2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 local pricing

Mercedes-Benz Australia has announced the new line-up and pricing for the E-Class range, with a new six-cylinder powered AMG model making its debut.

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53, announced in January at the Detroit Motor Show, is set to replace the AMG E43, meaning the top sixer for AMG’s E-Class is now more powerful, but also pricier.

At $167,129 before on-road costs, the E53 Sedan presents a faster car for about $7500 more than the outgoing E43, while an AMG E53 Coupé is priced at $172,729, and the Cabriolet at $181,329.

With Mercedes’ new 3.0-litre inline six producing 320kW (25kW more than the E43’s 3.0-litre V6) and 520Nm, plus an additional 16kW from AMG’s EQ Boost, the AMG E53 Coupe and Cabriolet both claim a 0-100km/h sprint of just 4.4 seconds.

Mercedes’ 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system is equipped across the entire AMG E-Class range now, and has been since the current-gen E63 S copped it last year.

Merc’s ‘9G-Tronic’ 9-speed auto is used in the E53, as well as an active AMG Performance exhaust to liven up the six’s soundtrack.

From the exterior, Merc’s grille designations means the E53 cops the twin-blade radiator grille (where V8s are afforded the Panamericana, and lesser models the ‘Diamond’ grille), while a restyled rear apron houses the exhaust exits. Standard wheels are 20-inch, five twin-spoke alloys,
