Mercedes-Benz CLS Engine

The CLS 450 Coupe and the CLS 450 4MATIC Coupe come with the same engine, M256 E30 3.0L I6 turbo, a 3.0L straight-six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and generate 362 hp (270 kW) and a torque of 367 lb-ft (500 N-m).

However, the AMG CLS 53 Coupe comes with a modified version of the M256 E30 3.0L I6 turbo engine that also has the ISG Mild Hybrid EQ Boost, which gives it better power and torque generation. As a result, the AMG CLS 53 Coupe generates 429 hp (320 kW) and a torque of 384 lb-ft (520 N-m).

Towing with the Mercedes-Benz CLS has become safer owing to Trailer Stability Assist (TSA). This system detects fishtailing promptly and takes counteractive action. This extra layer of safety is rooted to the Electronic Stability Program (ESP). TSA shares ESP’s sensory system.

TSA detects movement around the vertical axis of the vehicle through the yaw rate sensor and takes appropriate corrective measures: the swerving motion is deliberately suppressed by applying brakes to the front left and right wheels separately and alternately.



The Mercedes-Benz CLS is part of a line-up of executive cars produced by Mercedes. Among Mercedes-Benz’s car classes, the CLS ranks in between the S-Class and the E-Class. In the US, the CLS is available in three different models: the CLS 450 Coupe, the CLS 450 4MATIC Coupe, and the sporty AMG CLS 53 Coupe. Launched in 2018, as a four-door sedan, the CLS 450 is a successor to the CLS 218.


The CLS comes in three models, the CLS 450 Coupe, the CLS 450 4MATIC Coupe and the AMG CLS 53 Coupe. It should be noted that the AMG model is not capable of towing as stated by the manufacturers.

It is not made to tow anything.
