2006 Mercedes CLS 500


Posted on by 1

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. Its spaciousness, luggage capacity and day-to-day practicality are at the level of a saloon, while the styling possesses the emotionally charged character of a coupé. With this currently unique combination, the new CLS-Class is 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 dynamic multicontour seat. In the top CLS 500 model, features such as standard-fitted AIRMATIC DC air suspension and the THERMOTRONIC four-zone climate control provide S-Class levels of comfort.

As a unique synthesis of a coupé and a saloon, the new CLS-Class offers a great deal more added value than other coupés. With this new model, Mercedes-Benz is once again emphasising its role as a trendsetter for new ideas in the automotive world. The sophisticated aesthetics of this coupé design and the trailblazing technology are particularly aimed at people who have a passion for motor cars and motoring.

Comfort and spaciousness to saloon standards


The four-door coupé concept even allows passengers in the rear convenient access and egress. They have the benefit of two comfortable single seats and enjoy generous freedom of movement. There is a distance of 829 mm between the front and rear seats, which together with the shoulder and elbow-level width (1422 and 1464 millimetres respectively in the rear) puts the CLS-Class firmly in saloon territory. Newly developed seats with electric adjustment as standard are provided for the driver and front passenger; on request they can be equipped with active ventilation or delivered as dynamic multicontour seats. Furthermore, the boot of the new CLS-Class holds up to 505 litres (VDA measuring method) – much more than other coupés and even many a saloon.

With the 5.0-litre V8 engine the new 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. This power unit has an output of 225 kW/306 hp and with 460 newton metres it gives the CLS 500 impressive torque, delivery of which is facilitated by the standard seven-speed automatic transmission.

The additional standard equipment in the CLS 500 (as compared with the CLS 350) includes AIRMATIC DC air suspension, THERMOTRONIC luxury climate control and 18-inch light-alloy wheels with 245/40 R 18 wide-base tyres.
