The New Mercedes-AMG E43 Saloon

The new Mercedes-AMG E43 Saloon packs a wallop, thanks to an enhanced engine.

While the C43 variants make do with ‘just’ 367 hp, the E43 Saloon packs 401 hp from its twin-turbocharged V6. This enables the car to clock a suitably spirited 0-100 km/h time of just 4.6 seconds.

Helping the driver make best use of the engine’s performance is the 9-speed 9G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission that transmits drive to all four wheels via the German brand’s 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. Satisfyingly, most of the torque is (in normal drive) deployed to the rear wheels, with a front-to-rear torque distribution of 31:69.

Air suspension is standard but it’s been re-calibrated to better suit the sportier character of the E43 Saloon. Braking power is provided by cross-drilled and ventilated 360 mm front discs, clamped by 4-piston callipers, while out the back you’ll find ventilated 360 mm discs and single-piston callipers.

The E43 Saloon also gets bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels, chrome-plated exhaust tips and a standard-fit lip spoiler atop the boot lid. Inside there are similarly subtle upgrades, including red stitching, extended leather trim, a black headliner and red seatbelts. You get a myriad of AMG-specific instrumentation, too, adding to the high-performance feel.
