The Mercedes AMG CLS 53 Exceeds its Reputation


The CLS 53 is quick, comfortable, reliable and all round performer dipping its toes in all areas of what a car should be. The CLS 53 it’s quite friendly to the environment, too, as it uses a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six with an EQ Boost starter-alternator that powers the car’s high-tech 48V electrical system.
The CLS 53 is a mild-hybrid, and a quite a punchy one at that, with a total output of 429 HP (320 kW) and 520 Nm of torque. The powertrain is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system. The performance is exceptional, for something that can carry four people and their luggage in comfort.
Naught to 100 km/h takes only 4.5 seconds, according to Mercedes-AMG, and top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h, or 270 km/h if you opt for the AMG Driver’s Package.
