Turn the Purr of an Engine into the Song of the Summer

2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS ReviewJust like unwrapping the plastic from a vinyl record and running your hands along its cover art, stepping inside the 2022 CLS opens a world of possibilities. When its engine starts, you’ll hear the same magic as the vinyl crackling while the turntable spins.

When it comes to the luxury coupe, these motions are the revolutions of its 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. When you press its accelerator, it kicks into gear with the resonance of a bass drum:

  • Up to 362 horsepower
  • Up to 369 lb-ft of torque
  • 0 to 60 MPH in 4.8 seconds
  • Up to 130 MPH

Drivers on the open road can feel how this thunderclap settles into a smooth groove, thanks to a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission. This versatile transmission turns into a maestro that orchestrates the coupe’s powertrain.

You can change the frequency by flipping the switch on the DYNAMIC SELECT, which lets you alter the drive mode of the vehicle to fit the road ahead.

Luxury Reverberates Throughout Every Corner

It’s easy to fall in sync with the 2022 CLS. Each corner is crafted with luxury in mind, allowing drivers to relax as they tour the Maine coast. This includes standard luxury amenities, such as:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated front seats
  • 64-color ambient lighting
  • Sunroof

You’ll feel at ease throughout the year. Relax when you slide into its leather upholstery. If Old Man Winter wants to ride along, just activate the coupe’s heated front seats with memory and lumbar support.

While its seating helps you feel comfortable, the coupe’s lighting can also be altered to fit the scene. You can opt for any shade of the 64-color ambient lighting or for a natural look after you open its sunroof.

Technology Takes Center Stage

If you are driving as a solo act, you won’t be alone on your trip. Our review of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS found that its technology is a tour manager who stays on call:

  • Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system
  • Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®
  • 12.3-inch center touchscreen
  • 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster

Like a singer urging his crowd to sing with the chorus, use Voice Control with Natural Language Understanding to command the MBUX. It understands instructions with your tone of voice.

When you drive the coupe, you’ll also get to write the setlist. Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® lets you play your favorite podcasts and playlists while you drive.
