Review

Despite having four doors, you still trade practicality for style, but otherwise the Mercedes CLS offers great pace and tidy handling

get the best price

The AMG 53 also uses the same 3.0-litre straight-six engine with all that clever hybrid tech as the 450, but the wick's been turned up to 429bhp. That sees the 0-62mph time decrease to 4.5sec and supplies even more overtaking urgency but, to be honest, because the 450 is so strong and costs over £15k less, we think that's the pick of the petrols.
