Brilliant in every detail

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

From its muscular stance to its scintillating details, the CLS combines power and poise to be a true Mercedes-Benz coupe. From its diamond-block grille and LED headlamps to its four frameless doors and sweeping profile, it's a moving experience for the eyes. And from its AMG styling to its 18" and 19" wheels, it makes any driver's heart race.

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.

designo paint and trim

Your own distinctive style. Crafted with a personal touch.

The exclusive paintwork and upholstery of designo celebrate the style of the CLS and its driver. Exotic designo paint colors include deep gloss or modern matte finishes. Superbly soft semi-aniline leathers are matched by eye, and tailored by hand. Choose from expertly pre-configured packages, or go a la carte and create your own.


Three advanced biturbo engines

Biturbo engines: Powerful. Passionate. 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 329-hp V6 CLS400, 402-hp V8 CLS550, and 577-hp V8-powered AMG CLS63 S offer refreshing efficiency.

Smooth shifting, quick thinking

Geared for the future: Upshifting your enjoyment.

A smoother, smarter and sportier 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic delivers seamless response in the CLS400 and CLS550 models. In the AMG CLS63 S, a 7-speed with AMG SPEEDSHIFT® multiclutch technology changes gear with instantaneous precision, to keep the power on during the heights of high performance. And shift paddles are standard on every CLS.

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. The CLS400 and CLS550 4MATIC Coupes continually distribute their torque precisely to the wheels that can use it best. And rear-biased AMG Performance 4MATIC® on the CLS63 S 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. In the AMG CLS63 S, AMG RIDE CONTROL teams rear air springs with a racing-inspired steel-spring front axle.


Advanced driver assists

Virtual eyes on the road. Real action on your behalf.

Intelligent Drive's advanced stereo cameras and radar sensors add to safety, reduce driving stress, and offer a suite of driver assistance technology. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS can help brake to avoid or mitigate a collision. If the driver does not react to the warning, then it can also initiate automatic braking. ATTENTION ASSIST® can sense a drowsy driver. Innovative options can even react to pedestrians, cross-traffic and more.

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST 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. See Operator's Manual for system's operating speeds and additional information and warnings.

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

Vivid displays, visionary guidance, and virtuoso sound.

CLS technology works like a natural extension of your intuition. A big, sleek 8-inch screen presents animated menus with clarity. Its console-mounted controller puts a world of entertainment, comfort and knowledge at your fingers. Either of two navigation systems make any trip easier. And 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.
