2021 CLS 53: Race Mode, Drift Mode, and proper AMG Emotion!

Ajouté le 1 sept. 2021


There are so many 53 #AMG cars now! E53 in sedan/wagon/coupe/cab, GLE 53, GT 4 Door… and then the CLS. Seemingly redundant vs the E53 and GT53? Think again! Pleasantly surprised by the updates #MercedesAMG has done to the #CLS. Let’s check them all out!

Bug changes come visually on the front end with a much more suitable AMG-specific grille, which is always what the car looks like it should have had, now matching the front look of its AMG GT cousin. Lower mouth also much more AMG style, and some nice new multi spokes finish the look of our stunning Designo Mystic Blue car.

Changes technically are sparse, unless you get the AMG Dynamics Plus Package. It adds Race Mode, Drift mode from the E63, red AMG brake calipers and the steering wheel controls to modify all the drive control options. No performance exhaust, but don’t worry: loudest 53 I’ve driven so far!

Power etc is the same: 435 BHP and 520NM base power. But add in the hybrid EQ boost, for another 22BHP and 250NM giving a 0-60 of 4.3 seconds (we test is faster).
