The Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 isn’t as practical as the cheaper E53 Sedan, but it partially makes up for this by being one of the most stylish four-door sedans on the market. It’s clever, too, mixing a smooth 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six with an electric auxiliary compressor to produce 429 hp and 384 lb-ft. The quick-shifting nine-speed automatic gearbox and 4Matic all-wheel-drive system enable a swift 0-60 mph run of only 4.3 seconds.
With its low and wide stance, the CLS 53 is embellished with AMG body styling and features like 19-inch alloy wheels, all-LED lighting, a power sunroof, and quad-exit tailpipes. The cabin mixes plenty of tech with unparalleled luxury. MB-Tex and Dinamica upholstery is complemented by dual 12.3-inch color screens, a 13-speaker Burmester surround sound system, power-adjustable front seats, and safety gear like blind-spot assist and attention assist.
