The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is a series of exclusive cars produced by Mercedes-Benz since 2004.
The original model was a four-door fastback based on the Mercedes E-Class platform, marketed as a four-door coupé. An estate (Shooting Brake) model was later added to the model range with the second generation CLS. All models are available as a high-performance AMG variant, although it wasn’t until the second generation CLS that 4MATIC all-wheel drive was offered.
The CLS range is positioned between the E-Class and the S-Class within the Mercedes model range, and models tend to be less practical than the E-Class it is based on. It primarily competes with BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and Audi A7.
