CLS Coupé and CLS Shooting Brake Final Edition.

Exclusive upgrade for the style icons. With immediate effect Mercedes-Benz is offering the four-door CLS Coupé as well as the five-door CLS Shooting Brake as special Final Edition models.

Exclusive style icons.

Both the CLS Coupé and the CLS Shooting Brake have long been established among customers as style icons. According to Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Sales: “We’ve produced iconic designs on wheels in the shape of the CLS Coupé and the CLS Shooting Brake. The exciting lines of the most recent versions once again set the pulse racing. With high-tech ingredients such as the innovative MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, the nine-speed automatic transmission or the modern multimedia system, they appeal to both head and heart in equal measure.”

Sporty highlights.

Visually the AMG Line underscores the sporty character of the Final Edition. This includes a diamond radiator grille in chrome, AMG front apron with striking, sporty air intakes, diamond lattice and chrome trim elements, AMG side sill panels and also AMG rear apron with simulated air outlets and chrome trim strip.

A two-pipe exhaust system with angular tailpipe trim elements in polished stainless steel integrated into the bumper as well as AMG multi-spoke wheels in two types in a black, high-sheen finish create further highlights. The technical highlights of the Final Edition models include the DIRECT CONTROL sports suspension as well as MULTIBEAM LED headlamps including Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus.

Exclusivity has a name.

Mercedes-Benz has enhanced the sportily styled interior further with a selection of fine materials. Driver and front passenger are accommodated on heated multicontour seats, finished in black leather accentuated with light-coloured topstitching. The upper and lower lumbar support areas, as well as the seat side bolsters of the backrests and the seat cushion depth can be adjusted to suit individual requirements. In addition, exclusive to the Final Edition is a sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section in leather with DINAMICA microfibre in the grip area and shift paddles in silver chrome. The brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs round off the sporty, high-quality character of the interior.

 

A sliding sunroof in the special models enhances the sense of spaciousness afforded by the CLS family. Heat-insulating dark-tinted glass, meanwhile, emphatically conveys a sense of exclusivity and functionality. As an alternative clear glass can also be selected.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS 220 BlueTEC on the way to the creative hotspots of the city.

Guest Feature: Highsnobiety and the Mercedes-Benz CLS 220 d.

On the way to the creative heads of London.

Fuel consumption combined: 4.7–4.6 l/100km;

combined CO₂ emissions: 123–120 g/km.*

Cultural, individual, modern.

Eager to test out the latest from Mercedes-Benz, the iconic German automaker gave us the keys to a brand new CLS 220 d as we toured London on an early summer day. Armed with the powerful vehicle and situated in one of the world’s most innovative cities, we took the opportunity to explore three creative locations, each of which redefines its medium’s role in contemporary culture.

 

First up we stopped by Kristina Records to learn more about NTS Radio and their mission of imploring its fans to “embrace mistakes and chaos” in a way that “comes together magically.”

Afterwards, we headed to Hosten, a concept store that acts as a platform for supporting the designers its owners believe in. Rejecting the ephemeral nature of fast fashion in favour of “things that evolve and stay with you for a number of years”, the shop successfully merges the fine qualities of a gallery with the aesthetics of avant-garde fashion.

In the CLS 220 BlueTEC on the way to the cultural Hotspots of London.

Bohemian, culinary, British.

With the minutes slipping by and keenly aware of our time left with the CLS, we paid a visit to The Clove Club to experience the restaurant’s prestige first hand. Like many London favourites, the eatery began in a flat whose owners enjoyed cooking for friends on the weekends before evolving into a local hotspot.

With a full stomach and the sun slowly setting, we reluctantly handed back the keys to the car manufacturer - but not before taking the beauty through the streets of London’s most recognizable districts.“

We want to thank Doubleday & Cartwright, Hyperdub and Kode9 for their support.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupé (C 218) brings you impressive, outstanding style, power and safety.

The new generation CLS Coupé. Design, illuminated.

The impressive new generation of the CLS Coupé offers fascinating design and technical innovations.

Design icon.

The impressive new generation of the CLS offers a futuristic LED light system, even more efficient and sporty drive technology, and plenty more. Embedded in a fascinating design with its sharpened front section, radiating even more dynamism. A perfect symbiosis of design and illumination.

What once only lateral thinkers dreamed of was put into practice by the Mercedes-Benz engineers with the CLS: a coupé with four doors and comfortable rear seats. A design icon which is only surpassed by the latest generation of the CLS.

Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupé (C 218): A coupé-style roofline and low side windows underline the elegant side view.

A new dimension of lights.

The new CLS Coupé is optionally equipped with a very special LED light system which devotes its attention to each individual beam of light. The MULTIBEAM LED light system improves visibility in very different situations. In each headlamp, 24 out of a total of 36 LEDs are controlled independently of each other. This means that the light can adapt particularly quickly to each traffic situation and also shine in a completely new, futuristic design. Besides the camera in the windscreen, the new light technology uses four control units that calculate the ideal light distribution 100 times per second. This enables the headlamps to react extremely quickly and precisely to dynamic traffic situations.

On detecting that the vehicle is on a motorway, MULTIBEAM LED additionally increases the range and light output –without dazzling oncoming traffic. And should fog impair visibility, the extended fog light function will optimise the light distribution accordingly.

Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupé (C 218): High-quality details upgrade the interior.

Modern luxury.

In the cockpit, all the operating and display instruments are ergonomically laid out, thus contributing to the legendary Mercedes-Benz “welcome effect”. Surfaces in exclusive silver chrome, trim in wood, carbon or piano lacquer also give the impression of classic, sporty comfort with a handcrafted look and feel. The new free-standing colour display of the head unit with a 20.3 cm screen diagonal contributes to the modern character of the CLS Shooting Brake. Other new features are the newly designed three-spoke sports steering wheel and many choice details which noticeably enhance the feeling of high quality in the interior.

Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupé (C 218): There is a special highlight to be found in selected models: the 9G-TRONIC – the innovative 9-speed automatic transmission.

Efficiency, comfort and dynamism.

There is a special highlight to be found in selected models of the CLS Coupé: the 9G-TRONIC – an innovative 9-speed automatic transmission that is as yet unmatched. The automatic transmission enables a completely new level of efficiency, comfort and dynamism. Its even faster and gentler gear changes are truly impressive. If dynamic driving mode is chosen, the transmission can jump gears in order to reach the optimum engine speed immediately. Also, it is possible to shift gear manually at any time using the steering wheel shift paddles. The ECO start/stop function and the optimised efficiency of the transmission together make an important contribution to fuel savings.

Tradition meets modernity: with plenty of space, superlative luxury and agile, dynamic driving. The fascinating design idiom of the CLS Shooting Brake stands for unequalled style. The first impression is of a sharpened front section with an eye-catching front bumper, a diamond radiator grille and striking LED headlamps.

The lines are reminiscent of fascinating, historic sports cars – unmistakeable from the downward-sweeping line of the roof and the so-called 'dropping line' of the side design.
