Mercedes-Benz AMG E-Class Coupe E53 4Matic+ – Interior
The dashboard of the Mercedes-Benz AMG E-Class Coupe E53 is shared with the sedan, but furnished with the gorgeous turbine air vents in chrome. They also illuminate together with the ambient lighting! The dashboard and upper sections of the door panels are lined with Artico material (simulated leather) and red double stitching paired with gloss black and aluminium central trim finishers.
Another showpiece in the Mercedes-Benz AMG E-Class Coupe E53 is the specially-made analogue clock. It is nice to see a mechanical device in such a high-tech coupe with 510 horsepower. The steering wheel meanwhile is the AMG Performance steering wheel with flat-bottom design and wrapped with Nappa leather and Dinamica microfibre. A red centre-marking on the steering wheel paired with the red seat belts further brings the AMG sporting character into the Mercedes-Benz AMG E-Class Coupe E53 cabin.
The driver’s instrument cluster in the Mercedes-Benz AMG E-Class Coupe E53 is the fully digital display measuring 12.3 inches. The instrument display is highly customizable, with three different themes, various driving information and other content. There is also an AMG specific theme and content such as performance AMG Track Pace data logging and engine parameters.
Changing and scrolling through the myriad of information is done via the capacitive touch-sensitive controllers on the nice-to-hold AMG Performance steering wheel. It is very intuitive after a few minutes behind the wheel. A head-up display with specific AMG content is also included in the Mercedes-Benz AMG E-Class Coupe E53.
Space and practicality
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E-Class Coupe E53 offers lots of headroom and legroom for the front occupant thanks to its high roofline. The rear meanwhile seats two and also have respectable space and properly sized seats. Similar to many Mercedes-Benz models, the front armrest opens with a centrally split lid, allowing ease of use by both occupants.
The large storage space with two cupholders and room for smartphones see a wireless smartphone charger placed in there. The rear seat, for two, doesn’t have an armrest but there is a shallow storage compartment with two cupholders. As such, squeezing a third person in the centre is not possible. Added practicality in the Mercedes-Benz AMG E-Class Coupe E53 is the 40-20-20 split-folding rear seats. Boot space is rated at 425 litres.
