Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 Performance

Still, the $79,900 CLS 53 can’t hold a candle to the old CLS 63 S, which did the deed in 3.5 seconds.
It's everything extremely confounding, this Mercedes-Benz numbering scientific classification. In one phase, 200 used to mean a vehicle is fitted with a 2.0-liter motor. These days, 200 can mean anything from 1.3, 1.5-liter or well, 2.0-liter motors, with the numbering rather alluding to the spec-level and relative power the vehicle has on offer. This isn't the situation at the Mercedes-AMG division, however, with the numbers sending a more clear than the light message.

Take the AMG 63 assignment, for example, It used to, and still does, summon dread in the hearts of any future traffic-light crusader hoping to get their personality kicks with traffic-light to traffic-light execution correlations. It couldn't be any more obvious, at the heart used to be a 6.2-liter V8, at that point, it was the 5.5-liter V8 bi-turbo motor. And afterward, along came the new age of motor innovation that intended to build proficiency, decrease weight and knock the power yields well into the 'hang on with a death grip' execution circle. All from a generally little 4.0-liter V8 bi-turbo. Basically, the number 63 didn't look to befuddle and affirm join check. It was a notice; "this Merc nibbles". 


To make the Mercedes-AMG nameplate increasingly open, be that as it may, the Affalterbach-based carmaker achieved the AMG-43 execution assignment and its aim, as well, was clear: to furnish purchasers with a large portion of the rushes you'd expect in a 63, yet enveloped with a more "the-missus-will-support" bundle what with a 3.0 bi-turbocharged V6 motor that produces about 300 kW. 

In this way, while the 63 assigned almost 400 kW (with the G63 outperforming this) and the less substantial, yet at the same time exciting, 43s edged near 300 kW, a hole shaped. Consistently, Mercedes-AMG needed to close this exhibition hole and as science would have it another model assignment, specifically 53, would be called to activity and its goal also is completely clear.


To exhibit exactly how clear the aims of the 53 territories is, Mercedes-AMG utilized the setting of the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit to dispatch what is two progressive models for the marque. 

Fitted to both the new CLS and the E-Class Coupé and E-Class Cabriolet subordinates, the 53's in-line six-chamber bi-turbocharged motor not just creates 320 kW and 520 Nm of torque, it likewise conveys an extra 16 kW and 250 Nm because of the EQ Boost starter-alternator that is fitted between the motor and the AMG Speedshift 9-speed gearbox. 

While this signs the hybridization eventual fate of the AMG nameplate, this framework likewise serves to for all intents and purposes dispose of turbo-slack through and through in these advanced models. Like the prompt high-torque conveyance of electric autos that is conceivable gratitude to direct power conveyance on the wheels, this framework sidesteps the mechanical cycle for a concise period and conveys the ability to the determined wheels up until such time that the Internal Combustion Engine is prepared to assume control over tasks.

Vivacious 63 

Since we were at Kyalami, it was a perfect time for Mercedes-AMG to present the new confronted Mercedes-AMG C63 S also. And keeping in mind that it includes new trims like the AMG-explicit 'Panamericana' grille that presently turns into a backbone highlight on the C63, it brags a full suite execution related moves up to shave a couple of milliseconds of your past best lap times. 

A few features incorporate the recently tuned 9-speed AMG Speedshift gearbox that takes into account quicker upshifts and an electronically controlled back restricted slip differential that deals with better cornering footing. 

In any case, talking about footing, an individual feature on the refreshed C63 S is without a doubt the variable footing control framework that can be tweaked by driver inclination and, obviously, experience. Where a progressively crude footing control is either on or off, the AMG Traction Control deals with the hazy areas in nine phases of enactment for example; 10, 20 or half footing control availability.


Multi-day at Kyalami with a progression of elite AMG models would be squandered if not spent on the track. What's more, that is actually what we did, testing a few presentation parts of the propelled vehicles' capacities. 

Initially, however, the force away ability of the 53s was put under serious scrutiny and it was quickly evident that Mercedes-AMG didn't simply address tourists with its EQ Boost cross breed framework. While a millisecond-touchy PC may differ with me, from where I was sitting the vehicle reacted promptly off the line during a few commencements begins. An occupation all around has done at that point I'd state. 

Under tight cornering conditions, it was the CLS 53 that inspired me most with a sensibly undeviating way to deal with corner-taking, while the E 53 Cabriolet felt somewhat less responsive. 

We even put the C63 S through hell around the fast circuit and keeping in mind that its corner-taking capacity still satisfies the legend, we particularly centered around the variable footing control by swapping between various dimensions of electronic caretaking. Completing 180-degree corner recreation slides, the backside (it is back wheel-drive) was catchable every step of the way with the framework basically managing your favored measure of electronic info.

Last WORD 

There's no mixing up the purpose behind the Mercedes-AMG item portfolio. It's a matter of going quick, with the main inquiry remaining how quick, and precisely how many auditoria you'd like all the while. Furthermore, while many may regard the new 53 expansion to the range as a trade-off of sorts among child and full-fat AMG, driving the subsidiaries on offer, I'm sure about saying that it would be an uninformed opinion.
