The first place to take the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 coupe is to the track. That’s what goes through your mind when you look at it for the first time. Regarding Luxury magazine did hot laps to push this coupe to the limit.
Canada’s best luxury website put the Mercedes-AMG E53 4MATIC+ all wheel drive to the test, contrasting city driving while pushing it some more out on the highways. It passed with flying colours when talking about peak performance. This model is in Obsidian Black Metallic with AMG Driver’s and Track packages to outshine. It has AMG carbon fibre trim on 20-inch, AMG 5-Twin Spoke aero wheels to outdistance.
Mercedes-AMG E53: Start with the plush interior
The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 has an ultra plush, thick, suede and leather covered steering wheel, which makes a comfort statement in its own right before you push the start button. The designo Black DINAMICA Headliner covers the ceiling above you, a soft and plush complement to a lavish interior cabin.
Mercedes is an industry leader for driver and cabin technology. The 12.3 inch MBUX infotainment system screen in the centre melds seamlessly with the digital dash. Everything is controllable via touch, voice, and steering wheel touch. The Head-Up Display, the PARKTRONIC system with Active Parking Assist and optional Surround View Camera are must-have technologies for the luxury car owner these days.
A Mercedes that gives you a “racer feel”
Black leather upholstery is accented with bright red stitching throughout for a real “racer” feel. Speaking of which, this vehicle boasts 0-100 km in 4.4 seconds. That’s more than enough to put a smile on your face on the track. AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9 speed, 3.0L AMG inline-6 turbo engine and 462 hp and 384 lb-ft torque are what gets you there. The classic inline-6 takes on futuristic form: a belt-less turbo engine with EQ Boost electric assist.
This edition sports classic Mercedes-AMG E53 coupe has a signature sweeping profile, and is a pillarless hard-top coupe. That’s even more seductive and advanced. AMG E53 is the ideal pairing of E-Class innovation and AMG inspiration. The design known as pillarless design is a bodystyle only Mercedes-Benz has produced continuously for more than 50 years. It features no visible framework interrupting the four power side windows. It takes an extensive degree of engineering to deliver the airy elegance and sporty energy of a pillarless coupe with the security and solidity expected of a Mercedes-Benz.

Voice controls are top notch. Four passengers seat nicely.

Noteworthy are power front sport seats with memory to multi-contour front seats and thermal dual-zone automatic climate control. There are heated front armrests, and a heated steering wheel with heating elements beneath the Nappa leather trim of the steering wheel.
Bold and confident
After a few minutes, the heating level is automatically reduced to maintain lasting comfort. Mercedes-AMG E-53 is ideal for any driving conditions. But a cool feature like AIRSCARF neck-level heating system means you’ll enjoy driving with the windows down further into a cool evening or later into the season. Tilt-adjustable vents beneath each front head restraint deliver warmed airflow to your neck, head and shoulders. Hence the name “airscarf”.
With individual three-stage temperature controls and airflow automatically adjusted to your driving speed, AIRSCARF means you don’t have to put the windows up just because the sun, or thermometer, has gone down. The Mercedes Benz E-53 is a “class of its own” car you’ll love to be seen in but it’s also a dream to drive.
