Examining the Exterior, Interior, and Sound of the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53

Giancarlo Perlas June 25, 2022

“100% Emotions, 0% Emission” is how Mercedes-Benz defines its new EQS. The car showcases a very refined exterior with smoother and cleaner surfaces almost free of body lines, except on the lower sides and the hood for adornment of those key areas. It is indeed a worthy electric counterpart of the flagship S-Class. But as for the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53, is it really a “proper AMG”?

The AMG EQS 53 may not be in the same vein as the range-topping AMG S65 or the other AMG cars that we know of because all that Mercedes did was put a faux Panamericana front grille, sportier wheels, and a more defined rear diffuser into it and just lined it up under the AMG brand, but it does produce a mind-blowing amount of output. The EV is rated at 649 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque with 0-62 mph acceleration of 3.8 seconds. The numbers can be raised to 751 hp and 752 lb-ft with the optional AMG Dynamic Plus for a good 0-62 mph run in just 3.4 seconds. So, performance-wise, the car is an AMG in a sense.

In the new video below by Mr. Benz, we can further explore the AMG EQS 53, particularly its motor sound and interior features. It starts by introducing the car where we get a closer look at its frontal design, intakes, sides, multi-spoke wheels, ceramic brakes obscured by the rims, charging port, and rear spoiler. Then the presenter proceeds to open the EV where we get to appreciate its pop-up door handles that are integrated flawlessly into the doors.

Upon entry into its cockpit, we get to see the amazing AMG animation on the Hyperscreen and other graphics. Overall, the Dinamica, illuminated strips over the seats and side panels, and the thicker steering wheels are a nice touch but we are really worried about the seats of this one.

As the presenter noticed, the seats have already developed ugly creases, which is quite a letdown considering that the car only had 6,000 kilometers on its clock as of the shooting of the video. Moreover, it ditched the panoramic sunroof. Nevertheless, it does deliver a nice sound when started, and it gives a nice AR animation upon turning off its motor.
