At the New York Auto Show, Mercedes opens the way toward performance for the new E-Class generation where the German automaker unveils the new version E43 AMG. This is the first version on which the division from Affalterbach puts its name on since the onset of the new W213 generation.

The 9G-Tronic automatic transmission has a lower gear shift time and can be engaged in two modes, Sport and Sport Plus. It is possible to change gears manually using the shift paddles on the steering wheel and the selection of modes is made from the center console.

The specialists have designed for this model a special sport suspension based on a multi-chamber air suspension system. The adaptive damping system also offers three control modes, Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. So, the drivers get maximum performance and maximum comfort aboard an elegant sports car at the same time.

The outside looks of the E43 4MATIC immediately makes you think of the AMG family. Besides the strong and sure look there are three large openings in the front threshold, which ensure optimum airflow for coolers. The two cross-elegant wings on the openings enhance the visual appearance of the vehicle and the diamond grid with chrome clips and glossy black slot ventilation, with the AMG inscription, represents the distinguishing and additional mark for the E43 AMG model.

In the official statement, Mercedes says that the E43 has 34 extra horsepower than the C43 AMG, as an intermediate performance model which fills the gap between the C Class and C63 AMG version. The new E43 AMG will be slightly heavier than its little brother, having a weight of 1840 kilograms.

The interior reinforces the dynamic look of the new E43 4MATIC through some individual details. The driver and front passenger sit comfortably in sports seats with improved lateral support. Seat upholstery is Artico artificial leather / Dynamics with black microfiber, or optional Nappa leather, and presents red stitching for added sportiness.
