Mercedes-AMG E43 4Matic (2018) Review – Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely

  • by

Sitting in-between the realms of the large luxurious super saloon that is the S-Class and the compact four-door sedan that is the C-Class, the E-Class has always been somewhat of a sweet spot for the brand. Now, Mercedes-Benz offers a proper bruiser with a softer side, meet the Mercedes-AMG E43 4Matic.

In 1829 robert stevenson created this behind me the steam locomotive and in 1904 was brought to the trance model i think it’s a testament to our need and want to go very very quickly in something large powerful and imposing as worth that massive mighty locomotive that we looked at this is black it’s large and it’s imposing this is impressive power this is the

Mercedes-benz be 43 amg within the segment in class sir vehicle modern times have brought us a wealth of technology take the new volvo s90 whether it’s pilots assisted drive the bmw 5-series that of the jaguar xf they all come with a spectrum of driver assistance features and an array of technology that was previously only found in the big boys saloons the

Likes of the s-class in the seventh series or that of something like an audi a8 or jaguar xj although this is the latest in the e-class liner and much like that of its predecessor and in fact much like that of the larger even more executive s-class saloon it is dripping with the latest of driver assistance features and technology which really basically make it

A slightly scaled-down version of the s-class it is one you mentally impressive what it can do now just like the image the scar portrays on the outside the interior is hugely impressive it doesn’t feel a long departure in fact from there to the s-class so as you can see it’s got the operated system here in terms of multimedia to mess of twelve point three inch

Displays the drivers display for example here with the instrumentation completely customizable you can slide through a host of settings here so for example right now i’ve got on what they call a progressive mode i can change the design however let’s get something a little bit more racy let’s hit sport mode now suddenly it goes yellow and bright and vibrant you

Get amg style dials and you can customize it so i’ve got navigation in the one ring the speedometer in the other of course this being the amg edition you get suede’s of carbon in here large carbon panels and it still remains iligan to this being an e class so you get an analogue clock it’s easy to use the system you got a handwriting pad you got a jog dial at the

Centre and it’s your mercedes-benz come and interface you’ve got the likes of satellite radio apple’s carplay and android auto as well now the system i’ve got currently fitted it’s got burmaster audio that’s an optional extra as is the larger display at the front but it really is an impressive and well worth having spec overall you can also customize a lot of what

Goes on in the vehicle including the mood right now i’ve got their lights it to adam red clara for the amg style but they are 64 shades of lighting available in the ambient light settings there really is loads and loads of customization and choice here and it’s all in keeping with the sporty yet elegant feel as are these the red seatbelts but enough about talking

About the area its fill some of this amg power out on the road again in the old days there was for example the 55 m gse 55 and sl 55 now you get the like soft and he class you get the mighty 63 which will do 0 to 100 in a claimed 3.3 seconds absolute monster of a thing and then you get this one the 43 slightly more toned down it could be argued but still has the

Ability to unleash a bit of an animal if the mood takes you you see it’s got a 3 litre turbocharged v6 motor and develops a whopping 295 kilowatts of power and 520 newton meters of torque and the result is 0 to 100 in a mere 4.6 seconds you can off the long like i’m doing now in a comfort mode complete quietness elegance and luxury when i say luxury it is really

Like the s-class senior it is a beautifully appointed cabin in this case i’ve got it with some optional extras the two massive displays up ahead twelve point three inches each it’s got every imaginable feature you can think of and it’s even got the self drive feature in which it’ll take over for you including the steering i can simply let go you cruise along and

It’s steering for me it’s braking for me and it’s making sure that i can such air talking to you while it keeps me in line and then check at all times all it requires of me is to be a little bit alert and occasionally just touch the steering wheel to keep it alert that i’m here and i’m actually active in the vehicle and ultimately it’s doing everything for me

It is really quite something but then again it’s kind of wasting a car like this because of course this is the he 43 that’s an amg so i think what you all really want to do is make sure you pop it back down into sport plus mode put the suspension in to support mass so it’s firmer and the dampening is better and ultimately tighter on the corners drop a couple of

Gears and then suddenly this car really springs to life now it is extremely quick and grips like nothing and even the engine a little bit toned down here on the e-class sounds absolutely beautiful that is a trap a little thriller to drive gripping electrifying fun in the bins and ultimately sounds great this is really what mercedes amg is about it’s the beautiful

Elegance the features the comfort the quality but ultimately at the drop of a hat it also becomes the nightstalker which lets you have take my buck
