New Mercedes-AMG C53 came out for testsOctober 28, 2020
The German company has begun testing its charged sedan.
On the eve, photo spies noticed a prototype of the new Mercedes-AMG C53 during road tests. Note that the debut of the new Mercedes C-Class will take place next year and the company is actively testing the model, ranging from the standard sedan and station wagon to the hot AMG versions.
The new spy shots show an early prototype of the AMG Lite derivative, as it is not a full-fledged Model 63. It is likely that the C43 was not captured by the journalists, as Mercedes previously assumed that the next generation C-Class would receive a C53 version.
Overall, the prototype looks a little strange. Not only does it have different wheels, but also temporary taillights, and we tend to believe that the headlights are also off-the-shelf, although they look production-ready. The front ventilated brake discs and the AMG logo on both wheels are clear signs that this is no ordinary C-Class. In addition, the fact that we have a “charged” version of the model is indicated by the vertical slats of the Panamericana grille, hidden behind the mesh camouflage.
The first-ever C53 is rumored to receive a 2.0-liter petrol engine, which will replace the six-cylinder C43 engine. The two upcoming AMG C-Class models are expected to use an upgraded version of the M139 unit from the 45s, where it produces 416 hp. and 500 Nm in the S models.
The C53 is expected to be presented by the end of 2021 or early 2022, and the flagship C63 is likely to follow.
