Mercedes-Benz E43 AMG 4Matic Estate (2017)
Concurrently with the launch of the innovative E-Class Estate developed by Mercedes-Benz at the world market, Mercedes-AMG is demonstrating the recent model E43 4Matic Estate. The distinguishing running characteristics of the AMG trademark are explicitly expressed in the V6 biturbo engine output of 295 kW with a capacity of 3 litres and four-wheel drive suspension. The stunning design of exterior and car salon with increased sportiness emphasize the autoís belonging to the AMG lineup, and directly point out such an innovative feature of E43 4Matic Estate as running characteristics peculiar to the trademark.
As well as the E-Class Saloon, the performance of the Estate autoís six-cylinder engine has been improved by Mercedes-AMG to 295 kW thanks to the two turbochargers of larger size and certain software programs. The maximum torque reaches 520 Newton metres. The speed of torque can be increased from 2500 rotations per minute.
The hardware components set ensures the same characteristics as those of a sports auto: the innovative E43 4Matic offers a speed of 100 km/h from zero speed during 4.7 seconds whereas its maximum speed capability reaches 250 km/h.
The innovative E43 4Matic Estate can be instantly identified as a model of the AMG lineup thanks to its stunning exterior design. Its robustness is accentuated by three big-sized apertures placed in the front part of apron.
The interior of a car salon highlights the energetic character of the innovative E43 4Matic Estate possessing a great number of peculiar features. Consecutive application of finish along with unified colours and materials result in a wrap-around look.
The elements of black colour prevailing in the car salon are embellished with red details with the aim of creating contrast. The appearance of multipurpose sport steering wheel perfectly matches vigorous driving style. It possesses the innovative Touch Control buttons regulating the whole infotainment equipment without the need to remove hands from the steering wheel.
The driver and an occupant in the front part of a car salon can feel safe in the sports seat even while driving at high speed due to the enhanced lateral support.
The V6 biturbo engine is characterized by highly efficient output capacity along with economical petrol consumption and low level of exhaust emissions. The output capacity reaching 295 kW is explained by innovative turbochargers and higher level of charge-air pressure reaching 1.1 bar.
Besides, the coating of the cylinder liners has been refined: it became wear-resistant thanks to its hardness and can decrease friction facilitating effective operation.
The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission of the innovative E43 4Matic Estate has been adapted by Mercedes-AMG engineers to more fast-paced driving. In addition, the developers have decreased the shift times of the transmission with 9 variants of speed thanks to the specific software application. The diversified downshift option provides more instant raising speed whereas the opportunity of double-declutching of such transmission modes as "Sport" and "Sport Plus" boosts emotional impact from driving.
A driver can choose manual operation by pressing a button placed in the centre console. The gear changing depends on the chosen mode of transmission and is available by means of actuating the paddles of the steering wheel. Besides, the transmission remains in the chosen gear and does not change the mode when the speed of engine reaches the maximum level.
The Affalterbach engineers have developed a sports-tuned suspension with independent operation mode based on the AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension.
The damping at every wheel can be regulated without driverís control in order to match ongoing driving conditions. This is performed promptly and accurately by means of two independent valves with the aim of rebound and compression strength in the dampers. The damping features are available in three variants of mode: "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport Plus" ensuring a possibility of choosing perfect comfortable long-lasting driving or driving characterized by sportive dynamic performance.
All-round pneumatic level control guarantees an unchangeable ride height of the E43 4Matic Estate regardless of load-carrying capability. With the aim of improving ground clearance, in particular, in order to manage with steep inclines of a road the level of vehicle can be increased by pressing a button while the engine is operating. The vehicle level can be reduced automatically during travelling with high speed that enhances handling characteristics due to a lowered centre-of-gravity position.
AMG performance 4Matic all-wheel drive is characterized by rear-biased allocation of torque and herewith a front or back axle split reaches from 31 to 69 percent. The mentioned configuration ensures improved driving characteristics along with raised transverse acceleration on a motorway and enhanced traction while an auto is gaining speed.
The single-stage transfer box belonging to the all-wheel drive is fixed to the 9G-TRONIC as an individual system. The complementary option facilitates altering allocation of torque in accordance with the model providing more quantity of peculiar features for the relevant model lineup. Besides, the innovative system is characterized by improved performance thanks to decreasing of friction and weight. The compactness of design ensures absence of limitations in providing space for occupants and luggage.
Such options of the transmission as "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport Plus" and "Individual" allow the driver to adjust the parameters of the E43 4Matic Estate to personal tastes by means of touching with a finger. The offered variety of modes differs from high-performance and convenient to sporty.
The innovative Mercedes-AMG E43 4Matic Estate has been presented at the world launch simultaneously with the Mercedes-Benz Estate version, on 6 June in 2016.
