CLS-Class: Four-door Coupé a generation ahead

The CLS-Class is a unique vehicle concept which combines the elegance and dynamism of a coupé with the comfort and practicality of a saloon. With this unique combination, the CLS-Class is certainly a coupé generation ahead of the rest.

The technical specification also points the way to the future: adaptive front airbags, sidebags and windowbags are all fitted as standard, while options include state-of-the-art assistance systems like KEYLESS-GO, LINGUATRONIC, COMAND APS, bi-xenon headlamps with Active Light System, and the drive-dynamic multicontour seats. CLS 500 features such as standard-fitted AIRMATIC DC air suspension and luxury four-zone climate control provide luxury saloon levels of comfort.

The debut of the 2007 model year CLS-Class has also introduced the new Adaptive Brake System which gives HOLD and hill-start functions, while in emergency conditions the Adaptive Brake Lights flash to warn following drivers to apply maximum braking force. Also now standard across the range is PRE-SAFE® which closes the electric windows and the sunroof, electrically pre-tensions the safety belts and moves the front passenger seat into an optimal position (where fully electric memory front seats are specified) if it recognises potentially dangerous situations.

The four-door coupé format allows passengers in the rear convenient access and egress. They have the benefit of two comfortable single seats and enjoy generous levels of space. Newly-developed seats with electric adjustment as standard are provided for the driver and front passenger; on request they can be equipped with active heating and ventilation. Furthermore, the boot of the new CLS-Class holds up to 495 litres (VDA measuring method) – much more than other coupés and even many a saloon.

All four engines available for the CLS-Class exhibit effortless performance and exemplary torque characteristics, providing the best possible conditions for dynamic driving pleasure.

In addition to the state-of-the-art third generation CDI engine under the bonnet of the CLS 320 CDI now available with 30 Nm more torque than before (now 540 Nm from 1600-2400 rpm), Mercedes-Benz has upgraded its entire range of petrol engines for model year 2007.

The CLS 350 CGI is equipped with a newly developed direct injection V6 petrol engine which has an output of 292 hp and delivers its maximum torque of 365 Nm between 3000 and 5100 rpm. Both are leading values in this displacement class. When using sulphur-free fuel, it also offers some 10% less fuel consumption than its predecessor.

Standard appointments in the six-cylinder Coupé include automatic climate control with digital display, a stereo radio, speed-sensitive Parameter power-assisted steering, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, two-stage rain-sensing windscreen wipers, 17-inch light-alloy wheels and 245/45 R 17 wide-base tyres.

The new 5461cc V8 engine in the CLS 500 can hold its own in a performance comparison with thoroughbred sports cars, while offering the eight-cylinder comfort typical of a luxury-class saloon. Despite developing 388 hp and 530 Nm – 82 hp and 70 Nm more than its outgoing 5.0-litre couterpart – fuel consumption is only slightly greater at 24.4 mpg Combined. The additional standard equipment in the CLS 500 (as compared with the CLS 350) includes AIRMATIC DC air suspension, luxury climate control and 18-inch light-alloy wheels with 245/40 R 18 tyres.

Finally, the high performance CLS 63 AMG which replaces the CLS 55 AMG is powered by a 514 hp engine developed from scratch by AMG engineers. The 6208cc naturally aspirated V8 delivers 500 Nm of torque from just 2000 rpm with the full 630 available at 5200 rpm. 0-62 mph is dispatched in only 4.5 seconds. Its specification includes standard-fitted nappa leather AMG sports seats, bi-xenon headlamps with Active Light System, two sets of twin AMG chrome tailpipes and stylish five-spoke silver and titanium-coloured 18” AMG light alloy wheels.

When it comes to Mercedes-Benz ownership, the CLS is again a step ahead of the rest, making use of the Mercedes-Benz ASSYST PLUS variable service indicator. Furthermore, every CLS-Class sold through an authorised Mercedes-Benz Retailer in the UK comes with a three-year unlimited mileage warranty as standard. All cars feature MobiloLife, which gives an unrivalled 30-year anti-corrosion cover and breakdown warranty. As with every new CLS-Class, customers can choose to collect their car direct from the factory at Sindelfingen, Germany. This is at no extra cost to the customer. Outbound flights, overnight accommodation, factory visit and return travel are all included in the standard delivery charge.
