Brilliant in every new detail

The expression of its designer's passion. A reflection of its driver's.

The redesigned CLS four-door coupe brings its muscular stance, scintillating details, and captivating style to all-new heights. It's more radiant, from its new grille to its innovative LED lighting. More athletic, from its AMG styling to its 18" and 19" wheels. And even more passionate, from its expressive design to its driving experience.

Finely tailored 4-seat cabin

Four individual seats. A singular experience.

The exquisitely crafted CLS cabin is tailored not just to fit you, but to suit you. Each of its four individual seats is reached via its own door, and divided by a full-length console. Supple leather and handcrafted wood envelop its attentive, intuitive innovations. It's an experience all aboard can enjoy, though it's shared with no other car.

Three advanced biturbo engines

Biturbo engines: More power. More passion. More pure.

Three advanced Direct Injection engines deliver more power from less fuel, with cleaner emissions. Twin turbos, multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection all respond with lightning speed. Along with breathtaking acceleration, the new 329-hp V-6 CLS400, 402-hp V-8 CLS550, and 577-hp CLS63 AMG S 4MATIC® return refreshing efficiency.

Smooth shifting, quick thinking

Geared for the future: Transmissions that upshift your enjoyment.

With seven speeds, the CLS400 turns exceptional torque into effortless acceleration at any speed. In the CLS63, it adds AMG SPEEDSHIFT® multiclutch technology for instantaneous gear changes, to keep the power on during the heights of high performance. And in the CLS550, a new 9-speed automatic is smoother, smarter and more seamless than ever.

CLS550 with standard rear-wheel drive only. 4MATIC option includes 7-speed automatic.

The confidence of 4MATIC

4MATIC all-wheel drive: Year-round confidence, all-around competence.

From winter's peak to a corner's apex, an all-wheel drive CLS digs in with enthusiasm. Available on the CLS400 and CLS550, 4MATIC® continually distributes the engine's torque to the wheels that can use it best. And AMG Performance 4MATIC on the CLS63 was developed to turn extreme power into exceptional performance 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.

Three advanced suspensions

Independent thinking: A trio of talented suspensions

In the CLS400, a 4-wheel multilink suspension redefines refinement. Semi-active AIRMATIC® turns pressurized air into calm composure in the CLS550. It expertly balances sharp reflexes, a relaxing ride, and reassuring stability. The CLS63 AMG Adaptive Sport Suspension teams rear air springs with a racing-inspired steel-spring front axle.


Advanced driver assists

Intelligent Drive: Virtual eyes on the road. Real action on your behalf.

Advanced stereo cameras and radar sensors enhance safety, reduce driving stress, and start an entirely new era of driver assistance technology. New COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS can brake to avoid a collision autonomously. ATTENTION ASSIST® can sense if you're getting drowsy. New options can even react to pedestrians, cross-traffic and more.

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every 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 system´s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.

Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. ATTENTION 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.

Music, navigation and beyond

Intuitive design: Vivid displays, virtuoso sound, visionary guidance.

CLS technology works like a natural extension of your logic. A sleek new 8-inch screen presents animated menus with vivid clarity. Either of two navigation systems make any trip easier. An intuitive central controller puts a world of entertainment, comfort and knowledge at your fingers. Two surround sound options bring euphoria to your ears.

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.
