The new generation CLS Coupé. Design, illuminated.
The impressive new generation of the CLS Coupé offers fascinating design and technical innovations.
combined CO₂ emissions: 243-122 g/km.*
What once only lateral thinkers dreamed of was put into practice by the Mercedes-Benz engineers with the CLS: a coupé with four doors and comfortable rear seats. A design icon which is only surpassed by the latest generation of the CLS. The impressive new generation of the CLS offers a futuristic
LED light system, even more efficient and sporty drive technology, and plenty more. Embedded in a fascinating design with its sharpened front section, radiating even more dynamism. A perfect symbiosis of design and illumination.
A new dimension of lights.
The new CLS Coupé is optionally equipped with a very special LED light system which devotes its attention to each individual beam of light. The MULTIBEAM LED light system improves visibility in very different situations. In each headlamp, 24 out of a total of 36 LEDs are controlled independently of each other. This means that the light can adapt particularly quickly to each traffic situation and also shine in a completely new, futuristic design. Besides the camera in the windscreen, the new light technology uses four control units that calculate the ideal light distribution 100 times per second. This enables the headlamps to react extremely quickly and precisely to dynamic traffic situations. On detecting that the vehicle is on a motorway, MULTIBEAM LED additionally increases the range and light output –
without dazzling oncoming traffic. And should fog impair visibility, the extended fog light function will optimise the light distribution accordingly.
How deep can an initial impression go? The CLS Coupé will never cease to fascinate you. In the cockpit, all the operating and display instruments are ergonomically laid out, thus contributing to the legendary Mercedes-Benz "welcome effect". Surfaces in exclusive silver chrome, trim in wood, carbon or piano lacquer also give the impression of classic, sporty comfort with a handcrafted look and feel. The new free-standing colour display of the head unit with a 20.3 cm screen diagonal contributes to the modern character of the CLS Shooting Brake. Other new features are the newly designed three-spoke sports steering wheel and many choice details which noticeably enhance the feeling of high quality in the interior. Also, numerous options allow for additional individual touches – with the new optional designo interior colour concepts, for example.
Saving time is an important aim that drives the Mercedes-Benz developers. Because a quick reaction can save lives. With Mercedes connect me, the occupants are optimally prepared in terms of the management of accidents, breakdowns and maintenance, whilst the system also features telediagnosis. As a standard feature, in the event of a breakdown or an emergency the Mercedes-Benz emergency call system transmits data such as the vehicle condition and position to a rescue centre, which can then send a rescue vehicle. If desired, the dealer can pro-actively notify the driver of any maintenance work which is due or parts that need to be replaced. The vehicle automatically detects if oil or brake linings need to be changed, for example, and reports this to the dealer. There will then be a message to this effect in the
Mercedes connect me inbox. Mercedes me combines everyday multimedia with the many different demands of modern mobility, not as an end in itself but in the interests of increased safety and comfort.
A new level of efficiency, comfort and dynamism.
There is a special highlight to be found in selected models of the CLS Coupé: the 9G-TRONIC – an innovative 9-speed automatic transmission that is as yet unmatched. The automatic transmission enables a completely new level of efficiency, comfort and dynamism. Its even faster and gentler gear changes are truly impressive. If dynamic driving mode is chosen, the transmission can jump gears in order to reach the optimum engine speed immediately. Also, it is possible to shift gear manually at any time using the steering wheel shift paddles. The ECO start/stop function and the optimised efficiency of the transmission together make an important contribution to fuel savings.
