The stunning new Mercedes-AMG E53 4MATIC+ saloon and estate versions are on the way.
The E53, which replaces the AMG E43, uses AMG’s new 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder petrol engine with EQ Boost technology. It generates 435hp and 520Nm, with an additional 22hp and 250Nm thanks to the EQ Boost system.
The EQ Boost starter-alternator, fitted between the engine and transmission, aims to enhance driving performance while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. It can deliver up to 32.5mpg on the combined cycle, and emits 200g/km.
Both models have an electronically limited top speed of 155mph and can travel from 0 to 62mph in 4.5 seconds.
An AMG Speedshift TCT 9G transmission comes as standard, and features extremely short shift times, fast response to shift paddle commands, a double-declutching function and multiple downshifts.
While the specification has not been announced, the E53 could have most of the following as standard: 19-inch alloy wheels; AMG performance exhaust; AMG ride control suspension, based on air body control air suspension; AMG dynamic select with a choice of driving modes; comand online including a 12.3-inch infotainment display; 12.3-inch cockpit display; multi-beam LED intelligent light system; Nappa leather upholstery in black with red contrast stitching; wireless phone charging; parking package with 360° camera; and memory package, including electrically adjustable front seats and steering column.
Additional equipment lines and packages may also be available options.
