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.
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.
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.
A signature of every Mercedes-Benz coupe is its impeccably finished 4-passenger cabin. The CLS started a new tradition by welcoming its occupants through their own individual doors. Once inside, they'll each enjoy a seat that's individually tailored for their sole accommodation and situated in its own comfort zone alongside the full-length central console.
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.
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.
A network of efficient LEDs and fiber optics casts a gentle glow from beneath the trim on the dashboard and door panels, both to welcome occupants into the cabin and to help make nighttime driving feel more secure. For an added touch of personality, any of three illumination color profiles (Polar, Solar and Neutral) can be selected.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
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.
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.
High-strength/low-alloy (HSLA) steel provides greater resistance to bending and flexing than conventional steel of similar weight. HSLA and ultra-high-strength steel are used in critical areas of the body structure, such as the roof pillars, floor and roof crossmembers, door beams and various reinforcements throughout the body.
In the case of a rear impact exceeding a preset threshold, NECK-PRO front head restraints move forward and slightly upward, reducing the distance between the head restraints and the heads of front-seat occupants. This action helps to reduce the possibility or severity of whiplash-type neck injuries.
