A 362-hp turbo inline-6 teams tradition with technology. It's electrified with a 48-volt Integrated Starter-Generator that can seamlessly add up to 21 hp yet allow fuel-free coasting and lower emissions.
The CLS 450 4MATIC sends torque to the wheels that can use it best. Light, efficient 4MATIC® adds all-wheel driving confidence on slippery roads, heightens fun in dry corners, and even quickens takeoffs.
With nine speeds and shift paddles, the advanced 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is flexible, decisive, and adaptable. The multiple modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you fine-tune the driving character of your CLS.
The lowered multilink suspension's selective damping can firm up in corners, relax to tame rough roads. Optional self-leveling AIR BODY CONTROL adapts to roads, loads, and the modes of DYNAMIC SELECT.
Electrifying the inline-6 gasoline engine is an innovative Integrated Starter-Generator. It teams with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery and power supply for formerly belt-driven components like the water pump and air-conditioning compressor. These advancements help reduce weight and enhance underhood packaging. In addition to boosting power and torque for immediate response, EQ Boost offers a substantial reduction in fuel consumption.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. Thanks to the Integrated Starter-Generator, restarts are even more seamless and instant. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
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 has become almost iconic, but it's the details that continue to make the CLS a style leader born of brilliant engineering. Its 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 and wide diamond-block 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 tailpipes and central diffuser insert with a chrome accent.
A flowing sculpture of leather, wood and satin aluminum, the CLS cabin welcomes you to space and style. The roomy rear cabin offers seating for three. Shapely front seats envelop you in artful design and advanced comfort.
The CLS entices you with a rich palette of leathers and woods, and 64 colors of LED ambient lighting, even in the dash vents. Available Air Balance can infuse purified cabin air with subtle fragrance.
Smartphone-like Touch Controls let you swipe and select features and settings from the steering wheel. A new touchscreen and a console touchpad offer additional, intuitive fingertip controls.
Dual 12.3-inch screens are visually and functionally seamless: A central multimedia touchscreen for navigation, entertainment and many comfort settings. And a digital instrument cluster with reconfigurable displays.
"Hey, Mercedes, it's cold in here." "I need a coffee." The Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) lets you control many cabin features by talking. Among them is MB Navigation, available with new tech that can also overlay instructions on live video of a turn.
Power front seats feature intuitive, seat-shaped controls on the door, plus a 4-way power lumbar support. To set and save your ideal driving position, a memory system for each front seat recalls three stored positions for the seat, plus the positions of the 4-way power steering column and side mirrors for the driver.
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.
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.
Virtual instruments "float" over the hood in a full-color display of vital driving data. The available Head-Up Display can show driving speed, speed limits, navigation info and more while you stay focused on the road.
Next-generation options can help de-stress driving: Tap a turn signal to change lanes. Adaptive cruise can help steer, stop-and-go in traffic, even slow for exits. Safety sensors can prepare for an impact before it reaches you.
The CLS pioneered adaptive LED headlamps for all cars years ago. Now they're available with Ultra Wide Highbeams that can adapt to corners and other cars, while illuminating more of the roadsides.
"Car-to-X" technology lets your CLS communicate with a central hub to report and receive updates about driving conditions beyond your line of sight. If PRE-SAFE® Sound detects an impending collision, it can act to pre-trigger your ears' natural defense against loud noises.
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.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
