It's not immediately obvious where the CLS fits into the Mercedes-Benz line-up. The styling is similar to the CLK coupe, but its four-doors and sheer size make it more akin to an executive saloon.

Unique styling, extremely comfortable and refined
Compromised space for a four-door saloon, not as good to drive as the styling suggests

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

It's not immediately obvious where the CLS fits into the Mercedes-Benz line-up. The styling is similar to the CLK coupe, but its four-doors and sheer size make it more akin to an executive saloon. In essence the CLS is pretty unique and has few obvious rivals - but think of it as a four-door alternative to the likes of the BMW 6-Series and you're pretty much on the right track.

There's little that can match the dramatic looks while the sumptuous cabin is well built and supremely comfortable. On the road it is composed and although there's a little body roll in corners it is wonderfully refined and will effortlessly cross continents.

What owners say...

 It's not really a practical car. Although a 4 door coupé is useful.

 3.0 270bhp diesel engine gives almost seamless power.

 Four doors, huge boot, good fuel economy if you take it easy with the right foot and use the cruise control.
