A hybrid version based on a “turbochetverki” can replace the current C 43 V6.
Mercedes-Benz continues to produce C-class to generational change. The model is expected to debut in 2021, however, the embodiment shown in these pictures, will be available from the first day of sales: our photographers claim that caught on tests sedan from AMG.
The prototype clearly does not look fully ready for production: the disks are different, “toothy” grille Panamericana, once the prerogative of the supercar AMG GT, but these days, relying even the hatchback A 45, missing. However, some signs do point to the fact that we were looking for a “heated” version of the sedan: the extended track, the big brakes, not very carefully hidden spoiler on the trunk like the current C 43.
In fact, a replacement for C and 43 should be in this car, which is expected to call C 53. AMG-line with this index, Mercedes-Benz presented two and a half years ago, but if “fifty-third” E-class and CLS are equipped with three-liter row “six” and a 48-volt starter-generator EQ Boost, the C-class is the V6 needs to obtain a hybrid system based on two-liter “turboservice”. It is not excluded that it will add the new supercharger with the electric drive, announced earlier this summer.
Electrification needs to compensate for downsizing. The year before, in the course of routine updates collection capacity C 43 has increased from 367 to 390 HP, while maintaining torque at 520 Nm.
We can assume that the impact of the new C 53 will exceed 400 HP By the way, already in 2018, the head of Mercedes-AMG Tobias Moers has confirmed that a hybrid will be the next C 63, and its powerplant will be based on something more modest than the current V8.
