Mercedes fans are in for a real treat soon! Considering the electric revolution that is taking the world by storm, the world’s oldest manufacturer has decided to step up the game in India. Mercedes-Benz is hence going to create yet another exciting chapter for all AMG fans in India- with the introduction of the first-ever ‘AMG 53’ model series in India.
Mercedes-Benz is expected to offer the GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe as one of the most stylish SUVs in its lineup. You can expect the AMG-specific radiator grille that will immediately set the SUV apart. The SUV should also get the Mercedes star in a double ring, flanked by slim headlamps and a striking “A-wing” in the front apron.
The rear should also get a prominent diffuser with a trim strip in silver chrome. The signature AMG exhaust system with two round twin tailpipe trim elements is bound to be present, while Mercedes-Benz will offer further individualization options in the AMG Night package. This package should offer heat-insulating dark-tinted windows, along with the front splitter, front apron trim, diffuser, and outer air inlets, mirror caps, window frames, and exhaust tailpipe trim elements in a black finish.
The new GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe is expected to be powered by a 3 litre, inline-6-cylinder, twin-turbocharged engine that should make 435BHP of maximum power and 520Nm of peak torque. It will be mated to a 48V hybrid electric system that, along with the EQ Boost starter-alternator, should provide an additional boost of 22hp and 250Nm of temporary power.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe will be the first AMG 53 series launched in India, strengthening the brand’s formidable GLE portfolio even more. Mercedes-Benz India will open the bookings of the all-new Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupé, from 8th September 11:00 am onwards. The stylish SUV Coupe will be launched in India by Santosh Iyer, Vice-President, Sales & Marketing on 23-September, 2020.
