With coupe sensuality and four sensible doors, the first CLS turned the tide. The all-new 2019 CLS 450 leaps ahead again with a turbo inline-6 with EQ Boost and countless innovations in comfort, safety and driving joy.
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 all-new CLS writes its signature with smooth new strokes: freshly clean, impossibly smooth and free of flourishes. It's aerodynamically refined to evade the wind, but styled to capture admiring eyes. From its subtle forward-leaning grille to its low, wide taillamps, it advances timelessness into a new era, 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. From its turbine-style vents and cascading console to its exquisitely tailored seats, the new CLS takes every measure of its cabin to new levels. In comfort it's more generous, from a spacious new 3-passenger rear seat to innovations to soothe all your senses in harmony. It's visually intriguing, with multicolor LED illumination and a broad palette of leather and wood options. And it pairs technology with tradition as only a Mercedes-Benz can, to help you feel at once connected and free.
The seamless power and natural balance of an inline-6 return to the Three-Pointed Star with another Mercedes-Benz tradition: a technological leap forward. The lightweight, fully beltless engine is also electrified, with an Integrated Starter-Generator that can supply up to 21 hp, allows fuel-free coasting and can recapture energy during deceleration. Even on its own, the twin-scroll turbocharged gas engine outputs 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque for smooth, efficient response. Electrifiying the new 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. With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly but nearly imperceptibly. Along with a more seamless delivery of power, the lighter, more versatile transmission enhances quiet riding comfort and fuel-efficiency. The electronic selector and shift paddles let you control all gear changes with your hands on the steering wheel. And drivers can vary the shift modes via the innovative DYNAMIC SELECT system.
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. For the first time, the CLS is 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. 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.
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. The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST(R) 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 new dashboard display.
