Mercedes-Benz India will be launching the E 53 AMG Cabriolet in the country tomorrow, January 6, 2023. This is the automaker’s first launch in the new year and joins the ‘53’ family comprising the E 53 AMG performance sedan, GLE 53 AMG performance SUV and the EQS 53 AMG already on sale in India.
The first launch also marks Mercedes-Benz India’s route map for the remainder of the year with several important launches likely to be previewed tomorrow. The Mercedes-AMG E 53 Cabriolet brings back the open-top bodystyle after a while to automaker’s stable in the country. The model shares its underpinnings with the E-Class but gets the AMG treatment with the Panamericana grille with vertical slats, LED headlamps with DRLs, sharply styled bumpers, two-piece LED tail lights, quad exhausts and a soft-top.
