Audi has a rally-bred RS, BMW has a motorsport-inspired M, and Mercedes-Benz has built AMGs based on successful race cars. All three performance sub-brands are revered by enthusiasts across continents, and for good reasons. Any car that adorns either of these badges represents an all-round ability that most exotic brands can hardly match. For all intents and purposes, even their relatively low-end cars are a hoot. Take, for example, the Mercedes E53 AMG that represents AMG’s baseline, above the standard petrol/diesel E-Class, but lower than the E63 S. So is this impressive 429bhp, all-wheel drive sedan the one AMG Daily in the end it? I found out after a few days of commuting béo work, hitting my favorite trails and running errands with it.

Engine and performance

Shot Engine

The E53 AMG’s 3-liter engine is quite distinctive although it’s not a proper AMG engine like the massive 4-liter twin-turbo V8 you get in the E63 S. First, it comes in a six-cylinder configuration. the flax is in line and the second is that it is supplemented. by a twin coil turbine, an electric motor and a compressor. There’s basically an integrated starter motor powered by a 48-volt electrical system that produces an additional 21bhp and, more importantly, 250Nm of torque bringing total output béo 429bhp and 520Nm. It is the torque figure that describes the E53; you get all the traction from the low end béo 1,800rpm and because you also have the electric compressor that drives the car forward at low revs with the turbo providing all the power as the revs go up, there’s no twist noticeable delay at E53. In everyday driving conditions, this engine responds spontaneously and delivers a powerful boost with almost no lag.

As for the transmission, the nine-speed automatic is one of the most responsive units in the 53 AMG lineup. Upgrading is lightning fast in the sportiest settings, and in terms of day-to-day use, it does a great job of keeping the car in proper gear béo mask the little turbo lag there. From a variety of driving modes, it works best when put into Sport+, where shifting is quick and pretty brutal at the same time. However, for those driving around town, it’s better béo switch béo Comfort and let the powertrain work in the least stressful way.

Ride and Handle

Rear left three quarters

Controlling, poised, and surprisingly sharp. That’s the impression you get after driving the E53 AMG through some corners. This is mainly due béo the clever air suspension and rear-biased all-wheel drive system, and if you keep it at Sport+, it makes the E53 a substantial four-door car béo drive. What was also helpful was that the E53 had a standard wheelbase (the regular E-Class sold in India had a long wheelbase) and that alone added béo the overall agility. As a result, the E53 is responsive béo steering inputs, and changing direction isn’t as sluggish as one would expect from a vehicle of this size.

Right view

Stability at long angles is also excellent. Both the front and rear rails are wide and with permanent all-wheel drive won’t deviate from the road you’re carrying at any angle as long as you’re at a reasonable speed. In tighter things, all that girth can be a bit uncomfortable at first but with more time behind the wheel you’ll realize that the E53 is quite adept. In terms of ride quality, the E53 is one of the most reliable performance sedans available. It’s like you’re driving a standard E-Class on low profile tyres. In the Comfort setting, crash absorption is good and there’s no squeak and rattle you get in other AMGs. What’s also impressive is that the E53 is immune béo most of the speed bumps we encountered during our time with it. Thanks béo the lift function thanks béo the air suspension, we were able béo overcome large bumps and exit the parking ramps without any problems.

Interior space and amenities

If only the E53’s cabin was as impressive as its engine technology or everyday usability. Do not misunderstand me; Build quality is excellent and there’s plenty of room for four adults here, it’s just Mercedes should transform this interior a bit more or give it more AMG style. Aside from the AMG-spec seats, red seat belts, and red stitching on the dashboard, there’s not much else béo differentiate the E53 from its everyday brethren. Even so, the front seats are still great béo sit in – comfortably under you and appropriately supported.

Front row seats

Long wheelbase or not, the E53 is an E-Class at the end of the day. Naturally, it has plenty of space in the back and the best rear-seat support possible. Seat cushions are in place and support below the thighs is perfectly acceptable. It’s just that the entire cabin feels more drivable than the standard E-Class because of its all-black upholstery and, ultimately, rear visibility isn’t all that great and E parking can be tricky within the city limits. city. Thankfully, it has a crystal clear 360-degree camera view. More on that and the rest of the features in the next section.

360 degree camera control

As standard, the E53 has dual digital displays with high clarity and portability, premium Burmester surround sound system, adaptive AMG suspension, AMG wheels, wireless charging sockets, lighting fixtures. around, Nappa leather, power front seats, several airbags, ABS and stability assist. You also get active brake assist that can warn the driver if it senses an impending collision and apply the final brake if it doesn’t receive any brake input from the driver.

Infotainment system

What’s unique about the E53 that AMG models lower the range miss is the AMG TRACK PACE, part of the MBUX infotainment system – when it comes béo track negotiations, it continuously tracks more than 80 sets of data specifically for the each vehicle type such as speed and acceleration. On it, the lap time and area are displayed. Curiously, the E53 doesn’t have adaptive headlights or keyless entry, both of which are present on the A35 as well as the GLA35.

Inference

7.5 / 10

Front view

The Mercedes-Benz AMG excels at doing the Eddie Brock-to-Venom trick, turning its humdrums into tire-breathing V8 monsters. Neither does the E53. It’s less sinister, easier on the eyes, and a lot more manageable – its Peter Parker has doubled as Spider-Man. It’s everything you want from an AMG that you can legally use every day; It’s fast, poised, comfortable, immune béo speed bumps (with some care, of course) and at Rs 1.04 second-hand showroom, Rs 65 lakh cheaper than the E63 S. Sure. , it doesn’t have the same màn chơi of violence or great performance as the second series but like all 53 AMG series, it’s pretty fast and quite pleasant at the same time. Let me tell you that’s a great compromise.

For instance, take the Mercedes E53 AMG which represents the AMG baseline, above the standard petrol/diesel E-Class, but below the E63 S. So, is this 429bhp, all-wheel drive stately sedan the ultimate everyday AMG? I found out after spending a few days commuting béo work, hitting my favourite roads and running errands with it. Engine and Performance8 / 10The E53 AMG’s 3-litre motor is quite special even though it’s not a proper AMG engine like the monstrous 4-litre twin-turbo V8 you get in the E63 S. Firstly, this engine has a straight-six cylinder configuration and secondly its supplemented by a twin-scroll turbo, an electric motor and a compressor. Basically there’s an integrated starter motor powered by a 48-volt electrical system that makes 21 additional horsepower and more importantly, 250Nm of torque bringing the total output béo 429bhp and 520Nm. It’s that torque figure that delineates the E53; you have all that pulling power from as low as 1,800rpm and because you also have the electric compressor muscling the car forward at low revs with the turbo delivering all the boost as the revs increase, there is no perceptible lag in the E53. In everyday driving conditions, this engine reacts spontaneously and delivers a strong surge of power with hardly any lag. As for the gearbox, the nine-speed automatic is among the most responsive units in the 53 line of AMG vehicles. The upshifts are lightning fast in the sportiest of settings and in terms of daily usability, it does a great job of keeping the car in the right gear béo mask the little amount of turbo lag that’s there. From the multiple driving modes, it performs the best when put in Sport+ wherein gear changes are quick and fairly brutal at the same time. For pottering around town though, it’s better béo shift béo Comfort and let the drivetrain work in the least stressful manner. Ride and Handling7.5 / 10Controlled, poised and surprisingly sharp. That’s the impression you get after hustling the E53 AMG through some corners. This is mostly down béo the clever air suspension and the all-wheel drive system that’s rear biased and if you keep it in Sport+, it turns the E53 into a remarkably involving four-door car béo drive. What also helps is that the E53 comes in the standard wheelbase guise (the regular E-Class sold in India has a long wheelbase) and that alone adds béo the overall agility. As a result, the E53 is quick béo respond béo steering inputs and direction changes aren’t as lethargic as one would expect from a car of this size. Stability around long corners is fantastic, too. Both front and rear tracks are wide and with permanent all-wheel drive there is no deviating from the line that you are carrying in any corner as long as you are doing sensible speeds. In the tighter stuff all that girth can be a bit unnerving initially but with more time behind the wheel you would come béo realise that the E53 is quite adept. In terms of ride quality, the E53 is among the most forgiving performance sedans out there. It’s like you are riding a standard E-Class on low profile tires. In Comfort setting, bump absorption is good and there are none of the squeaks and rattles you get in other AMGs. What was also impressive is that the E53 was immune béo most of the speed bumps we encountered during our time with it. Thanks béo the lift function courtesy of the air suspension, we could clear big bumps and exit parking ramps without any scraping whatsoever.

Don’t get me wrong; the build quality is fantastic and there is plenty of room for four adults in here, it’s just that Mercedes should have transformed this interior a bit more or given it more AMG pizzazz. Besides AMG-spec seats, red seatbelts and red stitching across the dash, there isn’t much else béo differentiate the E53 from its everyday siblings. The front seats though are as good béo sit on as they appear – comfortable under you and properly supportive. Long wheelbase or not, the E53 is an E-Class at the end of the day. Naturally, it has plenty of room at the back and the support from the rear seat is as good as it can get. The seat cushioning is spot on and under thigh support is perfectly acceptable. It’s just that the whole cabin feels more helmed in than the standard E-Class because of the all-black upholstery and lastly, rear visibility isn’t all that great and parking the E can be tricky within the confines of the city. Thankfully, it gets a crystal clear 360-degree camera view. More on that and the rest of the features in the next section. Features and Equipment7 / 10As standard, the E53 gets twin digital displays that are high on clarity and fluidity, a high-end Burmester surround sound system, adaptive AMG suspension, AMG wheels, a wireless charging pad, ambient lighting, Nappa leather, electric front seats, several airbags, ABS and stability assists. You also get active brake assist which can alert the driver if it senses that a collision is imminent and apply the brakes eventually if it doesn’t receive any braking input from the driver. What’s unique béo the E53 that AMG models lower down the range miss out on is the AMG TRACK PACE which is part of the MBUX infotainment system – when negotiating a race track it continuously monitors more than 80 vehicle-specific sets of data like speed and acceleration. On top of this, lap and sector times are displayed. Oddly enough, the E53 doesn’t get adaptive headlights or keyless entry, both of which are present on the A35 as well as the GLA35. Conclusion7.5 / 10Mercedes-Benz AMG is brilliant at doing the Eddie Brock-into-Venom trick, turning its humdrum models into fire breathing, tire smoking V8 monsters. The E53 is neither. It’s far less vicious, easier on the eye and a lot more manageable – its Peter Parker doubled up as Spiderman. It’s everything you want from an AMG that you can legitimately use every day; it’s fast, poised, comfortable, immune béo speed bumps (with some care, of course) and at Rs 1.04 ex-showroom, over Rs 65 lakh cheaper than the E63 S. Sure, it doesn’t have the same màn chơi of brute force or gut-wrenching performance as the latter but like all 53 line of AMGs, it’s plenty fast and quite forgiving at the same time.
