The 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550 brags a meaner, more coupe-like design and driving dynamics to match. Ride and handling have both been improved, and a more powerful engine has arrived. Within, you'll find a better-defined cockpit and a larger roster of tech highlights.
The CLS receives a slight freshening for 2009, with a new grille and rear exhaust outlets, a sporty three-spoke steering wheel and integrated side mirror turn signals. There is also a new central display operating the CD stacker and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, providing voice control for the audio and phone.
Mercedes-Benz spawned the "4-door coupe" revolution, and the 2015 CLS-Class coupe proves it still owns the segment. New for 2015 is the Mercedes-Benz CLS400, a twin-turbocharged V6 entry-level model set to do battle with the Audi A7 and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. A more powerful front-end design lessens the original car's sleek, streamlined appearance, but keeps the CLS in line with MB's other 4-door models. Power, speed and superb handling are the 2015 CLS' trademarks, combined with a sense of exclusivity that seems to elude lesser brands. Those who desire an even more exclusive calling card will appreciate the 577-horsepower provided by CLS63 AMG S 4Matic, although they might not be as enamored by its $100,000-plus price tag.
