The Sculpted, Sleek 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is "Inline" to Redefine


A post shared by Mercedes-Benz USA (@mbusa) on

When you see the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, you think of things that move. But that's always been the definition of the elegant, four-door coupe that originally debuted thirteen years ago. In the eyes of many cultures, that represents a "coming-of-age," and that's just what the mature, third-generation model promises: a moving redefinition of this car's already-signature tastes.

Those familiar with the sleek-yet-brutal persona of the second-generation model will find that, and the gracefully-arced roof that helped make the CLS-Class the definition of the four-door coupe. Up front, the three-pointed star finds itself in prestigiously-imagined company, flanked by large, angular headlights and dynamic grille treatment. Yet, it's the progress that sits behind that makes the third generation of this car what it is.

Behind the star you know lies a star you'll love--in the form of a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six. But it's not alone--the alternator has been replaced by both a 48-volt electrical system and motor that rests between block and gear box. The result is 362 horsepower and 364 lb-ft of torque, but it's how the system works that makes this a true Mercedes-Benz.

Power with boost comes in unexpected forms throughout the range, but the 2019 CLS-Class's powertrain can be seen as a revelation. Previous customers and owners will remember the V8 traditions this car once set, but in spite of being short two cylinders, the hybrid innovations add on 21 horses and 184 lb-ft of torque for brief periods of electric-only or gas-electric boost. With the bump of forced induction (turbocharging), the third-gen CLS-Class' powertrain is one part tradition, one part progress--all parts delight.

Inside, the ambiently-lit cabin and digital displays make for a vibrant place to enjoy the advantages of driving inspiration redefined. With available safety features like blind-spot warning, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control and a mecca of leather, tech, and crafted comforts surrounding you, the prestigious life awaits.
