Mercedes-Benz CLS500 2005Stuttgart, Sep 07, 2004 At the beginning of October 2004 the new Mercedes-Benz Cls-class 4-door Coupé is being given its sphere release. The vehicle is based on a original car concept which for the first time features the elegance and dynamism of a coupé with the convenience and practicality of a saloon. Spaciousness, luggage capacity and day-to-day practicality are at the level of a saloon, while the layout lines possess the emotionally charged character of a coupé. With this currently original mix, the new Cls-class is one coupé generation ahead.

The technical specification also points the way to the future: additionally to adaptive front airbags, sidebags and windowbags, the preventive occupant protection system PRE-SAFE is to become available for the new Mercedes Coupé in the near future. The motor range contains two comprehensive petrol units: in the CLS 350 a newly designed V6 with 200 Kw/272 hp and in the CLS 500 a muscular eight-cylinder unit with 225 Kw/306 hp. Both engines are partnered by the new seven-speed automatic transmission, 7G-TRONIC, as traditional. In the top CLS 500 model features such as AIRMATIC DC air suspension and THERMOTRONIC four-zone conditioning offer S-class levels of convenience.

The precursor to the new Cls-class was a coupé study which Mercedes-Benz introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in autumn 2003. The enthusiastic public response to this 4-door coupé encouraged the management in Stuttgart to give the green light for series production.

As a original synthesis of a coupé and a saloon, the new Cls-class provides a great deal more added value than other coupés. In this way Mercedes-Benz is once again emphasising its role as a trendsetter for new ideas in the auto world. The sophisticated aesthetics of this coupé layout, the exclusive attributes and the trailblazing technology are particularly aimed at people who have a passion for motor vehicles and motoring.
