The Mercedes CLS offers a great looking and stylish executive saloon for those who want a car that is different. Along with excellent performance, the CLS also has an impressive build quality.
There's a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines along with the option of all-wheel drive. The entry-level CLS 250 CDI diesel is the cheapest of the range to run and will return around 55mpg with CO2 emissions of 135g/km. The top of the range CLS 63 AMG will return around 29mpg though drivers interested in this car should take a closer look at the CLS 350 BlueTEC which has low running costs and strong performance.
For anyone wanting to savour the full Mercedes experience in a car that will impress, then the CLS is probably a good starting point. Now in its second generation, the CLS has all of the attributes that has made this carmaker famous: style, handling and quality. As four door coupes go, the CLS is the most practical and best looking of its type available today.
In addition, the build quality is incredible and the performance of the entire range is strong – helped by an impressive suspension system designed to deliver comfort and handling. The CLS is not just a wonderful car to drive it's also one to enjoy and has a well-designed and well-made cabin that impresses.
It's also a very safe car and comes with electronic traction and stability control as well as eight airbags. Standard equipment includes alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, LED lights, DAB radio, parking assistance and rain sensing windscreen wipers. There are also various option packs to boost comfort levels.
Designed for comfort, the CLS is a great performer on motorways - it has effortless cruising and overtaking abilities - and the suspension is set-up to help smooth-out bumpy roads. There is an option to have air suspension fitted which improves considerably the ride and the car's agility. A lot of thought has been put into the design of the car, not just with its stylish exterior but also its interior which is more spacious than the car's size would lead you to believe. The boot is also large and easy to access and there's also a new electric steering system to help drivers enjoy the ride. The components used for the cabin are of top quality and everything feels designed and made to last with some real attention to detail going into producing the car.
Essentially, the Mercedes CLS is a stylish four-door coupe which combines the very best of the class but with a sporty driving character. Probably the best car in its segment.
