2015 CLS

Sensuality and sense have never been closer.

It’s an irresistible character – even at a standstill, the 2015 CLS has the power to blow you away. This four-door coupe combines timeless elegance with an expressive design like no other car before it. From its awe-inspiring sporty front grille emblazoned with the iconic three-pointed star, to its dynamic side contours that lead your eyes all the way back to the powerful, muscular rear section – extraordinary is the norm. And the dynamic AMG styling further enhances its chiselled form with optional 19” AMG 5-spoke wheels and an aggressive single-louvre grille. It’s a perfect blend of power and beauty.

Takes your breath away, along with all inhibitions.

Its sports car-inspired body already renders most speechless – until the moment they hit the throttle. Going from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, the CLS 63 AMG 4MATIC™ may be easily out of sight, but hardly out of mind. For the first time, a standard AMG 4MATIC™ all-wheel-drive system helps to keep you headed straight for astonishment, while the 550 horsepower Bi-turbo V8 engine propels this breathtaking performance. One step further, the new CLS 63 AMG S-Model 4MATIC™ raises the force of its sibling up to 577 horsepower to take your breath away faster than ever before.

The power of control.

Economical and sporty, the CLS’s transmission systems turn the Biturbo V8 into a powerhouse of efficiency. Closer gear ratios and faster shift operations make for a smoother, more comfortable ride.

The suspense is thrilling you.

What kind of ride would you like your CLS to have – one that maximizes its athletic potential or one that puts the emphasis on comfort? With the AIRMATIC DC air suspension system, you can make your choice at the touch of a button. Instead of conventional coil springs, an electronic system adjusts the setting of the air springs by using compressed air to create a firmer or softer set-up to suit the given situation. If the sensors register sporty driving, the suspension automatically becomes firmer. The AIRMATIC DC air suspension system also includes the Adaptive Damping System (ADS) allowing the driver to select between comfort, sport and automatic damping.

Owns the road as easily as it does attention.

With our award-winning 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system delivering optimal traction regardless of road conditions, the CLS knows no boundaries. 4MATIC incorporates the 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4ETS), monitoring each wheel for slippage and individually braking wheels to maintain the balance of power. By continuously ensuring that power is transferred to the wheels with grip, 4MATIC will keep you going, even if only one wheel has traction. The CLS 550 4MATIC delivers the outstanding control of all-wheel drive without sacrificing true sport-coupe driving enjoyment. Sharp steering and the balanced feel of a rear-wheel-drive vehicle are retained, making the CLS 550 4MATIC a joy to drive in any season.

True beauty comes from within.

There’s no shame in going weak at the knees – true beauty will always have that effect. Much like the interior design of the CLS; from the moment you open the door, the ambient interior lighting will seduce visually. The impressive union of high-quality wood, fine leather and wood trim surfaces satisfies even the most exacting design and comfort requirements.

Another hallmark of the four-door coupe is its ample legroom. Visually stunning and extremely comfortable – it makes for an interior cabin you’ll consider your home away from home.

Let the performance begin.

A world of acoustic options is at your fingertips in the CLS. The available 610-watt harman/kardon® LOGIC7® surround sound system1 gives you unparalleled sound quality from every seat with 14 precisely placed speakers. SiriusXM is standard and includes a 6 month complimentary subscription [2] featuring over a 120 channels of the best in audio entertainment. Get 100% commercial-free music from every genre, plus sports, news, talk and comedy – all with crystal-clear, coast-to-coast coverage.
The CLS features the latest-generation COMAND APS multimedia control and display system that combines audio, Bluetooth and a hard-drive based GPS navigation system – all of which can be controlled through the LINGUATRONIC voice operated control system. Plus, an intelligently designed interface supports more media devices than ever before, yet remains as user-friendly as always. Being entertained on your travels will never be a worry in the CLS – though deciding what to do first might be.

Exemplary safety.

Even in a vehicle as future-oriented as the 2015 CLS-Class, what lies ahead is never certain. That's why S-Class deploys these safety systems:

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST. The risk of rear-end collisions with the vehicle ahead is minimized by this system. First, a radar-based distance warning system activates. Then, if braking distance is insufficient, Adaptive Brake Assist builds up additional brake pressure, enhancing the driver's emergency braking.

ADAPTIVE BRAKE with HOLD. The HOLD function of the ADAPTIVE BRAKE system is activated by firmly depressing the brake pedal, preventing the vehicle from rolling unintentionally at lights or in stop-and-go traffic.

ATTENTION ASSIST. Warns the driver visually and audibly if drowsiness or inattention is detected, based on deviations from an individual driver profile the car has compiled.

MAGIC VISION CONTROL. Rather than applying windscreen washing fluid frontally, momentarily disrupting the driver's view, the MAGIC VISION CONTROL dispenses fluid from micro-jets in the laser-cut, fully-heated wiper arm, ahead of the direction of arm travel.

CROSSWIND ASSIST. Active at speeds over 80 km/h, Crosswind Assist detects sideways gusts. Automatic brake intervention on the wheels facing the wind results in a yaw effect, correcting lateral drift.

THE BELTBAG. In addition to standard adaptive front airbags, and window curtain airbags, the S-Class can be equipped with the beltbag, as an option with the Premium Rear Seating Package. It's a comfortable inflatable seat belt strap that reduces the load on the ribcage for rear passengers in a head-on collision.

PRE-SAFE IMPULSE. This modulates seatbelt tension, through the stages of a frontal impact, mitigating the injury-causing effect of the huge split-second loads to which the driver and front passenger are subjected.
