It dazzles at first sight.
With elegant lines, fluid design and long wheelbase, the CLE is unmistakably a luxury coupe. And yet its rakish angles and athletic stance convey plenty of edge. It’s the latest milestone in a long Mercedes-Benz tradition: merging the finest in comfort and innovation with the purest in driving excitement.
The CLE’s striking, fluid design houses a space of remarkably generous dimensions, materials and accessories. Two free-standing digital displays put maximum focus on the driver, and can be personalized with three different styles. Ambient lighting in 64 colors comes standard, as does a multi-function sports steering wheel. The new front seats with integrated headrests were designed exclusively for the CLE. At the level of the headrests, two speakers help deliver the power, subtlety and clarity of the Burmester® 3D surround-sound system Disclaimer with Dolby Atmos®,Disclaimer. They’re just part of an intricate, 17-speaker array that, especially when paired with Apple Music’s Spatial Audio, turn the CLE’s cabin into a private studio.
The latest generation of Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) and a new electronic architecture make the CLE the most intelligent coupe Mercedes-Benz has ever produced — and the most personal. The “Hey Mercedes” voice assistant allows you to interact with the CLE using ordinary, conversational language. Using data from the Mercedes me owner app, the coupe now recognizes individual profiles and adjusts lighting, climate and entertainment preferences accordingly.
Intelligence plays into the power and performance of the drive itself. An integrated starter-generator interacts with the engine to maintain an imperceptible shift from coasting to surge of power, while advances in transmission design have created a new level of efficiency. The CLE Coupe is available as either a four- or six-cylinder, and — no matter which you choose — it’s a dream to drive.
