It’s not unusual for a new Mercedes-Benz to set new standards in safety, or raise the bar in
performance. When the CLS debuted, it ushered in a new era in automotive style, delivering
four-door convenience with the defining fashion — and the driving passion — of a coupe.
Does being first to do something really matter? Only if
what you did really matters. One way to measure that is
to consider what changed as a result. A quick perusal of
the Mercedes-Benz life story will show not just a lengthy
list of firsts, but a lasting impact from scores of them:
The patent for the car. The first vehicles with all-wheel
drive, 4-wheel independent suspension, and direct fuel
injection. And winning the first official auto race.
Pioneering innovation has never been the sole stock of
the brand, however. For decades, Mercedes-Benz has
also set trends in design that have altered the course of
motoring. Aerodynamics led the way on the new high-
speed highways of the ’30s. Solid, clean- lined sedans
redefined luxury cars in the 1970s. More recently came
the CLS — a shape that reshaped cars for a new era. By
fusing the sleek profile and sensuous cabin of a coupe
with a door for each of its four seats, it created more
than a new car class. Designers the world over rushed
to capture its seductive appeal for their own four-door
models. Today it’s evident in most any showroom: The
ripped muscle of the CLS has had quite a ripple effect.
Even in a sea of imitators, the 2017 CLS still stands out
because of what lies deep within: the unmistakable soul
of a Mercedes-Benz coupe. Behind the iconic Star in its
grille, a torrent of biturbo power and torque awaits your
unleashing. Its chassis is agile and poised, placing ride
and handling in balance rather than compromise. And
its cabin affords each of four occupants a personal zone
of comfort, divided by a sweeping full- length console.
In true Mercedes-Benz fashion, the five CLS models are
not merely fashionable. With industry-advancing driver-
assistance systems and user-friendly in-car technology,
they’re also functional trendsetters. From standard LED
lighting to available 4matic® all-wheel drive, they balance
effectiveness with elegant efficiency. And with a wide
array of colors, styling options, and 18" or 19" wheels,1
they’ll express your personality as clearly as their own.
A Mercedes-Benz coupe can turn a favorite roadway into
a fashion runway. It’ll capture the eyes of admirers and
the hearts of drivers. In a CLS, you’ll make an entrance
wherever you show up. Along with four graceful exits.

The frameless door glass of the CLS traces the tensed arch of its roof — an apt metaphor for the
taut precision of its handling. Its cabin is lavished in supple leather — an equally accurate
reflection of its exquisite comfort. Every car has a body. What you feel in a CLS is its physique.

It catches your eye yet sneaks past the wind. Chiseled
lines and muscular shoulders take the stance of a wild
animal ready to pounce. And every element contributing
to its movement works in concert to seamlessly match
strength with grace. The result is the powerful elegance
of a genuine athlete — pure talent, in peak condition.
Under the sculpted hood of every CLS is an engine hailing
from a family of overachievers — all bestowed with state-
of-the-art technology and a pair of turbos. High-pressure
Direct Injection squeezes gasoline into an ultrafine mist.
Rapid-multispark ignition can fire the fuel-air mixture four
times in a row. With molecular precision and millisecond
speed, they can fine-tune themselves in the course of a
combustion cycle, for peak performance and efficiency
under virtually all driving conditions. And the emotional
benefits match the practical ones. A 329-hp biturbo V6
can rush a CLS 400 to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds,3 yet
return up to 30 highway mpg.4 The 402-hp biturbo V8 in
a CLS 550 sprints from 0 to 60 in 4.9 seconds, with up to
26 highway mpg. A handcrafted AMG V8 biturbo engine
propels the 577-hp AMG CLS 63 S to 60 in 3.5 seconds.
Turning the brute force of the CLS 400 and CLS 550 into
finesse is their 9G-TRONIC transmission. Nine speeds
span a wide range but are closely spaced, equally ideal
for rapid acceleration and relaxed cruising. Selectable
modes and shift paddles suit your driving mood, with
the Sport Package* adding a pushbutton Manual mode
that holds until you return to one of the other programs.
The year- round confidence of 4matic® all -wheel drive is
available with any of the CLS engines. Light, nimble and
efficient, it continually sends torque to the tires that can
best turn grip into go — from a wet patch to a dry corner.5
The CLS chassis takes to corners with gusto, yet takes
rough roads in stride. The 4-wheel multilink suspension
features Comfort tuning on the CLS 400. Or you can opt
