If you want a full-out AMG experience, look to the AMG E63 S. The E53 is a bit more sedate.

The EQ Boost mild-hybrid system allows engine-free coasting, or "sailing" as Mercedes-Benz calls it.

EQ Boost can also get down with some fun, adding an extra 21 hp and 184 lb-ft into the mix.

Hands-on driver assistance features like route-based adaptive cruise control, steering assist and lane-change assist are an extra $2,250.

Unfortunately, the AMG E53 is still rocking the old COMAND infotainment system. Buyers may want to wait until 2021 when the new MBUX technology should come into the car.
