  • Suspension

    Suspension – stylish in every movement.

    Suspension – stylish in every movement.

    Sporty or comfortable ride at the touch of a button: thanks to the DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL and AIR BODY CONTROL adaptive suspension options, the CLS offers an unrivalled way of travelling. And a special experience.

    The choice of suspension features:

    • AIR BODY CONTROL
    • DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL
    • Comfort suspension with ride-height lowering
  • Transmissions

    Transmission – smooth power.

    Transmission – smooth power.

    The best automatic transmission is one you hardly notice, because it changes the gears with practically no jolts or jerks and provides the right engine speed in any driving situation. And because it responds immediately to the driver's wishes. Its name: 9G-TRONIC with nine optimally coordinated gears. Developed in-house by Mercedes-Benz.

    Nine speeds for unrivalled comfort. 9G-TRONIC impresses with even swifter and smoother gear changes. At the same time, 9G-TRONIC helps to reduce fuel consumption. It is one of the first 9-speed automatic transmissions with hydrodynamic torque converter. The wider gear spread enables a reduction in the engine speed. As a result, the excellent driving performance remains unchanged while ride comfort is enhanced and noise levels are reduced.

  • All-wheel drive

    All-wheel drive – stylish and reassuring under all conditions.

    All-wheel drive – stylish and reassuring under all conditions.

    Reassuringly safe in poor weather conditions, with impressively high traction when driving dynamically: 4MATIC all-wheel drive. This ensures that the CLS retains its famous style on any surface and at any time of year.

    4MATIC all-wheel drive

    Better contact between the engine and the road is scarcely possible: because all the wheels are driven directly, the car delivers excellent driving dynamics. For better starting and accelerating, especially on poor road surfaces.
    Instead of differential locks, 4MATIC uses the electronically controlled traction system 4ETS.
