The Mercedes G500 4x4 Squared Is a Great Road Car

  The Mercedes G500 4x4 Squared Is a Great Road Car It looks like it'd be terrible, but it's better than a G63.All that extra suspension travel afforded by the portal axles gives the 4x4 Squared a genuinely great ride, whereas other G-Wagens can feel pretty harsh. And while the flared fenders make the 4x4 Squared wider than other Gs, this truck is actually fairly narrow to begin with, so it's not impossible to navigate small roads.

Mercedes hasn't fully redesigned the CLS since the 2012 model year, so it's about time a new version arrives.

Mercedes isn't afraid to spruce up its design language every now and then, and the CLS features a noticeably sharper look compared to its predecessor. Up front, you'll find more angular headlights and a new radiator grille, which widens toward the base. The front end of the model slants forward, creating what Mercedes says is reminiscent of a shark's nose that's slightly reminiscent of the Ford Mustang's. Aerodynamics are aided by thin air vents ahead of the front wheels that help reattach the flow past the front wheel, and extremely slick side-surfacing of the glass and B-pillar junctions, quiets the interior. Meanwhile, the rear looks less droopy, thanks to the redesigned taillights. Mercedes also repositioned the license plate holder and the three-pointed star for a cleaner appearance.

The model will be powered by a more potent version of the new turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, and will also get Mercedes' fancy 48-volt electrical system and EQ Boost electric motor. Exact power output was not disclosed, but Moers said horsepower will "for sure be in the 400s." AN predicts around 430 hp, which is more than the current twin-turbo V-6-powered AMG 43 models put out.

Now for what's under the hood. The CLS450 comes with a new 3.0-liter inline-six supplemented by an integrated "EQ Boost" electric motor buried in the transmission housing (a nine-speed automatic is standard). The car produces 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, plus an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft available with EQ Boost over short periods. But despite its 21 hp, roughly half of the car's available torque at low speeds is owed to the electric motor. EQ Boost is paired with an approximately 1 kW-hr, liquid-cooled lithium battery (located under the hood) that supplements the gasoline engine's power the engine and electric motor can't be decoupled so there's no EV-only mode. Up to about 100 mph, though, lifting-off the throttle shuts off the engine for what the Germans call "sailing" the electric motor (that does starting and regen duties) refires the engine upon throttle application. Mercedes says the unit allows for fuel savings that could previously only be achieved with high-voltage hybrid technology.
