2019 Mercedes CLS Starts At $69,200, AMG 53 From $79,900

The 2019 Mercedes CLS went into production back in January, but the automaker has finally announced US pricing.

The entry-level CLS 450 starts at $69,200 and it comes nicely equipped with a standard AMG body kit, LED lighting units and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, drivers will find power heated front seats, leather upholstery and five different wood trim options. The model also has a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power sunroof and an MB-Tex dashboard with topstitching. Other highlights include a three person rear seat, LED ambient lighting and a 12.3-inch infotainment system with standard GPS navigation.

As usual, Mercedes will offer an assortment of different options including a $970 AMG Line package which adds a sport steering wheel, brush aluminum pedals and sportier 19-inch wheels. Other tempting options include Nappa leather upholstery, ventilated front seats and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Customers can also order a Driver Assistance Package which adds an assortment of features such as active lane keeping assist, active cruise control and active brake assist with a cross-traffic function – just to name a few.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 362 hp (270 kW / 367 PS) and 369 lb-ft (499 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission which enables the CLS to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 5.1 seconds.

Customers can also order the CLS 450 4MATIC which starts at $71,700. Thanks to all-wheel drive, the model is a tad faster as the dash to 60 mph (96 km/h) takes 4.8 seconds. However, the car is slightly less fuel efficient as it has a fuel economy rating of 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

For a little more, fans can upgrade to the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 which starts at $79,900. It features a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with 429 hp (320 kW / 434 PS) and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque. Thanks to the extra power, the model can run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in an estimated 4.4 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h).

Mercedes hasn’t launched the configurator for the CLS 53 quite yet, but the one for the CLS 450 and CLS 450 4MATIC can be found here.

Note: Prices exclude a $995 destination and delivery charge

    I actually gain about $18,000-$19,000 per month using the net. I ended up losing my job after operating for the same business enterprise for a long period. I required trusted source of income. I was not interested in the “get rich overnight” packages you can see online. Those all are type of ponzi sort of multi level marketing systems wherein you need to first make leads after which sell something to friends or family members or any individual so that they will be in your team. Working over the internet has many positive points like I am always home with the little ones and also enjoy lots of free time with my family members in various beautiful beaches of the world.
