Mercedes-Benz is enhancing the E-Class lineup with a brand new driver help package deal that delivers the semi-autonomous capabilities already obtainable on the S-Class. Amongst them is superior steering help and Mercedes’ newest model of adaptive cruise management. Dubbed “Lively Distance Help Distronic” by the model, the tech permits the vehicle to take care of a cushty following distance with the visitors forward and is able to coming to a whole cease in visitors jams. However, in contrast to another methods, it could additionally resume velocity as soon as the street forward is obvious.
There’s additionally a brand new SportsStyle Package deal for the 2019 mannequin yr — including chrome accents to the exterior, tailpipe finishers, particular badging, and an upgraded interior that includes chrome steel sport pedals, ash wooden middle console, new headliner, and distinctive flooring mats.
Nevertheless, most fascinating change comes by way of AMG. Mercedes has ditched the E43 mannequin for the all new E53 4Matic+. Coming in each wagon and sedan bodystyles, the E53 dumps the E43’s biturbo V6 for an inline unit internet hosting the identical variety of cylinders, turbochargers, and provides a light hybrid software.
The forty eight-volt setup is shortly turning into a staple at Mercedes, which is ok, as no one can accuse these motors of underdelivering. For the AMG E-Class, the inline three.zero-liter makes use of a electric drive supercharger to remove turbo lag. Peaking at 435 horsepower and 384 pound-ft of torque, the engine mates to an AMG Speedshift 9-velocity transmission that sends energy to a variable all-wheel drive setup.
Whereas these numbers might not sound radical in comparison with the E43’s specifications, they’re an enchancment when it comes to horsepower. Additionally, by eliminating turbo lag, the E53 ought to have the ability to faucet into that uptick in energy extra shortly and enhance on the previous car’s zero-to-sixty time of four.5 seconds (although it’s able to higher with the best set of tires).
The brand new engine may also make its solution to the E53 coupe and cabriolet, each of which must be out there in North America. Nevertheless, Mercedes stated it can retain the wagon for European use. As infuriating as that makes a small subset of motorists, don’t overlook that the utterly insane E63 wagon is obtainable in the USA and Canada. Its 603-horsepower four.zero-liter V8 is sufficient to embarrass virtually anything you’d encounter off the racetrack, offered you’ve the cash to buy one.
Frankly, we’re glad to see the SportsStyle look package deal. The chrome additions are wildly tasteful and the interior will get some real consideration, as nicely. Recently, it appears lots of automakers are charging extra for the elimination of chrome detailing and not all the time in ways in which add to a vehicle’s look. Whereas we like giving clients choices, charging them extra for a car that appears decidedly inexpensive doesn’t make a lot sense to us. Some manufacturers, like Jaguar, have been capable of do the stripped-down look considerably higher.
Along with the package deal, Mercedes-Benz can also be including new choices for the E-Class’ interior trim supplies, seats, and wheels. Official North American pricing and specs will probably be introduced at a later date, however European costs have already been listed. Performing some foreign money conversion exhibits Mercedes is asking roughly $1,500 (USD) for the SportsStyle package deal, whereas the 2019 AMG E53 4MATIC+ sedan carries an MSRP of round $eighty five,200.
If that quantity sticks when it arrives on the home market, it’ll symbolize a $12,600 premium over the outgoing E43. Whereas nearly all of that may be attributed to the vehicle’s superior powertrain, it doesn’t change the truth that it’s a large chunk of change — even for somebody who can afford it.
