Mercedes-AMG E53 & E63 S India Launch On July 15: 450bhp & 600bhp Engines, 4Matic+ Available

Mercedes-Benz India division is gearing up for the launch of their luxury rocketships, the E53 AMG and the more potent E63 S AMG.

The German carmaker has announced that they will be launching two performance-oriented versions of their E-Class sedan in India on 15 July 2021. The cars scheduled for the launch are the Mercedes-Benz E53 4MATIC+ and the Mercedes-Benz E63 S 4MATIC+.

Let us start with the semi-skimmed version, the E53 4MATIC+. It gets a 450bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged In-line six-cylinder petrol engine, which is further assisted by a 48V mild-hybrid system called 'EQ Boost' that doubles up as a starter-generator motor with 22hp and 250Nm of torque.

All this power is sent to all four wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission. This enables the E53 to reach 100kmph from a standstill in just 4.4 seconds.

Looks-wise, the E53 is easily distinguishable with its slightly reworked front-end that carries the A-shaped contour with five vertical struts, and 19-inch and 20-inch wheel options that feature twin-five spoke alloy wheel design.

On the other hand, the full-fat version of the E-Class sedan, the E63 S 4MATIC+ gets larger central air intakes, an AMG-specific radiator grille with twelve vertical louvres and a large three-pointed star. On the rear, you can also spot the aerodynamically tweaked rear taillights that are flatter and a redesigned rear diffuser for more downforce.

Under the hood of the E63 S 4MATIC+ is a proper monster of an engine with 600bhp and 850Nm of torque. The unit is a 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine, assisted only by a pair of turbochargers that convert the atmosphere into more power.

Like the E53 AMG, the power is sent to all four wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission, and the system can catapult this luxury barge from a standstill to 100kph in just 3.4 seconds.

On the inside, both models get Mercedes latest hardware such as the MBUX infotainment system, a fully digital infotainment system with bespoke AMG graphics, a twin-spoke AMG steering wheel with haptic feedback buttons, and the latest driver aid systems with semi-autonomous driving.

Thoughts About The Mercedes-AMG E53 & E63 S India Launch

For most people, even the semi-skimmed E53 AMG will be more than plentiful for weekend fun. However, it would be a shame if someone parks their brand new E63 AMG next to your E53 AMG.
