For 2019, the C63s are available as a base model and a sportier S-version for performance fans. All engines are mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Mercedes says the transmission has been recalibrated with "defined ignition adjustments" that ensure quicker upshifts, giving the C63 S Coupe the ability to accelerate from 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 290km/h.
"The AMG C-Class is our best-selling model series and therefore a key cornerstone of our company's success of recent years", says Moers. We have therefore increasingly expanded our C-Class offer: customers can now choose between twelve models from the C-Class family globally. Like the rest of the C Class family, the C63 has gained a new face with updated interior tidbits.
Elsewhere, the C63 picks-up the latest-generation AMG three-spoke, flat-bottomed steering wheel with touch pad controllers for the instrument cluster (left) and multimedia system (right). "The perfected driving dynamics and expressive design underscore the powerful, muscular character of the rear-wheel drive icon".
Key among the upgrades is a new-look front-end that adopts AMG's new signature Panamericana-inspired grille with a series of vertical slats and redesigned fins in the outer air intakes, which Mercedes claims gives the auto an even stronger aesthetic.
The outer air inlets of the bumper have been widened and are flanked by tweaked LED headlights that curve above them. At the rear the updates are smaller with new twin tailpipes and a restyled rear diffuser.
Inside C63 owners will find a new steering wheel with a flat-bottom and a larger infotainment display that houses the brand's new MBUX system. The new C 63 AMG, which comes in two trim option - standard and "S", and comes with some considerable design and cosmetic updates and some new features as well. The center console features a standard floating display that measures 10.25-inches. Its specification also includes AMG Ride Control as standard; this adjustable damper system can adjust its set-up between three configurations - Comfort, Sport and Sport+ - depending on how relaxed or focused the driver wants the chassis to feel. There are also four agility functions that include Basic, Advanced, Pro, and Master that can make the C63 as mild or wild as your skill set allows.
