The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is a series of mid-size luxury cars produced since 2004 and its unique fastback design created a segment now popularly known as the “four-door coupe” range.
The original model was based on the Mercedes E-Class platform, marketed as a four door coupé. An estate (Shooting Brake) model was later added to the model range with the second generation CLS. All models are available as a high performance AMG variant, although it wasn't until the second generation CLS that 4MATIC all-wheel drive was offered.
The CLS range is positioned above the E-Class but below the S-Class and is currently in its third generation.
