An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
AMG has developed a version of 4MATIC® that obliterates every notion concerning the performance potential of all-wheel drive. A 31:69 base front/rear torque split assures an ideal balance of power delivery under hard acceleration and coming out of corners. In every driving condition, AMG Performance 4MATIC enhances grip and acceleration while preserving agility and driving fun.
A 385-hp 3.0L V6 biturbo engine features numerous AMG enhancements for instant response. Increased turbo boost puts its 384 lb-ft of torque on tap at just 2,500 rpm, for a 0-60 time of just 4.6 seconds. Rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection act with millisecond speed and molecular precision. Beneath its red engine cover, a lightweight diecast-alloy block, variable valve timing and reduced friction further raise efficiency and performance.
Specific AMG programming of the 9-speed automatic transmission delivers quicker gear changes in the paddle-shifted Manual mode. In the Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT, the wide range of closely spaced ratios offers an ideal blend of smooth, efficient performance in virtually every driving situation, from relaxed cruising to quick acceleration. Three overdrive ratios further enhance highway fuel efficiency.
