The company Mercedes-AMG has expanded the family of models with the index “53”, adding to it charged modifications of the sedan and the E-Class wagon. Like the debut in January coupe and convertible E 53, hybrid new items will replace the 43-m models.

Both the sedan and the station wagon are equipped with a three-liter inline six-cylinder engine, complete with a turbocharger and an auxiliary electric compressor. The engine output is 435 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque.

With intensive accelerations, the motor is assisted by a starter generator EQ Boost, powered by a 48-volt on-board network. It can short-term increase the return on 22 horsepower (250 Nm)

Machines of the 53rd series are equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission and 4Matic + all-wheel drive system, similar to the one used on the charged E 63 sedan of the latest generation. It allows you to completely disconnect the transfer of torque to the front axle.

From zero to 100 kilometers per hour, the sedan and the Mercedes-AMG E 53 are able to accelerate in 4.5 seconds. The maximum speed is 250 kilometers per hour (with AMG Driver’s Package – 270 kilometers per hour).

The Mercedes-AMG E 53 includes a pneumatic suspension with electronically controlled dampers, a Dynamic Select mode selector, four-piston brakes with 370 mm front and 360 mm rear seats, seats with massage and ventilation, and an infotainment system with 12.3 inch display, when ordered, an analog clock will also be installed on the center console

In Germany, sales of the sedan and station wagon Mercedes-AMG E 53 4Matic + will begin in June at a price of 79,248 and 82,038 euros, respectively.
