Order The New Mercedes-AMG 53 Models From €81,592 In Germany

Presented officially earlier this spring, the new Mercedes-AMG 53 models are already available to order in Germany and will arrive at dealers in August.

The lineup includes the E-Class Coupe, E-Class Cabriolet and new CLS, all of which share the same powertrain, a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six with a starter-alternator that powers a 48V electrical system.

Mercedes-AMG says that all three models have 435 PS (429 hp / 320 kW) and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque from the internal combustion lump, along with 22 PS (22 hp / 16 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque from the EQ unit. Naught to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 4.4sec, 4.4sec and 4.5sec, respectively, and top speed is electronically capped at 250km/h (155mph) on all of them.

The AMG E53 4Matic+ Cabriolet has a starting price of €87,066.35 ($101,431), and there’s an Edition 1 version of the CLS 53, too, which can be ordered from €97,282.50 ($113,333).

On the styling front, the AMG 53 models have a distinctive look, with the twin-blade radiator grille in silver chrome, specific side panels, restyled rear apron, boot lid spoiler available in carbon fiber as an option and round tailpipes.

Inside, all of them benefit from exclusive trim, AMG steering wheel in Nappa leather, optional digital Widescreen Cockpit and wood inserts.

The new Mercedes-AMG CLS53 4Matic+ Edition 1 adds Copper Art interior design, black Nappa leather seats with copper-colored contrast stitching, various elements in carbon fiber and Edition lettering. It also gets ambient lighting with 64 colors, an IWC analogue clock and the Memory and Mirror packages.
