It might be the entry-level model but the new Mercedes-AMG E53 Saloon 4MATIC Premium Plus is a true Mercedes-AMG product – visually and technically.
The new model is part of the fifth-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W213). In view of this, it has design cues from the larger S-Class and the smaller C-Class.
The comparisons to the facelifted variant of the previous model (W212) are also inevitable.
For instance, the current E-Class is based on the F800 Style’s design language while the W212 E-Class incorporates several design cues from the F800 Style.
The new Mercedes-AMG E53 Saloon 4MATIC Premium Plus is one of three models in the potent AMG range of E-Class Saloons which also includes the super-fast E63 4MATIC+ and E63S 4MATIC+ Saloons.
The trademark Mercedes-AMG model designation comprising two digits identifies it as a member of the AMG family.
Engine and Performance
The new 3-litre 6-cylinder inline engine is rated at 435 hp and 520 Nm combines exhaust gas turbocharger. It also has an additional electrical compressor plus a 48V on-board electrical system.
As for its EQ Boost starter-alternator generator, it delivers an additional 16 kW of output and 250 Nm of torque when necessary.
Not only that, the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with fully variable power distribution and further technical wizardry also brings a high degree of AMG Driving Performance.
Lastly, the acceleration from rest to 100 km/h is completed in a swift 4.5 seconds.
On the outside, this new saloon is instantly recognizable with AMG body styling, 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in black with a high-sheen finish.
It also showcases its AMG dual twin exhaust tailpipes that sing a mesmerizing tune when the revs climb.
Inside its sumptuous cabin, AMG sports seats with AMG badges and AMG-specific upholstery, and AMG 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel in Nappa leather.
Its AMG main menu includes RACETIMER and start-up display and a 12.3-inch widescreen cockpit are just a few of the features that set the car apart from the standard E-Class Saloons.
Comfort Features and Key Equipment Specifications
Our Mercedes-AMG model also comes with the AMG Night Package and Premium Plus Package.
Besides the 19-inch alloy wheels which were mentioned earlier, other special equipment include these items in stylish high-gloss black – arrow-shaped wing signet above “Turbo 4MATIC+” badging, rear bumper chrome trim, and exterior mirror housings.
It also showcases its front apron, radiator grille with Mercedes-Benz “star” and single louvre, and waistline trim strip.
