Sportiness is more than skin-deep.
With a completely new front-end design, the Mercedes-AMG E-Class Coupe leaves a powerful impression. The key feature is the AMG-specific radiator grille. Combined with the A-shaped bumper, flatter all-LED headlights, and twin power-domes on the hood, this gives the vehicle a wide, aggressive stance. It flows cleanly over the sculpted roof giving it a dynamic, forward-oriented effect, similar to the AMG GT.
At the back, twin tailpipe trim is available in silver chrome or high-gloss black (as part of the AMG Night Package). The rear wheel arches help with aerodynamics, and the spoiler lip on the trunk is the perfect cap to this perfectly shaped coupe. 19-inch light-alloy wheels with a 5-twin-spoke design, as well as new exterior colors like Graphite Grey Metallic or designo Brilliant Blue Magno – a striking matte finish – round out the exterior beauty. And for an even sportier appearance, there’s the AMG Carbon Fibre Package, which adds carbon-fiber mirror caps and spoiler lip.
Under the hood, an enhanced 3.0-liter inline-6 turbo engine with EQ Boost and electric aux compressor provides peak performance and intelligent electrification. The EQ Boost starter-generator serves as an alternator and provides select hybrid functions, including up to 21 additional horsepower. Plus, an electric auxiliary compressor and an exhaust gas turbocharger help build high-charge pressure without delay, for faster increases in torque and acceleration. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9-speed transmission kicks in as well, with extremely short shift times and fast response to shift commands.
Much of this performance is brought right to your fingertips with the AMG Performance steering wheel. The twin-spoke design is equipped with haptic sensors. On the top left spoke, the instrument cluster is controlled. On the top right, the media display. The lower spokes meanwhile, affect cruise control, DISTRONIC, telephone and voice control systems. Even the transmission can be operated with galvanized shift paddles on the left and right sides.
And of course, no E-Class is complete without the latest technology like the MBUX infotainment system, dual 12.3” widescreen digital cockpit, and the PARKTRONIC system with Active Parking Assist and optional Surround View Camera. All of this combines for a visceral, one-of-a-kind driving experience.
The new Mercedes-AMG E 53 Coupe will arrive in Canada early 2021.
