Mercedes-Benz introduces E53 AMG 4MATIC

Mercedes-Benz introduces E53 AMG 4MATIC

-    The E53 AMG replaces the E43.

-    The sports saloon also gets an electrified powertrain with its new engine.

-    The same powertrain also does duties in the newly introduced CLS53 AMG.

Mercedes-Benz has revamped the E-Class line-up for a new model year with trivial additions such as updated infotainment system, a revised dashboard and steering wheel, new alloy wheels, and new packages. But the most significant revision comes in the form of E53 AMG, which replaces the E43 AMG as a new electrified top-spec model and positioned below the fully-blown E63 AMG.

The E53 AMG 4 Matic has a mild hybrid set-up with Mercedes’ 48V electric architecture. It uses the same turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six engine as the CLS53 AMG producing 429bhp at 6,100rpm and 510Nm between 1,800-5,800rpm. The 0-100kmph is now 4.5 seconds, two-tenths quicker than the E43, and the top speed is limited to 250kmph. Power is sent to the fully variable 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system via a SPEEDSHIFT 9G automatic transmission.

The E53 AMG is available in both saloon and estate guise. Beneath the AMG models, the V6 in the E400d is replaced by a straight-six unit since the former power plant is being phased out by Mercedes. The new straight-six oil burner produces 335bhp and 700Nm and is compliant with the Euro 6 standards. The rest of the E-Class line-up remains unchanged.

We expect Mercedes to bring the new and updated E-Class line-up to India, as well. The E53 AMG might also be a viable choice for the Indian market given the success the Three-Pointed Star has garnered with the 43AMG models.
