direction and it did, always a cool party trick.

    You are great

    I imagine the non amg rides better but is a second or two slower to 60?

    Keep up the good work Tom.

    Thanks guys! Your passion definitely shines through!

    Tom, I am a huge fan, but I'm a little disappointed that most of the car reviews you've done for the last several months are mostly luxury and/or hybrid. I'd certainly enjoy seeing you do more mainstream vehicles as part of the mix. Thanks.


    Not a fan of the car, great video though!


    C student? Tom, You're A+ to me! Appreciate the work you and your crew put in. ๐Ÿ‘

    Great video and great review…New SUB here!

    All of your efforts do NOT go unappreciated, Tom and crew! The AMG series in any Mercedes would, just for myself, be an occasional use vehicle (i.e. weekender). For my daily driving, I prefer a vehicle that is quiet and compliant with the various road surfaces and tire options. I really love the interior of this particular AMG!

    Congrats Tom your at 101k subscribers youโ€™ll be at 201k by next year watch and see !!!

    And the seat plastic thingy that pops out looks so cheap and plastic

    PD Lynch

    I always watch your videos more than once, there is so much packed in to one video. The photography alone takes a few passes to fully appreciate! Thank you to the Driven team, you guys rock!


    $75k? ๐Ÿฅด โ€” Great video as always, Tom! Thank you!


    Oh look!!!!!! a fake AMG!!!! Wooooohoooooo….. A big F you MB for milking the shit out of the AMG brand!

    Thanks for the review! I have the 2018 c43 and love it ๐Ÿ‘ as for subs, totally hear you on that. I have a career mentoring channel for recent grads and adults looking for a change and there are always production issues behind the scenes and my videos are no where as complicated as yours! Love your videos – itโ€™s got that old school vibe with a very modern touch. Great balance!

    Amazing drone shot over the corn at 3:43! How many takes did that take, lolz.
    Also: I know the chances are nil, but what about lifting off these horrible plastic engine covers and showing us the real guts? Can't stand those things.

    A performance variant that's a viable daily driver (four comfortable seats, etc.) is my sweet spot (I like the size much better than the E, or Tesla S) and I have thought this coupe or the C43 Sedan might have been just the one. Unfortunately I livie in an apartment so can't charge my electric at home.I drive a performance variant BMW 3 series from the good old days (2004) which I'm looking to replace with something roomier than my Porsche C4S. Would have wanted to know how this sweet car would have been as a daily driver: visibility? too firm a suspension? sounds like the sport exhaust is unnecessary but good that it is optional; is it as quiet as a C without the sport exhaust? P.S. Love Tom Voelk's reviews. The most sober and in a class with only one other great journalist, Dan Neil.


    I noticed that Tom's nose seemed grow after he informed us that he pulled C grades in HS! ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Also available as a wagon here in Canada… sorry USA ๐Ÿ™‚


    The 43s are not real amg cars.


    I would easily fit 5 packs of softness in the back.

    Hmm… That came out wrong :/

    Thank you Tom, Rob and Martin for your appreciated efforts.
    I have been watching and been a sub for a long time but don't normally comment.
    Thanks again for your efforts.


    Love the time and dedication that goes into the reviews itโ€™s professionally well done. Kudos for the Driven staff I greatly appreciate and enjoy the reviews. I can watch multiple times for reference also they never get old.

    Itโ€™s was fun to see the outtakes!
