2022 Mercedes-AMG C53 spy shots: C43’s replacement spotted

Mercedes-Benz is working on a redesign for its C-Class and once again the nameplate will offer high-performance versions developed by Mercedes-AMG.

The first-generation Lexus ES 250 shared its 156-horsepower, 2.5-liter 24-valve V-6 with the Camry, and amazingly it could be had with a five-speed manual transmission.
