Mercedes-AMG E53 4Matic+ Cabriolet | Ah My God | First Drive Review

A ballistic missile that manages to catch everyone's eye when she takes her top off? This possibly is the best way to describe the E53 4Matic+ Cabriolet.


Sex Appeal, AMG Performance


Does it really matter?


Quite frankly, I have been blessed to drive some of the fastest and most exotic cars sold in India. Usually, when you are driving something exotic from the Germans, it manages to go undetected and glide past under the radar. But that isn't the case with the Mercedes-AMG E53 4Matic + Cabriolet. You might ponder that it catches people's attention because of the AMG's noise, but honestly, that isn't the real reason. I have never had more heads turn, or phone cameras pointed towards me when I drop down the soft top of the E53 AMG. But how does it fair for a person who wishes to catch eyes on the streets while also wanting something practical? That is precisely what I tried to answer while I spent my day with the E53 Cabriolet. Can someone fully exploit its benefits while also oozing sex appeal?



Let me be completely honest: its 1.3 crore price tag can deter most people from the E 53 4Matic+ Cabriolet. But it isn't something you purchase while considering a practical and fun family sedan unless your family is filled with people under 5ft 4inch. What you get with that money is an experience that nothing else in India can offer. So you have to look at the Rs 1.3 crore sticker price and say you really want one. And what's likely to make the decision easier is that it has no real competition. So dare to dream; this is the car for you.
