Gulf Weekly Dynamic new arrivals

Three new Mercedes-AMG models CLS 53 4MATIC+, E 53 4MATIC+ Coupé and E 53 4MATIC+ Cabriolet are now available to be ordered.

The centrepiece is the new electrified 3.0 litre engine with twin charging, 320 kW (435 hp) output and an EQ Boost starter generator.

Visually, the new 53-series models have a distinctive unique look. The distinctive feature common to the models is the twin-blade radiator grille in silver chrome. AMG-specific side sill panels lend the 53-series models a more dynamic silhouette. Viewed from the tail end, it is the restyled rear apron with its classically round twin tailpipe trims which catches the eye. The spoiler lip on the boot lid is painted in the body colour, but is optionally also available in carbon-fibre.

The 53-series models combine a powerful 320 kW (435 hp) output with a sporty style and high efficiency. The EQ Boost starter generator briefly provides an additional 16 kW of output plus 250 Nm of torque and feeds the 48 V on-board electrical system.

It unites the starter and alternator in one electric motor and is integrated between the engine and transmission. This innovation as well as the intelligent charging via an electric auxiliary compressor and an exhaust gas turbocharger all have the same goal: to enhance the hallmark AMG performance and driving dynamics, while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

The extremely fast-shifting AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission, the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive and the autonomous AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air suspension also help to create the dynamic driving experience, its engineers promise.

The 48 V on-board electrical system is therefore paving the way for further hybridisation. The functions include boost, recuperate, load point shift, gliding and the virtually imperceptible restarting of the engine with the start/stop function.

The interior of the new AMG models welcomes passengers with model-specific, exclusive appointments, luxurious materials and significantly extended options. With the optional, fully digital Widescreen Cockpit the driver can select the display look in the three styles Classic, Sport and Progressive and configure the individually relevant information and views.

The interior is rounded off with the new, standard-fit AMG performance steering wheel in nappa leather with individualisation options such as wood inserts in piano lacquer or DINAMICA microfibre in the grip area.

The newcomers will be at the dealers from August. For prices and more details, contact Al Haddad Motors on 17785454.
