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 new 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 new twin-power-dome hood to its wide taillamps, it advances timelessness into a new era, again. From its turbine-style vents and cascading console to its exquisitely tailored seats, the CLS takes every measure of its cabin to a higher level. In comfort it's generous, from a spacious 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. 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.
The seamless power and natural balance of an inline-6 have returned 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. 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. 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.
