Test – Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 4Matic +: the best anti-SUV measures?

Can’t avoid SUVs? Eden! Evidence of this Mercedes CLS 53 4Matic+ is often overshadowed by AMG’s V8 star, but offers an uninteresting six-cylinder. on the way! In the sedan range, Mercedes is a master of the art of turning water into mud. Thus, the CLS 53, GT 53 and E 53 inherit the same supercharged inline six-cylinder with a length of about 5 m, with four doors interspersed in all three cases. This doesn’t stop marketing from using the term coupe to designate the CLS and GT. Not to be confused with the E 53 coupe. It’s actually a two-door that also exists on this engine. don’t you understand let’s try again. The CLS 53 is slightly shorter than the E 53 but a bit more expensive and shorter than the GT 53 but much cheaper. Isn’t that always the case? Let’s keep it simple… The CLS doesn’t look like a taxi or big discount limousine. And while the design has calmed down compared to the bias of the first version from 2004, the profile retains the elegance of a pencil line that sits above the rest. But because of this flexible style, we should not forget about her characteristic overweight. Weighing 2,032 kg on Mortefontaine scales, the CLS 53 AMG 4Matic+ is almost 100 kg heavier than the BMW M5 Competition xDrive, which adds two cylinders and 190 horsepower to the engine. Nevertheless, Mercedes is giving up the race for power to focus on the pleasure of everyday driving. That means it rises at roundness and low revs while maintaining enough power reserve to ultimately lower the GTi’s caquet at toll exits. Shouldn’t have looked for it, but! The 4”5 measures from 0 to 100 km/h and the 10”5 measures from 0 to 160 km/h, surpassing the Audi S3 or TT S, for example. The same is true for 1000m DA. Mercedes took the opportunity to post the Maserati Ghibli Modena, which boasts a final speed of 23.6 seconds and 221 km/h chrono. The recovery capacity is the same ilk with 3”5 going from 100km/h to 140km/h on the drive. In this regard, the autobox has 9 reports that go through it like butter.

Especially since consumption is not particularly frugal. But the approval coming out of this 3 liter is staggering if you don’t lead it with a whip. At 53mkg at 1800rpm, the temperament is very decisive and approved speed changes are lightning fast. However, in terms of behavior, the balance between the front and rear axles is less convincing than the BMW 8-Series Gran Coupé. The body movement is more pronounced than the wheels of the E 63 sedan, both in braking diving, pitching when accelerating and rolling when cornering. In short, reading the official Mercedes brochure, which describes the Dynamic Select AMG’s driving program as the assistant of a “personal racing engineer” who offers driving modes that can be tailored to suit your track sessions, is enough to open your eyes. We will calm down for two minutes. The CLS 53 has nothing to do on the circuit other than salvage the one-man from the gravel trap. In return, she turns out to be an amazing traveler. The all-wheel drive system ensures that the power reserve is always available in all weathers, preventing slight torque overflows. Especially since the filtering of the suspension is less submerged than the E 63 S, which makes it more pleasant. Whether it’s an actual AMG remains to be seen… In terms of the overflowing mechanical properties and the resulting dynamic roughness of the behavior, the responses are mixed. But regardless of the season or driving conditions in terms of versatility and efficiency, the CLS 53 has its own character. While it certainly doesn’t show off the most of any sedan, his tireless character and generously restrained power over long distances are astounding. The cost is 30% cheaper than the E 63 S AMG, and considering each penalty, the consumption difference of about 5 liters per 100 km is advantageous for the 6-cylinder. In short, it’s a great way to get your feet in an AMG stirrup before moving from the wheel of an E 63 S or GT 63 E Performance to something really serious.

The six-cylinder has enough torque and power to fly through traffic, and the chassis setup is an amazing tourer. It’s not the most fun to drive because of its weight, but it’s one of the safest.
