Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
