Mercedes-Benz heads into 2018 with the relaunch of a classic. At the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, the brand with the star unveiled the new G-Class. The off-road legend will undergo the biggest makeover in its history while at the same time remaining true to itself. Mercedes-AMG is extending its product range with the addition of three new models and at the same time introducing a new model designation: the 53-series models of the CLS, E-Class Coupé and E-Class Cabriolet (combined fuel consumption: 8.5 – 8.4 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions:  201 – 200 g/km). They combine powerful performance with sporty style and high efficiency. At their heart lies a new, electrified 3.0-litre engine featuring twin-turbocharging by means of an exhaust gas turbocharger and an electric auxiliary compressor. The 6‑cylinder in-line engine generates
320 kW (435 hp) and delivers maximum torque of 520 Nm.
