2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupé The mid-range AMG crossover

Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe are very similar from behind the wheel in terms of the commanding driving position, luxury appointments, and featured.

Both are near identical in the way they drive

Yet mash the accelerator pedal, and a significant difference is immediately noticed. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe jumps off the line eagerly. Its turbocharged inline-6 is buttery smooth, and the integrated starter-generator seamlessly adds power, so acceleration is powerful and effortless.
