  • Suspension

    Suspension – stylish in every movement.

    Suspension – stylish in every movement.

    Sporty or comfortable ride at the touch of a button: thanks to the AIR BODY CONTROL adaptive suspension, the CLS offers an unrivalled way of travelling. And a special experience.

     

  • Transmission

    Transmission – gentle power.

    Transmission – gentle power.

    The best automatic transmission is one you hardly notice, because it changes the gears with practically no jerks and provides the right engine speed in any driving situation. And because it responds immediately to the driver's wishes. Its name: 9G-TRONIC with nine optimally coordinated gears. Developed in-house by Mercedes-Benz.

    Nine gears for unrivalled comfort. 9G-TRONIC impresses with even swifter and smoother gear changes. At the same time 9G-TRONIC helps reduce fuel consumption. The wider gear spread makes a reduction of the engine speed possible. With unchanged excellent performance, ride quality is enhanced and noise emission is reduced.

  • All-wheel drive

    All-wheel drive – stylish and reassuring under all conditions.

    All-wheel drive – stylish and reassuring under all conditions.

    Reassuringly safe in poor weather conditions, with impressively high traction when driving dynamically: 4MATIC all-wheel drive. This ensures that the CLS retains its famous style on any surface and at any time of year.

    4MATIC all-wheel drive

    4MATIC all-wheel drive

    Better contact between the engine and the powertrain is scarcely possible: because all the wheels are driven directly, the car has excellent driving dynamics. For better pulling away and acceleration, in particular on unfavourable road surfaces.
    Instead of using differential locks, the 4MATIC system employs the electronically controlled 4ETS traction system and also works together with the Electronic Stability Program ESP®, which is standard in all Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.

    *All-wheel drive only available on CLS 450 4MATIC and CLS 53 4MATIC+.
