What is the CLS?
The notion of a four-door coupe might be a bit controversial, but since its inception the stylish Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has silenced most critics. Based on the extremely capable E-Class — which remains our top-rated midsize luxury sedan — the CLS is clothed in tailored bodywork that gives it a swoopy, modern look. Compromises are few and mostly center on the CLS' design choices relative to the E-Class: namely, a decrease in space for both passengers and luggage. Powered by a turbocharged inline-six cylinder engine with mild hybrid technology and standard all-wheel drive, the CLS offers a smooth, comfortable driving experience that's tough to match. Enhancements for the 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS include a new grille and bumper, a revised steering wheel, and greater breadth of customization options.
