2018 Mercedes-AMG E43 Awarded Five Stars by Car and Driver


Car and Driver has given the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E43 an overall five-star review, calling it “the sweet spot between high performance and high class.”  In particular, the venerable auto magazine raved about the E43’s opulent interior, 396-hp twin-turbo V-6 engine, air suspension and excellent all-wheel-drive handling. Here are a few of the review’s highlights:

Performance and Driving:
"Mercedes-AMG has perfectly synthesized hair-raising performance and next-level refinement in the E43. Its hearty powertrain is complemented by a rigid body structure and a carefully tuned air suspension that seamlessly transitions between sporty and subdued—yet always sublime."

"Upholstered in Nappa leather accented by suede-like fabric, the E43’s interior defines class. The sporty, upscale cabin is completed by a collection of deluxe standard and optional features."

"The E43’s exterior is essentially the same as the elegant-yet-sedate Mercedes-Benz E-class, except the AMG exudes more attitude with its lower ride height, chrome-tipped grille, de-chromed exterior, and exclusive wheel designs."

Safety and Driver Assistance:
"Preemptive-safety tech, semi-autonomous driving, and further futuristic features are available on the E43. Excellent crash-test ratings and several standard assists stand out on this modern performance sedan."
