Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class 2.1 CLS250 CDI BLUEEFFICIENCY AMG SPORT 4d 204 BHP

The second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLS has arrived. When initially launched in 2005, this car created a new niche – a saloon/coupe crossover - and while this new version takes design cues from Merc's £140k SLS supercar it's based on the rather more sedate E-Class saloon. Four new engines are available and there is a clever new electric steering system to enhance driver enjoyment. From its good looks to its stylish interior, the CLS oozes class. Rival German manufacturer Audi has recently launched the A7 to compete with the CLS, but is the Merc a better buy? Sleek looks The Mercedes CLS is the car that started the whole fashion for four-door coupes with the first generation model. Now the second generation has far more competition now the likes of the Audi A7 and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe have caught up with it in this sector. Still, the Merc remains the car by which this class is judged and much of this comes down to its sleek, sporty looks.Mercedes designed the CLS as a coupe first and foremost, so even though it has four doors it is not meant to be the last word in saloon car practicality. Then again, Mercedes has then given the CLS only four seats, so it does miss out on some of the added practicality offered by the Audi A7 and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe as they can both carry five at a pinch. Without the fifth seat, head room in the back of the CLS is still restricted due to the slope of the roof line. It's nowhere near as cramped as in the previous CLS, but adults might find it short on space over longer drives. As for the boot, the CLS regains ground here as a superb GT car thanks to a generous load area that will easily hold a couple of sets of golf clubs.Mercedes-Benz CLS safety is excellent. Nine airbags that include the conventional driver and passenger airbags are standard. There's more – the CLS comes with additional protection including kneebag, pelvisbags and windowbags to give the occupants the very best in interior safety. New systems include Attention Assist that assesses your driving and advises you to take a break if it believes you are losing concentration or becoming drowsy. Active Blind Spot, which warns the driver if a car is passing on the motorway, is also available as an option. This also includes technology that will activate and apply braking force to the wheels via ESP if it thinks a collision is imminent. Active Lane Keeping Assist is now linked to ESP which means that if the driver veers over the white lines in the road the system will gently apply the brakes to bring the vehicle back on course. A display on the instrument cluster warns the driver at the same time. If broken lane markings are crossed the system controls an electric pulse generator in the steering wheel, which generates vibrations for a short time – a discreet but highly effective cue to countersteer immediately. Before the braking system intervenes, the steering wheel always vibrates to provide a warning. Check our website for more stock. Friendly and approachable sales team, check out our reviews.
