Exterior and interior: Sporty and distinctive

Sep 13, 2016

With their distinctive exterior design, the new E 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate are immediately recognisable as members of the AMG family. Characteristic features include the distinctive AMG styling as well as the specific light-alloy wheels. They underscore the brand's progressive nature and performance.

Three large apertures in the front apron emphasise its muscular and self-assured appearance. Two transverse fins and the front splitter are finished in silver chrome. A stylised vertical flic on the outer black meshes emphasises the visual presence and creates a link with motorsport. The diamond radiator grille with chromed pins, the single transverse louvre in high-gloss black with inserts in mirror-polished chrome and the AMG logo are further distinguishing features of the E 43 4MATIC models.

The side view is dominated by high-sheen 19-inch AMG five-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in high-gloss black. The sizes are 8.0 J x 19 H2 ET20 with 245/40 ZR 19 tyres at the front, and 9.0 J x 19 H2 ET49 with 275/35 ZR 19 tyres at the rear. Other features include sporty side sill panels and the "BITURBO 4MATIC" badge on the front wings.

The rear end with diffuser insert likewise adds sporty touches, with two exhaust tailpipes in mirror-polished chrome with a centre bar conveying particularly sporty aesthetics. The rear apron trim has a silver chrome finish.

Sporty look with model-specific details: the interior design

The interior reinforces the dynamic calibre of the new E 43 4MATIC models with numerous individual details. Consistent use of trim in authentic materials, as well as uniform colours and materials from the dashboard to the interior door panels, produces a wrap-around effect which makes the driver feel at one with the vehicle.

The predominant interior colour black has red highlights as an appealing contrast. The multifunction sport steering wheel in black nappa leather with partial perforations, red contrasting topstitching and flat bottom is ideally suited to a spirited driving style. It features the new Touch Control buttons, which control the entire infotainment system without the driver having to take his hands off the steering wheel.

The driver and front passenger find a secure position in the sports seats even when driving at speed, thanks to the improved lateral support. The upholstery in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre in black with red topstitching (optionally: nappa leather with trim strips in DINAMICA microfibre with red piping) has a distinctive seat upholstery layout and AMG badges in the front seat backrests. Matching the seat design, the door centre panels and dashboard are finished in ARTICO man-made leather with red topstitching. Aluminium sports pedals with black studs, a black roof lining and red seat belts add further sporty touches.

The wide-screen cockpit with a high-resolution, multifunction double colour display can be individually configured and has its own AMG graphics. Numerous driving dynamics parameters can also be displayed here. In the AMG-specific control panel in the centre console, the driver is able to use separate keys to select the functions for manual drive mode (Long-term M), AMG RIDE CONTROL adjustable damping and 3-stage ESP®.

Optional features with a sporty emphasis

The optionally available equipment also emphasises the sporty character of the E 43 4MATIC models. These range from AMG Performance seats with increased lateral support and nappa leather upholstery to carbon-fibre interior and exterior trim and 20-inch bichromatic wheels.
