2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Buyer's Guide

The 2004 Mercedes-Benz CLS four-door coupe swept the industry like the North Wind. In the years following its launch, every German manufacturer introduced a four-door sedan with an arching roofline and a coupe-like profile. Further, it was the first production model to come to market with LED headlamps—another innovation that has since spread throughout the industry. More than just a look, the original CLS delivered outstanding innovation. The second generation of the iconic model bowed for the 2015 model year, so it goes into 2016 with minimal changes. While the profile remains the same, additional surface detailing makes the CLS-Class Mercedes even more eye-catching than before. A paragon of automotive high technology, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class sedan also features intelligently networked driver assistance and safety features.
