Mercedes-Benz penned and coined the four-door coupe design and term with the CLS-Class that appeared on the market in 2004. The CLS-Class combined the athletic exterior design of a coupe with the versatility of a sedan. In addition to having one of the more striking designs for a sedan, the CLS-Class is also a high-performance vehicle and manages to bring a high level of luxury that Mercedes is known for.

What's New for 2019

The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is all new for 2019. Besides having an all-new design, the new CLS-Class is the first vehicle from Mercedes to feature a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. The model also marks the return of an inline six-cylinder engine.


Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class

The entry-level CLS 450 is equipped with Mercedes-Benz's new turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine with the brand's EQ Boost 48-volt system. Rear-wheel drive is standard for the trim, while the CLS 450 4Matic comes with all-wheel drive. Output for the engine is rated at 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, and a nine-speed automatic transmission is standard. The setup achieves an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway, and 26 combined, or 23/30/26 mpg (city/highway/combined) with all-wheel drive.

The AMG CLS 53 brings more performance to the mix with a bespoke version of the inline-six engine. The engine produces 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque.

The base CLS 450 starts at $70,195 (all prices include the $995 destination charge), while the CLS 450 4Matic is priced from $72,695. That's not exactly affordable, and it's quite a lot more than the last model. But the CLS 450 is well equipped. Standard exterior features include LED headlights and taillights, a sunroof, 19-inch wheels, a sport exhaust system, a selective damping system, power-folding side mirrors, LED daytime running lights, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. On the inside, the trim comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, ambient lighting with 64 colors, and leather upholstery.

As a Mercedes, the CLS 450 also comes with a lengthy list of technology: a remote start system, keyless entry and go, a universal garage door opener, a 12.3-inch display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, dual USB ports, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, crosswind assist, navigation, Mercedes' COMAND system, Car-to-X communication, and automatic emergency braking.

The AMG Line ($970) adds 19-inch AMG wheels, AMG interior styling, a sport steering wheel, brushed aluminum pedals, and a black headliner.

Performance wise, the trim can be fitted with an AMG Performance Exhaust System for an extra $1,250.

CarsDirect Tip

Having a sedan with a coupe-like design and the performance of a sports car sounds promising, but the AMG variant is overkill in the best possible way. If you can afford it, it's the one to go with. For everyone else, the base 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 is more than enough. Plus, the lower price tag means you can choose from a litany of available packages. The Premium Package, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, ventilated front seats, three-zone automatic climate control, active front seats with a massage function, and the Driver Assistance Package are all worth considering.
