2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS Pros

The Mercedes-Benz CLS loses the CLS400 trim but gains a general refresh for 2017. New features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a power trunk lid and LED headlamps.

2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS Model Highlights

The CLS is referred to as a coupe by Mercedes-Benz, and when viewed from a front or rear angle, it's easy to see why. The arched roofline and heavily sculpted flanks -- especially the accented rear wheel arches -- makes it clear that this is a 4-door sedan with an actual trunk.

The CLS is offered in two models for 2017. The CLS550 features a twin-turbo 4.7L V8 that makes 402-horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, while the AMG CLS63 boasts a 5.5L turbocharged V8 making 550 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque.

While the CLS550 comes with rear-wheel-drive as standard, 4MATIC all-wheel drive is optional, while the CLS63 only comes with 4MATIC. A 9-speed automatic transmission is the only available transmission on all CLSes. The 550 returns an EPA-estimated 21 mpg combined in the rear-wheel-drive model and 20 mpg combined in the 4MATIC.

The CLS works hard to blend performance with luxury, and includes strong insulation and vibration damping. Nicely contoured front seats will provide great long-distance comfort, and the AMG CLS63 upgrades to even more supportive sport seats all around. Active ventilated seats are available to keep occupants warm or cool and a driver's multi-contour seat inflates to provide special support as well as help hold the driver in place when cornering.

On the CLS63, in addition to the sport seats, there are special AMG door sill panels and brushed stainless-steel pedals, along with expanded leather trim. There's also a special E-Select shift lever, as well as a "Race" mode that can record lap times.

All CLS models include COMAND, the Mercedes-Benz screen-based interface, for audio, climate and navigation functions. Also of note is the available Harman/Kardon Logic 7 surround-sound system, which features 14 speakers, a 610-watt amplifier and a subwoofer for a studio-quality experience.

Both of the CLS models include electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, a Distronic Plus cruise control system that lets drivers follow at a safe distance, and a Pre-Safe emergency braking system that can spot slowdowns ahead and bring the car to a full stop. Attention Assist studies movements of the steering wheel to spot times when drivers might be falling asleep, sounding a chime and displaying a coffee-cup symbol. Rain-sensing wipers even feature a heated washing system and headlight cleaners. Active Park Assist will actually steer the vehicle into a parking space at speeds below 7 mph.

2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS Model News

Mercedes-Benz calls the CLS a "4-Door Coupe," but it's actually a sedan whose curves suggest a sporty coupe-style body shape. It occupies a segment that also includes the Audi A7, the BMW 5-series Gran Turismo and Porsche Panamera. While all of these models feature strong blends of luxury and performance with coupe-like design, the CLS offers about 70 more horsepower over the competition as well as a standard 9-speed transmission.
