Mercedes-AMG E43 4Matic (2017) Video Review

Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi recently launched mid-tier performance sedans (and a 4-door coupe), in the form of the AMG E43, 540i M Sport and S5 Sportback. What's more, Jaguar has a cracking supercharged V6-powered XF S. So how do they stack up?

In this video, we test the Stuttgart-based firm's attempt to answer its own question: Is the Affalterbach-fettled E63 just a bit too much? The E43 features the brand's latest twin-turbo V6 engine, which we like very much. And with outputs of 295 kW and 520 Nm – more than any of its 3 rivals, it's certainly no slouch.

But is it worth sacrificing the sublime comfort that the standard E-Class offers for that extra performance? You'll just have to watch to find out.
