Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 CDI: Road

New Mercedes-Benz CLS is currently the most Merc. And in 350 CDI guise, one of the brand’s efficient and best handlers

said imitation is the sincerest of flattery. While some of Benz’s original CLS declared the saloon would never it, others have since the four-door ‘coupe’ formula. The of Audi (with A7) and Porsche have also pushed confines but M-B’s version is now in its generation. The brand, as it was, leading the pack.

So by now the CLS has come into its own. The profile combined with a (read: confined) but well-appointed makes this an exclusive especially among its sedan in the luxury segment. The update M-B’s latest style adding a more resolved and appearance to the CLS — despite the niche it created.

The 350 CDI’s diesel is quiet at idle and a welcome, growly noise hustled. In fact, we’ve before that the V6 diesel sounds more akin to the V8 petrol offering. The diesel’s lag is minimal from standstill and hearty urge in the mid-range 3000rpm). Cruise revs around 1700rpm, helping out (high) 7s in L/100km results the week, which included city runs but also a decent highway stretches.

Some members of the aren’t fond of the column-mounted ‘stick’ for the auto but this likes its quick and easy It could be shorter, however, to confusion for those accustomed to a side indicator stalk. The seven-speed auto unit is smooth and well-matched to the diesel, and for getaways there’s paddle as standard.

Ride is soft and the suspension damping at highway speeds, a floaty feel over surfaces. Otherwise, short and travel in the CLS is serene and extremely — better than of its coupe (and sedan)

M-B’s new electromechanical steering can’t go unnoticed. It’s for city streets and during lightening and tightening for sharp Highway travel and speeds are via adequate steering feedback and which didn’t become over longer stints the week.

The test car was fitted with adjustable front-seating, complete inflatable side bolsters and support. Team members both features but the writer the driver’s and front passenger were just right in ‘standard’ form (settings as to possible to non-optioned version) due to the seat backs and small but leg cushions.

The CLS cabin’s main are space for rear (two passengers, and rear and side for the driver. Front passengers are to good legroom but adult might find headroom an in the rear. On the upside, climate is adjustable for rear passengers and the two seats are bordered by a neat console.

The CLS’s wide pillar is mostly to blame for rearwards vision. The rear is well-shaped, however, and allows sight directly behind. The version included the lane system which is unobtrusive but as by our reviewer during the international vulnerable to confused signals: for when encountering environments Melbourne’s tramway system.

As mentioned, the second-generation CLS wears latest style codes and we what we see. The brave has always looked underdone the new CLS is arguably one of the most head-turning models — even in ‘usual’, non-AMG state especially now that it can be taken seriously.
