2019 Mercedes-AMG CLS53: The coupe with four doors

While we don't agree with the category, we can't deny the CLS53 is a gorgeous standout.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

This year, Mercedes-AMG added a series of "53" cars to its lineup, all using a 3.0-liter, turbocharged, straight-six engine with some mild-hybrid assist.

We're not usually on board with this "four-door coupe" look, but it works well on the CLS53.

The 3.0-liter I6 engine puts out 429 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, sent through a 9-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels via Mercedes' 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.

The AMG CLS53 has a traditional, and small truck. Only 11.9 cubic feet of cargo space here, folks.

A mild-hybrid system, called EQ Boost is comprised of an integrated starter/generator sandwiched between the transmission and engine, and helps power the car's 48-volt electrical system.

You can tell a CLS53 apart from a more staid CLS450 thanks to its flashier grille, small rear lip spoiler, quad-tip exhaust and larger 20-inch wheels.
