The CLS-Class is a unique vehicle concept which combines the elegance and dynamism of a coupÃ© 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 coupÃ©. With this currently unique combination, the new CLS-Class is a coupÃ© generation ahead of the rest.
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.
