Mercedes-Benz AMG E53 Cabriolet, Coupé and CLS53 Revealed

At the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

By //Automotive

The upgrade to the 43 series is here. Mercedes-Benz unveiled the all-new AMG 53 series at the Detroit Auto Show with the CLS, E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet models. The three carry a 6-cylinder in-line engine with exhaust gas turbocharger and electric auxiliary compressor.

Unique features of the hybridized cars include twin-blade radiator grilles in silver chrome previously reserved for V8 models, front apron in A-wing design, AMG-specific mud flaps, rear apron reworked diffuser inserts and round twin tailpipe elements in gloss chrome.

The German Automaker touts 4.5 seconds acceleration for the E53 Cabriolet and 4.4 for the Coupé, respectively, while the CLS also comes in at 4.5. Moreover, the CLS sees safety measures borrowed from the S-Class, specifically, a PRE-SAFE sound feature preparing the human ears for any anticipated accident noise when a high risk of collision is detected. Cosmetically, the CLS53 4MATIC will offer “EDITION 1” interior design options for the first time. Most notably of these options are contrasting classic Mercedes Black Nappa leather mixed with copper accents.

Preview the 2019 lineup above slated to hit the market at the end of 2018. In case you missed it, Mercedes-Benz also released an all new G-series.
