Extended Mercedes-AMG family – Presenting 53 AMG, Micro-Hybrid System for CLS, E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet

After launching the new generation G-Class by Mercedes-Benz, the Mercedes-AMG subdivision presented some premieres at the Auto Show in Detroit too. The new Mercedes-AMG CLS 53, E 53 Coupe and the E 53 Cabriolet are the first to introduce a new nomenclature applicable in the future to other models in the German’s range.

The Trio of sports cars come equipped with in-line six-cylinder engines with a displacement of 3.0 liters. They have a gas-driven compressor turbocharger and an electrically driven compressor. Each produce 435 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque.

The models also include some hybrid technologies and will have “mild hybrid” propulsion units. This means that between the engine and automatic gearbox with nine steps we will find a Boost EQ starter-generator, powered by a 48 V electrical system
With the help of this it can also be injected for a short period of time for another 22 hp and 250 Nm of torque, providing a spontaneous response to accelerating and without turbo lag.

All three cars also come with a 4MATIC + integral drive system.
Under these circumstances, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 4.5 seconds (the AMG E 53 4Matic + Cabriolet offers the same value and the AMG E 53 4Matic + Coupe promises 4.4 seconds) and the maximum speed is limited to 250 km/h.

German officials say the new AMG CLS 53 4Matic + has an average consumption of 8.4 liters/100 kilometers and CO2 emissions of 200 grams per kilometer. The same consumption and emission values apply to the Mercedes-AMG E 53 4Matic + Coupe.

In the case of the AMG E 53 4Matic + Cabriolet, the fuel consumption announced is 8.5 liters/100 km and the emissions reach 201 grams of CO2 / km.
