Introducing the next generation of enhanced driving from Mercedes-AMG. Taking a step further into the future, the exclusive first edition of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 creates a combination of heightened performance with a groundbreaking, electrified 3.0-liter engine, sporty design and high efficiency.

The six-cylinder in-line engine offers top-of-the-range performance and intelligent electrification, generating a colossal 429 hp and a maximum torque of 384 lb/ft. Meanwhile, the EQ Boost starter-alternator in the 48 V system allows fuel savings, making this vehicle an elegant brute on the open road.

Inside and out, the aesthetic of the AMG 53 redesign creates the ultimate envy with sleek luxurious lines. The front bumper features a black lattice pattern in the central radiator grille and an A-wing design for a dynamic silhouette. On the interior, comfort and innovation is key with endless appointments and boundless options. AMG-specific upholstery delivers sleek trim elements in carbon fiber. In the cockpit, the performance steering wheel in creamy nappa leather and panoramic screen provide a stunning appeal.

The AMG CLS 53 debuted at the American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2018 and will arrive at dealerships in the U.S. by late 2018.
