Grey Mercedes-AMG CLS Rear Driving

The regular CLS has always combined supreme elegance with stirring performance, and the AMG version you see here takes it to another level.

In essence, what you get is a more potent engine placed beneath the bonnet alongside a host of suspension enhancements, which really bring more life to the experience of driving.

Reasons to consider a used Mercedes-AMG CLS include:

  • Potent performance
  • All-wheel drive grip
  • Luxurious interior design
  • Head-turning appearance

Engines and Driving Experience

Mercedes-AMG CLS Engine

The only variant for the generation pictured here is the ‘53’, where under the bonnet you will find a 3.0-litre bi-turbo straight-six petrol engine that develops 435hp and torque of 383lb ft.

It is augmented by an electric auxiliary compressor for instant boost and faster throttle response. The EQ Boost starter-alternator adds a 22bhp and 184lb ft of torque and an engine-off coasting function.

The net effect of all this engineering innovation? 0 to 62mph takes just 4.5 seconds, yet combined CO2 emissions are just 200g/km. The AMG Speedshift TCT 9G transmission and 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution ensures high levels of traction whatever the road conditions.

The AMG Ride Control+ air suspension constantly adjusts damping for outstanding driving dynamics with high ride comfort.

Practicality and Running Costs

Mercedes-AMG CLS Boot

Do not be fooled by the sloping roofline that comes with the coupé silhouette, the Mercedes-AMG CLS is surprisingly well-suited to smaller families because it has four large doors, plenty of space inside, and a big boot.

In fact, with 505 litres of space at your disposal, the CLS's boot is far bigger than most regular family vehicles, and thanks to the hatchback inspired tailgate, the opening is huge.

Running costs will be on the higher side when compared to the regular CLS, but even then you should average around 31mpg on a combined cycle, which when you consider the performance and luxury on offer, is pretty reasonable.

Being an AMG, servicing costs will also be higher than most regular cars, as will replacement consumables such as tyres and brakes. Excellent care for your vehicle is available through all Stratstone Mercedes-Benz retailers.

Interior, Technology, and Safety

Taking centre stage is the brand's MBUX infotainment system, which can be controlled either by ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice command or touch.

A widescreen (12.3-inch) high resolution cockpit display offers a choice of three display styles, while an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot, 3D satellite navigation mapping, smartphone integration and a Burmester sound system all come as standard. Luxurious touches include 64-colour interior ambient lighting, Keyless GO and memory seats, while you can also opt for a head-up display.

The long list of standard safety systems includes the Pre-Safe anticipatory safety system, Lane Keeping Assist, Active Brake Assist and the Active Bonnet pedestrian safety feature.

The Mercedes me connect service includes an emergency call system (eCall), accident recovery, breakdown assist, and maintenance management. There’s also a 360-degree camera for parking and manoeuvring into tricky spots.

Is the Mercedes-AMG CLS right for me?

There is something fundamentally right about a performance coupé. They have the looks to turn heads, yet the performance will ensure you are grinning from ear to ear long after your journey has ended. If that appeals to you, then the Mercedes-AMG CLS is well worth your consideration.

If you do not mind compromising slightly on the luxury of the interior, then a BMW M4 will offer more grunt and outright performance, but it would also be difficult to ignore something as potent as an Audi RS7 should you want something that blends brawn and looks in an easy-to-live-with package.
