2013 Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG Front Drivers Side Three Quarters View
2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class

New For 2014

The CLS63 AMG is fortified with more power for the standard car and a new S-Model version. The regular CLS63 AMG sees the output of its turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 climb to 550 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque. Offering still more is the new S-Model, which bumps those figures to 577 hp and 590 lb-ft. The S-Model also includes an increased speed limiter that raises the top speed from 155 mph to 186 mph, a race start function for the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and the AMG adaptive sport suspension. All CLS63 AMGs switch from rear-wheel drive to a special high-performance version of the Mercedes 4Matic all-wheel-drive system that sends two-thirds of the power to the rear wheels.

Vehicle Summary

The Mercedes-Benz CLS touched off one of the hottest trends in the luxury-car world, the four-door "coupe." At its core, the CLS is nothing more than a rebodied E-Class, but what a body it is. The rakish roofline, swoopy sheetmetal, frameless door glass, and exaggerated proportions create a bespoke look that allows Mercedes to charge significantly more for the CLS than is does for the E-Class. No wonder other carmakers have rushed in with their own take on the concept -- Audi with the A7, BMW with the 6 Series Gran Coupe, and even Volkswagen with the CC.

Overview

Longer, lower, sleeker. Those are the watchwords of the CLS. Compared with the E-Class on which it's based, the CLS is about three inches longer and two inches lower to the ground. The sweeping roofline makes for a more intimate cabin. The top of the windshield is closer to the passengers, and the center console bisects the entire interior, making the rear seat a strictly two-person affair. The space is extremely well finished, and for those who would like to kick it up a notch, Mercedes offers a variety of special-order Designo leather upholstery treatments. There are also Designo paint colors for the exterior, including two matte-finish choices.

As befits its positioning above the E-Class in the Mercedes hierarchy, the CLS has additional standard equipment and a more focused engine lineup. You won't find a four-cylinder diesel -- or any diesel -- here. Nor is there an available V-6. Your options start with the smooth and powerful 4.7-liter biturbo V-8 in the CLS550. Output is no greater than in the E550, but with 402 hp and 443 lb-ft, few drivers are likely to feel slighted. The CLS is also available in ultra-flashy, ultra-high-performance CLS63 AMG guise. 4Matic all-wheel drive is standard on the CLS63 AMG; it's optional on the CLS550.

The CLS550 comes standard with Mercedes' Airmatic suspension, which adjusts to changing road surfaces to deliver exceptional smoothness without any float. The AMG cars have a unique suspension that uses air springs at the rear with traditional steel springs up front, all tuned for a much firmer ride and more responsive handling.

Hot Euro Wagons Model Set
The concept of the hot Euro wagon got its start in 1994, when Porsche helped transform the pedestrian Audi 80 station wagon into a hot rod grocery-getter called the RS2 Avant. With all-wheel drive helping put the turbocharged five-cylinder engine’s power to the pavement, the Audi RS2 Avant offered staggering acceleration. It beat the McLaren F1 from 0 to 30 mph, and topped out at 163 mph.
2015 Mercedes Benz Cls Facelift Spied Front
With its baby brother, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, getting all the attention lately, it’s no surprise that the larger Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has fallen by the wayside. According to these spy photos, though, the original “four-door coupe” should be getting a refresh sometime soon with updated looks up front and a new interior infotainment system that mirrors the new system in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
2014 Mercedes Benz Cls63 S Amg Video
It's been several years since the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class ushered in the era of four-door "coupes" that engendered the Audi A7 and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, and now the folks at Motor Trend are testing the fastest CLS-Class yet. With 577 hp under the hood, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 S AMG is put to the test on the newest episode of Ignition.
