2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLS 53 review - new 429bhp AMG worthy of the name? | Autocar

Here, Matt Prior tests the range-topping model, the AMG 53, which features a new 3.0-litre six cylinder engine with not just a turbo, but an electric supercharger and a mild hybrid system too.

What’s it like? Fast, refined and, as we’ll see, not without a dose of AMG character. Would you pick one over its rivals?
