Was in dynamic select mode with the hp gauge and full throttle and got a max 389 hp. I guess these cars really are underrated. The gauge goes up to 400 hp. Car was pulling pretty darn hard. Impressive.

I still haven't hit 1K miles on mine. I'm about 200 miles away from being able to put it in Sport or Sport+. 389HP is impressive for sure!

2019 E450 one of these days
I still. Haven’t received my car so I’m a long way off from the sport modes. How fast were you going?

I guess around 50 mph pulling hard in 3rd gear. My Cabriolet seems faster than the wagon even though they both have the same power train.

Sports+ puts the CAB into another category. I tried it the other day and whoa! BABY! It's turns quickly into a growling monster that can get away from you. You can really feel and hear the horses in this mode.

Ya, lots of fun to drive on the curvy roads in sport mode. I'll try the same thing with my wagon and see if I can get that up to 389 HP. Does not surprise me I was getting this much, Mercedes always seems to be under rated.

MY19 E450 4MATIC Coupé
I tried Sport+ last night for the first time and the most striking difference was in the transmission. It really punched in those gears under hard acceleration. The car is also super responsive to throttle input. I could also hear some very faint exhaust popping when coming off the throttle.

I was using the navigation in full screen so I didn't see any power output figures. Although I'm not sure how accurate that would be....

I love the exhaust popping sound in S+. Sounds badass. I spoke to my salesman and he swears it it not a fake sound on the speakers, that there is a mechanism in the exhaust that changes in that mode to make the engine more “throaty”

but he he did say if you really want an engine with on-call cohones to buy the AMG with performance exhaust.

Nothing fake about. Just go outside near the exhaust and have someone else gun you car. Beautiful burbling with a low, throaty growl. The best sounding exhaust of course is the GT model....but my E450 can hold it's own.

First time I put it in the sports+ mode and accelerated,the car jumped forward; had to get use to accelerating differently.

To me it’s just right. I don’t really like cars that are too loud. With the amgs I use to drive I was always having people around where I live tell me I needed a muffler. It was embarrassing lol
