The Mercedes CLS-Class has the exterior dimensions of a Coupe and hence depicts a very stylish and sophisticated exterior. The styling is a visible blend of the charisma and style of saloon and coupe at one place. The diamond lattice grille in atlas grey and the L-shaped headlamps along with the LED headlamps are indeed some of the striking features. The front bumper air intakes add a hint of power to the front of the car. The exterior mirrors, arrow-shaped direction indicators and the exhaust tail pipes are very distinctive features of the car. The interior is done very lavishly in such a manner that it will come up to the expectations of both the driver and passengers. The leather clad steering wheel and the gear knob give a very aesthetic feel.

The instrument cluster has white dials and a very illuminated appearance. The interior comes in four color ranges and wood varieties and two combination packages. The luxury of the car is reflected from both its driving modes and its interior. The AIRMATIC DC is a dual controlling system that maintains an adaptive mechanism in different driving styles through air suspension system. The COMAND application for multi-function controls, Parktronic for parking aid, Key-less entry system, automatic climate control and electronic seat adjustments are also present. The safety features of the Mercedes CLS-Class include ESP and BAS for efficient stability and traction control. The Adaptive Brake braking system monitors acceleration and controls any over-speed situation. The lights and visibility of the car are very much enhanced with cornering lights, bi-xenon headlamps and Active Alert System.

Mercedes CLS-Class Exterior

The commendable proportions of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class have set a trend for cars in its segment. Its slender tinted windows, long hood, frame-less lateral windows and dynamic roof that sweep back at an angle towards the boot is truly exceptional. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has quickly made itself a new style icon in its era. What catches the attention of many car lovers is the state-of-the-art front design, which is a resonance of the Mercedes-Benz touch. The radiator grille is not fixed into the bonnet but is moulded separately. This emphasizes the long, athletic bonnet even more. The grille comes with a large star at the center, which highlights the vehicle’s connection to other coupés of the Mercedes-Benz family and braces a strong brand identity.

The huge and extended dark air inlets along with the black grilles add to the car’s energetic look. Another highlight in this car is the bright headlamps that are all made of high performance LED and is one of the world's first to give a dynamic lighting function using this technology. This creation boasts a unique design that is separated into three arrow-shaped layers. These layers go from top to bottom which is compose of the upper layer that has a LED indicator and underneath is a shaft of light brought about by the LED on the lateral side. These LEDs also offer low beam functions and the side beam light can also be illuminated when the dipped beam function is turned on. This creates a distinct look especially at night. The bottommost level of the headlamp contains the night view and main beam functions with a total of 71 LEDs that do not only give unique illumination but also a brighter view of the road when there is not much light compared with earlier models.

The emblematic image of Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is elegant and dominating. The combination of dynamic, sporty and classy image has been highlighted with a new interaction of lines and shades. A distinguishing and well-built car that somehow like a sports car with a shoulder line above the back axle highlights the strong character of the new CLS model. The wide wheel arches will remind you of the powerful thighs of a predator waiting for its turn to leap. The lateral view is curved with extensive wrap-around tail lights introducing the LED technology which are organized in the form of a connecting component to the back of the vehicle. The figure is accentuated by the expansive shoulder line, which is undoubtedly noticeable from behind and backs the horizontal hardtop. A wide metal enclosure adds an additional visual climax at the tail.

Mercedes CLS-Class Interior

The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has set the step for four-door coupes, with profoundly, curvaceous, and coupe-like outlines that goes well over this car segment. Inside the vehicle is a first-generation CLS gadget panel that is a signature in the Mercedes-Benz line-up. The roofline's strong elongated shape portrayed its biggest divergence with the E-Class, lessening back seat space for the sake of style. As an alternative to a conventional bench seat at the rear, the designers have installed two bucket-like seats that are comfy for smaller adults yet needing more headroom for larger adults.

Engine and Gearbox

Mercedes CLS-Class has only one engine option: 3498cc petrol engine. It generates maximum power of 306 bhp with maximum torque of 370 nm. The engine is mated to seven-speed automatic transmission.

Safety Features

The vehicle comes with a lot of security features such as anti-lock braking system that automatically senses when a wheel has stopped turning under pressure when braking, and will control the foot-brake pressure to permit the wheel to rotate. This feature increases the vehicle’s capacity to change its direction while braking. It also comes with stability control that mechanically identifies when the car’s control limits have been overdone and decreases engine power then applies certain brakes to help avoid the driver from getting out of control of the car. In addition to smart brakes, it comes with airbags too. The front-impact airbags provides protection to the driver’s and passengers’ head during a frontal crash. Side impact airbags have been placed at the front seats to protect the upper body from serious injuries during a side impact crash.

Overhead airbags are also added to cradle all the occupants’ heads in case of a side crash or rollover. Aside from upper body protection, knee airbags have been put in place to protect the limbs of the occupants from serious damage in case of an accident. Moreover, seat-belt pretensioners that automatically tighten have been put in place so the passengers stay in an optimal seating position during a crash. The anti-whiplash head restraints are put as well to lessen the chances of having a whiplash injury. The vehicle also comes with a security system that prevents trespasser by forestalling and sensing unwanted vehicle invasion. The vehicle is armed with an ignition disable device which prevents the car engine from turning on unless the right manufacturer key is used.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is available in many colors, both inside and outside. Customers can choose from Almond Black, Almond Mocha, Ash Black, Ash Dark Gray, Black, Natural Beige, Natural Black, Red and Black for the interior.
