2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 Sedan Performance Review


Replacing the E43, the all-new E53 AMG is powered by a 3.0L straight six turbo-charged engine, and is now available in coupe, cabriolet or sedan form. This E53 argues as a much more convincing performance car, largely thanks to the new engine.
There is still a 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder under the bonnet, but the E43’s V6 has been replaced with an all-new generation of straight six. Once upon a time, Mercedes was famous for its straight sixes and it has returned to its roots in fine style. This new engine is high-tech, supplementing the regular turbocharger with an e-compressor, which allows for instant boost and plugs the gap until the regular exhaust-driven turbo takes over.
You can feel the 1870kg with swift changes of direction but it’s remarkable how quickly you can cover a stretch of road thanks to its punchy engine, all-wheel drive purchase and compliant chassis. The E53’s overall performance and reliability make it one of the fastest E-Class’s and excellent choice for daily driving use.
It combines a great engine, enjoyable handling, subtle looks and a top-class interior with the latest technology. Ultimately the E53 is a lot of car.
