Mercedes-Benz CLS Overview
A Turbo-Powered, Fast-Accelerating Coupe
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS 400 Coupe comes fitted with a 3.0L biturbo V6 engine and a 7-speed automatic transmission that pumps out a confident 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. The standard version delivers this power to the rear wheels, while a 4MATIC® AWD version is also offered. Fuel economy comes in at an estimated 30 mpg highway and 20 mpg city with rear-wheel drive, or 26 mpg highway and 19 mpg city with 4MATIC® AWD. Moving up to the CLS 550 Coupe guarantees the added power of a 4.7L biturbo V8 engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission that serves up a robust 402 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is similar with both drivetrain setups, with 26 mpg highway and 18 mpg city on rear-wheel drive, or 25 mpg highway and 17 mpg city with 4MATIC® AWD.A truly top-notch contender in the sports coupe class, the AMG® CLS 63 S Coupe features a 5.5L V8 twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which is attached to a 7-speed AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® transmission that helps it serve up an astonishing 577 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. All versions of this model come with standard 4MATIC® AWD along with a whole suite of AMG® racing parts, such as performance braking, an adaptive sport suspension, a sport exhaust system, and a drive unit with E-SELECT®. All of this helps it to achieve a blistering 0-60 MPH time of around 3.5 seconds. You’ll also get 19-inch 10-spoke aluminum wheels and a rear spoiler to aid aerodynamics.
The Four-Door CLS Coupes
Starting at $66,900, the 2016 CLS 400 Coupe sports a 3.0L biturbo V6 engine that produces 329 hp and earns a 20 mpg city/30 mpg highway rating. This fuel-efficient yet potent four-seater includes an 8-inch infotainment display, leather upholstery, ATTENTION ASSIST®, and auto-dimming mirrors.
The 2016 CLS 400 4MATIC®® Coupe, starting at $69,400, includes the CLS 400 Coupe’s powertrain and feature, but swaps rear-wheel drive for 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. Despite its all-terrain capabilities, the CLS 400 4MATIC® earns an impressive 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway rating.
Powered by a 402-hp 4.7L biturbo V8 engine, a 9G-TRONIC® automatic, and AIRMATIC® air suspension, the 2017 CLS 550 Coupe, starting at $74,850, glides from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. Voice control with learning feature, COMAND® navigation, and a harman/kardon® Logic 7®** sound system are all staples inside the cabin.
Starting at $77,350, the 2017 CLS 500 4MATIC® Coupe is motivated by the same powertrain as its sibling – the CLS 550 – but offers added traction control, thanks to 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. Accompanying systems, such as 4-ETS® and specialized ESP®, intelligent balance torque amongst the four wheels.
Capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, AMG® CLS 63 S Coupe owes its power to a 577-hp, hand-built biturbo V8 engine. Starting at $108,900, this powerhouse enlivens every moment spent on the road with AMG® Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive and AMG® RIDE CONTROL Sport Suspension.
Compare the CLS 550 4MATIC® and BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe!
With a starting MSRP of $82,800, the 2017 BMW 6-Series 640i xDrive Gran Coupe sports a 315-hp 3.0L twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine, and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. However, for a lower starting MSRP of $77,350, the 2017 CLS 550 4MATIC® generates 402 hp and reaches 60 mph from a standstill in just 4.9 seconds. While the 6-Series Gran Coupe includes similar features, such as LED headlights, leather upholstery, and power-adjustable front seats, it lacks the CLS 550 4MATIC® Coupe’s plethora of standard driver assists.
