The 2017 E 43 4Matic Estate features a 3.0-liter V6 Biturbo engine that develops 401 HP, and it is mated to a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox.

The standard configuration allows for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 4.7 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.

AMG engineers configured the transmission for quicker shift times, while the 4Matic permanent all-wheel-drive system has a rear-biased setup.

The performance of this model is ensured by a particular Air Body Control air suspension with a sporty setup. The damping for each wheel is adjusted automatically depending on the selected driving setting and is depending on driver inputs.

Naturally, the performance-oriented model comes with a suitable braking system, which includes four-piston fixed calipers for the front axle, that squeeze perforated and ventilated 360-mm (14 inches) discs.

The rear discs have the same diameter, but are 10 mm (0,39 inches) thinner, being 26 millimeters (1,02 inches) thick and having a set of single-piston floating calipers.

Concerning design, the new E 43 AMG 4Matic comes with a muscular appearance that still shows elegance. It will be easy to spot from a distance, as it comes with a bigger front bumper, which also included three massive air vents.

The radiator grille comes with a diamond pattern and chrome pins. From the side, you can observe a set of door sills, as well as a pair of 19-inch AMG five-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels on each side, finished in high-gloss black. The rear comes with two exhaust pipes in polished chrome and a diffuser finished in silver chrome, as well as a roof spoiler on the tailgate.

Once inside, occupants will notice red highlights for the predominantly black interior. The multifunctional steering wheel is dressed in black Nappa leather and has a flattened lower section. Naturally, it has the new Touch Control buttons of the ongoing generation E-Class.

Elements like sports seats, aluminum trim, and distinctive pattern layout for the upholstery complete the cockpit of this practical model with an appetite for performance. Optional features include AMG performance seats, carbon-fibre trim, 20-inch bichromatic wheels, and much more.

The sales release of this new model is set on September 14, 2016, while market launch is in December.
