The latest up-styled version of what many regard as one of the most elegant models ever produced by Mercedes-Benz – the four-door, coupé-like CLS – has arrived in Ireland.

Constructed on an E-Class platform – with all that suggests in terms of its roominess and visual presence – CLS is justifiably considered a ‘dream car’ of the Mercedes-Benz range combining executive-class comfort with a distinctly sporty appeal.

Refashioned and given an even sharper, more elongated, aerodynamic appearance, exterior changes include a new radiator grille, striking new air intakes and bumpers. silver-chrome exterior trim elements, new twin and multi-spoke light-alloys, and the choice of an additional metallic paint colour.

Inside, cabin upgrades include two new walnut and wood trim finishes, additional leather seat coverings and colour combinations, and a redesigned multifunction leather steering wheel.

Two petrol and three diesels are offered.

Petrol models are: CLS 450 4MATIC (2999cc/Nm 500) and a high performance Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 4MATIC+ version (2999cc/Nm 520) with fast-shifting AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission.

Diesel models are: CLS 220d (1950cc/Nm 400 torque), CLS 300d 4MATIC (1993cc/Nm 550) and a CLS 400d 4MATIC (2925cc/Nm 700).

A mild hybrid with an integrated starter-generator 48-volt electrical system whose output of 195 kW can be increased with a 15 kW boost is included in the mix.

All versions are equipped with Mercedes-Benz MBUX infotainment system with artificial intelligence and predictive functions. Standard specifications also include an extensive range of occupant safety and driver assistance packages.
