The CLS as a coupé along with the roadsters and cabriolets, falls in the category of dream cars at Mercedes-Benz. The reason most frequently cited by customers for buying the CLS is its design: Sportiness is the true luxury in this customer segment. Now, the CLS features an even sportier look.


The CLS as a coupé along with the roadsters and cabriolets, falls in the category of dream cars at Mercedes-Benz. The reason most frequently cited by customers for buying the CLS is its design: Sportiness is the true luxury in this customer segment. Now, the CLS features an even sportier look. 

The entry-level model with AVANTGARDE Exterior as standard features a new front apron with striking air intakes, two louvres at the sides, and a front splitter in silver chrome. The rear apron has a black diffuser-look insert and a silver-chrome trim strip. Two new designs are available for the 19-inch light-alloy wheels: 5-twin-spoke or multi-spoke rims.

The CLS featuring the AMG Line Exterior signals its sportiness even more clearly: AMG styling components are fitted in this version. These include an AMG-specific front apron with A-wing in black, a front splitter in silver chrome, sporty, distinctive air intakes with vertical bars, and aerodynamically shaped flics in high-gloss black. Other features include AMG sill trim on the side and AMG spoiler lip on the boot lid. In combination with AMG Line Exterior, two new colours can be selected for the 20-inch, high-gloss AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels in bi-colour look: tremolite grey or high-gloss black. Only 300 units of the new Limited Edition are planned.

the CLS 300 d 4MATIC launched in March 2021, has a mild hybrid powertrain. Its four-cylinder diesel engine (OM 654 M) comes with an integrated second-generation starter-generator and 48-volt electrical system. The output is 195 kW plus 15 kW electric boost. Key features at a glance:

A new crankshaft increases the stroke to 94 mm and the displacement to 1993 cc (previously 92.3 and 1950 respectively).

The injection pressure increases to 2700 bar (instead of 2500).

Particularly fast response times and uniform power delivery thanks to two water-cooled turbochargers, both now featuring variable turbine geometry.

A sodium-filled cooling duct in each of the steel pistons. This helps to dissipate temperature peaks in the combustion cavity of the pistons.

Electric refrigerant compressor

This most powerful of the four-cylinder diesel engines also takes things one step further in terms of exhaust gas after-treatment.
