Model overview

The Mercedes-Benz CLS is a range of executive vehicles manufactured by Mercedes-Benz as 2004.

The initial design was a four-door fastback based on the Mercedes E-Class platform, sold as a four-door coupé. An estate (Shooting Brake) variant was later joined to the model series with the second generation CLS. All variants are accessible as a high-performance AMG model, although it wasn't till the second generation CLS that 4MATIC all-wheel drive was granted.

The CLS series is slotted over the E-Class but under the S-Class in the Mercedes model series, and models tend to be less functional than the E-Class it is based upon.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLS is available in two models trims: the CLS 450 and the AMG CLS 53.

The base CLS 450 is equipped with a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine producing 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. An all-wheel-drive version named the CLS 450 4Matic is also accessible. More horsepower and torque are on tap in the body of the AMG CLS 53, which provides 429 hp and 384 lb-ft and comes by default with 4Matic. Both CLS models are paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
