Mercedes' brand- new 2015 Mercedes - AMG C 63 will deliver surreal performance in an elegant, modern package. This is a transmission that Mercedes claims will have “significantly quicker shift times” than the unit in last generation’s C 63 .

When Mercedes showed off the refreshed C300 earlier this year, we knew it was only a matter of time before the AMG versions also got an update. The C43 showed up first, gaining an additional 23 hp and an improved aero kit. Now, with the New York auto show in full swing, it's the C63's turn.

2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class First Look

  2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class First Look The same as ever, only completely differentGranted, it doesn't look all that different than the previous model, but that's by design. Mercedes didn't see any reason to mess with the G-Wagen's iconic shape, so the designers mostly left the exterior alone. Instead, Mercedes had its team put most of its effort into completely re-engineering everything else. So although the new luxury off-roader is slightly longer and wider than before, the differences between the two aren't immediately obvious.

As far as design changes go, the C63 gets a new grille and a reworked bumper with new air intakes. Out back, there's a new quad exhaust and diffuser, while the shape of the rear bumper has been changed to improve airflow. For an even sportier look, you can also now add an aerodynamics package to the C63 coupe.

Inside, Mercedes offers a few new leather and trim options, as well as the option to add ventilation to its AMG sports seats. More importantly, the C63 gets a wider 12.3-inch infotainment system and a new AMG steering wheel with Mercedes' ultra-cool Touch Control Buttons.

Unlike the rest of the 2019 C-Class lineup, the updated C63 doesn't get any additional power. Still, there's a chance both the C63 and C63 S will be slightly quicker thanks to a new nine-speed wet-clutch transmission. Not only does the nine-speed get two more gears than the outgoing unit, Mercedes says it's smoother and shifts quicker. Hopefully, that applies in all situations, not just at wide-open throttle as we observed in the 2017 model. AMG says it also recalibrated the C63's driving modes to further improve the driving experience.

Those with discerning eyes will note the model wears a new front fascia with new LED running lights. Of greater importance to family sedan buyers, though, is Kia’s decision to equip every 2019 Optima with advanced safety features such as automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and lane-departure warning.
