2022 Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 spotted in tests

October 1, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Reporters were able to capture an updated version of the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 high-performance coupe. The new model, which goes on sale as a coupe for model year 2022, will not receive many changes compared to its predecessor.

Mercedes caused quite a few surprises back in 2004 when it launched the CLS as a sportier version of the E-Class. Now, the company is preparing an updated version of the model, as evidenced by these “spy” images.

Moreover, journalists managed to capture the novelty in the high-performance version of the AMG 53. Earlier it was reported that a more powerful version of the CLS 63 will no longer be available. The prototype received camouflage only at the front and we tend to believe that it did not have all the exterior elements that will be on the production version of the car. We expect the rear to receive a redesigned bumper and updated taillight graphics.

The CLS is unlikely to receive the same significant upgrades as the recently unveiled new E-Class.

A test car spotted outside AMG’s headquarters in Affalterbach, Germany is a sign that Mercedes is likely preparing the facelifted CLS to debut in 2021. Nowadays, it may appear that the false radiator grille has been changed, and the front bumper may hide the new shape of the air intakes.

There is no data on what is under the hood of the new item. The current CLS 53 accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 270 km / h. The machine is equipped with an inline “six” with a capacity of 429 hp. (520 Nm) and an additional electric motor. It can be assumed that these indicators should increase in the new version of the model.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a long-wheelbase version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2021 sedan was presented. The prestigious brand presented the business-class sedan Mercedes E-Class in a version with a long wheelbase. The machine will only be sold and manufactured in China. No pricing data yet.
