Come to grips with the latest in Mercedes Benz E-series, the 2019 Mercedes Benz AMG E53. Find out what makes it tick with 3 exciting variants below!

The new 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 is a premium mid-size car that comes in sedan, wagon, cabriolet, and coupe variants. This car is highly luxurious and flamboyant in nature. It is a vehicle that is able to pacify the hungry eyes of the insatiable car freak and soothe their curiosity. It has been tagged as a fancy sports car. The vehicle is perfect for its price because it is an asset, as it provides the actual value for the money. Although it is a little more expensive than the base Mercedes Benz E300 and next-in-line to the  E450 E-class, it is however below the leading E63 S models, that bear a twin-turbo 4.0 liters V8s with 603hp.

The price for this car is between $73,545 and $98,310 or ₦26.5 million and ₦35.4 million, for the base and tested prices depending on variant and trim. Please note that prices may slightly change according to the dealer nearest to you. You will also have to add the customs clearance fees to this in Nigeria.


The E53 might well be the best E-series Mercedes ever made

1. Engine performance of 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53

The car is a replacement for the E43 (E-Class models). The E53 possesses a 3.0-liter inline-six hybrid engine, with a turbocharger. The inline-six 3.0 liters can put out about 429 hp at 6,100 rpm. A 4,000 rpm spread with 384 Ib-ft torque between 1,800 and 5,800 rpm. It is a hybrid Supercapacitor that with its EQ Boost (the hybrid system) short bursts can add another 21 hp & 184 lb-ft of torque on short burst, though not at the peak outputs of the engine.


Elegance worthy of the Benz marque is evident everywhere on the E53

It possesses large brakes, a heavy midrange, and can flow on a top speed of 130 mph. It is an all-wheel-drive that exhumes mildly without a deafening noise that unsettles the car, the driver or the environment at large. It features a hybrid system that is about 48 voltage; integrating the torque and superpower completely into the system, with a heroic accelerating system. The mode selector of the drive breathes comfort, and the transmission kick-down and throttle application are perfect. The driver can maneuver to suit himself.

Mercedes-AMG E53: Is It A Proper AMG?

4. Verdict

For a premium luxury vehicle of this caliber, the E53 can be likened to a work of auto art as it has great features and exceptional qualities and capacity. These include features such as high-tech adjustable front seats that have all heating, memory, ventilation and unique bolstering. The steering system is super dope with Alcantara wrappings, paddle alternators together with a touch control set of buttonS that is well fortified.

It is indeed a fairytale dream car that links a lot of great features between the E series all in one, making it an intermediary between the high and the low. You could never regret adding a car like the new 2019 Mercedes Benz sedan, cabriolet, and coupe AMG E53 to your fleet, or even if it’s the only car you drive.
