The heart beat of a new generation
For what's coming up
Ready for any adventure
The GLS. In its element on any terrain.
As large as life.
The sky is the limit
The active multicontour seat adjusts particularly well to individual seating needs. It continually adjusts itself to the driving situation, massages the back muscles and reduces the risk of injury in the event of an accident.
Depending on the steering angle, lateral acceleration and speed, the air cushions in the seat side bolsters are adjusted pneumatically in two stages so as to give excellent lateral support even when driving dynamically. After the dynamic function is switched off the previously selected pressure in the side chambers is automatically reset symmetrically.
The Anti-theft alarm system (ATA) with tow-away protection and interior monitoring can emit a warning in the event of theft and unauthorised entry, as soon as the system is activated via remote control.
The finest materials add elegant touches to the interior of the CLS underscoring its exclusive character.
The Exclusive package consists of:
The Driving Assistance Package PLUS incorporates DISTRONIC PLUS, the Brake Assist system BAS PLUS, the PRE-SAFE® brake, as well as the new Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist functions.
The DISTRONIC PLUS proximity control system helps the driver to maintain a specified distance from the vehicle in front when travelling at speeds of 0 to 200 km/h.
KEYLESS-GO is an electronic drive authorisation system. The driver does not need a key to unlock or start the vehicle. The driver only needs to carry the KEYLESS-GO chip card and pull the door handle. Simply pressing the start/stop button with the brake pedal depressed starts the car.
The memory package makes frequent change of drivers much easier. It stores the individual settings for the driver's seat, steering wheel and exterior mirrors for up to three people.
As soon as a driver selects a setting by pressing a button, electric controls automatically set the seat, exterior mirrors and steering column back to the previously saved positions.
The automatic dimming function for the exterior mirror on the driver’s side helps to enhance safety and comfort.
Give the CLS an even sportier appearance – with the optional exterior sports package. The sporty tuning of the suspension enhances the dynamic driving sensation, and light-alloy wheels in silver or anthracite along with a twin-pipe exhaust system with visible trapezoidal tailpipe trim integrated in the bumper emphasise the sporty ambitions of the four-door coupé. The rear bumpers with black trim round off the sporty exterior.
The innovative Lane Tracking package is comprised of Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist and significantly enhances safety in road traffic.
Lane Keeping Assist can detect a traffic lane based on the road markings and, if the car is about to leave its lane unintentionally, warn the driver by making the steering wheel vibrate gently. If the indicator is operated beforehand or the steering wheel is consciously turned, the system assumes that the lane change is intentional and does not issue a warning.
