Behold a true vision of the future in the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS. Revamped, retooled and redesigned inside and out, this luxury fastback is stronger, smarter and more stylish than ever. Arriving with an all-new inline-6 turbocharged engine and EQ Boost technology, the 2019 CLS surges with intelligent power and efficiency inspired by hybrid vehicles. EQ Boost provides more power to the engine with an Integrated Starter-Generator, adding 21 horsepower while enabling the vehicle to automatically coast or “sail” to save fuel.
Sporting signature AMG styling outside and now seating five inside, the design of the 2019 CLS is a holistic leap forward. Intelligent driver assistance features adapted from the Mercedes-Benz S-Class provide unprecedented safety and control, while the freedom to customize driving style and cabin ambience makes every drive one to remember. Innovation is more than simple iteration, and the 2019 CLS is more than an innovation: it’s a reinvention.
Mercedes-Benz EQ Boost transforms the powertrain of the 2019 CLS into a mild hybrid system, taking the 362-horsepower engine and bolstering it with an integrated starter-generator. The result is an additional 21 horsepower and substantial 184 lb-ft of torque for a palpable boost in performance and responsiveness. Efficiency is also improved by assisting the vehicle’s acceleration and allowing the engine to drop temporarily to avoid wasting fuel.
The Edge of Design
Refining its reputation as the original four-door coupe, the design of the 2019 CLS retains its tensely arched roof, smoothed by a sleek yet rigid body. Standing boldly with a wide stance, the exterior is detailed with AMG stylings including a deep front apron, flared side sills, outlined tailpipes and chrome accented central diffuser insert.
With an advanced mild hybrid powertrain and a suite of safety, convenience and efficiency technologies, the 2019 CLS is technologically ingenious. The ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine to conserve fuel while a wealth of standard and optional safety systems makes smart driving easier than ever. And with the ability to customize driving style and cabin ambiance, every trip can be tailored to the occasion.
