What You Will Like

Mercedes-Benz calls the CLS-Class a coupe, but it's actually a 4-door sedan that is considerably curvier than most sedans. It occupies a segment that also includes the Audi A7 and Porsche Panamera. While both of those models come with hatches, the CLS-Class has a trunk. For many shoppers, the relative rarity of the CLS-Class is a selling point; it looks like no other car out there.

What's New For 2016

The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class remains mostly unchanged for 2016. All-wheel drive CLS550 models now get the same 9-speed automatic as the rear-wheel drive versions. Mercedes-Benz has also ditched their proprietary smartphone plug, in favor of a more conventional USB interface going forward.

Warranty

  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Introduction

Inside and out, the shapely Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class midsize four-door not only looks great, it exudes a virtually timeless appeal. With the CLS-Class, the German automaker helped popularize what’s been called the modern four-door coupe design phenomenon. That is, a four-door sedan with a sloping roofline resembling that of a stylish two-door coupe.

Little has changed since a significant revamp for the 2012 model year. During 2016, Mercedes-Benz has been gradually making its excellent 9-speed automatic transmission standard equipment, starting with the V8-powered CLS550.

Mercedes-Benz also offers a CLS400 with a V6 engine, plus a super-powered AMG CLS63 S that promises startling performance and handling qualities. A new Night Package for the AMG model blacks out some chrome trim.

All powertrains are potent and capable. The Mercedes-Benz CLS400 gets a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine rated at 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. A brisk performer, the CLS400 never lags in traffic, and passes easily at any speed.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS550 uses the familiar 4.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8, here developing 402 horsepower and 443 pound-feet, yielding even more vigorous acceleration.

Both CLS-Class versions come with either rear-wheel drive or 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG CLS63 S 4MATIC features a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 that cranks out 577 horsepower and all-wheel drive to tame the beast.

Initially installed only in rear-drive CLS550 models, the 9-speed automatic transmission goes into 2016 CLS-Class 4MATIC versions as well. For now, at least, the CLS400 retains a 7-speed automatic. So does the AMG model.

Mercedes-Benz’s latest interior design theme looks great in the CLS-Class, enveloped in luxurious leathers and woods, seamlessly melding classic and high-tech themes. The large, luxurious cabin blends with its exquisite body, potent powertrains, and high-tech features. On the other hand, back-seat headroom is somewhat tight, at least for taller riders.

Standard equipment includes the Mercedes-Benz Audio 20 CD system, with Bluetooth audio streaming, satellite radio, a Gracenote music database, plus 10 GB of hard-drive music storage. Upgrades include a 610-watt, 14-speaker harman/kardon LOGIC7 surround-sound system, and a costly Bang & Olufsen setup.

The CLS-Class has not been crash-tested by either federal safety officials or the independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Mercedes-Benz invariably provides abundant technology, much of it safety-related. Plenty of entertainment, information, and safety features are included or available. Mercedes-Benz’s COMAND system, with an 8-inch color display, is not universally acclaimed.

Lineup

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS400 ($66,900) and CLS400 4MATIC ($69,400) include the V6 engine, 7-speed automatic, leather upholstery, heated front seats with driver’s memory, a sunroof, auto-dimming mirrors, bi-xenon headlights, wood interior trim, adaptive air suspension, and 18-inch wheels. Option groups can add a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keep assist.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS550 ($74,100) and CLS550 4MATIC ($76,600) uses the 402-horsepower V8 engine and 9-speed automatic, and upgrades including harman/kardon audio and navigation.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG CLS63 S 4MATIC ($107,800) features a 5.5-liter, 577-horsepower V8, as well as Collision Prevention Assist, an Alcantara headliner, and AMG-specific wheels.

Ten airbags are standard on each model. So are Attention Assist and Collision Prevention Assist Plus, with autonomous braking. Safety options include adaptive cruise control, Pre-Safe Brake with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitors, lane-keep assist, Night View Assist, and parking assistance.

Walkaround

One of the first models to adopt the coupe-sedan concept, the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class remains among the best examples. Despite being last updated for 2012, the coupe-like look of this four-door is far from outmoded. Tradition-minded critics have uttered some harsh words about calling four-door cars coupes, but other automakers, including Audi and BMW, have embraced the idea.

Basically, a long, arching curve defines the car’s silhouette. Short overhangs, front and rear, intensify the sleek coupe-like profile. Only up front is the CLS-Class starting to look a trifle past its prime, though the clean, sharp front-end lines reveal a kinship to its E-Class cousin and the entire Mercedes-Benz family.

Pay a hefty premium for a carbon-fiber package, and the CLS looks even more menacing. AMG models reach further into audacious form, brandishing larger air intakes and more aerodynamic elements.

Interior

Adapting themes from the latest C-Class and S-Class, the CLS interior is defiantly upscale. Trim elements in genuine wood and rich metal add to the luxurious nature of the cabin.

Up front, the interior presents a welcoming appearance. Roomy and comfortable bucket seats offer ample adjustment for taller occupants. In upper trim levels, active bolstering hugs passengers during cornering, providing even greater support.

Back seats are snugger, causing taller passengers to feel cramped. Inevitably, a swooping roofline comes at a price. Headroom is sacrificed, even if average-size adults fit in back fairly readily.

Leather upholstery is standard. Plastic elements are high-quality, while display screens qualify as stunning. For 2016, Mercedes has made Nappa leather available. Thus, AMG riders can experience even richer textures, as well as special touches that furnish an unmistakable sense of ultimate performance.

Interior storage isn’t as accommodating as might be expected. A number of small items can fit into the center console, and the trunk holds only 11 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

The entire CLS-Class model is compelling. Each offers the sort of performance found in various familiar rivals, including the Audi A7.

Despite its position at the bottom of the performance range, the CLS400 is no slacker. Rather, it delivers briskly swift, lively acceleration at any road speed.

Quicker yet is the CLS550, whose 9-speed automatic provides smooth shifts as well as sensible gear selections along the way.

For a large coupe-sedan, the AMG CLS63 S supplies near-supercar acceleration plus impressively precise handling, courtesy of the adaptive suspension. In S trim, the AMG twin-turbocharged V8 whips up 577 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.

Each CLS model promises comfortable, relaxed cruising, along with the ability to ease gracefully through curvy roads, impressive for a car of its size. If absolute limits should be called for, AMG models are ready to comply.

Visibility is mostly good. Depending on driver height, though, rear three-quarter views may be compromised by the low roof and thick back pillars. Here, the standard rearview camera and parking-assist systems can help.

Thrifty operation isn’t a strong point, but the rear-drive CLS400 is EPA-rated at a relatively frugal 20/30 mpg City/Highway, or 24 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive sinks those estimates substantially, to 19/26 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. The rear-drive CLS550 is EPA-rated at 17/26 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined, dropping to 17/25 mpg City/Highway with all-wheel drive.

Quick and loud as it is, the AMG manages 16/22 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined, and that’s with all-wheel drive.

Summary

The CLS-Class is well-equipped, but prices are hefty and a number of costly upgrades can be added. In its most expensive automobiles, Mercedes-Benz typically makes plenty of comfort, convenience, and technology features standard.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
