4-door coupe design

If there were a patent on passion, it might be the only car on the road.

Like every Mercedes-Benz coupe, it's sleek, poised and rakish. Like no car before it, the CLS-Class welcomes its four passengers through four inviting doors. Frameless door glass and a tautly arched roofline define a muscular shape that started a trend, influencing every four-door that followed in its tracks.

Impeccably tailored cabin

A door, and a seat, for everyone. A magic that's shared with no other car.

The exquisitely crafted CLS cabin is designed not just to fit you and your passengers, but to suit you. Four individual seats are divided by a full-length console. Supple leather, handcrafted wood and elegant details envelop a suite of attentive, intuitive and enjoyable technologies. It's a feeling of total connectedness, and complete escape.

designo paint and trim

Individually chosen. Exquisitely crafted.

The exclusive paintwork and upholstery of designo celebrate the style of the CLS and its driver. Five designo paint colors include two with an exotic matte finish. Nine superbly soft leathers are individually matched for grain and color, and tailored by hand. Several pre-configured packages are available, or go a la carte and create your own.


Three biturbo engines

Where sparks learn to fly, and air gets to breathe.

Three advanced Direct Injection V-8s deliver more power from less fuel, with fewer emissions. Twin turbos, rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection respond with lightning speed. Along with breathtaking acceleration, the 402-hp CLS550, 550-hp CLS63 AMG 4MATIC® and 577-hp CLS63 AMG S 4MATIC each return refreshing efficiency.

Introduction dates vary. Please see your dealer.

Adaptive suspensions

Where pressure becomes poise, and control turns to pleasure.

Multi-mode AIRMATIC® suspension turns pressurized air into calm composure in the CLS550. It expertly balances sharp handling reflexes with a relaxing ride, and even lowers the car at higher speeds to cut drag and enhance stability. The CLS63 AMG Adaptive Sport Suspension teams rear air springs with a racing-inspired steel-spring front axle.

The confidence of 4MATIC
Mercedes Benz youtube

Where every wheel drives, and every driver rejoices.

From winter's peak to a corner's apex, an all-wheel drive CLS digs in with enthusiasm. Available on the CLS550, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive continually distributes the engine's torque to the wheels that can use it best. A new AMG-developed performance 4MATIC system, standard on the CLS63 models, puts power to the pavement like never before.

No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.

Two new AMG 4MATIC models

"One man, one engine." Now available in two models.

With more power than ever, the 550-hp CLS63 AMG 4MATIC and 577-hp CLS63 AMG S-Model 4MATIC also have a new way to turn it into pure performance. Their new AMG 4MATIC® system turns its increased grip into stunning acceleration. Yet its 33:67 front/rear torque split preserves the balance and agility that win racing trophies and driver's hearts.


Advanced driver assists
Mercedes Benz youtube

The foresight to prepare, the fortitude to protect.

A legacy of safety leadership looks out for your future with such standard breakthroughs as PRE-SAFE® and ATTENTION ASSIST®. The available Driver Assistance Package enhances the present, with Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, and the stop-and-go ease of DISTRONIC PLUS® cruise control.

Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. ATTENTION ASSIST and/or Lane Keeping Assist may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.

Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.

DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not react to stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and lane layout of the road or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver´s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. After braking the car for stopped traffic ahead, system resumes automatically only if traffic pauses for less than 3 seconds.

Music, navigation and more

Reaches far and wide, and brings it all home.

CLS technology works like a natural extension of your thinking. The COMAND® system unites audio, navigation and personalized vehicle settings with an elegant central controller and a vivid color display. Bluetooth® audio streaming, a 10GB Music Register and Media Interface are presented in 610 watts of harman/kardon® surround sound.

While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system's audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.
