Lifestyle. In a totally new light.
Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 4MATIC+
Sometimes a change in perspective is all that is needed to see things in a totally new light. In this case, the new MULTIBEAM LED headlamps change the surroundings, making them shine with a new brightness. So it’s possible to see what’s happening around the vehicle more quickly and more effectively. The new drive system, announced by the “TURBO 4MATIC+” badge on the wing, makes the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 4MATIC+ shine in a new light. Furthermore, its wide shoulders and clean lines cut an exceptionally dynamic figure on the road.

Turns every road into a catwalk.
The perfect all-round performance requires a perfect and unmistakable exterior. Distinctive features here include the new oval twin-tailpipe trim elements. One hallmark AMG feature is the striking spoiler lip, which reduces aerodynamic lift on the rear axle – and makes the vehicle feel like it is hugging the road. Peerless performance is just as important. Each driving mode gives the AMG exhaust system a unique sound – ranging from highly emotive to more hushed and gentlemanly. Whichever one you choose, the AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension keeps you at the right height. At high speeds, the vehicle is lowered to reduce wind resistance and further increase stability.

Dynamic design features characterise the exclusivity and sportiness of the Mercedes-AMG exterior. These include the eye-catching AMG bodystyling with specific AMG front and rear aprons, plus 48.3 cm (19-inch) AMG light-alloy wheels in black with a high-sheen finish and mixed-size tyres.
AMG Light-Alloy Wheels.
50.8 cm (20-inch) AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels, aerodynamically optimised, painted in high-gloss black with a high-sheen finish, with 245/35 R 20 tyres on 8 J x 20 ET20 wheels (front) and 275/30 R 20 tyres on 9 J x 20 ET49 wheels (rear).
AMG Performance Exhaust System, Selectable.
Emotional sound experience at the press of a button with the selectable AMG Performance exhaust system: the sound adapts to the selected drive program via two variably adjustable exhaust flaps.
The black features of the Night package make the exterior even more sporty and expressive. Trim elements on the front apron plus two round tailpipe trim elements are finished in black. The heat-insulating dark-tinted glass from the B-pillar creates a further expressive highlight.
Furore on the outside. Sport couture on the inside.
The sportiest vehicle shape counts for nothing if you cannot feel the vehicle and its performance in the interior. The Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 4MATIC+ therefore has an AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather. Not to mention illuminated ventilation nozzles, plus seats with AMG-specific seat upholstery layout and “AMG” badge. The selectable trim elements in carbon fiber and glass fiber further boost both sportiness and smartness.
Even the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT can adapt the vehicle’s characteristics to your wishes and needs: From efficient to comfortable to sporty to extremely sporty. Those who want to know how sporty they really are can accept a new challenge every day after downloading the AMG Track Pace app.

Continuous development has been one of the main driving forces behind Mercedes-AMG for more than 50 years. We don’t rest on our laurels. We always want to go one step further. One symbol of this is our new engine in the Mercedes-AMG 53 series. A 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder turbo engine with an output of 320 kW (435 hp). Additional performance comes courtesy of 48-volt electrification and the integrated starter-alternator with an output of up to 16 kW. In addition to this, an electric auxiliary compressor ensures outstanding engine response across the entire rpm range. Why have all this? For low consumption, dynamic acceleration and exceptionally agile response.
