Introduction of the 2024 Mercedes-AMG CLE 53 Coupe

The Mercedes-Benz CLE Coupe family welcomes a new member, the Mercedes-AMG CLE 53 Coupe, announced in overseas markets and set to debut in U.S. dealerships this summer. While specific pricing for the U.S. market remains undisclosed, this model bridges the gap between standard offerings and higher-performance variants like the CLE 63.

Performance and Powertrain Specifications

Powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six, alongside a 48-volt electrical system and an integrated starter generator, the CLE 53 Coupe delivers 443 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque, or 443 lb-ft with Overboost engaged for up to 10 seconds. This formidable powertrain promises a thrilling acceleration experience, with a claimed 0-60 mph time of just 4 seconds.

Innovative Driving Dynamics

Equipped with an AMG Speedshift TCT 9G transmission and a fully variable all-wheel-drive system, the CLE 53 Coupe offers agile handling, aided by active rear-axle steering and various driving modes tailored for diverse driving conditions. The rear wheels turn up to 2.5 degrees in the opposite direction to the front wheels at lower speeds, enhancing maneuverability, while at higher speeds, they turn in parallel for stability.

Dynamic Driving Modes and Performance Enhancements

Featuring five AMG Dynamic Select drive modes, including Sport+ and Individual settings, alongside options like the Dynamic Plus Package, the CLE 53 Coupe ensures a customizable driving experience, with enhancements such as active engine mounts and a Race drive program. Buyers can opt for the Dynamic Plus Package, adding a Drift mode and advanced performance features like microfiber steering wheel and red-painted brake calipers.

Engineering and Technology

Despite not being hand-assembled in Affalterbach, the CLE 53 Coupe’s engineering showcases AMG’s innovation, with features like the 48-volt integrated starter generator and rear-wheel drive in Drift mode, promising both power and precision on the road. While some may note comparisons to competitors’ powertrains, the CLE 53 Coupe distinguishes itself with its blend of performance and efficiency.

Customization Options

Buyers can further personalize their CLE 53 Coupe with optional packages like the AMG Performance Studio Package, offering aesthetic enhancements and additional performance features, elevating the driving experience in this sophisticated machine. With its combination of cutting-edge technology, dynamic driving dynamics, and customizable options, the Mercedes-AMG CLE 53 Coupe emerges as a compelling choice for enthusiasts seeking exhilarating performance and refined luxury in one package.

And the Convertible

And just a few days since the unveiling of the new CLE 53, Mercedes-AMG has also introduced us to the convertible variant of the CLE model. The CLE 53 Cabriolet comes with a fabric drop-top and the model’s availability and pricing will be announced soon.
