Mercedes-Benz EQS 53 AMG 4MATIC+ Review

The company has introduced the Mercedes-Benz EQS 53 AMG 4MATIC+ as a revolutionary step in the Automotive industry, and it is incredible in terms of innovation and performance. Mercedes has released its first electric sedan, utilizing one of the top platforms for creating electric vehicles. Mercedes is one of the oldest carmakers, but by introducing this fantastic electric sedan, it has made a path for other carmakers for the future. What makes it unique and different from others is its AMG badge.

Mercedes-Benz EQS 53 AMG 4MATIC+ Review

Indeed, it is not the first in the segment of high-performance electric cars which will enter the Indian Market as there are Audi RS e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan, which are already there. But it would also be correct to say that it gives tough competition to other cars of the same price range and segment. There are many features EQS 53 offers that EV car enthusiasts will love it.

Another thing that we need to stay clear about is the "53" badge with which this EV is coming. Usually, mild six-cylinder AMG variants are the one that comes with this badge, but in the case of EQS 53, this number might be deceiving.

The design and cutting edges that have been offered in the EQS 53 are something that sets a bar for other EV Cars to achieve. It is often said that the performance of EV vehicles is not that satisfying compared to other vehicles but EQS 53 proves all these statements wrong with its incredible performance. The vehicle's performance set a standard for other EVs that will enter the market.

So, buckle up and prepare to be blown away by the awe-inspiring Mercedes-Benz EQS 53 AMG 4MATIC+. It's an electrifying journey that showcases the perfect mixture of power, performance, and technological prowess. Get ready to experience the future of driving like never before.

Mercedes AMG EQS 53 4Matic+: Performance

Horsepower

The Dynamic Plus Package of Mercedes-Benz EQS 53 AMG 4MATIC+, the standard package for India, comes with a horsepower 761. However, when the boost function of the EQS 53 is activated, the torque it gives is 1020 Nm, which is mind-blowing. It is so powerful that not even a combustion engine-powered AMG could compete.

Suppose we compare this to one of the best ICE AMG, one of the variants of the GT Black series. The horsepower of it is 730 hp which is lower than the horsepower of EQS 53. Also, the horsepower of the S63 AMG is just 603 hp. It is clear from the comparison that EQS 53 will perform far better than many others.

Acceleration

The accelerator pedal of the EQS 53 will impress you a lot because of the force of acceleration it gives to the car. There is also a mode available to help take the vehicle's acceleration to the next level; it is called Race Start mode. The driver can get a feel of the Millennium Falcon, which is getting ready to take off just by putting the car on Sport Plus mode, which can be done by pressing a button given on the steering of the vehicle. It is so fast that it attains a speed of 100 kmph from 0 kmph in just 3.4 seconds.

Choosing the Race Start mode is advised when the vehicle's battery is above 75 %, as it will give you lightning-fast acceleration.

But what impresses the most in an EV is not the speed it attains in seconds but the acceleration it produces from a standstill. It attains the speed of 60 Kmph from a standstill in just 2.02 seconds. Furthermore, a speed of 80Kmph is attained by it in just 2.78 seconds by producing a very intense torque. It is amazing and unbelievable at the same time to see a vehicle of weight 2655 Kg running like a cheetah by merely touching the accelerator.

If you are running it on a highway, it would just take 1.10 seconds to accelerate it at 50-80 kmph, and it takes only 1.60 seconds to reach the speed of 100kmph from 60 kmph.

As thrilling as it is, you'll find that constantly indulging in such ferocious acceleration can be overwhelming, especially for rear passengers who might not share the same enthusiasm. The interiors offer a comfortable ride unlike anything seen in other AMGs, but the sheer power can leave even the most adventurous occupants speechless.

Once you've experienced the exhilarating speed, you might wonder what to do with all that power. The pickup forward is incredible, but it's not something you'll want to repeat endlessly. Nonetheless, knowing you have this much power at your disposal brings a grin that's hard to wipe off your face.

"Embracing the Silence: Exploring the Unique Driving Experience of the Mercedes EQS 53 AMG"

Various driving modes have been made available in the EQS 53, but what you will use the most is its comfort mode. It is an electric car with no petrol/ diesel engine, so it does not make any sound while running on the road. This is where it becomes very different from other AMGs known for their classy engine sounds. However, EQS 53 offers various soundtracks, which you may choose according to your preference. However, as these sounds are generated through the speakers and are artificial, you might get a different feel than you get in a typical AMG.

However, Mercedes has tried its best to give you a feel of driving a typical AMG in terms of sound as the pitch of the soundtrack goes higher with the increase in speed of the EQS 53 to make it feel more real. But it would not be wrong to say that it is not even close to the real sound produced by a V8 or V6. But, if you are buying an EV, you must be buying it for the comfort and the silence it offers. Therefore, it is advised to enjoy the silence of it rather than choosing an artificial soundtrack for a feel. Also, if you want some sound in the background while driving, you can use the speakers to play your favorite songs rather than fake AMGs engine sounds.

Two electric motors are provided for the Mercedes-Benz EQS 53 AMG 4MATIC+ wheels, known as "permanently excited synchronous motors" or PSM motors. As it has been given one motor for each set of wheels, therefore, EQS 53 becomes an all-wheel drive vehicle. However, the front wheels of the EQS 53 receive more power from the motors, which means it tends to steer a little more toward the front and lacks the rear-wheel-drive maneuverability that traditional AMG cars have.

Comfort and Handling

When it comes to handling a heavy and powerful car like the Mercedes AMG EQS 53, it is a challenging job, especially when the main focus is on providing a smooth and comfortable ride. The hard work of the engineers of Mercedes-Benz can be seen if you see the chassis of the car, where advanced technology has been used by them, which includes multi-link air suspension, adjustable damping, and anti-roll bars, which enhances the comfort of the vehicle.

This car will give you an experience of soft and push rides, which cannot be felt in other AMG models as they tend to be more firm. Not only in the comfort mode, but it will give you a smooth ride even when you are driving it in Sports Plus mode, and you will feel only a few sharp bumps; otherwise, the whole ride will be very smooth. The size of the tires of the EQS 53 is 21 inches, which makes it suitable for Indian roads. Also, it comes with cushioning on the sidewalls.

The steering of the car is very responsive, which makes handling the vehicle very easy despite its large size. However, when the steering is in the center position, it does not feel responsive and lacks feedback. The brake pedal also has a long trip and doesn't feel as natural, especially when transitioning from regeneration to the hydraulic system.

However, despite some drawbacks, the driving experience it provides on your favorite roads is amazing, and it needs to catch up. The vehicle's low center of gravity is a plus point for it as it makes the car more stable, especially around corners, and the passenger or the driver will not feel its weight during maneuvers. However, it does not beat the driving experience typical AMGs provide.

Suppose you are driving a vehicle on Indian roads. In that case, the ground clearance of your vehicle plays a major role in providing you with a comfortable and hassle free-ride. In the case of EQS 53, the company has ideally taken care of it. The ground clearance of the EQS 53 is not an issue because of the lift function the company has given in this vehicle, which can raise the vehicle height by 25mm, increasing the ground clearance. It can easily and comfortably handle almost all the speed breakers, but those speed breakers meant for slowing down a truck might also be a problem for this vehicle.

Interior and Other Features

The company's main focus regarding the interior of the Mercedes-Benz EQS 53 AMG 4MATIC+ was cutting-edge technology. As we see in traditional cars, engines and other components of the car are present under the hood of the car, but this is not the same in the case of the EQS 53; you will find no engine under the hood of the car, but you will find there some electronic components, controllers and part of the HVAC system which are not accessible to you unless you go to a workshop. The engine is not present there because it is an electronic vehicle, and we all know that it requires no engine as we see in traditional cars.

The most attractive part about the interior of the car is the hyper screen which it provides. The screen size is 56 inches, divided into three segments, and stretches from one pillar to another, enhancing the look of the dashboard. The central screen is for the various infotainment functions and is easy to access and use. The size of the central screen is 17.7 inches. Even the passengers get a screen that gives the details of the vehicle, media functions, and some cool wallpapers for entertainment.

The graphics and the quality of the camera are also very impressive and fast. For air conditioning, you get shortcuts and permanent icons; however, many of you might need to catch the old traditional buttons and get irritated by the trackpad controls given on the steering.

As it is an EV, there is no bulky engine or transmission, making it more spacious and luxurious. What enhances the beauty and luxury of this vehicle is the twin sunroofs that have been given here. The front seats of the EQS 53 are not as sporty as provided in other AMGs, but they feel very comfortable and give quality support around the corners. Likewise, the rear seats are also very comfortable and spacious, and there is no bump in the middle, which offers a lounge-like experience to those sitting in the rear seats. The legroom at the rear seats is large enough to stretch your legs and feel comfortable, especially during long drives.

The fit and finish of the interior of the EQS 53 are very impressive and are very similar to the luxurious S-class. Different materials have been used. The sunroof, ambient light and space, and the hyper screen given inside the cabin give it a touch of a luxurious spaceship. Talking about the boot space it offers, it is 610 liters, which is very spacious, and it opens like a hatch, making it easier for the users to access.

The battery of the EQS 53 is 107.8 kWh, the most powerful battery ever used in vehicles launched in India. It has been seen that it goes for a straight 580 Km with this battery during official tests of the EQS 53.

As the size of the battery is massive, it is obvious that it will take longer to get it fully charged. It takes around 4 hours to get charged from 0 to 100% with the common DC fast charger of 25kW. However, to overcome this issue and to make charging easy and faster, Mercedes is setting up a super fast charger at various locations on different highways, which will help the users of the EV of Mercedes to get back to the road with much more ease.

Verdict

The design of the Mercedes-Benz EQS 53 AMG 4MATIC+ is very different from the look of other sedans of Mercedes. It looks very sleek, low, and futuristic; however, there are chances that many car enthusiasts will prefer the classic Mercedes look. Those tech-savvy buyers who want to try this futuristic vehicle and get a feel of it will definitely love it, and it could be that vehicle they must have been waiting to buy.

But, what's important here is the price at which it has been launched. It could cost you a lot to get the feel of this futuristic vehicle as it comes with a huge price tag of Rs.2.45 crore. If we compare the price of the EQS 53 with an S-class, then it is 88 lakhs costlier. Now the question arises whether spending this amount for the EQS 53 is worth it. The answer is that if you are searching for an EV that is comfortable, luxurious, and offers great performance, then the EQS 53 will be the best choice in such a case. However, if you feel it is too costly, wait for another EV of Mercedes to be launched, which is EQS 580 4Matic, which may cost you around 50 lakhs less than EQS 53.

So, it all depends on your budget and preference. If you want to get the feel of this amazing and futuristic EQS 53 and can afford it, it will undoubtedly be the best for you. But if you are waiting for another affordable EV of Mercedes, you can wait for the launch of 580 4Matic.
