Mercedes-AMG continues to strengthen its distinctive range: the new E 53 Coupe and Cabriolet receive the iconic AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical slats, emphasizing its performance credentials and clear membership in the AMG family. When viewed from the front, its A-shaped design and new, flatter all-LED headlamps create a width-emphasizing, powerful impression. The restyled front bumper with its A-wing design also enhances the overall vehicle proportions. Thoroughly revised, the new interior also demonstrates a clear connection with distinctive AMG design. Large displays, a new AMG Performance steering wheel and the revolutionary MBUX infotainment system with AMG-specific functions and displays reinforce the characteristic AMG Performance Luxury ambience.

The AMG-enhanced 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine with electric auxiliary compressor generates an output of 429 hp and produces a peak torque of 384 lb-ft. Its EQ Boost starter-generator briefly provides up to an additional 21 hp of output plus up to 184 lb-ft of torque, while also feeding the 48 V on-board electrical system. Other highlights of the new models include the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission and the variable all-wheel drive system, AMG Performance 4MATIC+.

"Following the Sedan and Wagon, our new E 53 models also offer a perfect synthesis of performance, elegance and comfort as a coupe and cabriolet. With specific measures on the exterior and in the interior we have re-sharpened the brand identity somewhat and we are continuing to drive forward the revision of our entire E-Class family successively. For lifestyle-oriented customer groups with discerning requirements in terms of performance and efficiency, both two- door models from Affalterbach are the perfect offerings," says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Management Board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

The front end design is completely new and reinforces a clear AMG family affiliation. The key feature is the AMG-specific radiator grille with twelve vertical slats, which the E 53 Coupe and Cabriolet both receive. The A-shaped design of the front, which becomes broader towards the bottom, and the flatter, sharper-cut all-LED headlamps create an especially powerful impression. The twin powerdomes on the hood also contribute to this powerful impression. In the center section, the front bumper is drawn high into an A shape, creating a large air inlet grille with five vertical struts. This provides a view of technical details such as the cooler, which supports the purposeful, performance-oriented impression. This also applies to the large outer air inlet grille with two transverse louvers and the new front splitter. With their high-quality materials, the flics in high-gloss black also support the Performance Luxury character of AMG, while also improving the aerodynamics in combination with the inner Air Curtains. All these measures together create an extremely dy...
