Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) has released further information of the Mercedes-AMG E 53 4MATIC+ Sedan and Coupe duo, days after the two new AMG variants were previewed during the company’s Q3 performance press conference.

Diving straight into the price, the E 53 Sedan is estimated to cost RM740,000 while the more elegant twin goes for RM764,000, on-the-road without insurance applied. The E 53 Sedan is RM81,000 costlier than the E 43 that was on offer but is six figures cheaper than the beastly million-ringgit E 63 S.

Both the E 53 Sedan and Coupe are powered by a new 3.0-litre bi-turbo in-line six petrol engine that is paired to the brand’s EQ Boost Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) to give a combined output of 435 hp and 520 Nm of twist. Gearbox is a nine-speed AMG Speedshift that can propel the pair from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.

The E 53 pair features the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system that can split the torque between the front and rear axles for maximum traction for dynamic driving fun and high levels of safety in all conditions. AMG Ride Control+ air suspension with Adaptive Damping System+ is also fitted here that alters the damping characteristics to three preselected modes – Comfort, Sport and Sport+.

Standard equipment includes Multibeam LED headlamps, AMG Night Package, 20-inch AMG five twin-spoke light alloy wheels, AMG spoiler lip, quad exhaust outlets, Nappa leather upholstery, Panoramic sunroof, AMG Carbon Fibre Centre Console (Black Piano-Lacquer on the Coupe), Widescreen Cockpit, AMG Track Pace function, Burmester surround sound system, Heads-up Display, wireless charging tray and more.

As for safety features, the E 53 comes with Driving Assistance Package, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Steering Assist, Active parking assist with PARKTRONIC, surround view camera and Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus.

Like all new vehicles sold through MBM’s network of dealers and distributors, the Mercedes-AMG E 53 4MATIC+ Sedan and Coupe comes with a 4-Years Warranty.
