The 53-badged Mercedes-AMGs offer something in between full-bore AMG scary-pants machines and run-of-the-mill Benz models. We tested the new straight-6 engine in the cabriolet version of the E-Class to see what it’s all about.
We like: Beautiful straight-6 sound. Classy design. Understated performance.
We don’t like: How much is it, did you say? Plasticky cabin materials.
