If its stunning looks don't turn heads then the powerful growl emanating from these twin tailpipes will. All of this power is however very user friendly and the car is great for town use as well as being a great motorway cruiser, with a smooth nine speed auto gearbox allowing you to use the substantial on-tap power to overtake quickly and safely. In all situations it's very peaceful inside and extremely comfortable having adaptive suspension for the best ride on all road types and four wheel drive adds stability, road holding and bad weather abilities.
The interior has all the usual E-Class luxury, practicality and driving aids. The E-Class is already a sizable car and this format sees interior dimensions increased and, with four doors and a large rear hatch there is plenty of luxuriously appointed room for five and their luggage. AMG finishes and sports seats further enhance the passenger and driver experience.
This amazing S-SUV is something very special indeed and with a purchase price of well over £60,000 it makes sense to enjoy it, as and when needed, by simply hiring it from The Dream Collection and experiencing its enormous power and practicality.
