The pioneering "four-door coupe" design of the CLS, with its arching roof and tensed muscle, inspired even plain sedans to become more sensuous. For its third generation, the CLS has rewritten its signature with smooth strokes: freshly clean and free of flourishes. It's aerodynamically refined to evade the wind, but styled to capture admiring eyes. From its subtle forward-leaning grille and twin-power-dome hood to its wide taillamps, it advances timelessness into the future, again.
The tensed arch of its profile is almost iconic, but it's the details that assert the CLS as a style leader born of brilliant engineering. Frameless side glass adds to its sleekness, yet advanced sealing and rigid bodywork assure its visual rush is delivered in a hush. Distinctive wraparound headlamps and taillamps integrate 100% LED technology. And its standard 19-inch wheels, twin-power-dome hood, and double-crossbar AMG grille assert the athleticism that characterizes the CLS in motion.
Bold and muscular yet flowing, AMG lower bodywork enhances both aesthetics and aerodynamics. The deep front apron features large air intakes with horizontal strakes. Flared side sills bridge the wheel arches and visually hug the road, while the rear valance outlines the four round tailpipes and central diffuser insert. A rear spoiler is also standard.
The digital cockpit wraps driver-focused control in artfully crafted furnishings. A spectrum of leathers and nine trim options, 64-color LED ambient lighting plus available active multicontour front seats let you tailor the cabin to your driving desires.
Offered in four styles, the AMG Performance steering wheel features contoured side grips, Touch Control Buttons, and a 12 o'clock band. The available AMG DRIVE UNIT puts performance controls right on the wheel.
A widescreen color display with multitouch interface makes it easy to access a world of features, including audio, MB Navigation, phone and vehicle settings. In addition to the three input methods of the standard screen (touchscreen, console touchpad, and Touch Control steering wheel), it also responds to the advanced voice control you activate by saying "Hey, Mercedes." Predictive features can learn and anticipate your commands, while you can save groups of settings as themes and moods.
Dual 12.3-inch displays include a central multimedia touchscreen and a reconfigurable instrument cluster in front of the driver. You can select from several AMG-design instrumentation styles, including Modern Classic, Sporty and Supersport. Supersport can show extensive performance info, including a racing-inspired upshift prompt for the manual shift mode. Other data can include a warm-up menu, graphical G-force meter, and key engine info including hp/torque output and fluid temperatures.
A groundbreaking concept in automobile cockpit control, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience advances to the forefront of innovation. MBUX integrates digital in-dash displays including a touchscreen, touch-sensitive controls, Bluetooth® hands-free and audio streaming, and an available industry-advancing voice control system that responds to your everyday speaking voice and phrasing of commands. You can set up multiple user profiles of favored settings, and groups of settings can be saved as themes or moods.
Pneumatically adjustable lumbar, side and shoulder supports offer custom-tailored comfort. Active side bolsters can automatically increase lateral support in cornering maneuvers, or even in the event of a potential accident. Eight massage programs can soothe and rejuvenate your back and shoulders, including two spa-like "hot stone" massages, plus an "active workout" program to help strengthen your back and leg muscles.
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 0.0002-inch from entering the cabin.
The CLS is now a true five-seater, thanks to a full-width rear seat. Its contoured seatback offers lasting support for two or three passengers, and can fold down in a 40/20/40 split for a variety of ways to accommodate passengers and larger cargo. With two rear passengers aboard, they can enjoy a folding center armrest that offers dual cupholders and enclosed storage for small items.

In the future, cars will be able to communicate with each other over the airwaves. In the CLS, the future starts today. With its industry-leading Car-to-X Communication, every new CLS can automatically alert a central notification system of certain dangers, from detected wheelspin to the use of hazard flashers or even windshield wipers. The system can then alert other drivers with Car-to-X via in-dash displays or announcements, allowing precautions to be taken before reaching the hazard.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
Three buttons in your car can connect you to the help you need in a variety of situations.

And Mercedes-Benz Information Call can help answer questions about your vehicle, locate a dealer, and more.
