The third generation of the Mercedes-Benz CLS is powered by completely new engines, with in-line four and six-cylinder petrol units. Also characteristic of the four-door coupé is the extensive range of 4MATIC models.

Igniting power with passion

Under the iconic star awaits a thrilling experience. The CLS finds many ways to move you - the CLS 350 is powered by a M264 L4 engine, while the CLS 450 4MATIC and CLS 53 4MATIC+ are powered by the completely new M256 L6 engine, which stand for dynamism and a sporty driving experience.  

Innovative power

The integrated electric motor, known as EQ Boost, provides additional torque and power over short periods to assist the combustion engine. This supplies the battery with power by means of high-efficiency recuperation. By doing so, it makes possible fuel savings that were previously the exclusive domain of high-voltage hybrid technology. Overall, the new in-line six-cylinder engine offered on the CLS 450 4MATIC and CLS 53 4MATIC+ delivers the performance of an eight-cylinder engine with significantly lower consumption.
