About the CLS-Class
In production since 2005, these models slot in between the S-Class and E-Class models. Moving far away from the usual boxy shapes of other Mercedes-Benz, CLS’s had a more fluid and streamlined body with the same old interior stuffed inside. Nonetheless, it proved popular around the world. Featuring both luxury and power, it’s no wonder rivals such as the Porsche Panamera, Audi A7 and BMW 6-series are trying to take sales away.
