Product Overview

Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class C257 facelift is an executive sedan in production from 2021. It is available with a range of inline-4 and inline-6 engines that displaced 1.9 to 3.0 liters.
Unfortunately, each generation of the CLS is uglier than before. Whereas the C219 was ground-breaking and featured both AMG V8s, the C257 has to do with tiny engines that buyers of Mercedes did not care for just a short decade ago. There is a myriad of hybrid and "mild-hybrid" nonsense, and AWD is forced on the consumer, even though all engines are underpowered for the pig that CLS has become.
Mercedes-Benz has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.26 coefficient of drag to show for it. Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Mercedes-Benz CLS comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners.
