The CLE-Class now has an AMG variant, the AMG CLE 53 Coupe. Like the non-AMG car, it aims to blend C-Class sportiness with the space and luxury of the E-Class. The new AMG coupe will be powered by AMG’s take on Mercedes’ 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine. In addition to turbocharging, the engine is equipped with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that can provide up to 23 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. Total output is 443 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, the latter of which can rise to 443 lb-ft for 12 seconds with an overboost function. All this is hooked to AMG’s 9-speed automatic gearbox and standard all-wheel drive with four-wheel steering.
