The 2019 AMG E53 Sedan is the only hybrid AMG model within the E-Class lineup and is part of the fifth-generation E-Class introduced in 2017. It is part of Mercedes’ fundamental step toward a hybridized eventuality, having dropped the V6 engine from the previous E43 for an electrified straight-six turbo engine that offers progressive hybrid capabilities through the EQ Boost system. This new inline-six engine produces 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque and features an integrated EQ Boost starter-alternator that provides an extra 21 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque at optimal drive points. The powertrain is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission that feeds through to the 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system. Along with the AMG badge, the E53 is outfitted with an AMG Sport Suspension based on air body control, torque vectoring performance brakes, three-stage ESP with Dynamic Cornering Assist, an AMG Sport Exhaust System, and electromechanical power steering. Standard creature comfort levels are high with dual-zone climate control, dual 12.3-inch infotainment and instrumentation displays, and power-adjustable sports seats.
