AMG’s new model uses a six cylinder engine helped by a turbo, an electric supercharger and a mild hybrid system
The new Mercedes-Benz CLS is here. Now in its third generation, the 2018 CLS continues where its forebears left off: a large coupe-like four door that competes with the Audi A7 and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé.
Here, Matt Prior tests the range-topping model, the AMG 53, which features a new 3.0-litre six cylinder engine with not just a turbo, but an electric supercharger and a mild hybrid system too.
What’s it like? Fast, refined and, as we’ll see, not without a dose of AMG character. Would you pick one over its rivals? Click here to subscribe to Autocar’s YouTube channel.
