By CARSIFU | 5 March 2020

AFFALTERBACH: The Mercedes-AMG E 53 gets thoroughly enhanced with an increase in optional extras and now includes the Mercedes-Benz User eXperince (MBUX) infotainment system as standard.

Also included in the list of changes is its new front that shows off its AMG-specific radiator grille with an A-shaped contour flanked by redesigned LED headlamps.

At the rear, the two-piece taillamps help to accentuate its musculature while sporting a new rear bumper and diffuser insert.

The AMG E 53 rolls on standard aerodynamically optimized 19-inch alloy wheels in a twin five-spoke design.

As an optional extra, this executive rocket can be had with 20-inch twin 5-Spoke design wheels instead.

Also, the AMG E 53's sheet metal can now be draped in new colours of Graphite Grey metallic, Mojave Silver metallic or Cirrus Silver metallic.

Inside, the cabin receives a new AMG Performance Steering wheel and AMG-specific MBUX functions.

Under the hood lies the electrified AMG-enhanced 3.0-litre (2,999cc) inline six-cylinder engine with a turbocharger and an electric auxiliary compressor.

The powerplant is now able to produce 429hp at 6,100rpm and 520Nm of torque from 1,800 to 5,800rpm.

With the help of EQ Boost, the starter-alternator briefly provides an additional 21hp and 250Nm of torque for a total output of 450hp and 770Nm.

The EQ Boost also helps to feed the 48V onboard electrical system.

Managing power delivery is an AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G (nine-speed) automatic transmission that sends propulsion to the AMG Performance 4MATIC+variable all-wheel-drive system.

This now allows the AMG E 53 to sprint from 0 to 100kph in just 4.4 seconds.
