An icon reinvents itself.

The CLS wrote design history – and it has done it again. Thanks to the tilted front of the vehicle, extremely slim headlamps and a sporty radiator grille it writes the next chapter.

  • Sportiness

    The bodywork: athletic. The aura: sensual.

    The bodywork: athletic. The aura: sensual.

    An athlete with a strong personality. Its contours suggest sportiness. The details provide confirmation. Whether by the high, arching beltline, the extremely low side windows , the two-section tail lights or the broad shoulders, every inch of the new CLS shows how sensuous athleticism can be.

  • Dynamic front section

    A front section named desire.

    A front section named desire.

    The front section of the CLS is self-confidently inclined forwards. The particularly slim headlamps are not only as bright as day, they also radiate sporty dominance. The radiator grille opens out towards the road – ready to conquer it.

  • Diamond grille with Panamericana contour

    Once a motorsport legend. Now a style icon.

    Once a motorsport legend. Now a style icon.

    The diamond grille is a shining highlight of the front section. Its contour widens out towards the base, making the CLS appear even wider and muscular. Many motor racing enthusiasts will remember that this design wrote history. The new CLS is starting the next chapter: sportiness in an elegant bespoke suit.

  • Ambient lighting

    Seductive colour display.

    Seductive colour display.

    The ambience lighting included as standard presents the interior like a work of art. There is a choice of 64 colours or ten stylishly composed colour worlds. The first highlight of this spectacle is the welcome light when getting in. And when you adjust the interior temperature, you should watch the illuminated air vents: they change their colour according to the temperature change – a fascinating light display.

  • Lounge ambience

    Sportiness and sensuality in perfect harmony.

    Sportiness and sensuality in perfect harmony.

    While your hands stroke the wood trim elements, your eyes embark on a fascinating journey, starting at the fully frameless inside rearview mirror. Illuminated air vents extravagantly draw your attention. Your gaze continues to take in the two-tone interior colour scheme, which follows a wave-like design from the front to the rear and even integrates the B-pillar. It finally falls on the sporty rear seats, which underline the exclusivity with their individual-seat look. Iconic design meets the true quality of a custom shop.

Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive.

Energising comfort and exemplary safety.

Be it at rush hour, on a long drive at night or on an unfamiliar route – your Mercedes-Benz CLS noticeably relieves the strain, particularly in stressful situations. This is based on a concept that makes every journey in a Mercedes-Benz safe and unique: Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive. Because the time you spend behind the wheel is your time. Time for relaxation. Time to replenish your energy. So that, first and foremost, you reach your destination safely, but are also always relaxed when you get there.

Driving Assistance Plus Package

These complementary safety and assistance systems can take the strain off the driver, reduce the risk of accidents, and improve protection both for vehicle occupants and other road users.

The package extends the Driving Assistance package by the PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side system. This can give the driver or front passenger a gentle impulse away from the danger zone when a side impact threatens, by instantly inflating the special air chamber in the outer seat side bolster.

Remote Parking Package

With the Remote Parking package, the driver can decide on the most convenient way to park:

from the driver's seat assisted by the 360-degree camera and steering movements by Active Parking Assist, or from outside the vehicle with the help of Remote Parking Assist<p>The driver is responsible for controlling the vehicle at all times. The Remote Parking Assist self-parking function may not be permitted in all countries.</p>.

Head-up display

The head-up display shows drivers important information without them having to take their eyes off the traffic.

It projects a virtual image (approx. 21 x 7 cm) within the driver's field of vision. This image appears to float above the bonnet around 2 metres in front of the driver.

AIR BODY CONTROL

The multi-chamber air suspension has continuously adjustable damping for a high level of ride comfort and driving dynamics. It adapts to the current driving situation, either comfortable or sporty.

On bends or when braking, the air suspension effectively reduces body roll. Via DYNAMIC SELECT, AIR BODY CONTROL can be set for a more comfortable or sporty ride in three stages. At higher speeds the suspension is lowered by a further 15 millimetres to further improve stability.

MULTIBEAM LED

MULTIBEAM LED allows extremely fast and precise adaptation of the headlamps to the current traffic conditions. Individually controllable LEDs in each headlamp allow the light to be activated precisely where it is needed.

The ULTRA RANGE high beam ensures wide and practically dazzle-free road illumination. The LEDs are partially switched off when oncoming traffic or vehicles ahead are detected.

    Suspension – stylish in every movement.

    Sporty and comfortable ride at the touch of a button: thanks to DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL and AIR BODY CONTROL adaptive suspension options the new CLS offers an unrivalled way of travelling. And a special experience.

    The choice of suspension features:

    • AIR BODY CONTROL
    • DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL
    • Comfort suspension with lowering function
  • Transmission

    Transmission – gentle power.

    Transmission – gentle power.

    The best automatic transmission is one you hardly notice, because it changes the gears with practically no jerks and provides the right engine speed in any driving situation. And because it responds immediately to the driver's wishes. Its name: 9G-TRONIC with nine optimally coordinated gears. Developed in-house by Mercedes-Benz.

    9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission

    9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission

    Nine gears for unrivalled comfort. 9G-TRONIC impresses with even swifter and smoother gear changes. At the same time 9G-TRONIC helps reduce fuel consumption. It is the world's first 9-speed automatic transmission with a hydrodynamic torque converter in the premium segment. The wider gear spread makes a reduction of the engine speed possible. With unchanged excellent handling characteristics, ride comfort is increased and noise production reduced.

  • All-wheel drive

    All-wheel drive – stylish and reassuring under all conditions.

    All-wheel drive – stylish and reassuring under all conditions.

    Reassuringly safe in poor weather conditions, with impressively high traction when driving dynamically: 4MATIC all-wheel drive. This ensures that the new CLS retains its famous style on any surface and at any time of year.

    4MATIC all-wheel drive

    The photo shows the ghost motif with drive line of the Mercedes-Benz CLS.

    4MATIC all-wheel drive

    Better contact between the engine and the powertrain is scarcely possible: because all the wheels are driven directly, the car has excellent driving dynamics. For better pulling away and acceleration, in particular on unfavourable road surfaces.
    Instead of using differential locks, the 4MATIC system employs the electronically controlled 4ETS traction system and also works together with the Electronic Stability Program ESP®, which is standard in all Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.
