Set to be introduced on the US market this autumn, the high-end 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class range is announced to come with plenty of high-tech gizmos and safety features and more power under the hood, thanks to the new upgraded engine suit.
Visually, the new E-Class looks quite fresh compared to last year`s model, featuring in a premiere AMG`s magnificent 19-inch alloy wheels, along with updated front and rear ends, as well as a choice of four exterior colours to choose from.
Inside, the cabin retains the same luxurious feel and taste, yet the carmaker chose to add two new interior trims and a new three-spoke multi-function steering wheel with Nappa leather upholstery.
As aforementioned, the entire 2019 E-Class family is highly-tech, thanks to the ‘’enhanced safety systems’’ and ‘’route-based speed adaption which uses a substantially broader scope of map and navigation data to more safety navigate different driving roads and situations’’, as Mercedes says.
As for performance under the hood, the big news is the new E450 version (it replaces the previous E400) available as a sedan, coupe, convertible and wagon, the model coming with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. It develops 362 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque, which is 33 horsepower and 20 Nm of torque more than the E400.
Daimler also introduced the Mercedes-AMG E53 as the top notch variant of the E-Class. This one is equipped with a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine with EQ Boost technology, allowing 429 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque. With this amount of power in mind, the E53, particularly the sedan, is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds.
More than that, there is also a new 2.0-liter turbo flat-four engine available as optional on the E-Class sedan, with a rough 241 horsepower and 369 Nm of torque.
