We’ve barely had time to consider the mainstream versions of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class but the German maker is already rolling out the first of what will be several AMG editions.
Part of a new line-up of what might be dubbed “AMG Light” offerings, the 396-horsepower 2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 puts a premium not only on safety but an extensive array of new safety technologies. That’s in keeping with the strategy of launching breakthroughs with the big S-Class and then going even further with each subsequent model that follows.
“The new AMG E43 offers impressive driving dynamics coupled with cutting-edge efficiency. Twin turbocharging, features adopted from motorsport and characteristic AMG design immediately indicate to our customers that the new E-Class from AMG offers pure Driving Performance coupled with cutting-edge technology and intense emotion,” said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
