Mercedes-AMG E 53 Hybrid 4Matic+ debuts with saloon & estate options


The 6th-gen W214 E-Class lineup is now joined by the E 53 Hybrid 4Matic+ sedan and estate variants. Pricing and availability information are not disclosed yet, but your local dealer might have some reliable information. But in the meantime, let’s take a look at what’s all the hoopla.

The AMG E 53 models try to look more aggressive compared with the regular E-Class sedan and estate models with AMG-typical front and rear fascias with elements such as panamericana grille, sporty front bumper, side skirts, a sporty rear bumper with diffuser and dual tailpipes, a bootlid spoiler on the saloon, and of course, standard 19-inch light-alloy wheels. 20- and 21-inch forged wheel options are also available. The AMG Exterior Night Package and the AMG Exterior Night Package II are also included; the latter gets you elements in black chrome. The AMG Carbon Exterior Package includes exterior mirror housings and a bootlid spoiler.

AMG Ride Control steel spring suspension with adaptive adjustable damping comes standard, as is active rear-axle steering. The AMG high-performance sports brake system also comes standard, with discs measuring 370 x 36 mm on the front axle—gripped by 4-piston fixed calipers and 360 x 26 mm discs at the rear—gripped by single-piston calipers.


Both saloon and estate models pack a 3.0-litre (2,999 cc) straight-six turbo petrol engine—combined with an electric motor integrated into the 9-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The ICE produces 330 kW (449 metric hp) between 5,800 and 6,100 rpm and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque between 2,200 and 5,000 rpm. The electric motor offers 120 kW (163 metric hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft). The system figures, however, are gonna be 430 kW (585 metric hp) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft). The optional AMG Dynamic Plus package includes the Race Start function which bumps the power output to up to 450 kW (612 metric hp).

As for the official performance figures, the saloon with the aforementioned pack is claimed to sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 280 km/h (174 mph)—again, with the optional pack, else it’s 250 km/h (155 mph). The estate can optionally do 275 km/h (171 mph).

A 28.6 kWh battery pack is installed under the trunk floor, estimated to offer a WLTP range of anywhere between 93 and 101 km (58-63 mi) in the saloon, and between 90 and 97 km (56-60 mi) in the estate.

Inside, you get electrically adjustable AMG sports seats as standard, upholstered in Artico man-made leather. AMG performance seats are optionally available. Nappa leather-upholstered AMG performance steering wheel is also standard.
